Looks darn nice.
Bet you could build a few and sell them here :wink:

Thanks guys!

I thought about selling them but I just don't have the time to build them. The real time killer is the stitching and leather work. I can make the Kydex pieces really quickly though, so if anyone wanted me to make them the plastic bit I could do that.

Also if the site wanted to add the PDF to the articles and tutorials section that would be great!

Thanks again and I will post an update on how well it carries.

Great looking holster! I'm going to be off work for a couple of months
for surgery on my shoulder. I just might have to give that a try. That
should be added to tutorials

He guys,

I have been making improvments to my current holster. Soon I hope to have rev 2 completed and it should be a better design and easier to manufacture. I will keep you posted. Also I want to say thanks to Wulf and Mike at Galco for their support.

Rev2 ...

Well I have improved the design and now it is easier to make a lot more professional looking. It carries great and I must say that I like the looks of the rivets and kydex with the leather.

Here are a few pix:

I agree,it looks great,BUT.I don't like any part of the trigger exposed.Just a little humble advice.Good luck with it.

Thanks for the tip. I will make note and make sure in rev3 it is covered more. I have been messing around and I can't see how I would get anything in there, but like you say you never know

Thanks

That's a real thing of beauty, Steve. :p

Great work! 8) It occurs to me that if your time is preventing you from making them for others, how bout if a kit was made available for the handy members who are interested in making one for themselves? Just a thought. Again, great job. :p

Wulf,

That's a great idea. I think that once I can get a kinks in the process worked out I will be able to do just that!

Currently the only problem I am having is the plaster molds are only good for about 3 or 4 runs through the thermoforming press.

I need to find a better material than Plaster of Paris and refine the mold so the Kydex won't destroy it when I pull it free.

any thoughts?

Steve

PS..Wulf I sent you an email about the J-Hook
