- it is as described on the website Review by Wilson Verified Purchase
The holster works for a large frame .40 S&W and .45 1911 or .45XDM.
The retention strap is not ideal, when open to draw the weapon the back side falls straight down making it impossible to re-snap the strap with one hand and without looking down.
It would have been nice if it could hold a light mounted pistol, but the description did not say it would.

- Average holster Review by Duce
- 2 Stars Review by LMP
Also, as another reviewer has stated, the thumb break strap falls off. On one end it is retained to the holster by velcro and holds strong. However on the other end it is only attached to the holster by a snap, which doesn't retain tightly.
I would return it, but I'd spend half the cost of the holster in shipping fees. (Posted on 4/5/2018)
- Great MOLLE holster Review by TLL

- Better for Bigger Review by Corpsie Verified Purchase
The rest of the holster and adjustability are great. The material is good, the stitching is good and the hook & loop is good.
The 3 star rating is because, overall, it's about average, bulkier than necessary and that weak snap knocks it down.
