Disappointed Hellcat OSP 507k Doesn't Fit Review by Ryan

I have been waiting forever for the Hellcat or Hellcat OSP Shapeshift Shells to become available....When it finally did I ordered the Hellcat OSP option.....Take it out of the bag, and it doesn't fit the hellcat with a Holosun 507k on it. Very disappointed in that they make such great products and did allow room for all sights.. (Posted on 11/10/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Ryan! Thank you so much for your feedback and we do hope to make this right for you! That attachment unfortunately is not one we offer but we do have a gun wishlist we can get that added to! Please reach out with any additional questions or concerns.

Works with Springfield XD-45 in some configurations Review by Nick
Quality

I bought this shell to expand my options with the shape shift core carry pack, hoping it would work with my Springfield XD-45. This pistol is a hair wider than the 9mm, so in holster configurations where you use both halves of the shell, it's a bit too tight to fit properly.

However, if you have your holster set up where you're only using half the shell - pretty much any of the IWB setups - this shell works just fine. That's a chunky gun to carry IWB, but YMMV.

Overall happy with the shell design, works well enough for my purposes even if not how this was intended to be used. (Posted on 11/8/2020)

Doesn't Compensate For Standard Rails on Beretta Review by Ger
Quality

I can tell the quality of the equipment is well thought out, and would be an amazing holster. I do however wish there were more options for the ShapeShift holsters, as they are an amazing product, and there are a lot of unique guns for carry out there.

I had purchased this for my M9A3. I had thought that "Beretta 92 - Full Size (also fits M9)" under the Beretta option also kept in mind the standard rails that often came with most M9's. It doesn't unfortunately. Also I didn't realize the barrel is also just that wee bit longer than standard M9 barrels, so it wouldn't fit correctly even if they did compensate the rails, that under sight is on me however.

Like a glove Review by Terence

I love the way this thing hugs the gun, and creates an exo-skeleton so you know it's secure with no excess material. The Shapeshift system is genius; I love the modularity of the locking system and how easy it is to adjust retention. Can't wait for it to be available for more models.

I will note that I got one for my Ruger SR1911 with Truglo sights. Unfortunately, the shell wasn't designed for these sights, so the gun wouldn't seat properly and "lock" in. However, all it took was a little modification with a sharp knife (no dremel necessary!) and it fits perfectly. (Posted on 9/16/2020)

After a few weeks of wearing the Alien Gear I'm proud to say its comfortable and easy to conceal.
I have shells for 4 now. I love how versatile they are.
Easy to break down and set up a new holster.
Highly recommend it. (Posted on 9/8/2020)
Great product with great protection & trigger guard for handguns Review by Cecil
Quality

This was part of my first order from Aliengear Holsters and the shapeshift shell is truly dynamic and a must have for handgun owners. It protects the handgun barrel assembly combined with the thumb press release from the shell it prevents the gun from being removed from the shell or accidentally falling from the shell. The trigger guard completely covers the trigger and prevents firing your gun until you pull it from the shell when needed. This is the best design I have ever see or used. (Posted on 7/30/2020)
Glock 42 4.0 Shell Review by John

Holster a total FAILURE. Gun does not fit into the full shell at all. Additionally, the Retention Adjustment another TOTAL FAILURE as it will not adjust, period (JAMMED)..

I have many Alien Gear holsters from 3.0 to 3.5 and including the 4.0. Quality Control appears to be hampering this product line. These are quality holster with expansion capabilities. All my Shapeshift holster shells are Great, WHAT HAPPENED HERE? (Posted on 7/3/2020)

I bought this for a VP9, the new 2020 version. I have a red dot optic installed and unfortunately it doesn't fit, the optic gets in the way. I have the ShapeShift for several other guns and love the concept, unfortunately it won't work in this case. (Posted on 6/9/2020)
