SR9c in an SR9 Serpa Holster

I just received my Serpa Holster for the SR9 to use with my SR9c.

I noticed that the barrel is almost 1 1/2" shorter than the holster, has anyone ever done a grind down on the holster to make it shorter (and more concealable) which would basically make it the same length as the 9c barrel?

I have access to a nice sander that would sand down the holster nice and square, but was wondering about the ability to grind the poly carbonate down evenly without screwing it up. I know it will probably void the 1 year warranty, who cares.

I know it will make some 90 degree edges but i can smooth them down afterwards.

Let me know if anyone else has done something think this.

Thank you in advance.

Unless you're in a huge hurry I'd send it back. There are plenty of great holsters for the compact version. I just bought mine yesterday and this is the Holster I ordered.

I would just go for it. I was considering doing the same thing.

I've yet to find any other "locking" retention holster for the SR9C. Seems that the Blackhawk Serpa is the only option right now. Considering how many SR9C's have been sold, you would think other companies would make a locking retention holster for it.

When you are finished cutting it down (I would suggest cut and chamfer instead of grind), consider posting some photos. I sure would like to see how it turns out.

Any updates on the cut down? Did you ever do it? I have the same issue in finding a retention holster for my SR9C. I would love to have a Safariland ALS, but no go.

Currently I use a cheap (non-retention) Fobus. Don't care for it much.
I also have the Crossbreed Supertuck for daily carry. Love that holster!!

I am in need of a holster for tactical pistol classes, so....

I ordered a Serpa for a SR9 and will think about modifications later. (not really too keen on Blackhawk, but so limited for my gun)

Let us know if you did the holster adjustment. Thanks.
