  1. Justin

    For tactical warbelt type holsters, it doesn’t get any better. I’ve run everything under the sun and nothing else comes close.

  2. Todd

    I just received my product and it’s quality initially would be the same as my bravo concealment holster. My only criticisms initially are two: 1 the 1911 holster cannot be holstered unless the safety is on. At least with extended safety, I’m probably going to replace it with a smaller one, but I still don’t think it will holster with a standard safety. 2 the qls forks are mounted high on the holster, so It rides a little low.

    Second is just preference, but I would say manual safty holsters should be able to be holstered with the safety off. I might be over thinking it, but I can imagine a set of circumstances where I want to holster my 1911 with an empty chamber/mag and not have to rack the slide to holster.

    • Alex Costa

      Thanks again for your purchase. Cut your sweat guard down past the safety and sand with 1000 grit. Buy a Safariland QLS Female 22 mount, don’t mount on a midride? Just two suggestions. It all matters what QLS female side you are attaching it to. This would be a first for safety criticism with 1911’s.

    I have just received my holster that I ordered May 9, 2019, and I have a couple things to say; my Glock 21 fits nicely in the holster and it has a fairly smooth draw, but the tension screw on my TLR-1 is scraping against the inside cutting into the material. The next thing I have to say isn’t about the holster, but the customer service and the website. When I was making the order, I selected rush shipping because I wanted it for a range day, but the website re-selected the option without my knowing. It selected no rush 2-4 week shipping. By the time I realized, it was already the day before the range day, and I was not happy. Make sure you select the correct shipping before ordering. Now for my last thing to say. Make sure to check your email constantly, I received the order completion email and the delivered email at the time, after I received the package. 4 out of 5 stars, for good quality product, but for iffy customer service.

    • Alex Costa

      Thanks for your review. Rush ordering option says “Rush ordering is temporarily unavailable” in 2 locations of the description of shipping and no rush drop down is an option. It has been in this configuration for 3 months. The website did not automatically change it on you. I was unavailable from the get go. Sorry for the confusion..

      Some features on lights are used as retention points. For this configuration, the rail screw on the TLR1 is a partial retention point. So there will be some break in will occur: i.e. shavings. Solution to this to speed it up, is to apply some gun lube on the hot spots in the holster. It smooths out pretty quick.

      I verified your emails. Your completion email was sent the same day it shipped and is confirmed on our back end that was received without being bounced back. You may have an issue with your browser or cache needs to be cleared. Spam filter may have caught it, but accepted both emails, completion and delivery because it accepted the delivery email.

    Perfect fit and good retention. I will be ordering a second for my other pistol soon.

  5. Kelcie (verified owner)

    Just got my OWB holster for my VP9SK with TRL-7. Fits snug and love the minimal size of the holster! Will definitely be ordering another in the near future!

  6. Thomas Olean (verified owner)

    Solid holster. Fast shipping. I will be ordering more in the future. The QLS option is very convenient.

  7. Tom (verified owner)

    Real good holster. Clamps more on the x300 than the gun, so you get less holster wear. 👌 Some of the best options available for customization. Will be buying more.

  8. Sean De La Rosa (verified owner)

    Nice solid construction yet light weight. I had my concerns that it seemed lighter and thinner than other kydex holsters I was accustomed to but it seems to hold retention well and be durable. I have already ordered another holster for the same pistol for edc use and look forward to continue purchasing more in the future

  9. Caleb (verified owner)

    This is a very well built holster. Fit and retention were perfect. Build time and shipping were excellent.

  10. David (verified owner)

    Excellent holster. Fit and finish are outstanding. Firearm and all accessories fit snug and hold tight. The addition of the QLS fork is an added benefit. I’ve already ordered another for a different pistol.

  11. Charlie Carlisle Jr. (verified owner)

    Excellent holster, arrived exactly as ordered and quicker than expected! Craftsmanship and quality! Ordered a second (iwb) immediately after opening.

  12. drew (verified owner)

    This was my 2nd holster from ANR. really beautiful work. Well thought out design. Perfect fit, and even allows me to work the decocker and mag release while holstered. WELL DONE.

