    Arrow Improved IWB pics

    I made a new IWB prototype using the input from various people on here and elsewhere.

    The problems with the old version was that it rode too high, so I adjusted the ride and enlarged the sweat shield and added a tension screw.

    It is on the website now.

    I also have a crossdraw holster in the works.

    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.

    Nice looking leather. I like the handcuff pouch too.

    Its comfortable I wore it all day yesterday, and fell asleep forgot it was there, I normally hate IWB holsters for my SIG.

    That looks like it would be very comfortable, how do you like the changes?

    It is real comfortable, I used hate IWB carry it was absolutely miserable, but have been using this one for 2 days (8 hours + daily) and it has really changed my mind on the subject.

    I personally field test all designs before selling a single one of them, so i have all kinds of prototypes that I have made that didn't make the cut.

    I don't know where you carry, but I like around 3:30 and looking at this holster closely, to me I could use a little more cant around 15 deg. or so, that will put the grip a little more parallel with yor body. Less grip sticking to the rear and less to catch on it. When you draw the pistol it's a more forward motion than just up.

    I carry around 3:30 as well.

    The good thing about being the maker is that subtle changes can be worked into the design, more cant can be achieved by raising the front loop attachment a little bit.

    There is always room for improvement, and suggestions are very welcome.

    I do like the look of it. It should do very well for you. I use IWB more than others, then a shoulder rig before OWB. Not that I have anything against a OWB but in Ar. it's concealed only, and for me a IWB is easier to conceal.

    Well I loathe IWB - I am strictly OWB - but have to say that looks very good and comfortable.

    I was anti IWB for years, up until Tuesday.

    I wore this holster under a tshirt today with that huge 226 and it disappeared and was comfortable while driving, sitting, and napping

    Wear a tee shirt against your body, and a good designed IWB can be very comfortable. Mine get the sleep test all the time. lol
