Kydex holster

Every Pirate has a few few firearms stashed here and there. This is a place to talk about everything from front-stuffers to machine guns and everything in between.

Kydex holster

Postby DIY_guy » Sun Sep 27, 2015 7:44 pm

A member of the archery club won a handgun and she wants to wear it as a sidearm while running her trap line so she asked me make a holster. Back to the bin of kydex.

The first step is to build up the areas that can be trapped in the holster such as the trigger guard and front sight.

Image


Image

Trial run

Image

Bake as 350F

Image

Press into foam on my homemade press.

Image

After 10 minutes of cool down.

Image

Image

Then make the other half and while clamped together, cut the ends off.

Image

Then the belt loops

Image


Image


Image

Then drill for the Chicago screws

Image

Then assemble

Image

Image

Then cut out the perimeter and polish the edges.
