    For tactical warbelt type holsters, it doesn’t get any better. I’ve run everything under the sun and nothing else comes close.

  2. Todd

    I just received my product and it’s quality initially would be the same as my bravo concealment holster. My only criticisms initially are two: 1 the 1911 holster cannot be holstered unless the safety is on. At least with extended safety, I’m probably going to replace it with a smaller one, but I still don’t think it will holster with a standard safety. 2 the qls forks are mounted high on the holster, so It rides a little low.

    Second is just preference, but I would say manual safty holsters should be able to be holstered with the safety off. I might be over thinking it, but I can imagine a set of circumstances where I want to holster my 1911 with an empty chamber/mag and not have to rack the slide to holster.

      Thanks again for your purchase. Cut your sweat guard down past the safety and sand with 1000 grit. Buy a Safariland QLS Female 22 mount, don’t mount on a midride? Just two suggestions. It all matters what QLS female side you are attaching it to. This would be a first for safety criticism with 1911’s.

    I have just received my holster that I ordered May 9, 2019, and I have a couple things to say; my Glock 21 fits nicely in the holster and it has a fairly smooth draw, but the tension screw on my TLR-1 is scraping against the inside cutting into the material. The next thing I have to say isn’t about the holster, but the customer service and the website. When I was making the order, I selected rush shipping because I wanted it for a range day, but the website re-selected the option without my knowing. It selected no rush 2-4 week shipping. By the time I realized, it was already the day before the range day, and I was not happy. Make sure you select the correct shipping before ordering. Now for my last thing to say. Make sure to check your email constantly, I received the order completion email and the delivered email at the time, after I received the package. 4 out of 5 stars, for good quality product, but for iffy customer service.

      Thanks for your review. Rush ordering option says “Rush ordering is temporarily unavailable” in 2 locations of the description of shipping and no rush drop down is an option. It has been in this configuration for 3 months. The website did not automatically change it on you. I was unavailable from the get go. Sorry for the confusion..

      Some features on lights are used as retention points. For this configuration, the rail screw on the TLR1 is a partial retention point. So there will be some break in will occur: i.e. shavings. Solution to this to speed it up, is to apply some gun lube on the hot spots in the holster. It smooths out pretty quick.

      I verified your emails. Your completion email was sent the same day it shipped and is confirmed on our back end that was received without being bounced back. You may have an issue with your browser or cache needs to be cleared. Spam filter may have caught it, but accepted both emails, completion and delivery because it accepted the delivery email.

    Perfect fit and good retention. I will be ordering a second for my other pistol soon.

  5. Kelcie (verified owner)

    Just got my OWB holster for my VP9SK with TRL-7. Fits snug and love the minimal size of the holster! Will definitely be ordering another in the near future!

  6. Thomas Olean (verified owner)

    Solid holster. Fast shipping. I will be ordering more in the future. The QLS option is very convenient.

  7. Tom (verified owner)

    Real good holster. Clamps more on the x300 than the gun, so you get less holster wear. 👌 Some of the best options available for customization. Will be buying more.

  8. Sean De La Rosa (verified owner)

    Nice solid construction yet light weight. I had my concerns that it seemed lighter and thinner than other kydex holsters I was accustomed to but it seems to hold retention well and be durable. I have already ordered another holster for the same pistol for edc use and look forward to continue purchasing more in the future

  9. Caleb (verified owner)

    This is a very well built holster. Fit and retention were perfect. Build time and shipping were excellent.

  10. David (verified owner)

    Excellent holster. Fit and finish are outstanding. Firearm and all accessories fit snug and hold tight. The addition of the QLS fork is an added benefit. I’ve already ordered another for a different pistol.

  11. Charlie Carlisle Jr. (verified owner)

    Excellent holster, arrived exactly as ordered and quicker than expected! Craftsmanship and quality! Ordered a second (iwb) immediately after opening.

  12. drew (verified owner)

    This was my 2nd holster from ANR. really beautiful work. Well thought out design. Perfect fit, and even allows me to work the decocker and mag release while holstered. WELL DONE.

  13. Jason Hayes (verified owner)

    Was in need of a quality holster for an FN 5.7. Am very pleased with ANRs holster. Quality and detail are spot on! Retention and adjustability are great. Will purchase from them again!

  14. Alden (verified owner)

    Great fit and retention and the QLS fork being included is very handy. Highly recommended.

  15. Josh (verified owner)

    Holster is great – love the fact it includes the QLS Fork as well. ANR also had the holster done much sooner than expected! Thanks guys!

  16. Mark Paladino (verified owner)

    Received my holster and its everything people say it is. Great! Worth the wait! The fit, finish and lead time were all what was expected.
    The only disappointment is that the holster switches the safety off when I holster. There’s no mention of this on the website.
    If its for a gun with no safety option, this would be fine but for one with an optional safety, this should not happen.

    • Alex Costa

      Have you emailed customer service? Also, most folks put notes in the customer comments section during checkout about things like safeties. We do not have a safety model designation listed. A standard M&P does not have a safety, so it’s not standard tooling. If you reach out to CS, they can cut the guard below the safety.

