Received mine a week, ago. Also ordered bodies for Walther PPS and Glock. Fantastic holster. The most comfortable CC holster I have. The FN "feels" small, and the Walther is tiny in this holster.

I have both the Comp-Tac and the Crossbreed for my FsN and my Sig 220 Elite. I have carried both holsters and both guns. In my opinion the Comp-Tac is the better holster. Craftsmanship on the CT is much better, Kydex is better, gun fit is much better.
THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IS THE COMP-TAC HAS TWO RETENTION ADJUSTMENT AND THE CROSSBREED HAS NONE. Both holsters were very comfortable and very concealable. The Comp-Tac is the only holster I will carry. It is head and shoulders above the Crossbreed. I have the horsehide version of the Comp-Tac, the most comfortable Holster I have ever carried, I like the way it spreads the carry over a wider distance. GREAT HOLSTER.

My new MTAC got in today for my 1911s. Before anyone goes off on the tacti-black idea, that is not why I got it. The holster for my FsN has brown leather, this black one is for my 1911s. I can tell at glance which one to grab or if I ask my gf to grab my holster for me I can just say what color. It is almost idiot proof...
I got the one for the 4.25" barrel because of my CBOB and it fits perfectly, the Kimber has a 4" barrel. The same holster will work for both. It fits a little tighter with the CBOB but does not require any adjustments when switching between the two. Total time order to door - 1 week.

If you want pics of the holster by itself you can either ask or photoshop the brown holster on the OP black :D

What a great thread. I am planning on buying one of these over the next few days. I was leaning toward CT, but now I think I may wait the five weeks for the CB.

Nope. I officially ordered my comp tac MTAC Today on 4/11. I will keep you posted as to when it arrives.
A liberal lady friend once argued that a lot of gun owners that are victims of a crime end up getting killed with their own weapons. That's absurd! If someone is going to kill me with my own gun, they're going to have to beat me to death with it, because it's going to be empty.

Arrived today, 4/16 Very nice! I'm trying to get it situated so it can be drawn easily. Also, yes, I did have to file that slide lever gaurd too. It seems like I'm going to have to expect a break-in period with this.

How many waist sizes did you have to go up to accommodate this holster?

I have a different brand IWB holster that I use, but I didn't change my pants size. I have comfortable pants that are not tight. The holster just made it more snug.

As far as the Comp-Tac holsters do y'all like the standard clips or the C clips? My other holster has a J clip, and the C clip looks like a comparable alternative, but I was looking for opinions.

Standard. C-clips are made for certain belt size whereas the standards can fit/function with anything <1.5"

V clips are nice too but you should stitch velcro to the inside of your belt- just a suggestion tho.

Typically it is just one, 32 becomes 34. Or if you have the option like I do - lose weight but don't change pant size :D

Okay. So I've had my Comp-Tac MTAC holster now for a couple days. I notice when I back off the tensioner screws all the way until they're loose that I'm happy with the fit and draw while the holster is in my lap. So I run the tensioner screws in until I just begin to get resistance and then an 1/8 of a turn more to be sure they don't fall out. Now while the holsters in my lap I'm still satisfied with the fit and draw. But when I put the holster on, by design, it is intended to tighten up somewhat, but I am having a real hard time drawing my weapon it's so tight and yet I feel like my pants are not too tight.

In the brochure that came with it this is lightly discussed implying that because while wearing the holster will tighten it up somewhat, it's okay to set the tensioners so that in a free state the gun would fall out when tipped upside down. But like I said, if I back the screws off all the way the gun still wont fall out. Do you think I need slightly larger rubber tensioner bushings? Has anyone else had this issue?

:agree:
Wear it a bit first & practice drawing. I didn't notice the issue with mine that you seem to be having. Mine was just stiff when returning the gun to the holster. Probably a break in issue.

