Mod's I am not trying to sell anything. This model is NOT FOR SALE

Just want some feedback.

I recently had a customer ask for a holster but he could not make up his mind if he wanted it with or without his light. I told him one day I was going to make a holster that had interchangeable lowers. I told my buddy my idea and thought it was ahead of its time, but he crushed my dreams by telling me gcode had already built it. Frustrated and butt hurt I realized they don't offer it on anything but their RTI mounts. So I decided to give it a go

And here it is. Weapon mount that you can change from light to no light. I was going to make it use snaps but they stick out to far. So I'll have to find something to interchange them quickly but 6 screws for now











So basically 6 screws and you can change from light to no light in about 1 min with six screws. (To much)

I guess would depend on economics/cost savings.

Still would be easier to just have two holsters.

That is awesome Matt, I never even dreamed of making something like that. I would probably buy one, what the cost you thinking on these?

A light equipped holster is around 70-85. A regular holster is 55-70. That all matters on the mounting hardware.

So I was thinking in the range to make it save the individual 20-30 bucks over buying two separate holsters

Do the screws hit the slide?

Is there more rubbing than a normal holster?

That's a pretty significant savings. I think it would go over well.

Agreed. But they are a PITA to make. Got to see if it's worth my time

Your holsters have become so much nicer looking and form fitting than the first one I got from you, but it's still working perfectly.

I think it's a good idea, and I can see the benefits.

What about taking this a step further and letting the customer pick their mounting style, say paddle holster, and make the scabbard part interchangeable. Buy one paddle, then certain scabbards, say 1 for the Glock, 1 for the Sig, and 1 for the 1911, and they can change between but only need one paddle.
