    Supertuck Combat Cut

    Thanks for the great response to the Supertuck Break in Period post. I made some of the adjustments and chose different pants and I already see/feel a difference.

    New question:
    You can order the Supertuck with the "combat cut" which removes the leather around the grip of your gun. I find it actually difficult to get a good grip on the gun (the Glock 27 is only 2 finger hold anyway) with that leather there (I do NOT have the combat cut).

    I know the guys at Crossbread will fix this (or frankly I could cut it myself), but they also say you can give up some comfort losing that leather.

    Anyone have thoughts on this?

    I'd go with the cut, I can't see the comfort level being that much different.
    I have several MTACS, similiar to the supertuck, and it's not bad at all with the cut.

    I have found my supertuck to be much more comfortable with the combat cut ( i did it myself ) just my 2 cents.

    I can't imagine it is to hard to cut leather, but did you use a knife or scissors? Does leather fray or anything else I should worry about?

    Go with the cut. I got mine w/o cut for a 1911 frame, didn't like it, did the cut myself. Still didn't like it, so I cut some more. I like to draw with my thumb already on the thumb safety.
    No problem with comfort, at least for me.

    It didn't hurt the comfort on mine. I wear mine all day and forget it's on. I love the fact you can alter it to fit your body. I cut it with a utility knife and then shaped it with my dremel.

    Where exactly is the combat cut taking material off? I don't want something that will leave the thumb safety and hammer gouging at me. Or does it just give a lower cut behind the handle for better access? There's no pics on the Crossbreed site to show the 2 side by side. I just ordered one today, and I'm wondering if I shoud call in and add the combat cut.

    It takes off material around the grip area. The slide area still has material around it.

    I've got the un-combat cut version. I prefer the additional comfort and additonal coverage of the gun. I can't see the combat cut being that much of a tactical advatage. Even if the leather is cut away, you likely have a cotton shirt or skin. For me the leather provides a better sliding surface for draw.

    With my love handles I need the extra material. Safety and slide release can make things a little raw after a day of packin.

    I have one with and one without the combat cut. They are for different guns, but I really cant tell the difference in comfort. More of the gun is touching my skin, with the combat cut, but it fits the same.
