    Limited OWB holster options for my S&W 908-where did you get yours?

    I really like the Don Hume H721O.T. but they are out of stock and won't have any for 5 months they said. I contacted UBG and he says he can make a pancake for me. Other than that I can't find a holster. I have contacted several makers and most say they can make one for 3913 but it will be a little large in the muzzle area. If you have a 908, where did you get your holster and how is the fit? I am looking to spend a little to get a great fitting great quality holster. Thanks.

    (I not against having UBG make one, just looking for options)

    I was under the impression that the 3913 and the 908 were exactly the same frame. They just had a few parts swapped. When I was carrying a 908 I carried it in a IWB for a 3919 and it fit perfect.

    No problem for me making a holster for a Smith 908. I am a member and sponsor over at the S&W Forum.

    I will definitely take a close look. Can anyone confirm whether or not the 908 is the same holster as the 3913? I also thought they were the same frame with different sites and recoil spring guide. But I did have one very reputable maker mention the fit would be slightly different.

    I can confirm that my 908 fit perfectly in a 3913 holster. Take it for what you will.

    Yes you are correct, the 908 is as close as you can get to the 3913. We find no fit difference and have had no problems. With that said our designs and tolerances are near perfect. We make 35 holsters that gun. There should be no problems anywhere getting a holster.

    This is a nice one. Slide Guard

    Thanks for the responses Rollo and High Noon. I was looking for confirmation that they are the same (close enough if not exactly) as the 3913 is much more common and easy to find. Thank you.

    Thank You QK. We use a really heavy grain leather. Many customers have called to say what a bad picture it is because it looks out out focus and does the final product look like that. We then have to explain about the leather and grain pattern. A better shot here.

    Hey Alex, just received your (High Noon) lined, slide guard, along with your ITW Hidden Alley Low-ride for my LC9. I paid the extra $50 to get the slide guard within 7-10 days. I had previously ordered a bare asset and a backskin prior and have been using them for almost a year. I ordered the slide guard and hidden alley on April 19th and received them on April 25th (6 days!). They are great and work well! Very nice quality and though I was very hesitant and, at times, regretful for spending the extra change when I could have received another good holster, but your quickness, eased the pain and it was worth the extra $50! Thank you!
