Just wanted to emphasize the fact that there a 1000's of kydex holster manufacturers out there, the material is tried, tested and true. But, with so many kydex options available, it can be a somewhat daunting task "sifting" through and determining what is "just another moulded holster", and what is truly functional and an innovation to the ever growing industry. In my experience, (7yrs Army, 5yrs fugitive recovery) no one, I repeat, NO ONE puts the time and effort into their craftsmanship and quality of product like Mark and his team. The Attention to detail is beyond any product I've ever carried or seen at the range, and when it's for duty carry, your life depends on it's claims to ability and function, which is damned important in my book. Furthermore, Mark reached out to me personally to ensure my satisfaction of this product, which to me says it better than anyone, they stand behind what they make, and if it's not to your standard, they will do what they can to make it right. Thanks Mark for the wealth of knowledge and a truly great product which far exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to filling my Christmas list with many more products from SAC soon!!! Happy holidays, stay safe!!
This is my first and only (currently) custom holster; I'm using for my 4" Mod.2 9mm with TLR-2. Fits great and feels natural.
Clean cut and fits well. Solid click and retention feels just right. The hood works great and can easily be removed if concealed carrying all day, then put back for a day at the range or open carry. Color matched my SFA Mod.2 4"threaded barrel perfectly...
Pre-ordered this holster for my new Beretta APX back in April. Got the holster a little while back and it has been amazing. At first, it was almost too tight where I needed to use my thumb to keep the slide from racking. After a bit of practice drawing and holstering things got much better. This has become my go-to open carry holster (and gun) now that I have it. Will likely order a foxtrot so I can conceal the APX in larger summer clothing (the hood makes this impossible on the Five-O) but this will work great for concealing under a winter jacket come the cold Wisconsin winters.
I love this holster! The wait is long but it is worth it! I bought one for my Glock19 with a TLR-2 (light/laser). The natural retention with the cover disengaged is amazing! The added safari land retention strap is a welcomed addition.. I took it out hiking with me and to be honest I slipped n busted my a** but the holstered held up with a 220lb male landing on it!
Fit on pistol and overall look are excellent
I've been talking to Mark for a long time about doing a custom Five-O mounted on a Safariland UBL. I finally pulled the trigger and had him make one for me to use with my battle belt setup. If you're looking for the Five-O you obviously need some type of holster with extra retention. Look no further as this fits the bill perfectly! Holster makers have been mounting their holsters on Safariland products for a long time, but a couple things set this holster apart from others. One thing Mark does with his holsters is eliminate sharp edges and points on his holsters. I don't understand why some of the biggest holster companies fail to do this. I don't want sharp points digging into me when I'm running my gear. The second thing he does is create holsters that have quality retention. Other holster companies have holsters where the gun will literally fall out of the holster if you turn it upside down. This is meant for competition shooting and entertainment speed driven shooting. I do not believe a "fighting" holster should have limited retention. Mark's holsters have just the right amount of retention where you don't have to worry about the holster falling out, but you can still draw it swiftly and efficiently. Thanks again for another great piece of gear.
Fit and finish are excellent
The long wait was well worth it. This is a high quality holster that perfectly fits my 9mm.
Great holster pistol fits well. Release lever is a lill tricky sometimes.
Customer service is great! The holster took a while to arrive but in my opinion, that just means they took their time making it. It's not a slim, easily concealable holster so if that's not a priority, it's a great buy. I suggest putting Loctite on all screws. Very happy with my purchase, I use it every day at work.
Waited for several weeks for this light weight holster that has a nice slim profile and is well worth it. Very nice design and keeps weapon nice and secure.
Best holster I had used. Im a Detective and looks good when well dressed and you still can have your tactical light mounted
Great Holster and customer service