  17. Thomas (verified owner)

    Outstanding holster, arrived exactly as ordered with the Safariland QLS Fork. The fit and finish are second to none, no rough edges or burrs. Retention and adjustability are terrific. This was my first purchase from ANR but it won’t be my last.

    Very crisp tight fit with the holster to my weapon. Very pleased with it!

  20. Steve (verified owner)

    Great design. Anr catered to my suppressor height sights and threaded barrel. It was well worth the lead time and money.

  21. Niko (verified owner)

    Absolutely love my holster. This was my first dive into a quick detach/modular setup-up and I’m very happy I went with the QLS. The holster itself is amazingly well made and fits like a glove for my MK25. This is my second holster platform for AnRD and, again, I love it.

  22. Tj (verified owner)

    Very well done, easy to decipher what I wanted and needed on the website. Lead time was as accurate as can be and the holster itself is an excellent item!

  23. Cole (verified owner)

    Received my Holster the other day for my Beretta M92X with TLR-1 Light, in the FDE Carbon Fiber.

    Boy am I impressed with this holster. From older reviews, it sounded as though there was some QA things about the holsters (warped, not cut properly etc), but can hopefully say that is of the past as there were no imperfections, large or small to be found on mine, nor on either of the 2 holsters my brothers ordered.

    Will be coming here for future holster needs, and will be recommending AnR design to anyone who is looking for an affordable, customizable holster to fit their unique carry needs.

  24. Jimmy Girvan (verified owner)

    Perfect fit for my G45 with the TLR7 light could not be happier!!!! Super fast custom built holster at a GREAT price that was right the first time. I will be ordering another in the very near future.

  25. Nigel (verified owner)

    Ordered this holster for my CZ P 10C as an upgrade from my serpa ( I know, I know 🤦🏽‍♂️) but can’t express enough how much it has improved my Kit ergonomics. I’m ruining the Safariland QRL system on multiple belts and this holster snaps in effortlessly. The retention is amazing for a kydex holster. Cut and finish were exquisite. If you’re even thinking about buying one just go ahead and add it to cart! You won’t regret it.

  26. Jackson Smythe (verified owner)

    Great holsters for my glock 17 and another for my 21, both Trijicon rmr, surefire 300u, and threaded barrel. Solid retention. No issues. Very secure and comfortable.

  27. Yuecheng Qin (verified owner)

    Good quality holster, Only Problem is that I wish it had more retention on the gun, I bought an OWB and IWB, both are good holsters but with almost no retention at all on the gun itself, tried adjusting it and tighten down screws but still, it barely holds it in.

    • Alex Costa

      Have you reached out to customer service with your issue? They can generally find a solution.

  28. Lucien (verified owner)

    Very impressive and sturdy OWB. Came out better than i expected. I would purchase another when the time comes. I would recommend to any one looking for an OWB that will last.

  29. Robert Warren (verified owner)

    ANR stepped up when the other holster builders balked… they said yes to every specification I requested. Optic Cut, Suppressor Height Sights, Tactical Light, Threaded Barrel, QLS fork and made for a Poly 80 full size (G-17) frame. Couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Fit is excellent, it’s snug without maxing the tension screws. Attention to detail was evident… smooth rounded edges and perfect contour in all the right places. Delivery was as promised and I received exactly what I ordered. Good Job !

    Received holster for P320 Compact/Xcarry with Olight PL-mini2. fit and finish were nice. Retention is great and adjustable, with the weapon clicking into place securely.
    Shipping took a little bit longer than anticipated. Expect to be on the back end of the estimated 2-4 week time-frame. My order was placed on July 9. An update email was sent on August 14 with a tracking number, and holster was received on August 20. While frustrating in this day-and-age of same-day delivery options that are available from certain websites, I can understand the time it takes to provide a quality product, especially with the rush in the gun industry. That being said – my only complaint about the product pertains to the covering over the trigger guard extending out to interfere with the draw of the weapon. After several repetitions of drawing and re-holstering, I had a small nick on the knuckle of my middle finger where I grip the weapon. I’m sure a dremel or some sandpaper can fix this easily, but for something I waited 6 weeks for, I would have expected this to have been fixed before it left their warehouse.

  31. Richard Thomas (verified owner)

    I got this as an alternative to my Safariland, for times when I don’t need all the extra retention. I carry enough stuff as it is and this holster cuts down on weight and bulk. I carry a CZ SP-01 with streamlight. The holster works well with the weight and retention is really good. I was nervous that it might fall out with some “activities” but this has not been the case. Just buy one.

  32. First Time Gun Owner (verified owner)

    Seems like a good holster.. I purchased this for my pistol. Then I changed my sight. So this won’t work. Kept it because it will fit my son’s gun. He has one already. Can’t hurt to have a spare.

  33. Nick (verified owner)

    Very high quality holster for a hard to find setup. I had a hard time finding a holster for a P-10F that supported an optic and the older Inforce APL. ANR had the correct configurations, delivered on time, and upon receipt this is a high quality product. I would use them again.

  34. Jason crawford (verified owner)

    I ordered two holsters for my fnx and am very happy with them both i did mess up and order both with the qls fork meaning to get one with a belt loop but that was me not paying attention but all and all both holsters are very well made and have great retention will definitely come back for my next holsters
