    J-Frame IWB/AIWB

    Our j-frame holster is being revamped and most recent orders that have seen a delay are heading out this week. The holster will remain to be largely universal in that we've not found a j-frame that doesn't it, aside from barrel length. The improvements are largely visual but also in speed. These have been one of the longer to make holsters for us and developing a new mold has made some things 100% consistent now and will be faster to produce moving forward.

    Tom, please share an image of the new J frame holster when you have an opportunity so that we can see the changes.

    When you say the "improvements are largely visual but also in speed" are you speaking of the speed of drawing from the holster or the speed of manufacture? (Sorry if I'm missing the obvious.)

    Yup. Injection molded struts or the metal clip. I posted something but got held up in the new molds and haven't followed through. Once the new model is 100% I'd like to replace the older kydex strut holsters with one of the new ones.

    Finally! We've got a few orders that have gone on longer than expected. Had some issues getting this one to where we like it but the wait I feel is worth it.



    Best part... Clip, RCS clip, RCS strut and soft loop, and potentially the RCS Claw.

    Gonna iron things out tonight and tomorrow and get the backlog out.

    Congrats, Tom. I'm happy with my spring clip version but more choices is more better for more folks.

    Vacuum formed or something else? That is a sharp looking.
