DIY Video - How to Make an Adjustable Retention Holster for the Glock 19 w/ a RCS Overhook Strut Attachment


In this video, Holstersmith.com shows how to make a holster for the Glock 19 handgun. The 1-piece holster in this demonstration video was made with a Black Raptor HOLSTEX® thermoform sheet and a RCS Overhook Strut attachment. The video covers the complete holster build from molding to final sanding and polishing. The RCS Overhook Strut allows for the holster to be carried inside-the-waistband and makes a great weekend project.
