The Glock 45 holster is quickly becoming one of our biggest sellers. Originally we anticipated this being big for Outside the Waistband Holsters, but surprisingly enough, the IWB Holsters are taking the lead. The larger grip threw us off, but it seems that customers are very into the larger grip length.

A Quick Holster Feature Overview:

Tough, American Made Custom Holsters: Each Custom Holster is handmade in America using .093" Boltaron/Kydex®. Using Melonite coated hardened steel hardware, our products may be the toughest in the business. Every product comes equipped with a Military grade adjustable rubber retention system, designed by us for use with our own holsters. This retention system is able to hold the most minute adjustments, enabling the end user the most custom retention settings.

More Custom Holster Options than Anyone: Quality Custom Kydex Inside the Waistband Holsters, Outside the Waistband Holsters, Duty Holsters, and Race Holsters built for over 300 firearms.

We are one of the last companies to offer you truly Custom Holsters. Choose your firearm, color, cant angle, ride height, belt attachment and muzzle coverage. 

Handcrafted, not Cookie Cutter: Each Custom Holster is designed by you and built from the ground up by us. We mold the holsters to your specifications. Threaded barrel? Suppressor height sights? Extended controls? No problem! After a quality check is done with each mold, the edges are cut. We don't use a one-size-fits-all CNC design to cut our edges- we know that every gun is different, so we cut the edges the old school way- by hand.

Because we handcraft our holsters instead of using CNC machines, we are able to accommodate more custom options while keeping the price and the lead time low.

We're gun guys- we know not every gun is the same. That's why we offer custom options for your custom gun. Suppressor height sights? Optic? Light/Laser attachment? Extended Mag Release? No problem! Just let us know what you've added to your carry gun and we'll build a holster to accommodate it.

Lifetime Warranty: Because we know where our products come from, we have the confidence to stand by them forever. If anything happens to your gear, let us know. We'll fix or replace the holster for free.
