Aliengear Cloak Mod OWB for Creed

Got my Aliengear Cloak Mod OWB. Here are my notes...

1. some assembly required. used medium expanders and longest screws. wanted to use large expanders but screws not long enough.

2. outer shell perfectly molded for Creed, including some slide ridges. (image 1)

3. inside rubber membrane rubs on slide release lever (image 2). tried adjusting tension screws to bare minimum while still getting snug fit.
Creates a slight rub on slide and slide removal switch (image 3).

4. comfortable on hip. paddle mount fits standard dress belt. belt mount has multiple cant positions.

rating: 3.5 of 5.

Yea thats what happens. I told ya guys without having any experience with any plastic type Holsters.

About 30 reholsterings and the finish is gone from the gun. Rub with sandpaper 15 minutes on the gun and you have the wear of about 300 reholsterings.
Unless you have an wholly stainless steel pistol.

Thats why I went with the Beretta Pico 380 acp since it's completely stainless and Plastik. However it showed up with an huge double marr on it's slide rear end where probably the National Gun Agency at registering badly handled the pistol.
Any plastic Frame of the pistol will scratch and dull off over time on the spot it contacts any kydex Holster.
Any cushioning within the kydex will be gone after 30 holsterings (due to use of glue and thin materials).

I sold the seconde leather Holster (Soviet makarov Military style) locally. The pistol is completely enclosed and can not scratch up. But I guess lots of People dont care anymore if their guns are scratched in our "el cheapo" plastic pistol Age.

I go for leather self made Holsters. Satisfaction and functionality gueranteed!
Because of These dull scratched spots I terminated buying any Holsters from Amazon or factory made (often they have metallic objects like Buttons which are "poison" for the finish of the pistol). It's cheaper for the manufacturer to snip in afterwards an metallic button and who cares about the customers pistol anyways.
The finish on the Creeds slide is already eaten half through as it seems. Leather or Cloth is the way to go.
Most customers prefer appearance before functionality. Well, let them scratch up their pistol hoping they buy another 400 US$ pistol soon when they become unhappy with the Looks of the scratched up gun, isnt that the reasoning behind those Holsters?
Gun industry works well together with Holster industry.

Yesterday I made my own leather Slippers (footwear) using used PU soles from the ones I had (and broke). Way more durable and comfortable than local handmade leather ones. And cheaper as well.

That Kind of buff (finish dull buff) I have on one side of my Taurus PT92 AFS stainless as well. It must have been dragged with force over a wooden table as it Looks like at the National Gun Agency. It came when new like that.

So we can say this:

the gun industry congratulates you!
You just scratched up your new pistol with an affiliate Holster industries product as intended and are by now eager to spend your precious Money for another pistol which you will put in again into an Holster in order to scratch it up again.

Talked to Alien support - they sent out 3/4" screws.
Used those with the 5/8" expanders/spacers and now pistol fits much better.
Great snug fit, and no scraping of the rubber membrane or residue on the slide.

Thanks Alien!

Here's the leather IWB holster that I bought for my Creed:

https://www.craftholsters.com/iwb-le...umb-break-p126

Made in Slovakia, shipped from Slovakia, so about 4-5 wks lead time. Great product, great fit!

~$65.00 (there maybe be a currency conversion charge (dollars to euros) if you charge it).

I don't EDC it (yet), but I wanted a fitted holster to keep it in my range bag.
