Retention holster for a PPQ 5"

Can anyone recommend a retention holster for a PPQ with a 5" barrel? looking for outside the waist duty holster. only one i can find is is the safariland 577 GLS, which i have not used. I like there ALS holsters with the thumb, but they do not make it for the 5"

Here's a nice one. https://www.lsholster.com/the-crestone-l2/

Or if you like the Safariland 6377. Yes, its for the 4", but I opened up the end of the holster a little to allow the slide to pass thru...NOW it'll accept a 5". The barrel/slide will stick thru the end of the holster.

I modified the holster to make room for a Red Dot.....in doing so, I had to remove the thumb latch mechanism. But, there ya go....a 5" in a 6377. I've modified additional 6377 holsters (opening up the muzzle end) to allow me to carry a 4" or 5" WITH retention.

Nope, after I made that post, I went and took pictures, uploaded to imgur and edited my post with additional text and picture.

I sometimes run my P99Q ( PPQ ) on duty in Safariland. The release is with a forward MIDDLE finger while grabbing the weapon...
