Fits well, retains well (for an IWB holster) and draws really quickly. $60 but with a 6 week wait.



Highly recommended.

FYI, I tried my M&P in a Blade Tech IWB for a Glock 17/22 and it fits perfectly. There is no wait for IWBs for Glock 17s, they're available from BT and from Brownells.

I can see havin kydex for a OWB, but a IWB?
It dosent flex at all so it cant conform... I just dont get it.

Im meeting the guys from http://www.andrewsleather.com/ this weekend. Ill be testing one of their holsters for the M&P for the next month. I already have four for other pistols and I love em.

I was surprised how comfortable my Bladetech is , even while driving . Its kind of putting my UncleMike's OWB panckae holster to shame .

Sam was just in Atlanta a few weeks ago so I got a new belt and a McDaniel for my M&P. I used one he made for the Sig229w/rail and it fits like a glove.
He's comming back in December to the biggest gun show in the south up at the Gwinett ELCO. Since he uses a hydraulic press he has to wait on the aluminum gun molds to make one for the M&P and the molds wont be ready till December. Slackass guys who make them are draggin their feet the lazy %$#&*'s!

I am looking for a good IWB. Which Bladetech is better the standard IWB or the Ultimate IWB? For only $5 difference it seems like it might be worth it for the adjustable cant. I've also been hearing a lot of good things about the Comp-tac C-T.A.C. Does anyone know which is better?

Well, that's really a matter of personal preference. I have both for my Walther P99, IMO they both have pros and cons but in they end the Blade-Tech UCH wins by a large margin. Here's my take on the features of both.



BT UCH

Comfortable

Single belt loop, easier to conceal but allows for some torque of the holster without proper belt...

Because the belt loop "wing" is also kydex, it pulls the grip in tighter to the body to aid in

concealment.

Phillips head adjustment screws. Can be tightened up with a leatherman if need be.

6-8 week wait



CTAC

Very adjustable, great first time holster to figure out what cant and such you want in the future.

Uses a VERY small allen wrench to tighten screws, easily lost and not a common size in a wrench

kit...

fairly comfortable.

A bit more stable than BT with two clips but I found them a bit of a pain to wrestle with getting

them on. Could be operator error on that one though...


3-5 DAY wait!



My suggestion if you are in a hurry to get a holster is get the CTAC first as it will arive much sooner and be a very acceptable stop gap until you can order and wait for the BT UCH.



Sincerely,

MC

Ricky, what model IWB holster are you running? I tried all my G17 holsters with my M&P and not a single one of them works




ETA: I did find an M&P specific OWB holster on Brownells; 098-000-044

I use the one size fits all (Glock) BT holster. I also tried the gun in the regular BT IWB ( I don't know the exact nomenclature, but it's not the UCR, it's the standard IWB) for a Glock 17. As you can see in the picture, the trigger guard extended past the holster outline but retention is not lost.

Don't know if Uncle Mike is making M&P holsters yet, but when they do, its 2X better than the BladeTech Holster at 3X off the BladeTech price. How do I know? I bought both for my SW 99. The Uncle kicks BladeTech's butt.

Never had any problem. Actually magazine release is supposed to be exposed, all my 1911 IWB holsters, leather and kydex, are that way.