  13. Jason Hayes (verified owner)

    Was in need of a quality holster for an FN 5.7. Am very pleased with ANRs holster. Quality and detail are spot on! Retention and adjustability are great. Will purchase from them again!

  14. Alden (verified owner)

    Great fit and retention and the QLS fork being included is very handy. Highly recommended.

  15. Josh (verified owner)

    Holster is great – love the fact it includes the QLS Fork as well. ANR also had the holster done much sooner than expected! Thanks guys!

  16. Mark Paladino (verified owner)

    Received my holster and its everything people say it is. Great! Worth the wait! The fit, finish and lead time were all what was expected.
    The only disappointment is that the holster switches the safety off when I holster. There’s no mention of this on the website.
    If its for a gun with no safety option, this would be fine but for one with an optional safety, this should not happen.

    • Alex Costa

      Have you emailed customer service? Also, most folks put notes in the customer comments section during checkout about things like safeties. We do not have a safety model designation listed. A standard M&P does not have a safety, so it’s not standard tooling. If you reach out to CS, they can cut the guard below the safety.

  17. Thomas (verified owner)

    Outstanding holster, arrived exactly as ordered with the Safariland QLS Fork. The fit and finish are second to none, no rough edges or burrs. Retention and adjustability are terrific. This was my first purchase from ANR but it won’t be my last.

  19. Adam Scepaniak (verified owner)

    Very crisp tight fit with the holster to my weapon. Very pleased with it!

  20. Steve (verified owner)

    Great design. Anr catered to my suppressor height sights and threaded barrel. It was well worth the lead time and money.

  21. Niko (verified owner)

    Absolutely love my holster. This was my first dive into a quick detach/modular setup-up and I’m very happy I went with the QLS. The holster itself is amazingly well made and fits like a glove for my MK25. This is my second holster platform for AnRD and, again, I love it.

  22. Tj (verified owner)

    Very well done, easy to decipher what I wanted and needed on the website. Lead time was as accurate as can be and the holster itself is an excellent item!

  23. Cole (verified owner)

    Received my Holster the other day for my Beretta M92X with TLR-1 Light, in the FDE Carbon Fiber.

    Boy am I impressed with this holster. From older reviews, it sounded as though there was some QA things about the holsters (warped, not cut properly etc), but can hopefully say that is of the past as there were no imperfections, large or small to be found on mine, nor on either of the 2 holsters my brothers ordered.

    Will be coming here for future holster needs, and will be recommending AnR design to anyone who is looking for an affordable, customizable holster to fit their unique carry needs.

  24. Jimmy Girvan (verified owner)

    Perfect fit for my G45 with the TLR7 light could not be happier!!!! Super fast custom built holster at a GREAT price that was right the first time. I will be ordering another in the very near future.

  25. Nigel (verified owner)

    Ordered this holster for my CZ P 10C as an upgrade from my serpa ( I know, I know 🤦🏽‍♂️) but can’t express enough how much it has improved my Kit ergonomics. I’m ruining the Safariland QRL system on multiple belts and this holster snaps in effortlessly. The retention is amazing for a kydex holster. Cut and finish were exquisite. If you’re even thinking about buying one just go ahead and add it to cart! You won’t regret it.

  26. Jackson Smythe (verified owner)

    Great holsters for my glock 17 and another for my 21, both Trijicon rmr, surefire 300u, and threaded barrel. Solid retention. No issues. Very secure and comfortable.

  27. Yuecheng Qin (verified owner)

    Good quality holster, Only Problem is that I wish it had more retention on the gun, I bought an OWB and IWB, both are good holsters but with almost no retention at all on the gun itself, tried adjusting it and tighten down screws but still, it barely holds it in.

    • Alex Costa

      Have you reached out to customer service with your issue? They can generally find a solution.

  28. Lucien (verified owner)

    Very impressive and sturdy OWB. Came out better than i expected. I would purchase another when the time comes. I would recommend to any one looking for an OWB that will last.

  29. Robert Warren (verified owner)

    ANR stepped up when the other holster builders balked… they said yes to every specification I requested. Optic Cut, Suppressor Height Sights, Tactical Light, Threaded Barrel, QLS fork and made for a Poly 80 full size (G-17) frame. Couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Fit is excellent, it’s snug without maxing the tension screws. Attention to detail was evident… smooth rounded edges and perfect contour in all the right places. Delivery was as promised and I received exactly what I ordered. Good Job !

