Default Tactical thigh rig for gp100 6"???

I'm looking for a thigh rig for my gp100, in nylon, and am having a helluva time locating one. I've contacted Blackhawk, Galco, Optics Planet and several others with no luck. Does such a thing even exist and if so where can I get my hands on one? If I need to have one custom made then who do I need to talk to? At the range I keep my Glock 21 in a paddle on my hip, the tactical thigh would work perfectly sitting below that on my leg. I don't need the leather "cowboy" style flopping around on me, needs to be secured to my leg. Any suggestions would be much appreciated...Thanks!

Not to be rude, but why would you need to carry a GP100 in a thigh rig? Could a shoulder holster work instead?

First of, unless it's for nothing more than an accessible place to put it, thigh rigs suck. Ask anyone who wears one for a living.

I know for a fact you won't find one for a revolver at any off the shelf store. Blade Tec may be able to make a custom one, if you really insist on it but it will cost you. Good luck in your search.

Might just have to pick up a nylon holster and some Velcro and make your own.

That's pretty much it, accessibility at the range, shoulder rigs don't do it for me for some reason. Thank you to all for your responses, it's greatly appreciated!

One of them fancy western holsters with the leather tie at the bottom for quick draw, would be a good in between fit and may work.

I wear a thigh rig for my sidearm when hunting, traversing rough country, etc...but don't recommend one for a revolver...unless maybe you can get a real snug fit.

Yep,wheel guns do flop around in thigh rigs. You would have to have double straps coming out of the side of the holster rather than from behind to make it lay right.
