    What is available for holsters currently?

    Please make a simple polymer holster like the Glock factory 'combat" holster and the older polymer Steyr M series holsters that were once available. Hint-make them convertible for both IWB and OWB!!

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Here is my carry rig for my model C. It's a DeSantis IWB for an XD. Keith carries his F in a G17 holster.

    The leather Galco OWB for the Steyr M-A1 also fits the Caracal perfectly. We need some high quality kydex rigs, though...

    Blackhawk has the Serpa for it. I'm waiting on the call back to see how to order a batch. I've also got samples at Safariland/Bianchi.

    CaracalUSA, thanks for the pic of your Caracal C fitting in a leather holster made for the XD. Does it retain well and do you think just about any holster designed for the XD (Compact I assume) will fit a Caracal C?

    The best thing to do till the specific kydex holsters are finished is to find a shop that will let you test fit the holsters. I'll have a list soon from Bianchi on crossing numbers for their leather line.

    I prefer leather anyway so if there is a cross fit I would be fine for now. I know kydex needs to be more precise.
    Thanks

    FWIW, I have a Galco leather holster made for the Steyr M-A1, and it fits the Caracal F like a glove. I believe you can get it in black or tan off the Steyr Arms website.

    Here are the samples from Blade Tech and 5.11. Blade Tech is also working on some leather and polymer lined leather.

    Nice. I've got one with a thumbstrap for an MA1, and it seems to suit me pretty well. If you get the chance, could we see a pic showing the back side of the holster with the pistol in it? I'm asking because I'm curious about the relative positions of the top of the holster in back and the left-side mag release. BTW, how do you like the thumbstrap with the Caracal? The Steyr version was a little fiddly until it had seen some use.

    Understood. That oughtta be a pretty conclusive answer to the question of whether holsters are available.
