*UPDATE* Holsters are now available see page 2 for more info!

As some of you know we are in the process of releasing a new Mastermind AIWB line of holsters. We are getting closer and hope to have holster in stock within 3-4 weeks. We will be making them in production runs so when they are in stock they will ship within 1-2 business days!

Initial holster offerings are for Glock, our first holster is G17 length and gen5 compatible (so it can also accommodate a 19, 19x, 45, 26). Initially we will only be offering right handed holsters.

Features:

.093 material thickness

Blackened stainless steel hardware

Dark Wing

DCC Monoblock 1.5

2 position adjustable ride height

Comes with Foam wedge (all new design to work specifically for our holster)

RDS/optic cut

Optimized sweat guard

Contoured muzzle

Suppressor height sight channel

Ramp/funnel design for easy re-holstering which also reduces front slide serration wear to body of holster when using gen 5 pistols

Vibratite VC3 threadlocker applied to all hardware

Here is a pic of the new holster, production versions will have a traditional haircell texture for its abrasion resistance.

What Ranger said & any idea on MSRP w/ these?

For 2021 the current plan is to roll out a line of holsters for all the most common Glock models and we will go from there. We will make anything that there is enough demand for.

The MSRP on our new holster will be less than $75 dollars and will ship typically within 1-2 business days so it is going to be quite a deal.

Thanks again to everyone here on PF for the support.

Definitely watching with interest. Had one of your previous iterations of holsters and was impressed with it, especially the quality/price ratio.

Yes we are planning on having a light bearing version, it will be X300 and 34 length compatible with open muzzle, however we will be releasing a 48/43 holster prior to the WML version.

We are not planning on releasing anything for 2021 except Glock holsters, we have a 48/43X that will be released shortly and it will be followed by a 34 length x300.

Excited to try this since I just got an optic so was planning to pick up a holster with an optic cut. Love your belts and heard great reviews from prior holsters so have been planning to try out a holster from you guys eventually, and this seems like a perfect opportunity especially given the fact they're in stock and there is no wait!

Glad to hear our belts are working for you! We are happy to be back in the holster game and to be able to offer in stock holsters with all of the specialized features that make a great AIWB holster at what we feel are reasonable prices.


48/43X MOS frame rail friendly?

Yes the 48/43X will be MOS compatible.

For anyone that is interested in being notified when the 48/43X holster is up on our site you can sign up for the wait-list by using the below link. The notification will be sent out via the wait-list first then via newsletter and posted here on PF.

Mine arrived yesterday in the mail. First impressions is that this is a lot of holster for the money. For $50 you get a purpose built AIWB holster with the Wing/Claw and a really good foam pad. I wore it around the house a little bit and then to the grocery store last night, and I've worn it for a few hours this morning outside watching a brush pile burn. Seems like a winner so far.

Is the retention adjustable or fixed?
Asking to see if it might be a good match for the Enigma system.

Designation is appendix. Would this work well carried at 3 0o'clock?

This is a dedicated AIWB holster so in its current configuration no. The wedge and wing can be removed (you will need shorter retention screws/posts once the wing is removed) There is no cant built into the holster so if cant is desired the only way to get any would be to loosen the clip and rotate it which will offer a slight amount of cant.

I got one of these and like it overall, using a G45 with DPP. I don't care for the belt clip, will convert to ptd loops. Removed the wedge. The dark wing is more prominent than I like, it's hollow and can't be ground down so that will get subbed out. Overall, solid function and value. Will be an "easy button" for many.

I have been wearing mine about a week and like it a lot.
Been using a DSG and JMCK and I think the Mastermind is going to be my favorite.


I like the clip and how flat and small overall the holster is. Conceals G19 great and is comfortable.

I thinned the wedge .25 of an inch and ground the wing a tad.

You can most certainly sand the Dark Wing down and reduce the standoff, even if you create a hole, it won't weaken. This has already been done by quite a few folks. The places that will impact it structurally aren't places folks will want to sand down.

I am not sure of a time frame; I do know that we will not have lefty support in 2021. I know that is annoying to left handed shooters.

Holsters need to be restocked but are currently on the back burner for a while as we are still a two-man shop and we have our hands full since the launch of the Covert and the new line of pouches. We have a small number of 48/43X holsters left, if anyone is interested in them here on PF please send me a PM.

Any chance those holsters ate coming back soon? Looks like a great design and good value.

Currently we are unsure if we will be able to bring holsters back.
