They offer Kydex holsters and can order with 3 weeks lead time. I ordered one for 43.50 with thumb break. Will let everyone know how it works out in three or four weeks. They are in my hometown of Houston. Go Astros!!! They will also send out a catalog that of course doesn't have prices.

Thanks for checking into it for us! Be sure to post pictures... lots and lots of pictures. 3-4 weeks sure beats Blade-Tech's 5-8+ weeks, and this might be an attractive alternative if quality is on par...

Front Line are made in Israel.
I spoke with the Importer and she was checking into if they made for the A1 series.

:) Thanks SD, I just bought an Isreali Bul M5 Ultra .45 and had decided the only way I'd get a holster was to make a cast of the pistol. Frontline makes holsters for it :lol: Ill call this morning and order.BTW, this is a very nice little .45 and will make me a great little CC weapon.

Their pistol list just says Steyr, no model numbers listed at all. If they did make them for the M40 A1 it looks like they make a nice level II and III duty holster.

if you go to the bottom of the kydex page on their website, there's a pretty good explanation of it.

where as most kydex holsters are molded so that they grip the front of the trigger guard for the satisfying click, this design has a device that positively latches onto the trigger guard.

to draw, you push down on the gun and use your trigger finger to push in a little button that releases the trigger guard.

advantage? incredible retention for people who will do lots of running/tumbling/fighting while wearing a gun. also, most criminals would be foiled in an attempt to remove the weapon from the holster.

the downside is that you're using your trigger finger to push a button directly over the trigger as you draw the weapon. presumably in a time of distress and when fine motor control is rapidly decreasing as muscles are instinctively tightening.

a very real potential for accidental discharge exists and i've heard anecdotal evidence of this. but we've all heard unsubstantiated anecdotal evidence.

the guy who works at the range loves his and is pretty fast drawing from it.

would be great if everything from frontline were available for the steyr.

I asked Front Line if they made a holster specifically for the M9A1 and this is what I got back:

Israel replys "Our holster fits Steyr M9 9mm. M9-A1 does not exist here, therefore we can't confirm if it's OK. One of our customers says that he used our holster for both, while changing the screws".
