The Alien Gear Cloak Mod Paddle OWB Holster for the MAX-9® pistol includes a curved holster paddle with a retainment lip that protects the paddle holster from being removed during a struggle. The Cloak Mod’s strength begins at its core with a spring-steel flex plate layer provides that strength and support. It also includes a thermo elastomer retention membrane, a durable material that rests between your gun and the steel flex plate. When holstering your firearm, this thick layer of thermo elastomer snaps the pistol into place and retains it once it’s there. The holster's open-mouthed design allows the gun's muzzle to find a perfect access point to the rest of the gun holster. The Alien Gear Five-Point Customization System provides each open carrier with a variety of carry options. It allows carriers to adjust the cant/angle and level of retention. The Cloak Mod holster also has the ability to become a belt slide holster - just swap out the paddle component and replace it with the belt slide that came with the order. While this holster comes only with the shell to fit the MAX-9®, the Cloak Mod’s holster shells are fully swappable, allowing owners to easily switch out the holster shell to match other firearms. Fits the MAX-9 pistol only - available in black only - includes the Ruger logo. Right hand fit only. Made in the USA by Alien Gear Holsters. Note: this holster fits pistols with optics installed.
