Custom Kydex Holster Maker

15 posts in this topic

Just wanted to see if anyone knew of someone that can make a custom OWB Kydex holster from my handgun. Prefer someone in the Monmouth/Ocean County area, but if you know someone is going to one of the upcoming Oaks gun shows, that would work, as well.

In regards to the actual holster, black and a quality build (good thickness, good attachment).

The gun is my CZ SP-01, but including their Tactical Block to carry in the holster.

There is a bayonet for it, but wouldn't be put in the holster... for obvious reasons. The block gives some weight to the front of the gun, not something I need to carry... but like options. I have a Serpa for it, as well as a Bravo Concealment holster for it and a Streamlight.

Thanks.

I was turned on to them last weekend, by someone who uses them exclusively. Sent them an email, and they won't do it.

Said they are unable to do it. My post completely mirrored what I sent them.

I'm sure there is an up and coming Kydex maker that is dying to get his or her name on the interwebs.

Kind of hoped there was one local, who could do it with my gun in hand...

Anyone know the company that does them at the Oak shows? The last one I went to, they weren't there, just a leather maker. While I definitely like leather holsters, rather go with Kydex... as I already have one for the gun/Streamlight (have others for different guns; SIG P938, Glock 30S, etc).

Why can't you get Kydex yourself and make it?

Because I prefer to have someone familiar with doing holsters make it...

Same reason why I have certain gunsmithing things done by a gunsmith. With costs, time, and chance of messing it up and still having to find someone to do it right... I prefer to have someone do it right the first time.

Yeah but it's just Kydex, if you mess up just start all over.  I only say this because you are asking for a unique holster that is probably going to be next to impossible to find.

Understood... which is why I wanted to see if someone knows the maker at Oaks, then I can contact them to see which show they are going to be at.

The last one I went to, brought the gun, which wasn't an issue (L/E at door just toss a zip tie through the barrel), but rather go there knowing I can get it done. Carrying a full-size CZ around in a soft case isn't the funnest experience, especially when you buy a rifle, pickles, and meat. If I know I'll be walking out with a holster, then I don't mind the anchor as I go through the aisles.

    • My question is, why were you clocking them so hard in the first place? I have probably eaten in a couple thousand restaurants in my life and could never tell you anything so detailed about something someone else ordered with the exception of it was carried passed my table and I said "Ummm that looks good". There must have been something that brought your attention to their table?
    • Love mine...... trigger even better after "fix" Welcome to try mine....
    • Fixed trigger group is much better than the previous version.  Cleaner break and better let off and hardly any after travel.  The upgrade is a definite plus.  Find the grip size and color you like and you are set.  Different slide and frame same trigger.  Nice solution.  Get a full and a compact kit and away you go.  Of course we are neutered at 10 so there is a consideration. All in all. me like, big time.  It does not shoot like a Crock 17,19, 22.
    • The funny thing is that when you start fishing from the shore, you cast toward the middle of the lake and wish you had a boat to get there. Then you get a boat and spend all your time cast toward the shore.  Go figure. 
    • Based on what you're saying your film was severely underexposed.  The negatives were pretty much clear weren't they?  If overexposed they would be very dark. If you were shooting f2.8 @ 1/100 with 200 iso in a  darkened room that was underexposed. Most people don't realize the difference in the intensity of light.  Bright sunlight is thousands of times brighter than average room light.  Exposure for a brightly lit gym with 1600 iso would be f2.8-f4 at 1/250.  A well lit office (much brighter than your average home lighting) would be f2.8-4 @ 1/30 with 400 iso. I did a lot of available light photography.  Theater, art, and surveillance photography.  I used 1600 for color and 1600, 3200, or 6400 for black and white.  Most times with b&w negative film it was push processed. For example 400 iso shot at 1600 by developing it longer.  Some color slide films were capable of being push processed but never knew anyone really successfully pushing color negative film. When you push process b&w film what you do is expand the tonal range in the negative.  You can also shoot b&w at the rated iso and extend or shorten developing time to expand or contract the tonal range.  That's getting into Ansel Adams and Minor White stuff that Adams popularized as the "Zone System of Exposure".  Really way beyond what we're talking here.  I did a bit of work with photographic chemistry. All film has a certain degree of exposure latitude. It varies with different types of film.  That's a range of over and under exposure where you good still get a decent print.  2 stops either way is very good.  Slide films has much more narrow exposure latitude. Using 200 speed film in a brightly lit office would call for f2 to F2.8 @ 1/30.  Not knowing how much light your "darkened room" had, I would guess your exposure should have been 1/4 or 1/2 second with iso 200.  You really should be using a tripod.  You can't handhold at that speed without camera shake.  If you're shooting anything that doesn't stay still you're going to get subject movement. Try using faster film if you want to shoot low light.  If you want to try black and white try Ilford XP2 film with a iso speed of 400.  It is black and white film designed to be processed in C41 chemistry the same as color negative film.   It can't be printed on color or black and white paper.  It normally comes out sepia toned when printed on color paper but if the printer knows what they're doing they can adjust the filter pack in the enlarger to make true black and white. Do yourself a favor and when you get color negative film processed pay the few bucks extra and have them cut a cd.  Much easier to knock out a few extra small prints that way.
