Holster for P220 Carry SAS

Argh, I'm having a bitch of a time finding a holster specifically made for this gun. Can someone who actually ownes this pistol let me know which other Sig P series pistol holsters are best compatible with it. Ultimately, it's clear that the slude is a bit wider than the standard P220, and of course the SAS version lacks a rail. I'm thinking a no-rail P229, but don't want to get the wrong holster.

I use a P228/229 holster for my P220 SAS Carry with no problem.

check the galco site, select a 220, 226, 228 & 229, all without rail & you'll see the same 248 designation, no matter the holster style & there is a difference between rail & non-rail.

Yeah, they're good holsters, but they pull my pants down due to a lack of ass. I got one for the regular 220 but it was way too tight... had to do some serious stretching of th leather to get the Carry to fit in. Nevertheless, I was curious about compatibility with other Sig models rather than a holster style... that's a whole other mind numbingly tough decision.

can't understand why. the carry's a full size frame with a short slide, less to go in the holster.

they've got to be broken in, sig in waxpaper/waxxy side out, in holster to setup.

I use a High Noon Slide Guard with my P220 Stainless Elite Carry. I really like the pistol and the holster.

I have a P220 Compact SAS Gen 2 and had my IWB holster made for me by El Paso Saddlery. They've made a dozen holsters and accessories for me, from Walther PPKS IWB to S&W Schofield hogleg and I'm very satisfied with their products. Delivery time for this purchase was about two weeks.

Their web site is epsaddlery.com.

I doubt the OP is still looking for leather for his 220 Carry...
but in case others are coming to this thread...

I just got a new P220 Compact, and a new holster as well.
Elsewhere on the forum, I have been calling it a TT Gunleather holster, but actually it is an off-shoot of TT, called: Occidental Leather

The holsters are designed by Tim, who continues to make holsters for TT, but Occidental is able to keep more products in stock, due to a larger work force and possibly their production methods?

anyway, the holster I have is here: Stronghold Phoenix IWB Holster
the fit and finish are top notch.
I will report back on how it carries on the body soon...

I carry a full size 220r in a Nelson Leather IWB. A. E. Nelson Leather Co. ANd tell them in the comment section if its rail or not. I use the same holster for my Navy 226 and 228 ,220r with no problems.

wanted to report back on the Occidental Leather Phoenix Stronghold IWB that I have been breaking in....

Man, this thing is TIGHT!
I have done the "put the gun in a plastic bag, insert into holster, leave overnight" thing....but this thing is still majorly tight!

I have worn it for a total of about 5 total days, with a few more evening-only wears.....and have practiced drawing and reholstering from it....

I will let you all know if it ever loosens up!

Range visit this morning....
will report back on the holster after that!

I am hoping that inserting a hot gun into the holster will help to loosen it up some.....?

i wrap in wax paper, waxxy side out & let it set overnite. wax remains in the holster but won't hurt anything.

i don't think i'd put the hot sig in the new holster.

The manufacturer that I purchased my holsters from recommended putting the pistol in a zip lock bag and putting it in the holster High Noon Holsters). This worked for me and seems to speed the break in process. Good luck!

Just got back from the range....

I'll be posting a range report in the Sig pistols subforum.

Regarding the holster....I drew from holster at least 30 to 40 times, put the Sig back in the holster while smoking hot, dirty, and greased up!

By the end of my range time, I would say that the holster was somewhat more broken in, but that sucker feels like it will never break in fully....

I've done all the baggy overnight tricks, worn the thing for multiple days, and drawn from holster a couple hundred times...
I've owned multiple quality leather holsters...but none as tough as this one to break in?

On a brighter note, the 220 Compact RULES! (look for a range report, as soon as I clean 'er up!)
