Hello everyone; very new here! I traded a Browning Buckmark for a 22/45 Mark III threaded barrel and couldn't be happier. Don't get me wrong, the Buck was a great gun but it was a tad large in my hands. The Ruger fit's like a glove and I hope to add a suppressor some day.
My question is about holsters. I have a Burris Fastfire II mounted in the rear sight dovetail postion. Love how low and clean it is. Now I'm trying to find a quality leather holster for it.
I've seen all the ones on the ruger web site but obviously they don't accomodate a red dot sight and they leave the trigger exposed. I've looked at the offerings from COW; nice if you have a big scope on it but not for a tiny Burris at the very rear of the receiver.
I did find a model 1827 from El Paso Saddelry that may work since it leaves most of the rear receiver out of the holster.
Does anyone have this holster or some other quality holster that doesn't cover the receiver from the back end of the ejection port opening to the bolt? I've attached a pic of my gun with the red dot so imagine putting this in a nice leather holster and the optic is just outside the holster.
I bought a Triple K holster and was going to "notch" it for the red do but it's got a very thick sight channel so I'm selling that cheap on this forum.
I've even talked to a few custom holster makers where I've purchased CCW holsters but none of them have a model of this gun for molding.
Any input would be great and if you have this holster from El Paso I'd LOVE to see pictures of it and hear what you think!!
PS, as much as I like the looks of the compensator, it'll come off when I'm carrying this in the field. It's simply too long with this on it for field carry. I'll make an exception when it's a supressor!
