    I just ordered some to experiment on the elusive Kydex AK Mag Pouch. QK's post was just what I needed!

    Thank you, QK! I'm starting a Kydex project in the next week or two, and this tutorial really helped me understand its properties and capabilities.

    If anyone needs any pointers, just PM me. I have been making holsters and mag pouches out of kydex for about a year now. Be glad to help out.

    Hey Rocky, How about a tutorial on Kydex holster making? I have read many on making knife sheaths, but haven't found any regarding holsters.

    They have kydex and some presses (the foam pads make the kydex form nicely to the gun/knife (if you look at it, its really easy to copy with wood and some high density foam). Its under the Sheath Making section.

    Maybe. I am out of kydex to build anything new, and probably out of the holster building due to lack of time/ interest in product.

    Here is a link that I found.

    Can you use the actual pistol to mold on? I don't see why it would hurt it.
