Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions
What is your current lead time?

Our current lead time is one to two weeks. This means that orders will take usually between one to two weeks before they are shipped. All CVT holsters are handcrafted with quality taking precedence over quantity. If you would like to check the status of an order just send us a message via the Contact page. We value your business and are happy to provide real-time status updates.

How do I know which model will fit my gun?

 If you see your model available in the dropdown box with the selected product, it fits. If you don't see your model listed, it is likely a custom order. Contact us via the Contact page and we'd be happy to assist.

What are your holsters made out of?

While some of the description titles for the graphics may include identifiers such as denim, carbon fiber, scratched metal, etc. you can rest easy knowing these are just description titles. We use made in the USA Kydex® or Holstex®. 

What's a sweat guard/body shield?

The sweat guard/body shield is the upper most portion of the holster as it is worn. The full sweat guard/body shield covers the whole rear slide of the firearm to keep the skin, sweat, garments, etc. off of the slide of the firearm. Below are examples showing the M5 Tuckable with none, half, and a full sweat guard/body shield.

Will the holster wear the finish on my gun?

No more than any other holster material. It's likely to wear the finish less than leather or nylon would. As with all holsters, it depends on how it's used. In many ways KYDEX® or Holstex® is the superior choice material to use for gun holsters. KYDEX® and Holstex® give you a tactical advantage by allowing you to manipulate the slide of your firearm one handed. They can also be wiped out very easily to prevent dirt, dust, and sand accumulation which can have a sandpaper effect on the gun's finish. Let us know if you're super concerned about the finish we'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

How do your multi fit holsters work with so many different models of firearms?

At Concho Valley Tactical we've created a device that serves as an internal trigger guard stop for a holstered firearm. In addition, the internal trigger guard stop forces the barrel of the firearm against the front spine of the holster as the firearm is inserted into the holster to prevent unnecessary wobbling of the gun within the holster. Ultimately, it’s the adjustable trigger guard stop working in concert with the cover mounting screws and rubber spacers that make the M-1, M-2 and Shellback holster compatible with such a wide variety of handguns.

How do you make your holsters?

Our holsters start out as flat sheets of thermoplastics made in the USA. Each piece is handcrafted and made to order using a combination of heat, pressure, and surgical precision.
