    I was looking at getting a deSantis Tuck this, but they don't have a model for a Steyr. It's a nylon holster, so I was wondering if some model of Glock or Sig was close enough to the Steyr to make it work. Any ideas?

    I believe I saw/read (on the net so take with grain of salt) that the M series is similar to the Glock 17. I kind of doubt this myself. I believe the M series is somewere between the G17 and G19.

    a steyr is like a barn find rocket 88 with 10,000 original miles on it
    it's right under your nose, but nobody seems to know it's there

    I think he's looking to fin out what nylon holster will fit.

    Usually Nylon is set up so it will not fit any of a number of handguns in a given general size.

    One size fits nothing well, fits everything poorly.

    I use....

    http://www.natchezss.com/category.cfm?c ... N=19139121

    it was my first hoilster for generic range use. We tried 20 different holsters at the shop and this fit the M best.

    I still use it for IWB carry of S untill i can get a comp-tac CTAC. If my shirt allows, I use my bladetech paddle I bought for IDPA (pre rules changes, another reason to get the CTAC).

    I'm using a Michael's thumb break hip holster (size 21, designed for full-sized Glocks) with my M9. It works, but it's pretty tight; the Steyr trigger guard is bulkier than the Glock's. When I bought it I didn't have my Steyr along with me. The bulkiest 4" auto the shop had in stock was an H&K USP, which I tried in the holster. The USP was quite tight in it, but the holster was marked down to $7, so I decided it was worth the gamble. Based on this rather limited experience, I'd suspect that a nylon holster listed for a USP might work OK for an M.

    I slip my M9 in Highnoon Hidden Ally IWB, I have one for 229R and one for XD SC, both fits real well for the Steyr M9

    For plinking/range use, I originally bought a GunMate nylon holster at Sports Authority. I believe it is a size 12.

    It's a little long in the barrel, but fits perfectly in terms of retention around the trigger guard.

    Not a bad little holster, either. It's ambidexterous, and has both a clip and belt loop attachment. For the range, the magazine holder is a bonus also. Should be able to be used IWB also.

    I believe the size 10 might be a great fit, as it is a little shorter in the barrel, but should have the same overall body size.

    I'm giving up on the deSantis. Got my holster from Grandfather Oak yesterday, a little tight, but looks pretty good. If my XD doesn't get back from the gunsmith today, I'll use the Steyr and the new holster to shoot IDPA tomorrow. Anyway, I'll think I'll give Grandfather Oak a shot at an tuckable Undercover. He thinks he can make it where I can mount a cell phone clip, so we'll see.

    Which holster did you get from Grandfather Oak? I just ordered a Quick Companion and IWB from him. Please give a review of the holster when you get a chance. Thanks.

    I got a quick companion. I've got the retention screw backed out all the way, and it almost pulls my belt off when I try to draw. Otherwise, the holster looks great, and if I was rappelling headfirst out of a helicopter, it would be great. David said to send it back and he'd fix it.

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully David has accounted for the tight fit on QC for mine. I think there must be some slight variation in the ploymer frame on the Steyrs. The same Fobus holster I use for my M9, S9 and M357all feel different on the draw. The S9 draws much quicker than the M9. I thought it was probably due to the length difference but then when I got the M357, it drew a easier than the M9 also. Maybe it is due to the dark black finish on the frame of the M357 but the Fobus grips mainly around the trigger guard.
