FAN-TASTIC! This is an awesome holster! I've purchased several of these now, and they are as good as any Galco holster I own. Bought one for a 3" Ruger SP-101, and to my surprise, it fits the 3" Colt King Cobra like a glove. A perfect fit, perfect length, excellent quality leather, and a tremendous value for the money. To be clear, I am a comat veteran of Vietnam and a VERY proud American, and I'm no shill, but I will gladly say that this foreign manufacturer is producing holsters as fine as anything made in America - and that includes Galco.
Over as many years, I have been a repeat MASC customer, due in very large part to its excellent leather holsters. Whether a belt or paddle holster, every MASC holster I've purchased has exhibited the highest level of attention to detail, craftsmanship, and quality and has fit perfectly straight out of the package. However, the recent purchase of a paddle holster for my Glock 42 has been somewhat disappointing. The quality of the holster is beyond argument, but the fit has been problematic. Despite "kneading" the leather and "working it" according MASC's instructions, the fit is excessively tight and pulls on the Glock slide - even after keeping my Glock in the holster for two weeks. I don't know if the Glock 42 made in Smyrna, Georgia (US) and the Glock 42 made in Austria are different in size, which might account for the very tight fit.
Bought this for my Chiappa Rhino 2” that I keep as a “pest control” gun loaded with .357 Shotshells in my go bag & throw it on when hitting any trails as primary & back up pistols are not the best for snakes & shotshells out of a pistol isn’t as good defense but are great for creepy critters. Very impressed with quality. Better retention & angle adjustments(5 setting) then anyone else I’ve used with leather holsters...
note to makers: any Vance in seeing a Chiappa Rhino 200DS paddle holster with a retention strap in the future?
I ordered and received the holster in just three days which, in itself, is amazing. The leather and construction are excellent. As expected the fit is a bit tight but that's to be expected in a new leather holster. The ride is fairly high and the paddle is very comfortable. The anle adjustments allow for a vertical carry, a butt forward carry and even a butt forward cross-draw carry.This holster will replace a kydex Safariland paddle holster as I found the curve of their paddle uncomfortable while hiking and the paddle retention was overkill...I had to remove my pants to remove the holster. Only time will tell if this is the perfect holster for me but I have a strong feeling it will be. For reference the pistol is a Walther PPS M2.
Wow... what an experience - I ordered this holster for my S&W 642 revolver Tuesday morning - March 27th. Today Thursday March 29th Fed Ex just delivered my holster to my front door. Who ever heard of such service - Fits like a glove - Excellent retention but not too tight. Quality of the holster is excellent - looks like leather - smells like leather cause it is leather !!! Great job guys.... Thank You very much ... Will continue to buy.
