Default Model 17 firing pin

is it possible to mount a 617 firing pin into the 17 model, since i cant find a new firing pin made for the 17 and i also want the 617 pin because of the square end of the firing pin.
So i can be able to use a lighter main spring.
also, does anyone of you have any other tips for a lighter double action?
Every internal part is filed and smoothend and springs changed and mainspring changed and made adjustble by inserting a lock screw for the mainspring.
But i want my DA even lighter
