I’m sure this is already inside here somewhere but I stink at forum necromancy:

Are holsters for M9A1 compatible with the M9 Gen 1?

Thanks for help!

The Gen1 will fit an A1 holster but it won't have proper retention, you're far better off getting a holster made specifically for the Gen1

Ok. That’s what I was thinking. This brings me to a more difficult question: Where can I get a holster for gen 1? I can only find any for m9a1... ☹

Are you looking for leather, kydex or hybrid?
IWB or OWB?

With a quick look, it looks like

http://www.nelsonholsters.com (leather)

https://www.crossbreedholsters.com (hybrid)
You'd want to order for the European Rail

Also

https://www.fist-holsters.com
They make a variety of holsters, all leather, all kydex and hybrid of sorts (it's a kydex lined leather holster as opposed to a leather back with kydex shell)
But the way they list the guns is odd,
STEYR MA1
STEYR 9/40
STEYR M SERIES
STEYR S SERIES

So it looks like they do, but you'd have to contact them (maybe email a pic) to be sure


There are others out there as well, go thru the holster maker list at the top of the forum (some of the links are dead, so it may take a bit of looking)

You might also try and find a local kydex "bender" or leather worker who will make one for you.

I’m leaning toward a crossbreed slide... Will let you know.

The OP was looking for holsters for the Original M series pistols, not the new(er) A1's

Optics Planet has some Safariland holsters that are listed for the M40 (not M40-A1) that would work for the M9 as well. Can't say for sure if they are actually for the original M series but other holsters listed on the site specify A1 (and Safariland did make M series holsters in the past)

I ordered one from Crossbreed. They actually carry a full line for the euro rail version... :D