  30. jspiels9 (verified owner)

    Received holster for P320 Compact/Xcarry with Olight PL-mini2. fit and finish were nice. Retention is great and adjustable, with the weapon clicking into place securely.
    Shipping took a little bit longer than anticipated. Expect to be on the back end of the estimated 2-4 week time-frame. My order was placed on July 9. An update email was sent on August 14 with a tracking number, and holster was received on August 20. While frustrating in this day-and-age of same-day delivery options that are available from certain websites, I can understand the time it takes to provide a quality product, especially with the rush in the gun industry. That being said – my only complaint about the product pertains to the covering over the trigger guard extending out to interfere with the draw of the weapon. After several repetitions of drawing and re-holstering, I had a small nick on the knuckle of my middle finger where I grip the weapon. I’m sure a dremel or some sandpaper can fix this easily, but for something I waited 6 weeks for, I would have expected this to have been fixed before it left their warehouse.

  31. Richard Thomas (verified owner)

    I got this as an alternative to my Safariland, for times when I don’t need all the extra retention. I carry enough stuff as it is and this holster cuts down on weight and bulk. I carry a CZ SP-01 with streamlight. The holster works well with the weight and retention is really good. I was nervous that it might fall out with some “activities” but this has not been the case. Just buy one.

  32. First Time Gun Owner (verified owner)

    Seems like a good holster.. I purchased this for my pistol. Then I changed my sight. So this won’t work. Kept it because it will fit my son’s gun. He has one already. Can’t hurt to have a spare.

  33. Nick (verified owner)

    Very high quality holster for a hard to find setup. I had a hard time finding a holster for a P-10F that supported an optic and the older Inforce APL. ANR had the correct configurations, delivered on time, and upon receipt this is a high quality product. I would use them again.

  34. Jason crawford (verified owner)

    I ordered two holsters for my fnx and am very happy with them both i did mess up and order both with the qls fork meaning to get one with a belt loop but that was me not paying attention but all and all both holsters are very well made and have great retention will definitely come back for my next holsters

  35. Rick (verified owner)

    Great product. I ordered the lightbearing outside the waist with the QLS fork for my FN 509 Tactical with Streamlight TLR 1. This is my second order I also have the Outside the Waistband belt holster and spare mag holder for the same pistol. Both are in Kryptek highlander. Excellent fit. Will order again.

  36. Ronnie Rogers (verified owner)

    I recently ordered this holster for my CZ75 SP-01 tactical. I went with ANR Design for a couple of reasons, one being it just seems to be a cool quality product, and two, they were basically the only ones offering a good holster option for my pistol. I ordered during the pandemic clusterfuck so I was fully prepared to wait an exorbitant amount of time for my holster. Upon ordering the lead time was quoted at 3-5 weeks. Again, understandable considering the state of the world. Much to my surprise it only took about two weeks for the custom holster to be made and ship. Once I had it in hand it was clear that I made the right choice. Looks great and fits my pistol perfectly. Thanks for the great product, looking forward to future purchases.

  37. George Eric Will (verified owner)

    Super happy with your work and it’s just as I ordered and expected- thank you.

  38. Cody Wistrom (verified owner)

    Purchased one for a G19/X300 with the vastus strap and hung it off a qls. Works well into my hunting gear as a backup sidearm. When paired with the vastus system the holster and firearm are virtually anchored into position on your thigh without any chaffing. Picked up a G17 recently and that works just as well in the same holster, so I don’t see myself changing the setup anytime soon.

  39. Brett Potter (verified owner)

    So glad I found anr. I was looking everywhere for a holster for my 1911 select and wasn’t having much luck. I am incredibly happy with my purchase. Received a holster of top notch quality that exceeded my expectations. And on top of that it was delivered in under the agreed lead time. I will definitely be a returning customer.

  40. joseph kuzawski (verified owner)

    its tough finding a 509 mid with rmr and a light In a holster. you guys came through. great job. fits perfectly.

