The "offset" feature of this holster allows for a greater degree of outward cant, which positions the grip of your pistol away from the body in a vertical position for more positive indexing. This popular holster also features a "drop", which lowers the placement of the pistol for an easier reach, allowing the arm to remain more extended. The Drop & Offset holster is very popular for range work and is perfect for women's carry. The loop is adjustable for three different cants, Straight Drop, FBI cant, Muzzle Forward. The holster also comes with an Adjustable Belt loop It comes with a shim for the different belt widths; this is accomplished by moving the shim to the different slots on the loop. Our holsters are all DOH. The DOH attachment can be easily removed to achieve Sting Ray status. This allows you to use one holster for different sports with different rule requirements. Also if you need the TechLok feature we sell those separately. We order all holsters with the SR belt Loop. The way we offer blade Tech Holsters give you the best value and solution. WITH DOH ATTACHMENT REMOVED, THIS HOLSTER IS IDPA, AND SINGLE STACK LEGAL.
The adjustable belt width feature does not work for me. A stiff gun belt bends the belt loop plastic away from the width adjustment arm and the arm quickly slips down to maximum belt width. A $12.99 tek-lok will probably fix this, else this would be a 1 star rating.
Extra washers are needed to allow the supplied hardware to tighten the belt loop attachment to the holster, if you decide to run without the drop offset.
I hope it can be a 5 star holster with the fixes in place, but for what it costs it should work without needing to come back and order more bladetech parts &amp; to make a trip to the hardware store for washers. P.S. , loctite on the screws is well worth the trouble.
Update - Blade-tech is standing behind their product & sending me a tech-lok. That is as it should be so I changed from 2 stars to 4. Would be a 5 except for the hassle.
Positive retention, fast draw and light weight. I'd definitely buy one for a different gun.
I use it for my XDm 4.5".
This holster was purchased for my CZ SP01 Accushadow for USPSA production division.
Great retention, and allows very quick and smooth draws. I love the DOH feature as it aligns the pistol naturally with my arms. Excellent product.
