I wanted to share some photo's and accolades with Manny's new holster.

This is a unique holster as it address's the draw of the gun more so than any other holster I have seen or had. The lower photo shows a picture of 2 rollers BUT, they are magnetized which properly holds your gun in place which allows the wider tolerance around the trigger guard. the result is that no matter your angle of draw, the gun comes out and because there is no resistance, it feels like butter each and every time you draw.

My other holster brand would get caught up if you didn't draw it out perfect straight.

This holster has substance, the "feel" when you holster your gun is that of obvious substance and not plastic. there's nothing wrong with plastic, I just like the feeling of this better.

Similar locking style to other with same appearance and the lock is confident.

the other thing I like is that the positioning of the holster is easy and the locking it down is very nice as there 3 locking points for each position. It will never come undone accidentally.

I think it is a pretty cool holster and if you going to the Florida Open, check it out.

Played with this at SHOT (he had some there). NICE HOLSTER! We've got a couple on order form him and honestly compared to the Ghost, DAA and the like this is beyond GOOD.....

They run about what a DAA runs and ordering - just send him an email or call.

Do you know if there is a left handed version available or in the works?

I have a Ghost and don,t like the cheesey safety lever and plastic screws for ajustments.I was going to get a DAA but they have issues to.This looks like what I need could someone leave some more feed back.I am interested in one of these it looks good I like the rollers.

So, how it compares with DAA? Also, is it 1911 type of guns only?

Matt how about a better picture of the the bottom of the hanger. I would like a holster that rotates front to back and left to right at the bottom of hanger.

I would really email or call manny for a left hand version . I know he is making several models for different guns but ask him for the specifics.

As for a comparison to the daa, I have officially retired mine. I liked it but, if I didn't draw exactly right, it would get caught up.

The magnets with manny's prevent that. It really is a pretty nice holster. You just need to touch and try it. You will see what I mean.

Here are some more photos of the holster from the positioning angles. you can get any angle you want. Again, I cant say enough, 3 locking screws for each position. I like it!

Do the rollers mark the bottom of the dust cover? I like the concept but I would think that alot of dry-firing with a magnetic roller would mar thus area. If not, I'm in.

Does the gun stay nice and secure (without wobble)?
Is this really better than the race master?
I was sold on getting a race master till I read this post

Thank you very much

That looks pretty cool. I don't know if I'll ever go to a race holster like that, but I would have to give that one strong consideration if I do.

Seems like a poor design from the pics, but would have to see one in person, before I'd even consider replacing my DAA Race Holster with one.

Just going off the images here, seems like a ball joint would handle the rotational adjustments better and the design appears to be bulky, but again the pics are not of the best quality and seeing it in person might change my opinion.

I am not an expert by any means and my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt but 2 things concern me looking at the pictures.

The screw holding the hanger to the belt appear too long. Looks like you might scratch the hell out of your arm.

In my experience the more moving part you have on a piece of equipment the more things that can go wrong. If I bought one I would set it up the way I wanted it and loctite everything with the strongest loctite I could get.

These aren't new, just a new branding / import arrangement. AFAIK these are handmade in Finland and sold there as "SSI" or something. A few friends have them and they seem very well made.
