Looking for P228 holster Login/Join

I'm about to pick up one of the TALO P229 9mm classic and can't find holsters to fit either 228 (which it kind of is), or a non-railed 229 with the older narrower frame. Any help appreciated.

Do you want OWB or IWB? I use both a Milt Sparks SS2 and a Kramer iwb3 for my 228 and I'm positive the 229 fits both. The Sparks VM2 will fit, there are plenty and not just from the custom makers. Check Top Gun Supply they may have the vm2 but none of the three mentioned are cheap, I always see someone selling in the classified here or one of the other boards. OWB is the same as IWB as far as availability. I just saw a El Paso Saddlery Tortilla stle owb over on the 1911forums.

I'm looking for a CCW holster, probably IWB.

The TALO P229 9mm classic carry is built on the older style non-railed frame and only holds the 13 round 9mm magazines, so I am thinking that a P228 holster would be the one to look for. I could be wrong though and I'm having no luck at all finding a holster made for the old 228. I just don't want to get a 229 holster and have it be too loose because the new 229 has a rail and a wider frame and slide.

Post a wtb ad in the classified ads here on the board and you'll get some replies. I don't think you will have a problem with a 229 holster even if it's for a railed model, Galco uses the same holsters for both models.

Check Ryan's work on www.rgrizzleleather.com

He makes some truly outstanding holsters and I know he has one for the P228.

If he still has the VM2, it doesn't get much better than that

I own both a VM2 and a Raptor. Both are outstanding holsters.

I think I have a Kydex 228 IWB holster that I don't use since I sold off my 228. I'd be willing to karma you that if you're interested. It's a Blade-Tech UCH which I don't think is made any longer, but it works. Email addr is in my profile.

Try the IWB Hybrid at Ozark Holsters.
Dustin, the owner (and member of SigForum) made one for my M11A1 and I'm very pleased with it.
The M11 is basically a P228 or a P229 without the rail.
Dustin's holsters are good products at an affordable price.
I have his Hybrid IWB's for the M11, my P239, and my P250.
