    Works great, but wish the holster would cover the entire trigger guard. I'm skinny with bony hips and I can feel the holster dig into me when I'm sitting down.

    Security Use
    Great holster at a great price! I got my Serpa CQC holster to use in plain clothes and for security work in less crowed areas. The manual says not for duty use but myself and plenty of others have used it for security work and it hasn't failed us. If you are gonna use this for duty please keep in mind this is a level 2 retention holster and can be easily drawn from a second party.
    ProsGood retention, multiple ways to use this holster and a great price
    ConsCan't conceal unless wearing a large jacket.

    Not a fan of the belt clips
    Got an older version this holster, without the retention, and its belt clip is different. The older one has a fold-over tap that secures in place with a screw. Thus, you can custom fit your belt size. This version of the holster has a fold-over plastic clip that snaps to itself, and only fits in pre-set holes. This, your belt loop size may be bigger than your belt, allowing the holster to move about up and down, and I do not trust the plastic clip to stay clipped to itself. Looks like a weak point in the design. I removed the screw clips from the old holster and am using them here.

    Great Holster, awesome price.
    The holster fits well - close to the body (using the paddle). I like the adjustable cant. Fits my LWC very well. I'll be getting another!
    ProsCompact, close fitting, secure , easy to draw. Dual attachments included for paddle and belt slide. Adjustable cant.

    Made for FNS 9/40 Longslide
    I had to cut appx. 1.5" from the bottom of the holster to "fit" a regular FNS 9/40. It works without trimming it, but it's really long. Aside from the length, the holster is awesome. It is very quick and natural to draw. I have several nice leather holsters and it is quicker and more secure than all of them.
    ProsQuick Secure Positive "click" when holstered Concealable*
    ConsToo long for a standard FNS 9/40 *Does not "hug" body for concealed carry.

    Do you make this one for glock 35
    2 Answers
    If you choose the option for a Glock 17/22/31, it will fit a Glock 34 and 35. The tip of the barrel will stick out from the end of the holster about an inch, but the locking mechanism will still work as designed.
    on March 24, 2013
    The Glock 34 and 35 will lock in properly in the Glock 17 holster but will stick out from the bottom of the holster by about 1" exposing the front sights. Becuase of this we do not reccommend using the Glock 34 and 35 in this holster due to the safety concerns of the weapon sights potentially catching when unholstering the weapon.

    Is it compatible with MARUI NIGHT WARRIOR ? can i put on my tactical vest MOLLE ?
    6 Answers
    My holster specifically is for my Si P226 and not for a light so I don't know about the light but it is easily mounted on any vest. Be Aware that it rides a bit high and angling it would be best.
    on December 6, 2016
    from Woodinville, Washington
    Short answer is probably. I am assuming you are talking about a Tokyo Marui airsoft 1911 replica. If it does not have a railed frame, it will almost certainly fit. If it does have a railed frame, there looks like there is extra square-bottomed space for that in my holster (Colt 1911 Govt, right handed) so it will probably fit. That said, I use this for an airsoft replica as well, but I do not know if it will work for your specific model. To mount on molle/pals you will also need a Blackhawk S.T.R.I.K.E. CQC Ambidextrous Platform.

    I am not familiar with the Marui Night Warrior however you order your BH CQC Serpa for the model pistol you own I have three the come with a belt or paddle attachment. depending on your vest set up they can be used with molle gear. Holster extremely durable and well made.

    The holster comes with a paddle and a belt slide. I do not think it will work with a Molle attachment. As for fitting your airsoft gun, I think if you can find a real 1911 with a rail that is listed for this holster, it will fit. My 1911's do not have rails, and the fit is perfect. My guess is that if you bought a holster for a standard 1911 it WILL NOT FIT your gun.

    As long as they have a holster designated for the .45 it should. I recently retired from the feds and was a Firearms Instructor and Glock Armorer for my agency. We carried the Glock 22, .40 caliber. We used the Blackhawk for many years and I really liked the quick draw capability and retention as long as the release button wasn't pushed down. Because you release the lock with your trigger finger when pulling up out of the holster, remember not to have a death grip on your firearm or slide your trigger finger by mistake into the trigger guard of your firearm. It is a nice holster overall.

    Will this holister fit a CZ 75 BD?
    1 Answers
    Yes, on the drop down menu the CZ 75 B is the fit that you would want to select. The only difference between the B and BD is the decocker which should have no affect on the fit of the holster itself since the holster doesn't really come close to that part of the firearm.

    For this specific holster they don't seem to have an option for the coyote color and the Glock 22. Here's a link to Blackhawk's site for this holsters so you can verify that. They only have the Glock 19/23/32/36 listed for the Coyote Color -

    I checked Blackhawk's holster selector and did not see your weapon listed as one that they build holsters for. The best I can tell you is to try our holster finder located here - That should bring up any options if any that we have for your specific weapon for holsters. As for magazines and holders, we carry both, but the magazines are typically 10 rd magazines or less. Here's a few examples of what I could find - Hope that helps!

    Will this holster fit a Sig-Sauer 250 sub-compact? I see an option for a Sig-Sauer 250 but it does not specify if it is for a sub-compact. Thank you.

    You might want to check Blackhawk's holster selector for this in case I have in incorrect or so that you can verify. But they list the P228/P229 and P250Dcc as fitting the same holster. From what I understand, the P250DCc is a compact pistol and looking at the 2 side by side, they look almost identical as far as fitting would go. But here's their holster selector that you can verify that information with if you would like -
