    Alien Gear an Sig 226

    Ok I let a friend borrow my alien gear for the Glock 36. So I got it home and wow the Sig 226 fit little tight on trigger guard but moves right in. It rides great weight surprisingly not bad.
    How does it hide.

    I really like the Alien holster I just got. Ordered it on a Monday. Eight business days later it was delivered via US Postal Service (mailman). Like you I have it set for the least amount of pistol showing above the waistband. I have worn it almost every day since I got it and find it to be comfortable. Now I'm looking for a mag holder ...

    I loved it with my Glock 36 and am amazed
    that this Sig 226 doesn't feel any bigger.

    Had been thinking about getting one for the 226 that I carry OWB from time-to-time in a Raven clone. I thought that the heavier grade Kydex might be nice in a full-size pistol. But I thought they did full-coverage. The one/only thing I don't like about my Tommy Theis holster is that the exposed muzzle marks the inside of lighter-colored shorts/trousers.

    I ordered an Alien for my PPQ and had to modify it after I got it, in order to make it fit my gun. On some models, they curl the kydex at the end so it performs somewhat like a closed end holster. Apparently the mold they used had a larger trigger guard, so their model doesn't drop into the holster as far. Once I Dremeled off the curl at the end, it became functional to me. They offered to take it back for credit, but they said I had to ship it on my dime, so I'll just keep it and consider it another lesson learned.

    I think I'll go for either another SHTF ACE-1, or another Old Faithful.

    I have an AlienGear for my springfield xdsc. I didn't go wrong with it. Absolutely the most comfortable concealable holster I have ever had.

    OP, is the AlienGear holster a belly iwb or hip iwb holster, or does it work for either? I'm now looking at these, and the Old Faithful holsters for $39.97 which have a 30 day money back guarantee + you get to keep the holster. I really like the fact that AlienGear will sell you a second shell so you can switch out guns without buying a whole new holster.
    "Quick-Assemble-Kit" - Inside the Waistband - Hybrid Belly - Gun Holster Kit - Old Faithful Holsters


    I just looked at AlienGear's warranty and they offer a 30 day as well as trade in your shell if you purchase a different gun.
