ShapeShift Walther PPQ M2 .40 S&W IWB Holster by Alien Gear Holsters



If you're after the most comfortable carry possible, the ShapeShift Walther PPQ M2 .40 IWB Holster is for you. If you like intelligent design details and better function than most other carry holsters, this is definitely the holster you want.

This Walther PPQ M2 .40 concealed carry holster delivers a more comfortable carry than many other holsters for this firearm. The holster shell is backed by a holster base that cushions the wearer with a backing layer of CoolVent neoprene, a perforated neoprene fabric that also wicks away moisture and lets the skin breathe.

The edges of the holster base are fully bound for greater comfort.

The base of your Walther PPQ M2 40 IWB also features a core of woven ballistic nylon and spring steel. This gives the holster a firm but flexible spine. You won't feel the gun through the fabric, and you can expect a long service life. You'll also notice the pistol feels supported while wearing it.

The ShapeShift shell is custom-molded for the PPQ M2 .40 S&W, so you get the fitment necessary for a secure carry. The durable polymer shell fully wraps the trigger guard, keeping it fully protected. Passive retention is fully adjustable via the Adjustable Retention Unit, without needing any tools whatsoever.

Indicate your choice of belt clip at purchase for the right fit. You can also adjust them for ride height and cant angle for the perfect carry position. This is also done toollessly with our new belt clip attachment design.

Your Walther PPQ M2 .40 IWB Holster also comes backed by Alien Gear Holsters' Iron-Clad Guarantee. Our comprehensive product guarantee covers this holster from the moment you receive it to the last second you have it. You get a 30 Day Test Drive trial period to start off with and our Forever Warranty for the lifetime of the holster.

Start your Test Drive today and shift into a better carry!

Awesome Holster Review by Robert
Quality

So far, I love my new Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster. It works great with my M&P Shield, and is about 50% lighter than my other holster for the same weapon. It's my ECD, so comfort is of great importance. The Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster is very comfortable, with zero metal to dig into my love handle LOL. I'm hoping to change out the guys of this to fit my Sig 365 I'm purchasing this week, and with just a few screws, I don't think that'll be an issue. (Posted on 2/14/2021)
Very impressive for the price.. Ya I think so Review by Juzplanekrazy

After messing around with it for a hour getting my gun to fit snug (Glock 43), the belt clips I liked, the tilt and height position I liked it felt really good. I wore it pretty much all day, In and out of my truck to the store, bending down and setting for a for a few hours in a chair.
I'm not a little guy so getting it just right took a little work but was way worth it.
I did do some add on packs that were a little confusing but after a call to support and another add on pack I got everything I think I'll ever use.
The wife likes the look of it and we'll be getting her one too.
I just hope they come out with one that will fit my Glock 17 MOS w/ red dot optics soon. (Posted on 2/5/2021)
Great everyday carry holster Review by Robert
Quality

I have used this holster pretty much every work day for the last two years. It's the most comfortable holster I have tried to date and keeps everything very concealed. After two years, I dropped my loaded holster putting it into my safe and broke a part. It was 100% my fault.

I chatted with customer support, provided them with pictures of the broken part, and they sent me a new piece 2 day shipping! That is the greatest customer service! I was so pleased that I purchased the appendix carry rig to try out. I'm interested to see if it's more comfortable and easier to draw from while sitting in a vehicle. I have full confidence in their product to trust them with my life. Thanks again. (Posted on 2/4/2021)

I recently purchased the SHAPESHIFTER 4.0 for my EDC . I am well pleased with this product (except just after my purchase you offered a FREE gun Mathew/Oder). Ugh!
But will definitely buy again and recommend to all my family and friends. Thanks AG an excellent product. (Posted on 2/2/2021)
Best Holsters I have ever used, wearing one right now! Review by Sheepdog