  41. Matthew Chapman (verified owner)

    Height quality perfection at its finest. I’ll be honest I was a little worried about spend this much money on a holster but I’m so glad I did. Well worth what they cost. Craftsmanship and quality of materials are top notch. I will definitely be ordering again. Will definitely promote this holster and company. A+++

  42. Tom M. (verified owner)

    A simple, yet reliable holster that is custom-fitted to my firearm/light/optic combination with QLS attachment for flexibility in sidearm choice (in this case, a FNX 45 Tactical, TLR1, Vortex Viper). I have also gone with T-Rex Arms holsters of a similar variety (QLS OTW for Glock, Sig, Walther etc) and have found them to be a stiffer build quality, but with far less customization for unique handguns. I utilize each of them on a frequent basis for training and duty use depending on mission requirements and have found neither the T-Rex holsters nor the ANR to have flaws in design or manufacturing over the last 3 years. A fantastic product which I will definitely purchase again after acquiring more duty handguns with unique accessories.

  43. Max G (verified owner)

    I had ANR make 2 holsters for my CZP01, both an AIWB one with a Olight Mini pl 2 and an OWB/QLS Fork with a Surefire x300u.
    Craftsmanship on both is incredible. Positive clicks on both when holstering as well. You won’t find anything better than ANR.

  44. Z (verified owner)

    My order shipped in half the time — i.e., twice as fast — as promised.

    The holster itself is one of the best, if not the best, that I’ve ever purchased. Craftsmanship is perfect. Fit is perfect. Feels very durable. Worth what I paid and more.

  45. John B. (verified owner)

    I purchased this holster for an FN 509M with a light. My weapon fit perfectly! High Quality for a Nice Price! Thanks ANR!

  46. judson donato james (verified owner)

    Solid holster, purchased for a beretta 92 with a surefire weapons light. They finished it quick and it arrived within a timely manner. the construction is solid. I would order again from ANR if the holster doesn’t require level 2 or more retention.

  47. Kason Windham (verified owner)

    Holster is a 10/10 , ordered for my P226 legion with SF X300 B and it fits and retains perfect. I ordered with hopes that this holster would also fit my P227 with the same WML and low and behold it does fit!

    The shipping, every time I have ordered anything from ANR (ie holster with a estimated shape date of 2/4 weeks) it has shipped within a week, they’ve gotten stuff to me faster than Biden can get down stairs!

    A special shout out to Alex for answering a late night question about it before I ordered!

  48. Ike (verified owner)

    Amazing quality product. This is my third ANR Design holster, looking forward to many more. Purchased for my Glcok 19 Gen 5 with Olight PL-Mini. Recently picked up a CZ P10C and while a little snug fits this holster almost flawlessly.

  49. Bowman French (verified owner)

    Required very minor fitting for my hand when I draw, but this holster is amazing. It holds my P80 perfectly and looks great doing it. The inclusion of the QLS Fork is such a good deal with this. 100/10, I recommend ANR to all of my friends looking for new holsters.

  50. William Chan (verified owner)

    I have bought several of these holsters to accommodate my various handguns and they all worked wonderfully well. Each holster was expertly crafted and fit perfectly with little or no adjustments.

    I expect a lot from my all my gear and I run my holsters hard whenever I am out on the field. In fact, my ANR holsters had never once disappointed me when I need it to perform. And when one of my holsters broke (after 5 years of hard usage) during a training exercise, ANR replaced it at no additional cost (thanks to my lifetime warranty).

    At the end of the day, you can never go wrong with a holster from ANR and they are money well spent.

  51. Mike (verified owner)

    ANR holsters are some of the best quality holsters on the market. This is my third ANR holster, my 2nd with the QLS fork. I have to say the fit and finish are superb, the materials used are top notch, the fitment for the TLR-1 is perfect, the thickness of the Kydex is awesome, just overall a great holster. The ANR team is great to work with and shipped my holster quickly and efficiently. I will always recommend ANR to colleagues, they continue to surpass my expectations.

  52. Martin (verified owner)

    Got one in multicam tropic for the 43x mos with tlr 7 sub. Love this holster and everything about it. Good company

  53. Randy (verified owner)

    Received my OWB holster for a 365xl with red dot and trl 6 light. The quality, fitment and retention could not be better. Will be ordering another on for a XMS 3.3 with light and red dot.

