Blade Tech Issues with a SP-01-Need suggestion for new holster


Malarkey

Recommended Posts

So i ordered a blade-tech DOH holster for my sp-01. It came in today and the very first thing that happened shocked me. I put the gun into the holster, and the magazine released. I clicked it back in. Tried a draw, on the draw....the magazine released. So I am standing there think wt%$ is going on. I took it off my belt and further examined it, only to find that the inner kydex wall hangs over the mag release just enough to put pressure on it. Very disappointing. Its getting shipped back to amazon in the morning to say the least.

Now i love blade tech products. I have been running their revolution style holster in IDPA with my G34 but this seems uncharacteristic.

So i am back in the market for a production holster for my SP-01, does anyone have any good recommendations?

Maybe you got something bad or bent. Most folks around here with CZ SP01/SP01 Shadow/Accu-Shadow are running that blade tech holster, often with the BOSS holster hanger. Both my holsters and a wide variety of CZ's in there that hasn't happened to me, or I believe to anyone I've shot with.

If you can hang on to it for a day or two, perhaps you should take to your next match (Sunday?) and compare to someone else's blade-tech to see if your's is somehow bent funny compared to another persons/ If their gun mag ejects in your holster, or if your gun mag ejects in theirs, then at least you'll better know where the problem is, my thought anyway.

Malarkey,

You can use a heat gun or hair dryer and heat up the spot, and expand the portion, that's depressing the mag release button. I've used this process for kydex holsters in the past to make them fit better.

Just my .02 cents worth.

amazon must have sent you the wrong holster! The matches I go to there must be at least 10-15 guys using that holster. send it back and get the boss hanger & holster from http://www.benstoegerproshop.com/BSPS-BOSS-Dropped-Offset-DOH-Holster-p/bsps-holster.htm

I think you got the wrong holster too. I've got the Ghost, DAA and Blade Tech, none of the holsters touch the mag release.

Ben does not have them in stock, as of 3/4/15, but they are on order.

That is the one i ordered, and that is what it says on the package. I am debating exchanging it for a new one or just sending it back and going with something else.

I'm using the DAA on my USPSA Belt, the Ghost is my backup and the Boss Hanger is on my IDPA Belt.

I've got a New Ghost rig for the SP-01 if you want it.

You can see in the picture that the mag release is above the trim line of the holster.

Yeah i saw that. I am going to exchange it for a different one and give it another chance. If the next one is the same i will just trim it or something.

I would just do a little trimming. Had to do this last night while doing dry fire with a new Comp-Tac International for my M&P. My extended mag button was getting tripped from time to time on insertion, so I fixed it with a pocket knife.

That's the next step! Hopefully the replacement that comes in will be fitted a little better and i don't have to proceed to that.

So the replacement holster came in the other day. Had the same issue. Took a heat gun to the trouble part and had it fixed in 30 seconds. Works like a charm now.

Glad to see you got it fixed.

I ordred my SP-01 holster from Amazon. It felt like a big bucket that my gun could wiggle in instead of a fitted holster. Used it until it broke down the side. Blade Tech replaced it for me, and when I got the holster from them, I knew that I had never had the correct holster for my gun. It looked and fit completely different than the previous holster. Lesson learned, don't buy holsters from Amazon.

Just got my CZC Accu Shadow and the bushing and extra barrel length would not allow it to fit in a Blade-Tech Black Ice holster for the standard CZ 75 SP01.

Finally got to use this creme brulee blow torch (another useless wedding gift registry item) to heat the kydex and adapt it to the extra muzzle treatment:

The holster did have the proper relief cut for the mag release - ordered it direct from Blade-Tech

Congratulations on your new CZC Accu-Shadow, those are VERY cool!

The bushing on the 'regular' accushadow fits ok, its your extended Aussie barrel that is causing the issue. Such a nice "problem" to have :-)
