For the first time ever we are offering a light and holster combo!

Our latest holster, the Rigel!

Rigel is the brightest star in Orion and a fitting name for a holster to carry all the lumens. We are offering for the first time a light and holster combo as well. The package linked below is designed to fit all generations of double stack Glock 9/40 pistols. (Shown is a T&E model).

Will you do a version for the 2.0 Compact with the APLc?

Is there future models with the XC1-B in the future?

The Inforce track record is making it difficult to invest into the molds.

Is there future models with the XC1-B in the future?
Once all options are tidied up for the XH35 the 300U-B and XCís are next.

Very Nice!

I know these are Glock holster packages but do you plan to release any for other models such as p30?

Just confirmed that the M&P+XH35 will work in the standard G34 XH35 Rigel. We'll try the VP9 tonight but I suspect the P30 and VP9 won't quite work. If that's the case we'll evaluate other fitments to gain compatibility with as many models as possible. That said, the HK's haven't been in huge demand so it's difficult to make a substantial investment. That could be chicken vs egg as we're not active in any HK communities and most sales are driven that way.


In addition, the G17+XC1B is almost ready.

Just ordered a second one. This rig is more comfortable than holsters for pistol without lights. Incredible. Thanks orionz06 !!

Would it be possible to get a Rigel with no Mod Wing at all? Or instead of a Mod Wing, a raised hump on the face of the holster similar to the Tenicor Velo? I found the Mod Wing to be too much of a good thing personally.

Have you tried moving the wing to the rear of the holster? I have mine mounted that way on both of my Orions. Worth trying, imho, and it only takes a minute.

Works better for me that way, both with the original wing that came with the holsters and the Dark Wing that Tom sent me a month or two back.

I am of the opinion now that I do not care for "wings" in general on my appendix holsters. Unnecessary pokey bits that don't provide enough benefit overall for me. The Rigel body has such a wide footprint already that it will tuck with belt tension. I would actually love to see a Rigel with a small raised wedge on the front of the body similar to a Tenicor Velo.

I really like the look of that setup. Are those the universal fit DCC clips? My only issue is that rear clip looks like it will rub the knuckles on the draw.

Yeah, we can just use regular screws and refund the Modwing price.

The raised bump, on a WML holster, hasn't been too durable. Too much unsupported plastic and resulting flex to make that a viable solution for us to offer. Works fine for non-WML though.

Itís the height adjustable one. It could be made to allow for more finger clearance. That clip placement does two things, spreads out the weight of the rig over more belt area. And maintains tuck
