Greetings Fellow Steyrclub Members!

As many of you may know I am the very proud owner of an M40 Steyr pistol and have been using a Galco Fleth High Ride Holster to carry that pistol. (see http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterG3.asp?ProductID=1892&GunID=177)

Well, I've been seriously looking to purchase an M40A1 and would like to purchase the same type of Galco holster for it, but they don't yet offer those holsters for sale. I contacted Galco's product department today (1/17) and received a reply email from Galco immediately. Please read the email reply sent from Galco below:

The holsters we made for the Steyr M series proved to be poor sellers, unfortunately. Based on this poor showing, we will naturally be hesitant to introduce more holsters for other Steyr pistols. However, if the gun takes off and sells well, we will of course be more likely to produce holsters for it.

New holster introductions are based primarily on demand. Since you’re on a Steyr web forum, you might be able to convince some of the other members to visit our web site and fill out a Product Request Form for the M40A1 and the holster(s) you’d like to see. The online form goes directly to our R&D department, so they can keep tabs on what holsters are being requested by consumers.



Best regards,

Mike Barham

Please email Galco as soon as possible informing them of our interest in having quality holsters made for the MA1 series through their product request form. If we could get most of our 1,000 + members to email Galco they may roll out with a new line of A1 holsters. Currently, the only holsters available are either through FIST or Bladetech so it would be nice to add Galco to our A1 holster list.

THANKS IN ADVANCE GUYS!

I'm all for aftermarket support, but I don't want a holster with a thumb break.

I'm gonna email 'em anyway though. Here's to one more manufacturer submitting to the cult!

Ninja Edit: I filled out the PRF, adding all my preferences in addition to the FLETCH.
