Our holsters are custom fitted for not only the specific firearm, but also any attachments that on that firearm. Rather than using an optics cut on the holsters, we cover the optic which will provide some protection to the MRDS.
Under Search By Gun, find the make and model of the gun. Any MRDS options are listed separately from the base gun. Some may be listed as Base Gun with MRDS, or With Optic. Others may be listed as specific variants of the base gun, such as the Springfield Hellcat OSP or SCCY CPX-2RD.
MRDS accommodations we offer will generally fit the most common, smaller options for that pistol.
We are focused on offering more optic options, as well as light and laser bearing holsters in the future. Feel free to sign up for our newletters for notice on new offerings as they become available. Since there is so much demand in optics, lights and lasers, our primary focus is within our Cloak Series holsters over ShapeShift, as we are able to more quickly produce, test and release shells in that series. If we do not already offer an optic version in ShapeShift, we may not ever have an option for it, regretfully.
Cloak Series Holsters may potentially be modified by the user for optics, with some consideration. All other holster series are not recommended for modifications of this nature, and are not covered under warranty. ShapeShift holsters have a rail that holds the two halves of the shell together right where the optic would sit. Roswell holsters have the most MRDS accommodations for IWB holsters and Rapid Force holsters have the optional MRDS hood.
If you have an optic and you run Cloak Series holsters, the Boltaron shell may be trimmed for an optics cut. Sometimes it is a simple cut with a Dremel tool and a bit of sanding:
So long as the rear bolt on the Cloak Shell is whole, this modification may be acceptable for you. We cover Cloak Shell modifications under our Test Drive, Forever Warranty and Shell Swap program.
If you have recently picked up an optic, the easiest way to test if modification may be the way for you to go is to remove the shell from the base and lay your pistol with optic in the shell. Where the optic ends on the shell is where you would need to cut, so if it doesn't clear the rear bolt, it will not be an option for you. If it is well within the marked area, you can trace out the space needed with a pencil and make your modification.
Alternately, some of those larger optics that do not fit in our MRDS shells can be modified as well. The example below is a Sig P365 XMacro with a Holosun optic. We have based our mold on the RomeoZero optic and the Holosun was just a little taller than what we accommodated. The top of the "hood" was trimmed off to allow the pistol to fully seat.
Understandably, this is not an ideal option and not something we would go straight to recommending for all our customers. In an ideal situation, we'd have holsters for all the different kinds of attachments. We are expanding our selection of MRDS accommodations but having the shell cover the optic means it is slower going to develop the shells. For more information, here's a link to a blog:
