    I posted recently about my very positive experience with a Comp-Tac C-T.A.C. Kydex IWB holster http://www.comp-tac.com and there seemed to be some interest. However, I bought my holster used and Comp-Tac currently doesn't list the Steyr as an option. I emailed them about it and got this response from the general manager:

    <<
    If you have any members in the Houston area that would be willing to allow us to use their M9 than we could find a way to make it happen. Thank you, J.B.
    >>

    I ended up speaking with him on the phone (he's a super nice guy btw)and he said that he had made about a dozen before but needs the gun to make a new mold. Maybe if there is enough interest and someone could get them a gun, a group buy deal might be able to be worked out.

    In any event, I highly recommend this holster if you carry (or even compete in IDPA), in my personal experience it's that good.

    Well that kinda sucks.

    Does any other company make a decent kydex IWB for the damn Steyrs?

    Think you could post a picture of yours for us?

    Pictures

    Here are pics of my S9 in the Comp-Tac C-T.A.C. holster. As I mentioned, the S9 fits perfectly, but it was supposedly designed for an M9. It comes with 3 belt loops with are modular depending on the angle of cant you want. The mounting tabs are modular with some cool alternative attachments for ultra concealment - check their website http://www.comp-tac.com for the options. Look at the fastening hardware, this is top-notch stuff. The belt hook design and how it attaches to the holster makes this thing as flat as it could be. This design is so good I am getting one for the 1911 and Sig 228.

    Hihoslva - you can also see my butcher job in trying to use your skate tape template. Long story short, I didn't find my disc so I couldn't get the resolution right. I resized the pic in another program to get it close and then cut it as close as I could. I went with more tape over the grip area than your template because I wanted as much gripping surface as I could get. It's ugly, but it seems to work well which is my main concern. I haven't been to the range yet with it.

    Thanks again for all your help!

    That's great madecov. The GM goes by J.B. and his email is sales@comp-tac.com. You should mention that you're from the Steyr forum and you're responding to a post by Jeff de Gracia about his holsters. I also spoke with him tonight and he is a very nice guy. He said they don't have an FFL, so you being local to them would be great.

    BTW - what's a deactivated M40? Does that mean it is incapable of firing? If so, why?

    Deactivated is just that, it is an actual slide and frame that can not ever be fired because it was deactivated by the factory. The slide has some cuts in it, thae frame also. The barrel is plugged. The fire control group has been welded so it can't trip the trigger

    I am an FFL so no problems there

    I am in the Houston area and have a relationship with Comp-Tac. If you want a holster, let me know and I'll provide whatever support you need.

    Awesome! Thanks IDPASteyr! We need to keep Steyr on the minds of as many accessory manufacturers as we can.

    Yeah, that is so cool of you guys to help out other interested forum members, what did people do before the Internet???

    Do you know if their magazine pouches fit the Steyr mags?

    Thanks

    Don't know the answer to this but we definitely need mag puches made for Steyr mags. I think Mr. Stillwell at Grandfather Oak is working on some. 8)

    For IDPA I have been using an Uncle Mike Kydex Double Mag paddle which fits the M9 mags perfectly. I could use it for concealment but it sticks out pretty far and is not as elegant as the Comp-Tac or Grandfather Oak stuff.

    Wow, fellas - this is excellent.

    "Big ups" to you Houston guys for all the help.

    With the rave reviews for this holster, I'm convinced I want one. Hopefully we can get something going.

    I'm anxiously awaiting any word on this.

    Thanks again boys.

    Great, thanks for the confirmation. I haven't heard you weigh in on holsters yet, do mind if I ask what you're using with your Steyr in IDPA competition?

    Thanks again!

    I recently switched from a Comp-Tac locking paddle to their new belt holster. I use a #2 mag pouch. I have used Comp-Tac equipment exclusively since I started shooting the Steyr. Greg, JB, and the rest of the people there are true professionals who understand holster making.

    I did have to slightly modify my holster to block any of the dreaded "daylight" showing in the area of the belt. This was very simple and entailed using a heat gun and adjusting the back of the belt loops. No big deal. (This is due to a recent change in the IDPA Rulebook.)

    Thanks, that looks like a good setup. I'm new to IDPA, but when I read the 2005 rulebook even I was scratching my head. I understand Bill Wilson's desire to keep it from becoming Formula One-style cost prohibitive, but it sure has made a lot of people upset about one thing or another.
