I see your post is from February, so hopefully you have your extended mag. I bought the Nano in September and it came with the 6rnd mag and the extended 8rnd mag. I have large hands and don't care for the 5rnd, but the 8rnd fits great.

I've fired about 500 rounds through the Nano with no issues, using brass and steel cartridges, 115 and 124 grain. I also fired 16 of my self defense cartridges through the Nano as I've read some SDA hang up when loading into chamber.

No issues with my Nano at all... Love the smooth and compact design and the extended 8rnd magazine. I will be ordering a couple more of the extended magazines.

2 thumbs up from me on the Nano...

I've been researching holsters for a few months now and the N82 is on the top of my list. I'm still waiting for my CWP to arrive so taking my time researching.

I'm a bigger guy and think I would prefer to carry on the small of back as opposed to the side. The research I've done shows this holster can be carried both ways. Do you have any experience carrying SOB?

Thanks again for sharing and carry safely.

I have about an 1/8" gap on mine. I shoot most rounds through this mag so other than a small cosmetic issue all is good here.

Yes. I noticed a similar gap as well.
I have to admit I got so used to firing my Nano with the 6 round mag that the 8 round Mage almost seems awkward...almost.

I put a lasermax on my nano and now it doesn't fit In my n82 tactical holster so I ordered an alien gear hybrid holster for it . I will still keep my n82 for other firearms I have. Does anyone have any feedback good or bad on the alien gear holsters , by the way the price on these holsters is great . Thanks

they seem decent, a lot like my old faith holster IWB. And you cant beat the price. I paid $50 for my old faithful and I thought it was a bargain. Hell, if you don't like it send it back!

thanks for the info . Have you ever had any printing problem or did you need bigger pants for these kinds of holsters
