Disappointing fit & material Review by Simon
Quality

Value
I already had three Alien Gear holsters. Two for a Sig P224 SAS. I wanted to try the IWB holster for my Sig P365. So I ordered just the shell. I already have a bunch of the screws and synthetic bushings/spacers. So I swapped in the new P365 shell. Too loose. I was down to the thinnest spacers tightened all the way down. It's not going to work. The P365 just rattles loose. It appears the problem is the leather back is already molded to conform to the P224 which is much thicker. The nut body sticks up through the leather maybe an eighth in, so no matter how tight the screws are, it's going to be way too loose for the narrower P365.. I am also not sure I like the new injection molded plastic shell. The older Kydex shells I have are way sturdier. The new stuff feels flimsy. I'm going to shop around some for a different brand that is still Kydex and fits better. (Posted on 2/27/2021)

I wish to thank you for the quality product. I purchased your shoulder holster barely used off ebay, which had a different shell included. One or two emails to Aliengear helpes me determine what was needed for my XD9 and had it delivered in no time. Great fit with adjustability and quality. Well done and look forward to future products (Posted on 2/4/2021)
S&W MP Perf Center 1.0 9L 5" Review by Bubblehead

I recently purchased this pistol and wanted a shell for it to swap out with my FNX-9, LH. I contacted the company, they stated they have shells for the MP 2.0 5 inch.

I ordered this shell to try it, it went on my paddle no problem. After some adjustments on tension my 9L fits like a glove. Great job! (Posted on 1/2/2021)
Love it but I wish it would stop cracking after 6 months Review by RenoHuskerDu

I'm on my fourth one now, they keep cracking. Every Alien Gear sends me another, no problem. They told me the first time "wow, send it back so we can make it stronger" but so far there seems to be no improvement. I'm a big guy, it's a big gun, I carry all day, and the shell cracks in the same spot every time. (Posted on 10/27/2020)

We would love to get to bottom of this issue with you! Thank you for the feedback and we do look forward to hearing from you!

Lots of play Review by Treavor
Quality

I own the Ruger Security 9 Cloak Belt Holster and I had ordered this shell for my new Springfield 911 Alpha. The Security 9 works great. It holds snug and there is no play at all. My Security 9 draws and holsters amazing. The shell for the Springfield 911 does not fit as well. There is lots of play side to side. I have tried several different combos with the spacers and found one that works ok, but to keep it from moving side to side, I have to tighten the shell down so much that the slide pulls back when holstering the firearm. Not as secure as it should be. Not sure if this is normal or a defect in the shell. It makes me leary to carry my 911 in it. (Posted on 10/1/2020)
Holster shell had to be trimmed for red dot sight Review by mike

When I ordered the replacement shell for my canik TP9 Elite SC there was not an option for weapons with red dot sights. I took a chance and sure enough the weapon would not go all the way into the holster. I used a dermal tool and modified the holster. 30 minutes work and it now fits perfectly. I have pics of modified holster if you are interested . (Posted on 9/28/2020)
Great Customer service Review by Chuck
Quality

I ordered this holster soon after it became available. I soon discovered that it was the incorrect model and the model that I needed was not yet available. After a quick chat with Angie in CS. She refunded the full amount and apologized for the oversight.
A couple of weeks later I received a call from Angie explaining that they were now offering the holster for the model of pistol I needed. Not only did she take not of what I needed and follow up when available, They shipped me the new shell at no cost to me. Absolutely incredible customer service! I will most defiantly recommend AGH to anyone in need of a quality holster. (Posted on 9/9/2020)
G3C shell is modified G2C shell Review by Rob
Quality
Price
Value
First off I will say it is nicely crafted and attaches to the cloak system perfectly, the price was fair, and it shipped oddly fast,

My issue is what I received was not a G3C shell but rather a reheated and modified G2C shell made to fit the G3C. Which probably explains why it shipped so quickly. You can see the "G2C" impression on the inside of the shell and the fit it not as good as it should be. It "works" but it would work a whole lot better if they just used the G3C they reviewed to make the actual shell.

Again, it "works" okay. The retention is usable but since its not as clean a fit as it should be I couldn't get a retention set to my liking without something feeling like it was dragging on the shell- most likely the front sight. The front sight was REAL close to the shell when the firearm holstered. It needs more clearance. Pretty sure a replacement front sight would be even worse.

Since my life will be depending on this as part of my carry system, I will be looking for a replacement holster ASAP. I would suggest G3C owners to look else where for a holster until AGH uses an actual G3C to make the shells. (Posted on 7/19/2020)
