Pro TLE/RL II Holster




Just purchased a Pro TLE/RL II, saved a little cash with a trade in so looking for a holster to fit the rail and future light. Any recommendations for this? Here is a pic of the growing family; Pro CDP II, Classic Custom Royal and the new TL/RL II.

Moving to Kydex and Leather. I have the 5" version, but no holster. I'll make my own next time I order Kydex.

Sorry about the location. Was going to post the pic then thought about asking for help finding holster. Haven't seen much searching the net.

I don't know what your intention is, but I think you need one holster for the pistol without the light and another holster for the pistol with the light attached. The holster will typically provide some retention around the the light and if you wear the pistol without the light in a light compatible holster, it will not fit properly.

There are very few leather makers that accommodate light mounted pistols, but nearly all will make holsters for a railed Kimber Pro. You may want to look at our OWB or IWB picture threads for some ideas.

Most kydex makers will also cover the railed Kimber Pro, but here are a couple that I think do make light compatible holsters for the Kimber Pro.

Garrett Industries

While the Raven can be worn OWB or IWB just by switching attachments, I can't imagine using the holster as a light compatible IWB holster. My Raven is my primary IWB holster, and while it is quite thin, a model with a light attached would be a lot of kydex to stick in your pants.

Multiple Holsters

jtq I think you are right. Thinking about it this morning I can never see carrying with the light. Adding the light would be a good night stand option though. Thanks for the links to the other thread. I have a little more searching on the web to do now.
