Handsome firearm !!!
Yes it is a DeSantis Slim Tuk made for the Shield 45. It is tuckable, ambidextrous, and you can vary the tilt. The Shield 45 carrys very nice in it. I carry AIWB.Congrats on the new pistol. The Shield in 45 has been tempting me since my LGS called me and said they had some in back in July.
The holster in your picture looks interesting. Is it a DeSantis? Looks like the Shield would carry well in that.
I installed the sear and the flat trigger but that resulted in a pull lighter than I care for in a carry gun- 4 lbs. My 45 had a lighter factory pull than any of the Shield 9s I've worked with. The mechanical advantage of the flat face trigger itself reduces the pull weight by 14-17 ounces in my experience. I ended up just polishing the factory trigger bar, sear and striker block and installing the flat face trigger. This gives me a nice clean 5lb-2oz trigger.Holmes, did you put the 9/40 sear in along with the flat trigger on the 45? if you did, is there significant improvement? I am not
a gunsmith so do you think it would make more sense to wait until the entire 45 kit is ready or go ahead and install the 9/40 sear
with the flat trigger? thanks in advance for any advice
....... also when I mentioned in previous post about 45 fitting most 9/40
holsters I was referring to leather holsters..... don't have any kydex here.
...... on the MagGuts issue I think they will have a chance to make it work by eliminating the large follower as they did in other
kits, I hope so, but like I said, I am not a gunsmith so just guessing.
