  • What is the status of my order?
    • We have two statuses. "Processing" and "Shipped." Each order is hand made and we are pretty good about staying within the agreed lead time. Please refrain from sending us an email inquiring about the status of your order if it is still within the lead time period. We understand wanting to know an update but taking time away from building the holsters to answer emails only delays the process more.

  • Do you do rush orders?
    • No we do not. Orders are handled on a first come first serve basis. We want to make things fair across the board so we do not accept additional payment for rush orders.

  • Will the paint and/or cerekote on my slide be affected by the holster?
    • Our holsters are made from Kydex plastic which is a hard thermo-folding plastic. Normal wear and tear will occur from the slide touching the holster when drawing and re-holstering. Aftermarket slides which have been machined with additional serrations and/or windows can cause additional wear and tear if out of spec. We use actual firearms with OEM slides to fit all holsters before shipping them out to customers. We are not responsible for scratches and/or scuffs done to the paint job on your firearm.

  • Do you guys make holsters for "this" particular firearm or weapon light setup?
    • In short, no we don't. If it isn't on our website we do not currently offer it. We do some custom one off work but it is typically for locals or promo stuff going out into media. Sorry.

  • I am local can I just come by and pickup my order?
    • No. We do not currently run a store front and scheduling times to have gear picked up has become too difficult so we do not allow for local pickup.

  • I want a different style clip or the design tweaked on my order.
    • If it isn't on our website we do not offer it. Please do not put additional instructions in the comments section and expect for your order to be altered from our designs. A lot of time goes into our design and mocking up our molds, therefore we do not want to delay the process anymore by having to change the setup.

  • High vs. Low Sweat Guard
    • The sweat guard is the portion of the holster that keeps the back side of the slide from touching your body/skin. The High Sweat Guard option typically goes to the top of the slide and completely covers it. This is the case with most weapon/light setups. When selecting the TLR1 or X300U we try to cover as much of the slide as possible. Due material size constraints we cannot always make the sweat guard the full length of the slide. The Low Sweat Guard option typically covers the slide halfway between the chamber and top of the slide.

  • The "Click" & Holster Fitment
    • The "click" sound that most people think of when purchasing a Kydex holster comes from the pocket created by the trigger guard area. When purchasing a holster with a weapon light attached the pocket no longer exists due to the channel created for the light. Some lights will still make that "click" sound however, most small/flush weapon lights like the PL-Mini or APLc will not. All of our holsters come with multiple points of adjustable retention to retain the weapon via friction. The "click" sound is not something we market or guarantee with our holsters.

  • Will my holster still retain my gun if I take the weapon light off?
    • If you purchase a holster from us made for a firearm with a light attached, the light needs to be attached in order for it to retain the weapon. Some customers have reported that their holster still retains the weapon without the light, however we do not recommend this as our holster are not designed to do this.

  • Do your holsters accommodate compensators?
    • Please contact us before placing your order to ensure that we can accommodate your compensator. Not all of our custom molding is designed to allow for compensators. Simply selecting the threaded barrel option will NOT result in your holster being able to allow a compensator.

  • Do you offer the Olight PL-Mini 2?
    • No. Due to the sliding mechanism on the light we are unable to produce a holster that would accommodate all of the different positions the light could be placed in. Due to this we do not offer any holster with this configuration. The PL Valkyrie 2 is not the same light. That is their larger weapon light and if this is selected, your holster will not be refunded or exchanged if you meant for it to have the PL Mini 2. NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • What Generation Glock do your holsters fit?
    • Our holsters are made to accommodate all generation Glocks (1-5).

  • Do I receive shipping and tracking confirmation when my order ships?
    • Once your order ships an email is sent to your email address on file with a shipping notification and tracking number.

  • Can I return my holster if I ordered the wrong model/color/option?
    • In short, no. Each order is custom made to the customer and it is the responsibility of each customer to verify their order is correct before placing it. As stated at checkout, "I have verified that my order is correct and I understand that if I would like to make changes I will need to cancel my order and place a new one with a new lead time. Refunds/Exchanges will not be made for orders placed incorrectly.

  • What are the fabric options? What do they do?
    • We offer a special feature of a fabric overlay. This is where we adhere your favorite camo pattern in durable fabric called Cordura to the holster so that it matches your gear identically. We also now offer some holsters in Cotton which is a softer material. When selecting the Cordura fabric options please know that the edges are buffed/burned into the plastic to give it a finished edge. When choosing the Cotton fabric options please note that the edges are cut and burned however since the fabric is much softer the ends of the fabric do not burn as cleanly which can give the look of a rough edge. The Kydex edges are still buffed and polished to a nice smooth finish, however the fabric is cut with fine scissors to make it as close to the edge as possible. Most customers do not notice, however we want to ensure that this is covered before ordering.

  • What barrel length 1911/2011 do I select??
    • We offer our 1911/2011 holster line up in two lengths. The Commander 4.25" barrel length and the Government 5" barrel length. So, for example, if you have a Staccato P 4.4" 2011, you would want to select the 5" barrel length because the 4.25" barrel length holster will be too short. If you are ordering a 4.25" barrel length holster with a large weapon light, like the SureFire X300U, the holster will be as long as the light and slightly cut back on IWB models, like our "Discreet" and "More Discreet" Holsters, so that the footprint isn't as big. If it a 4.25" barrel length holster with a weapon light that is longer than the gun like the X300U or the Streamlight TLR-1, then the holster will be as long as the light, which in most cases is the same length as the 5" barrel length. Fitment is still the same, however we ensure the entire weapon setup including the light is covered and protected by the holster. If you have additional questions regarding this, please e-mail us at info@qvotactical.com. Orders placed with a 4.25" barrel length holster for a 4.4" gun will not be refunded/exchanged as we have explained what is needed here.