Like i said I have them both. A couple of point to consider: The crossbreed does not offer full gun coverage it is one size fits all. You probably will not change out spare bodies, personal experience. They both offer velcro fasteners that connect to velcro lined belts. I have tried this and though it is very concealable, the holster and the belt are locked together. I found this to be uncomfortable there is no give or movement between the holster and the belt.IMHO

So now that im in the right forum :p I got my Spartan holster on Mon! The spartan is the same as the MTAC minus some IMHO cosmetic feature. First ill say that apparently im fat so its not as comfortable as i think it would be if i was 54 pounds lighter :facepalm: Noted. Other that that though I like it and will now work on the weight issue :skep: :facepalm: and will go from there! It looks pretty much like above. Noted. Oh order time was 5 days as well!

As posted before, I have them both. After using both for a while now. I have found it easier st buy a new holster than change bodies. did it once never again. the other thing that is different if it matters to you is that the comp-tac has full coverage. The crossbreed does not. I should say that you can get the Comp-tac as a slide or full coverage. For what is worth I use the Crossbreed more than the Comp-tac. If you are having fit problems The cross breed does not have a tension adj. You have to use a blow dryer to adjust tension.

Picked up a Comp Tac MTAC. Was deliberating between that and a Supertuck and I'm glad I went with the MTAC. Fit and finish is just what I'd expect from them and the turnaround was much shorter than their current 3-day production estimate. Ordered Friday afternoon, shipped Monday morning, in my hands Wednesday.

I chose the MTAC over the (slightly cheaper) Supertuck for several reasons:

1) The Supertuck will only work with the firearm you buy it for. The MTAC will allow you to swap out the kydex piece with other molded pieces so if you needed to, you can use the same leather with a different pistol.

2) The Supertuck (as far as I could determine) does not have any retention adjustment. As the holster wears, it will naturally lose a bit of grip. With the MTAC you can simply tighten down the retention screws and you're good to go. Alternately, if the holster's grip is too tight, you can back them off to be able to effectively draw the pistol.

3) The Supertuck leaves a large portion of the pistol exposed. Not really a big issue since the trigger is covered, but it makes it easier for clothing fibers/hair/what have you to work its way into your pistol and can also cause the front sight to get hung up on either your clothing or the kydex shell itself. The MTAC covers the pistol all the way to the muzzle, providing much better coverage and protection against any outside interference when drawing.

4) Comp Tac offers superior belt clip and cant options. All of their belt clips allow you to not only fine-tune the cant of the pistol by adjusting how they mount to the leather backing, but will also let you raise or lower the pistol's position. Comp Tac's C-Clip, V-Clip and Standard Clip also appear to give better holster retention by their inherent designs. Their Standard Clip hooks all the way around your belt and has a flat base to keep your belt from working the clip open. Their C-Clip has an open design but offers the same amount of retention as the Standard Clip. Their V-Clip is the stealthiest of all and utilizes special industrial velcro patches that can be stitched onto your belt and makes any external signs of a holster nigh invisible. With a proper stiff belt all these clips provide an easy draw. Even on my well worn-in 13-year old leather belt works great with the C-Clips. All their clips also come in four different colors to better match your typical carry dress (black, brown, chesnut, khaki). I ordered the chestnut color and it's pretty spot-on for that typical "western" style stained belt color.

5) Short lead time. The current Supertuck lead time is around a month. Comp Tac can crank one out and have it to your door in a week flat or less.

So that's pretty much it. A lot of holster choice is down to what works for you, and to me, the MTAC makes the most sense for a comfort-driven IWB holster.

Another thumbs up for the MTAC. Fits great, very comfortable. Rode 100+ miles today with wifey on the back, and it was rock solid. Even thru 85 mph sweepers... :D :D :D :D

Ok I am so close to pulling the trigger on these, but the kydex doesn't look like an awesome fit.. how loose is the gun in the kydex? is the only retention part holding the gun in the dimple in the trigger guard?
