The Halcyon (formerly the Ares) is the most durable model that we make, ideal for use in force on force training where lots of stress is regularly applied to the holster. If we don’t offer the pistol model that you want, check out the Doulos with DCC clips. This model, the Halcyon, is the superior option for strong side carry.
Lead time averages 1-2 weeks. That is an estimate, not a promise.
The soft loops, coming standard, will fit 1.25″, 1.5″, or 1.75″ belts. Angle of cant is adjustable by moving one or both of the soft loops. If you’d prefer a single clip that is tuckable, that’s an option. You can adjust ride height and cant with the Discreet Carry Concepts clip. The DCC clip will give a wider range of adjustment, while the soft loops are easier to get on/off the belt.
The belt claw, sometimes called a wing, will rotate/tuck the grip into the body and comes standard. It is modular, coming with two claw heights to provide different levels of grip rotation. If you decide you want no tuck at all, just remove the claw tip with a Phillip’s head screw driver. If you want the RCS or DSG claw, please make a note on the order asking for it. The claw comes standard at no extra cost.
A wedge, if you’re planning to wear it at the appendix position, is available as an addon. Important note: the RCS wedge does not bolt up to this holster.
Retention is adjustable.
Red dot optic compatibility comes standard on this holster. Note that if you choose a full height sweat guard it will NOT cover the rear sights. If you want a full height guard that covers the rear sights, order full height and make a note on the order requesting it.
The holster features a generous sight channel which accommodates suppressor height sights.
The bottom of the holster is left open to accommodate threaded barrels and ensure that anything falling into the holster will likely fall right out. It will be slightly longer than the pistol to prevent anything from bumping it up and losing proper retention.
Planning on carrying it AIWB? Besides adding a wedge (foam only, the RCS wedge will not bolt up) it is highly recommended that you go with the “AIWB length” option. The extra length not only stabilizes the pistol, but it also spreads out the pressure and makes it more comfortable. Remember, we can always cut the holster down, but it’s impossible to add it back. 😉
Belt claw options:
- The Modwing comes standard. The tip of the claw is removable and has two options for height.
- The RCS VG claw sticks out to the side farther than the Modwing or the Dark Star Darkwing. This gives more grip rotation than the Modwing with less belt deformation. It’s what I use for my full size carry pistol.
- The Dark Star Gear Darkwing is tapered, designed to work synergistically with the wedge, or possibly remove the need for the wedge if you’re one of the few that don’t need both. It’s aggressive, creating lots of grip rotation, and is not modular.
Vacuum formed on CNC molds for precision, it is crafted from the industry standard .08 thickness of Boltaron/Kydex.
30 day satisfaction guarantee in black! If you don’t love it – for any reason – return it for a full refund. This does NOT apply to the various other colors and patterns.
Please note that not every model is available in both left and right hand options at this time. RH or LH will denote which is which; I’m not as good at building websites as I am at building holsters.
Lead time averages 1-2 weeks. Thank you for your patience. I’m a one man operation most of the time, and life doesn’t always go according to plan.
