Holster sources for FsN

Post by Rapier1772 » 12 Jan 2011, 00:41

When contacting any of the businesses below, make sure you designate which model you have. If you find a company that makes the MkII, please let us know so that we can note it.
The MkII may not fit in the same holsters as the original USG!
The MkII is also new enough that many companies may not have a template to build on.
These sources are in regards to the FN FiveseveN, not all guns. Many of the manufactures listed here also have mag pouches, those have an asterisk(*) next to them (think I got them all). All of these were found on the forum (or members have added them since the thread was created) so if you have questions please use the search function & see if the question was answered in the other thread.

Also: please keep this a resource thread for places that make holsters for the FsN. Post review type comments (praises/bashing/modifying of holster/types/features) in another thread, hopefully a review type thread. If there isn't one, consider that a reason to make one :thumb: For tips, tricks & other comments, please use this thread -> viewtopic.php?f=15&t=11963

If you have a new source then yes, please post it here so we can update the list.

Great job!

I updated the "Other Resources" thread to point here regarding holsters.

Man thanks alot !! After almost a year and a half, I still haven't bought a decent holster for my Five-Seven, but I just found a guy here in Nashville when I was checking out our local firearm selling/buying website the other day. This guy has some GREAT looking holsters. I'm going to drop my Five-Seven off in a couple weeks because he has never done one before, but after that he shouldn't need your Five-Seven I wouldn't think. He uses elephant, stingray, and one or two others, and man they really caught my eye. He even does two-tones with black elephant hide and tan leather....plain beautiful. I think I am going to get ann all black one in the elephant or stingray-not sure which one yet. Here is the website: http://www.BiancheriUSA.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; . Very nice looking holsters.

Actually did some shopping today at a local store and found a serpa blackhawk holster. Said it would fit the FN 57 USG and it wouldn't fit my FN 57... Because my 57 has the adjustable sights, the front blade is a little larger than the fixed sight 57s. It causes major friction in the top of the holster and won't fit. Thus I haven't found anything yet on blackhawks website. Still researching. Will post what I find because I want a serpa blackhawk style.

That's very odd. Many of us use the Serpa and it works fine. The Serpa isn't exclusive to the fixed sights version, don't be confused by the picture above. Mine had adjustable sights on it and it worked fine. It should work fine with yours. The Serpa has been out for quite a long time, from before the fixed sights were even in existence.

It is odd. In fact the salesman took the FN 57 and we tried out different holsters. No dice. Might have tried 6-8 different serpa holsters. They had to use the display one (which was exactly like mine). The closest one they had the salesman had to shove it in scrapping the top the holster. I think he might have marred the front blade a little. Too bad and I told him it should have just slide in nicely.

Hmm my serpa fits my FSN just fine. I have one of the Garrett holsters (IWB) coming for the FNP-45. I'd like to get a CBST for it to compare, but am limited on funds. Will let you guys know how the GI holster is.

Maybe Blackhawk changed their design? Mine fits fine w/adjustable sights :?:

If you are asking for pics of the Minotaur, pics and reviews are here viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8419&start=20" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. There are pics & reviews of the crossbreed there as well. For the Serpa, viewtopic.php?f=15&t=10678" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


On that note - instead of the random comments here & there about various holsters, it would probably be helpful to actually post a review, complete with pics, for the specific holsters. If y'all have time - get busy! :D

Post a pic of the side profile of your FsN. Also, measure the length and hight of the blade at the apex.

Found a vid. More towards the end of the vid you can see more. The front sight is larger in that vid and the grove for the front blade.

Measured the blade for mine is 3/8 inches tall.

His FsN looks like an adj sights version. If the front sight is larger in the vid and fits the Serpa, then yours should fit...no?

I just watched 2 seconds of the video.

Called black hawk, looked at my invoice, FN 57 USG. Should work, but mentioned adjustable sights and balckhawk mentioned that might be an issue. Still scratching my head and also occured to me the wrong holster might have been in the package. The packages were easily opened and people messing with them might have been fiddling around and put the wrong holster in.

Anyone with a FN 57 USG adjustable sights with blackhawk serpa. Pics please. I am stumped at this point.

To my knowledge, the USG has the adjustable sites unless specified as 'fixed site'.

Did another trip to store. Actually found a model number online and looked at thier selection. Box is marked for ALL different models so I have been misled. So far I found that blackhawk serpa 410518BK-R is what I am looking for. Online might be my only option as our gun is special :) Calling around the area, but so far bust.

remember they're cheaper from retailers than direct from Blackhawk
