Holster issues

I bought a new ppk/s recently and picked up Fobus paddle holster online just for a range holster. Come to find out, it doesn't seem to fit it. It's like the trigger guard is too big or something. Upon further research, I saw that the holster I bought is labled for the ppk. Do ppk/s and ppk normally use two different holsters...or is this something goofy with the 22lr ones?

It is quite possible that a holster fitted for a PPK will not work for a PPK/S as the grip is longer. Also, not all PPK’s can use the same holster depending on the style of holsters. As an example, I ordered a Sneaky Pete holster for the PPK but my S&W PPK would not fit with the magazine with finger grip. (The ad showed it would) The problem was the extended tang. I swapped it for one that was made for a PPK/S and it works for both my PPK and PPK/S . 22LR.

If all you're looking for is a '..range holster..' then it's hard to beat a basic padded nylon holster (w belt-loop & belt-clip + thumb-break strap) often found in places like Walmart for $10-$15. It will fit several smaller pistols (including PPK & PPK/S)

As example-- https://blackhawk.com/products/holst...xtrous-holster

I purchased a Fobus holster for the PPK. It fit my FEG SMC 22 pretty well. The Walther PPK did not fit so well.
In general, a PPK holster should also fit a centerfire PPK/S. The Umarex 22 PPK/S may or may not fit.

A Bianchi 3S IWB holster for the Walther PPK fits the PP, PPK/S, PPK, FEG PP knock offs, the Umarex PPK/S 22, the Bersa Thunder and similar firearms.

I would look at leather holsters for your pistol instead of plastic.

I think a soft holster of some kind is what I'll have to do. I plan on getting one of the new PPK when they come out, so maybe the Fobus one I bought will be a range holster for it
