Holster for my new Beretta 92A1

I would appreciate some suggestions for a holster to fit my new Beretta 92A1!

It doesn't fit the Kydex holster that I have for my 92G, the rail on the dust cover is too wide.

Any suggestions?

The military holsters are quite nice, and available from several sources.

Re: Holster for my new Beretta 92A1

What do you want it for? Concealed carry? Open carry? Competition?

Blackhawk and Safariland make some that you might like.

allaroundhunter, I just want a holster to carry when I am kicking around. I guess it would be "open" carry, per-se.

I will look on the Blackhawk and Safariland sites. Do you have a 92A1? If so, what holster do you use?

Thanks

Re: Holster for my new Beretta 92A1

I don't have a 92A1, but I do use Safariland holsters for a couple pistols and prefer them to Blackhawk. The ALS (automatic locking system) on the Safariland is very nice and instinctual to use, and I prefer it to Blackhawk's SERPA system. I have, however, also used a SERPA with my Glock 19 so I have used each at one point or another.

holsters; use(s).....

Please post what your intended uses are; range hunting concealment duty etc.
There are many holsters for the popular 92 series. Contact the firm first to ensure it will fit with the 1913 rail. Some holsters may not work. Galco Blade-tech Bianchi Intl El Paso Saddlery Blackhawk SERPA Safariland ALS & SFS Highnoon Holsters COM Holsters Alessi Don Hume Kirkpatrick Leather Ted Blocker Holsters Kramer Leather Tex Shoemaker Milt Sparks.
There are other smaller shops & custom holster makers out there. Wait times or orders may take months due to the 2013 gun blitz.

My input...

For a general purpose, multiple use rig, I'd look at the Bianchi M12 or UM92II line. These nylon holsters are based on the Bianchi mil spec M12. You can wear it cross draw , tanker style, shoulder rig, SAS or leg carry, strong side. You can add a flap or use a thumb break for extra security. They are robust easy to clean & protect the 92 series pistol.
The Bianchi models come in woodland camo black & OD or olive drab.
You can convert the holster for different belts too up to 2.25" width.

For open carry you might want to look at the Blackhawk SERPA the Blade tech Thumb-Drive or the popular Safailand SFS. These polymer holsters hold up well & secure the pistol. The material may mar the alloy finish.
The M12/92II won't.
See UScav.com Policehq.com Bianchi-intl.com for prices & sales.

ps: I didn't read all the posts & was on my android phone.

Thanks Clyde.

I have some good sources to investigate.

TFL is a great place!

No problem...

Sure,
As stated, the UM92II holster should meet your needs. It also has a cleaning rod in the gap in front of the holster.

The holster that Deepcreek linked to here: http://www.berettausa.com/products/p...olster-90-two/

Is the one I got with my dad's new 96A1. Nice holster.

wright leather works....

A holster shop I just learned about has a few great strong-side holsters.
The Wright Leather Works Predator comes in 4 leather shades & isn't super high priced.
The holster has a metal band good for re holstering. The Predator has a side or body shield too. That helps protect the rear sights too.

Id suggest a lined gun belt about 1.5" width. There are a few good belts from top brands.
5.11 Tactical, Blackhawk, Galco, Duluth Trading, Greg Kramer, Ken Null.

+1 on the ALS system holsters. I've got two and I'm looking to acquire several more. They're very secure, very intuitive, well-made holsters. I also have a couple of Serpas and I prefer the ALS over the Serpa design.
