It seems that the holster topic has been VERY popular and has been filled with frustration from members looking for that "perfect fit" holster. I too, have spend big $$$ on holsters that simply don't fit, even though they were recommended.
Quite simply if you want a concealed inexpensive leather belt slide, go to http://www.desantisleather.com order the "Speed Scabbard", model 002. It can usually be purchased around $58.
My duty holster wasn't THAT simple!
I contacted Steyr in Austria, they told me to check out the http://www.sickinger.at website
Their Canadian agent was of no help, so I contacted the factory directly. I ordered the "Duty 2000" Cordura model, It cost Euro 40 plus shipping. They don't take credit cards, so I had to wire them funds from my US bank.
THIS HOLSTER IS THE PERFECT FIT, IT IS STAMPED MA-1.
Check out the website, they have different styles, leather and cordura.
If 'someone' in this Club, can set up an ordering system, for bulk orders, possibly we could get a discount.
I know I am new to this site, but I have shared the 'pain' and expense. You need to look no further!!!
Good luck to you all.
I STILL can't believe that Steyr USA won't import these for us. After all, the EXACT same holster is featured on their International website under "accessories".
I would include photos, but go to http://www.sickinger.at it is all there!!! arty:
I followed the advice of radinusa and contacted Sickinger. Really nice guys, very polite and helpful.
The ordering procedure is quite weird: first order through mail the products you want, then they reply with cost and shipping costs, you confirm the order, they start manufacturing your order and when ready they mail you their bank details to transfer the money. A week later they post the parcel. :doh:
I ordered two of their products YAQUI and LIGHTNING "FBI". I can only say that their products are TOP quality (leather, design, fit). Really amazed by the quality of their products and quite cheap (given the top quality).
They have a large range of leather products, I will definitely order some more shortly...
