    Looking to get a leather paddle holster from blueline for my S9-A1 but they only list a M9-A1 and I asked and told him
    the only difference that would matter is the barrel is 1/2" shorter ( the mag well will not come into play) .

    Is this correct ?

    Is there any other paddle makers that have a S9-A1 mold ? I really prefer a leather over plastic.

    Then the girl you talked to at Blade-Tech is wrong. The frames are identical, with the exception of slide length and grip length. The kydex holsters they make retain at the trigger guard - a M-A1 holster will work with a S-A1 pistol, but there will be some "dead space" at the bottom, which almost negates the "benefits" of carrying a smaller pistol (though a smaller grip should theoretically print less). Several of our members carry their S-A1's in M-A1 holsters.

    They're just covering their @ss.

    I have an M40A1 and and S9A1, they both fit perfectly in every single holster I have.

    I could not compare as my M40 is not an A-1 but I think I was the first to get the S9-A1 , atleast on this forum as I got one
    of the very first batches brought into the USA , now if I can do the same with S40-A1 I'll be all set.
