If you brought the material up a bit higher, over the slide stop's right side, would it improve retention with very little bulk added, or would that get too far away from your minimal design? At any rate, it looks great!
    Thanks for the compliment!!!

    You are right the the front could be shrunk. All you need is enough room to put the Chicago screw and still have enough martial to keep it from breaking...

    As for retention there is no problem here. You have as much or as little as you want..Now if one wants to raise the front over the slide stop you will get a LOT of retention!!!!That little bump can lock the pistol right in.. If I were to go up that high I would make a channel or grove for it to slide out smoothly.. That still would not add to the retention tho..

    Again thanks..

    I do use the pencil trick on normal benders.Maybe you can see it in this,,


    Butt on this type there is a lot of room in there. A lot of times I add a rubber washer in between the 2 layers of Kydex to help with retention and that just adds even more room...

    Looks like that would mount right nicely to your washer or dryer.
    Great looking work, wish I had the patience to try it.

    Looks very nice. How is retention? Looks like it someone grabbed the grip while it's in the holster it's all theirs.

    You can set the retention from it's locked in and you have to unscrew the Chicago screws to remove it. Or so lose it will fall out...
