    Ok, I have spoken with KT Mech and they will do a holster but the closest mold they have is the springer full rail. Has anyone here had a holster made specific to the RIA? I measured the slide and it's a hair narrower than the reported width of the springer. I'd really like an ALS but safariland had no interest when I spoke to them. Have to go with kydex and friction retention.

    If its like most kydex holsters there is a little room for tensioning whether its a kydex taco or kydex on a backing media. Most use rubber rings or pieces of rubber hose cut down to adjust retention.

    Yeah, those bushings/orings/etc are always on the dust jacket side of the holster and I am looking for a light bearing model which will almost certainly obviate that feature. Even in a non light model it would alter the fit on the frame portion, not the slide portion where the variance is.

    Part of why I like ALS holsters so much. The lock indexes on the forward edge of the breech opening in the slide. No tension issues to mess with.
