    looking into making a holster for my friends IWI baby eagle in .45ACP with a streamlight TLR-2S

    seeing as how the generic holsters are wobbly and junky were gonna do a custom build

    but i have a few questions

    what thickness do you guys tend to use for holsters

    is there a specific grade to stick to? we have found some with different names like kydex100 and kydex-v which is supposedly a recycled form

    also any good suppliers to look into?

    were doing a platform that can be attatched to a belt or dropleg rig any suggestions?

    All I know is my buddies that make knife sheaths use the thicker .090 stuff rather than the .060. The .090 is very stiff.

    You want Kydex100.
    AFAIK, all of the knife and sheath making supply companies that you'll find online only carry Kydex 100, so, if you order from Jantz Supply, Texas Knifemaker's, knifekits.com, etc., that's what you'll get.

    i, generally, use .080 for holsters.
