Ok, I know I'm late! I just started a new thread for this exact topic and then found this. I've recently started working with kydex (about a week now) and have done two projects so far. I highly recommend playing with kydex if youre looking for a hobby or want to make quality equipment with little investment. Here are a few pictures. My first project is an XD mag carrier and the second is a hybrid holster I bought for my XD but recently got a g19 an wanted to refit the holster. The leather is from the old holster as is the kydex (I didn't feel like using new kydex since this was already cut and edges were finished). I took the old rivets out and drilled and punched new holes in the kydex and leather. Heated the old kydex and remolded it to the g19 and put in the new rivets. Also, I added a tacticool "combat" cut just because. Next I hope to tackle a OWB holster for the wifes Beretta mini cougar
What brand is that hybrid holster you bought? It looks to me like there isn't enough leather to move the clips out away from the kydex. I played with some similar designs and never cared for how they fit.
It's from www.concealmentsolutions.com a guy out of Utah named Jason Christiansen makes them. And yea when I remolded the kydex to the glock it went over towards the clip a bit more than I would have liked. When I bought it for the XD it was perfect. Jason makes an awesome holster and he's a really great guy to deal with
Yea he compares them with crossbreed but there are a few differences. One being the quality of leather and another being his excellent customer service. I highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a hybrid. I'm hoping to start making hybrids eventually. And you are right! It is very addicting! I'm trying to get the plans down for a light carrier for my stream light polytac. Hoping to tackle that in the next week or so. I just hate that I can only do it on the weekends because of my work schedule!
I wouldnt say it's hard. It's time consuming for sure if you don't have the tools to expedite the process (rivet press, belt sander, scroll saw) I do all of it by hand. Check out phillyEDC on YouTube. He has a fantastic 2 part video on how to do it and goes over all of the tools and materials you need
