    crossbreed super tuck help

    Hello gentelman, I was wondering if any of you have modified your crossbreed holsters to the what I now belive is called the combat carry option.
    Today was the first day I had this holster, and have been wearing it for about 8 hours.
    Even though I wore it with a pair of levis that would be tight if I lost 5 pounds it is not that bad. The one thing I did notice is on the draw my fingers are full of alot of leather.
    I know this can be fixed with a cut here cut there I just didn't want to slice up my new holster on the first day.
    Do any of you have any pics of where the correct cut should be.
    I know this differs from gun to gun(H&K USPc) but i don't want to slice it up to much.
    any opinions

    Call Mark at Crossbreed and talk to him about it. He is always very helpful.

    I to have the same problem with my Brand new super crossbreed. I plan on the same cuts that EV239 did. I think its a simple mod. And feel there is no need to send it back to Crossbreed.
    I really like this holster. very comfortable. However I will wait my 2 week test drive out, before making any mods.
    EV239 did a wonderful job on his evaluation of this holster. Even though Ive only had the holster a few days. I agree with what was said.

    Don't have one, never seen one. But if you need to make cuts on a brand new holster, there's something wrong with the design!

    I have one, and just trimmed mine up a couple days ago after reading another thread. I think I trimmed a little more off mine, but I have a M&P compact. I also added a hole for the mag release button to prevent accidental mag drops while in the holster. (I have a bony hip that pokes right on the release.)

    Had I not read the post about it earlier, I probably wouldn't have done the combat trim. Now that I have, I would suggest everyone do it. It makes a world of difference.

    I wouldn't call it a design flaw as much as a trade-off. I'm guessing Mark uses the same backer piece for all guns, which speeds production to the point that he can have a comfortable, quality holster on your doorstep inside TWO WEEKS. Hand trimming that last 1/4" to 1/8" of leather to fit every gun obviously would slow things down, so it's simply offered as an option.

    Did you make the cut using regular scissors or some special tool? I have been wanting to make similiar cut.

    Nah, nothing wrong with the design. Just the body type, gun & holster combo. Mark at CB offers the combat cut - I prefer the extra leather around the grip for comfort - I have not had this issue.

    Sorry for the late reply, I just used a regular set of scissors. My cut doesn't match the rest exactly since I think Mark must do something to bevel the edge a certain way, but you can hardly tell. Normal scissors should work just fine for you.

    I had the same problem with mine, in addition to they do not make one for my model, so he sent one that he makes for a different gun that works well (NOT!).

    I have since ordered some kydex sheets, and made my own (Pics in the EDC porn thread). I thinned out the area (not a hole) for the slide release, then used a punch to smooth and flatten out the divot.

    Same thing as the grip. I drew a line around the sight-trigger-beavertail while holstered, then unholstered, and drew a curved line from the top of the kydex to the end of the beavertail line. I just used a utility knife (razor blade type) to cut it.

    I've cut the "combat grip" into mine, punched a hole in the leather to prevent my magazine from being released and I've switched the cheap bent clips for Comp-tac clips. I've also put spacer behind the clips to facilitate tucking (which he now offers). The holster STILL squeeks after over a year and I don't like the half coverage of the gun.

    I believe he makes a decent basic holster but they are far from a quality custom holster. I think his quality doesn't justify his prices now. Whith what you pay for a crossbreed you can get the cheaper MTAC from COMP-Tac.

    I use the super tuck for EDC. I understand what you are saying, but the leather wasn't an issue for me. The factory standard works great!

    Just to clarify this a bit, the MTAC (which is Comp-Tacs Fancy version of our SuperTuck) is 80.00 plus S&H

    The Spartan, which is almost an exact knock-off of our SuperTuck is indeed cheaper at $60.00. So yes, the Spartan is a few dollars cheaper, and comes without a lifetime warranty (you do get one year) and there is a potential 15%-20% restocking fee if you do return it.

    Comp-Tac certainly makes good holsters and they are worth thier price, and so are ours.

    Please do try to compare apples to apples.

    I just saw Comp-tac's Spartan today for the first time and it does indeed look almost exactly like a SuperTuck. I'm happy with my Crossbreed and think they have a great product!
