I'm looking into getting a new holster for a plate carrier set-up (226). I've always used a Paraclete RMV which has 7 MOLLE loops across and space for a SERPA mount + easy mag drawing from below. However I'm currently only running plates in a much more compact package.

I'm looking for something that I can run on my hip/leg. I've tried leg holsters before and I absolutely despise them and drawing a side-arm from belt height into a plate carrier is not working for me. I was wonder if anyone could recommend something that mounts on the thigh between the leg and hip, the closest description would be "cowboy" style. I've come across a 3004(?) or 6004-77(?) with 1 leg loop and belt attachment on Ebay which looked right. However I don't know how much its worth of it so I'm slightly reluctant to do anything until I get some opinions from you guys as to what would suit my needs.

The only holsters I have no interest in are G-Code.

Thanks!

If I'm following correctly, it seems that you are looking for a low belt ride holster, with a secured hold on the leg.
Have you considered the once upon a time fashionnable safariland UBL/Leg strap combo?

That's an easy do it yourself job.

Otherwise, First Spear has an OTS solution based on that concept

Granted, this solution doesn't work for everybody. I am personnaly happy with a one leg strap 6004 worn high on the hip, or even a plain 6280 with a 2" UBL

Blackhawk! do their 'Jacket Slot Duty Belt Loop' which pushes the serpa holster down about two inches from the hip. That's another possibility.

Though personally I'd say go with the above Safariland.

This will not work with all SERPA Holsters like I read, only with Duty Versions!

Correct me if I´m wrong, but just read this a few hours ago from some user expierence who bought new screws and screw nuts to "mod" it.

I use a standard 6004 with a UBL and no leg strap. It works just fine for me, and is used with a plate carrier 80% of the time. I have one of the multicam cloth covered ones cut for an MRD (I don't recall the model) and run it the same way.

Yes, you'll need longer screws to mount the concealed carry serpa holster onto this belt loop, but they're normal metric screws, you can buy them in any hardware store (in Europe - but maybe in the US also), so it's not a big deal.

I use the Safariland/UBL combo with my set up. I do not run a leg strap as I have found them to be more of a nuisance when you have walk a distance.

I have the Safariland MLS on my gear. This kit allows me to swap out the holster with other SF holsters without having to remove the hardware on the belt.

I'm going to piggy back on this thread; anyone know any european dealers selling the ALS series of holsters? I can only find the shroud holsters.

S&S adjustable belt mount with safari land or serpa. The S&S is really slick and rock solid.
