    I have a Theis horsehide IWB holster for an LC9, problem is I sold the LC9 back to my buddy. I have my eye on a Kahr CW9 and was wondering if the dimensions are close enough to use the Theis IWB?

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    My first thought is to sell me your LC9 holster at a deep discount :D

    Kydex is molded to the exact dimensions of a certain gun so no. That is why I buy Old Faithful hybrids. I had a Glock 27 and a holster that fit. Later I bought a Sig SP2022. So I ordered a new molded piece of kydex and swapped them out instead of buying a new holster. And I am now getting a piece of kydex for my new Kahr CW9. Get the Easy Assembly kit and they are only $50 shipped. After that, the kydex is like $15 pre-molded for another gun.

    Same holster, just different kydex.

    I just tied holstering a CW9 into a holster made for an LC9, and it won't go in....and it's leather which would be more forgiving than Kydex, so I say, no, it won't work.

    Holster Recomendation

    These hybrid holsters aren't that expensive, and are well-made. I've had both the LC9 & the CW9 (and a K9), and no, the holsters aren't interchangeable. But for the price, it's well worth buying additional holsters for each one that you want to carry.

    I strongly recommend Jack at Butschers Leather. He does good work at a great price.