Been using Alien Gear holsters since before the "shape shift", and the 2.0/4.0 etc. models existed. I currently own 4 "shells", one old school IWB leather revolver specific model, 2 neoprene IWB types for the other three other gun specific shells, and the shape shift shell with the molle, backpack, and paddle attachments. Other than a few screws "backing out" of the old school IBW models (lock-tite works great, btw), I have had no issues with any of these model, and I carry everyday, FOR WELL OVER FIVE YEARS NOW! The adjustable draw tension, the comfort of carry, the carry gun flexibility, and now the mode of carry with the shape shift exceed my expectations. The active retention option with the shape shift (at no cost and easily removable), still provides lightning fast draws, (with minimal practice), yet held firm when a huge Marine friend of mine tried to remove my weapon from the holster, (with my knowledge as a test). Despite me being literally lifted off the ground by his attempt, (courtesy of a quality carry belt and high end duty pants securing the paddle attachment), the firearm remained safely in the holster, the paddle remained safely attached to my belt and pants, and the shell attachment point (which allows for mount interchangeability) remained undamaged and fully functional. The variable length, optional positive locking, 360 degree on demand cant option (as with nearly all of the shape shift mount options), molle attachment works great on the molle compatible mag shingle attached to my level 4 vest, and allows for pistol placement when/if I need to switch from paddle/OTW carry, simply by remounting my shell, (without tools and in seconds) from one mount option to the other. (Be mindful of the placement of Armor/backpack mount locations if you expect to simultaneously utilize a sling carried rifle, as the shape shift may present a sling entanglement issue, as it is more high profile and has deeper intrinsic "catch points/recesses", than some other less adaptable molle pistol rigs.) Due to an ordering mistake, which was entirely my fault, I can attest to the attentiveness, responsiveness, and professional nature of Alien Gear's staff. Presumably, that same quality of service, at Alien Gear, would exist if I ever encountered a product failure, WHICH I HAVE NOT! If these guys make a shell for your pistol, which chances are they do, don't think twice about buying from them. I trust my life, the lives of my family, and the lives of anyone else I may need to protect, with these holsters. You should as well. (Posted on 12/3/2020)
Holster may not be gun specific Review by Nickname

I liked the look of the holster, it has positive reviews and the price isn't bad. I ordered the shapeshift 4.0 for the Kimber Micro9. The ordering process was easy and it came relatively fast. When I opened up the package I was disappointed though, on the package was a sticker that said designed for Sig Sauer P938, P238. Looks like I got a new Sig holster that my Kimber will work with. I had to crank the retention down several turns to hold it tight but it still is not snug in the holster.
So, just know that if you order a new holster, it may be a generic fit. (Posted on 11/27/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

We do sincerely apologize for any confusion that label may have caused! Our R&D team found that the Kimber Micro 9, Kimber Micro, Sig P938, and Sig P238 were close enough dimensionally that they all fit the same mold. As such, this is the mold we use for all 4 firearms. If you experience any issues with the fitment of your holster please feel free to reach out our customer service team at 208-215-2046 or via our online chat service and we will be more than happy to assist you.

After receiving my 4.0 IWB holster I was a bit disappointed, after reading and view some videos I became satisfied, I must say it is the most comfortable holster I have ever own, truth be told, I replace my fence and gate with the holster on me and never was I uncomfortable, at times I forget that I had it on me, glock 17, not a small gun (Posted on 11/4/2020)

I purchased this holster and needed it replaced because it cracked. Alien Gear replaced with no questions asked. I asked if I could change the color of the leather part to black (I originally ordered the natural color) and without hesitation, they did so. I HIGHLY recommend Alien Gear to anyone.

Shapeshift 4.0 Review by Jerry
Quality

Purchased the Shapeshift 4.0 for my M&P 40 and Ruger LCPII. First off, the quality of the holster is amazing. Being able to adjust the tension of the shell is awesome. You can really fine tune the tension for your draw and how your pants fit around it. It did take a few days to get it right but now I dont have to mess around with it. Its super comfortable and after a few days I dont even notice it there. I carry at the 5:00 position due to my portly size.

I will add that I started to carry my M&P fullsize with a standard belt and it was no good. kept pulling down my pants on that side. However, it is fine with the LCPII and a standard belt. Fast foward a week and I have an actual carry belt that doesnt sag. HUGE difference it makes. Pants dont sag anymore with the fullsize.

I absolutley love this holster and with the right belt, EDC is no problem with a fullsize. (Posted on 10/2/2020)
