I have one of his earlier holsters for my G32.
You wouldn't happen to have a Comp-Tac 2-o'clock to compare that with, would you?
I just got an email from Tom, after asking how he goes about making these things and if he would consider doing a P226. Everything on this holster is incredibly symmetrical and smooth, retention lines are extremely crisp. It’s obviously not made by hand, and the initial setup couldn’t have been cheap.
Here’s his response, and is part of the attention to detail that I just haven’t found in many makers, especially those that are not high volume (and then the high volume ones tend to be crap anyway). Pricing info redacted.
Thanks, appreciate the feedback. The gun is modeled and then defeatured to smooth things out and/or add compatibility. In your case it should fit all LCR's. We machine in plastic, test, and then aluminum. We vacuum form over the molds, drill holes, rough trim, then route out. The initial set up is a little costly. Pricing is to be kept low key, but it's easy to find... A mold like the LCR with the features and trim stuff would run about $XXXX-XXXX by the time all costs are factored in. Not terrible though because once they're done my work time to produce the same holster is lower and that's where I need to be. My biggest pet peeve is some of the less than stellar stuff that varies enough that an instructor can get a product and love it but then a person they referred to the maker gets a product that's not the same. Going this way eliminates that part but also ensures that so many other little details are consistent too.
The 226 is a goal but I'd need to get 20-30 holsters committed to do them how I want.
