Sorry - spelled Brommeland wrong.
Some time ago I purchased a Max Con V from Gary for my Glock27.
Shortly after receiving it I called Coal Creek to purchase a Max Con V
for my Glock 23 and found out something I did not know.
They did not have a model 23 in stock, but assured me that the model for the Glock22 would fit the Glock 22,23,&27 so I purchased it and they are right & it was delivered in 4 days.
My Glock23 & 27 fit into the model 22 holster just fine. I compared the Max Con 22 with the Max Con 27 and side by side they are the same exact out side dimensions. The pocket for the gun is naturally some what longer on the model 22 then the 23 & 27. I now have one Holster for three Glocks.
I carry the G23 every day and this holster conceals the 23 under a T- shirt or polo. I carry at about 2:30/3PM and it not only conceals great but is also super comfortable. I can not say enough for Gary's exceptional holsters, he does show his concern for my life by providing a great product at a reasonable price.
I'm a Brommeland fan also.
Nice! He makes great holsters! I'm jealous!
Some would suggest to use only the gun the holster is intended for, in order to maximize it's life. Maybe some of the holster makers can elaborate. Personally, I'll use a holster for different gun as long as the barrel length difference is less than 1/2" (don't know why?), assuming the same other dimensions such as in G26 vs G19. Anyways...Glad you found a holster that's comfortable.
This theory holds true for several other gun models. 1911s, for example. a 5 inch will accommodate any smaller size. The only potential problem, is the leather at the muzzle end getting soft and supple. The retention isn't there, so it's not a real hazard.
I just bought a Def Con for my 1911 from Coal Creek . It is the best holster that I have so far . I am waiting for a eagle defender from KD , I will let you know in about 5 more weeks how I like it . I have bought a couple holsters from UBG , that I don't like as much as my Bianchi or Galco .
Hi redrick. I assume the Def-Con was for a 5 inch gun. I have been trying to get one for a 4 inch, but to no avail. I have pretty much given up.

I also admit that when you get to that level of skill and perfection, "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder."
JerryM it was for a 4 to 4 1/2" barrel .
Thanks, and glad you got it. That is GREAT.

Let us know what you think of the Eagle.
