I was wondering if I could get any thoughts and or opinions on two different holsters. The Comp Tech Victory Gear (Speed Beez tactical owb holster) and the Blade Tech Pro series Speed rig holster? For a S&W 625/627. I’m wanting to build a rig for shooting USPSA and for at my range at home. The reason I’m not going fora DAA is because my son will shoot this gun from time to time and he isn’t ready for a full out race holster. I currently have a 625JM with a 4” barrel and I plan on getting a 627 next year.
I just got finished with a DIY holster modification, and I thought I'd share since I've lurked a long time and just now potentially have something useful to share. I've always wished I could have a dropped/offset Safariland ALS holster with a tek-lok. There are some aftermarket hangers out there, but they are a bit pricey. Today I noticed that I had a spare tek-lok and a Safariland mid ride UBL from an old duty holster. I also had a brand new Safariland 7TS "concealment" ALS holster (The one that comes with the paddle and the close in belt attachment) that my wife got me as a gift a while back. Seeing all three in the same space got my wheels to turning. Before I knew it, I had drilled holes and attached the tek-lok to the UBL. It worked like a champ, and gave lots of extra functionality to the holster. So, why bother with a mod like this? 1. The UBL is super strong but is meant for Police duty belts that are 2" to 2 1/2" wide. This mod allows you to use a 1.5" or 1.75" EDC belt. This also allows attaching the holster to a CR Speed type competition belt as well if retention is desired, which is becoming popular in 3-Gun. 2. I can now choose between clipping the holster on with the tek-lok only, or running the belt through both the UBL and the tek-lok for extra stability. The clip on function is nice at the range for switching out a concealment holster with this holster since I wear a belt with a cobra buckle. 3. For owners of the US Grunt Gear war belts, you could do this mod to attach a Safarland holster to that belt without using a G-Code molle adapter. I've never owned one of those buy I've eyeballed them longingly on their website before. I put the holster on in both configurations with my EDC cobra belt and I was extremely happy with how stable it was during the draw, even with just the tek-lok holding it on. With the new tek-lok's retention tab I don't see it coming off unexpectedly. This could also be done to the Safariland low ride UBL, and I really think it could be made to work on the high ride UBL since the tek-lok has a lot of holes to work with.
