Kydex: Visit the Kydex Colors Page HERE to view Kydex Color samples and Patterns Available. A note for the Specialty Kydex Colors: These are often based on same scaled and centered designs, and this type of holster may cause some of the design to be cut off or folded over. Smaller guns may also cause some of the pattern or design to be cut off or hidden, as the sheets are pre-cut and scaled. Please take this into consideration. Your order will be made how you ordered it. This is your only heads up. We only use .08 Kydex™ on all of our holsters.
Optic / Threaded Barrel Cut: Slide mounted optics need a slimmer sweat guard and lower mounted clip in order to fit correctly. Threaded Barrels require the bottom of the holster to be opened more than usual to be able to pass through. Select which options you would like for your holster. Holsters can always be sent back and altered if you add an optic/barrel in the future.
Sweat/Shirt Guard: The sweat guard is the part of the inside of the holster that extends from above the trigger guard to the top back of the slide. The sweat guard not only protects the firearm from sweat, oils, and clothing, but some shooters find it aids in the re-holstering of the firearm. Our standard for this style of holster is a Mid Sweat guard, we feel the selected gun/option needs a lower one due to slide details, optic cuts, safeties or slide lock levels. Because we mold our holsters with training replicas, the safely is in the fire position if applicable.
Belt Hardware: Standard belt loops are durable and strong injection molded wing loops available in 2 belt sizes. An alternative is the Speed Clip also available in 2 belt sizes, but these allow easy on and off without removing the belt. Although not as secure as a closed loop, some prefer this option if you find yourself removing the holster often in your daily routine.
** Because of the extremely tight fit of kydex holsters, some accessories or aftermarket changes to the gun, need to be brought to our attention. Some examples include: Threaded barrels, taller front sights, non-factory magazine release, non-factory slide release, rail adaptors, etc. These need to be brought to our attention before placing an order, to ensure we can accommodate your weapon, or make arrangements to make it work. Failure to do so may render your holster useless **
** Check out all of the photos and other products to help you order. Double check all of the options you selected, we know there are a lot to pick from. There are no returns on holsters as they are custom made-to-order exactly how you order them **