  54. Ben (verified owner)

    Light bearing fit is just right, easy draw with great retention. Looks and feels great!

  55. Ian (verified owner)

    Everything ended up perfect for my CZ P10C equipped with a holosun and streamlight tlr8. When I first got it I thought, oh man, it’s so tight there might be something wrong! Snapped it to my belt via the qls fork system and did a couple of draws and it was actually absolutely perfect. Slapped some vibration goo on the retention screw to hold that retention. The retention is absolutely smooth and super secure. Ran it through its paces running drills in the shittiest of weather, slipped in the mud, prone and rolling around, in and out of the vehicle etc. Never came out, never actuated the mag release (the kydex is dummy thicc). Definitely my new favorite holster. Will be back for an IWB for the same kit and another for a p10S. Love yall for what you do. Can’t think of anything I’d gripe about it other than I need more holster by ANR. Dope sticker too that got slapped on the toolbox, always love getting stickers with my stuff. Thanks again ANR!

    This is the first somewhat expensive holster I’ve got usually I’ll get the eBay special made in a garage, cause to me kydex is kydex as long as the mold is accurate and they suction the air out. I was wrong lol the fit and finish on this is amazing retention is excellent. There is definitely levels to this and yeah it’s worth the extra money to get a upper tier holster very happy with it.
    ANR design make a sidecar style holster for appendix carry that’s what’s hot and I was very surprised you didn’t have one or I would of ordered two holsters.

    Just bought this holster for my Q5 match poly frame. It’s my 4th ANR holster and carry’s the same quality I’ve come to expect from this company. I love the shit out of this holster along with the other 3 I regularly use. Thanks guys. I’m especially appreciative of the od green qls fork. It matches up much better with the multicam on the holster and the belt I got it for than the black would have. Just a detail I didn’t think of prior to receiving it.

    • Alex Costa

      Thanks Chad!

  59. Brandon (verified owner)

    Don’t usually do reviews, but this is the nicest holster I’ve ever ordered. Ordered this one for an FNX45 tactical. Quality is great, and overall seems very well built. Retention is solid, and the included QLS fork was green to match my multi cam holster. Will be using ANR for the rest of my holster needs from here on out.

    • Alex Costa

      Brandon, thank you so much for the kind words!!!

  60. Yang (verified owner)

    Long wait but pretty decent holster. Only con is that after the first 10 draws from the holster, I noticed it definitely scratches the finish on the slide.

    • Alex Costa

      It’s probably just KYDEX plastic residue. KYDEX is not harder than your factory nitride. Cerakote is a terrible coating as well. Use some gun solvent and it should come off. Thanks for the review Yang

  61. Justin (verified owner)

    I have several ANR holsters and I love them all. Like always they are fantastic on the fitment and the color always looks amazing. I have a holster addiction, and I believe ANR is finally my last holster company I ever need to buy

    So I’ve had this for about two weeks now and I’m love the qls set up and how it sits. Ride hight is perfect for me. Now on to my only complaint which is a big one for some reason while I’m sitting ie like driving the mag release gets pushed so I have to make sure that I check it when ever I get out of my car definitely would like to see this fix cause other than that I love the product

    • Alex Costa

      That is a manufacturing defect and we can fix it. Reach out to customer service via contact page and they will RMA it and turn it around fast!

    Haven’t taken it onto the range yet (probably next week), but initial impressions are that it fits like a glove and seems to have good build quality. Very satisfied so far.

    Would probably order another one for my SP-01 if you can make one that goes with the Olight Baldr Mini.

      Thanks Dan!

    HK45, Well made holster. The adjustment was 100% right out of the package. Finish is great, you can tell they take their time and do it right. Wait time was not bad at all. The order status bar is golden. I’m already recommending and showing off this holster. Thanks Ken

    Just got 2 of the holsers I ordered, one for my P10c and the other for my P07, and they are all around good holsters you’d expect from ANR Design, although this is my second of the same kind of holster for the P10 (changed lights, so new holster) and this new one the kydex was a little too close to my threaded barrel, I had to file the holster so my P10 wouldn’t get caught up on the thread protector, other wise I had to take the holster off and spread it open to get the P10 out. Other than that its good

    • Alex Costa

      Thanks Devlin!
