No I am not wrong and no it doesn't look like the picture of the OWB snap loop on his website. A full picture of the holster would be useful but from what I can see in the photo you posted the loop is attached to the holster with a screw post and can swivel. Ray's OWB snap on holster doesn't have a detachable loop. The loop is actually a part of the front panel of the holster and goes over the top of the belt. How about posting a full photo of the holster that would certainly make things clearer.
I will post a photo in a few, but its definitely like the second pic sgb posted and all the pics on Lobo's web site. I ordered an OWB holster. Either way its been 5 days with no reply from Ray.
Do you have a holster in question? Have you seen one? I ask because its hard to tell from Rays pics how the loops are attached to the holster and having solid loops would be a plus but from looking at what I have and his pic I got what he shows for an OWB.
My holster pic, sure look the same to me except for the extreme curve molded into my holster.
Look how much curve is put into the holster. The front tab is almost 90 degrees to the holster body.
Well that is definitely an OWB design and it has his makers mark. It is not what he has posted on his site which is a different design. I am familiar with his design work from another site at leatherworker.net.
I just noticed he hasn't been on leatherworker.net for a few days. Which is unusual. He may be on vacation. Ray is a decent guy and I'm sure will make it righ.t
The only reason I could think of for an angle like that is wearing it behind the hip. But it looks like too much for that even. I would assume that is fixable. I would think it would require wetting the holster, or conditioning it, right at the bend and taking out some of the angle. You would have to be careful not to loosed the mold of the gun though. You could permanently attache the straps by sewing them on. A drill, stiff needles, and some leather thread would get you there. But having to fix something that is new drives me nuts. I understand forming something to your needs when it's made generically for everyone. This seems to be a step beyond that though. Hopefully he'll work it out for you.
You might want to take chiefjasons suggestion and try wearing the holster in the 4 to 5 O'clock position you might find it works a lot better than trying to wear it on the point of your hip at 2:30 to 3:00.
I agree with Denster this is a different at least variation of the design Lobo has on the site, the loop attachment is different. If you look at the pictures on the site the loop is part of the top layer of the holster, where the your rig it's attached with a screw. May be that Ray changed the design some since the pictures were taken for the site, but he's correct that it's different.

Op, did you put the T nuts and screw in or did it come factory like that? Just interested for my own sake really. That is what I was considering using.
FWIW, anything that does not solidly attach the strap to the holster will allow twist. Whether that is snap or screw. A screw might be tightened up to lessen it, but it's still only attached at one point. Sewing, attaching at multiple points, would resolve the twist. I think I'm talking myself into sewing my straps on.
