For those of you with Walther P99s, regardless of caliber, I am working with Sidearmor to get Walther P99 holsters into production. They will be blueprinted from the .40 Auto version so that they will work with both calibers.

In order to make this happen, we need to get at least thirty (30) people committed to ordering. For this first order of at least thirty holsters, they will be uniformly IWB and *right-handed*. (Please don't flame me about the lack of a left-handed version.) This is because approximately 100 hours go into the blueprinting process. Available colors will be black and tan. We will also get the year, 2003, engraved on the holsters at no additional charge. There will be no discount, because this order will simply make these holsters possible. Their standard price is $59.95. (I am making absolutely no profit.) See: http://sidearmor.net/catalog....43

Options include:

Black or Tan
Belt loops or J-hooks
5-, 15-, or 20-degree cant
1.25-, 1.50-, or 1.75-inch loops
New shirt tucker attachment for $5.95 extra -- see: http://sidearmor.net/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/175
New belt hook attachment (see photo below) for $9.95 extra



Once thirty orders have been collected, I will front the funds to Sidearmor, who will then start production. Shipping has not yet been decided, but may cost as little as $4.50 per holster or as much as $6.50, depending on whether I take care of the shipping, or if they are sent out directly from Sidearmor. Production is expected to take approximately two weeks once the funds are provided to Sidearmor.

If interested, please contact me at: [email protected]

Be sure to indicate which options you want, as listed above.

(Just FYI, if this order for IWB holsters goes through smoothly, I'll then arrange a similar order for their new OWB Modular holster for the Walther P99. Again, a minimum of thirty holsters will be necessary, and will be $69.95 a pop. OWB Modular colors will be black, olive drab, woodland camo, tan and gunmetal grey. See: http://sidearmor.net/catalog....150 )

Lunde...... I emailed you already from GlockTalk......
...
c'mon folks, these Sidearmor holsters are absolutely the best kydex holsters by far. The one for my Glock 17 is hands down the best kydex holster I own.

I am not familiar with this kind of holster. What kind of restraint system does it use to hold the gun in place? No thumb / backstrap release? How well will it stay in when running? What are the wear characteristics of Kydex, is it a plastic?

Sorry so many Q's

Sidearmor holsters are careully made after blueprinting the pistol that will fit it. All their holsters now have a new isometric tensioner (see photo below):



I have one of these Modular OWB holsters for my Glock 20, and the new tensioning system is outstanding. Very well implemented. You can also see it in the photos of the Sig IWB holster in my original post to this thread. Anyway, the exact fit, together with the isometric tensioner, hold the pistol in place securely. It would be secure enough for running.

As far as wear, I find that my Kydex holsters cause very minimal wear, if at all. I have holstered and unholstered one of my Glock 20s more times than I can count, in a variety of Kydex holsters, and I cannot see any wear marks.

Lunde, Thanks for the effort


I like the idea of the J-hook being away from the body of the holster, similar to the Fist IWB.

Two questions:
1) With the same design, would they offer loop attachments instead of J-hook?
2) From your personal experience, will the rivets on the attachment through the holster have direct contact with the pistol? I have Comp-Tac IWB, there are three rivets, on day one I got an obvious 10mm scratch mark permanent on my right slide. I cleaned and wiped the inside of the holster before I first used, but still ....

Thanks Dr. Lunde for the info. Those look pretty slick.

Unfortunately living in Southern California I wouldn't have much of an opportunity to carry concealed. According to the frequency you holster, you are in a different position than I.

Could be nice for shooting out in the desert, but I would prefere an OWB for that.

Yes, I e-mailed you for one and from their website it looks like much more than Bladetech offers for carry options. I hope you get the 30 responses. I have a Bladetech for my Sig P245 so this will give me a chance to try differant options for IWB. Oh, if I forgot to thank you in the e-mail: "Thanks, Andy."

We're at just over 10 holsters thus far (approaching 15). If anyone else is interested, please speak up. This order will make these holsters possible. We'll be getting some custom engraving to make this first batch special.

anyone who has used one of these. how well does their "tucker" attachment work? Im looking for a IWB holster for wearing under a tucked in shirt, this may be the answer. i have seen several other rigs on the market, but they all seem to bulky, this one may be the answer.............how long do we have to decide Dr?
