Pistol rig gear for TPX
 
Found this the other day, and couldn't resist purchasing one for that price to replace my current TPX setup. Anyone familiar with it?

Is there any reason why I should waste $35+ a piece on a MOLLE TPX holster when this exists for $10?

Is there anyone that still sells these?

My guess is that if you're looking at real steel holsters, they're not going to be big enough for a TPX.

if it fits - great - it might not

mass produced generic real steel holsters are generally a bit slim for paintball markers to fit in - I have no experience with that specific one you linked (at least that I can recall) but you certainly will need to check it when you get it for fit, feel, and quality.

why pay $35 - well few reasons
as mentioned before - fit, feel, quality are important
if it was made by a custom tailor - labor costs are higher, material costs may be based on quality of material.
Honestly in the grand scheme of things - $35 for a GOOD holster is not much to pay at all - some of my real steel reside in custom leather that cost me closer to $85 to $135 for those rigs and to me it was worth every cent.

If your looking for a nice snug holster for a tpx at a decent price...

Id suggest this
Black Tornado Tactical Leg Holster Right Handed | eBay

I ordered two (comes with free shipping) for my Twin T8.1s.. you adjust em the way you want and they are sturdy..

Looks good. Hope it fits. I'm spending the extra cash on a MOLLE holster for my new TPX because I want it to sit a certain way. WTFPB is taking care of that for me. It'll cost a pretty penny but I don't care to pay for exactly what I want.

Stich, what holster did you go with? I would like to see your rig!

rofl I would have to dig a bit since my 2 rigs I have not used in awhile since I dont work at a gunstore anymore lol

one was a shoulder rig for my .45 colt - molded leather with 2 mag holder on the opposite side. was a bianchi rig cant remember the modelname tho

Other one was combo - a race rig belt with 8 mag mounts and both a race fast draw hip and a bianchi pancake that was retro-fitted to work with it (2 snaps and straps) that was the pricier one =P

much <3 for Bianchi leather tho =)

get a tpx holster from WTFpb.com

honestly, I ditched my vest setup for a belt, without a holster. you might find it more or less comfortable, it depends on your style

Crimson D - Yup! Mine's being made. Had to ask for a special option because I tend to take falls like a YouTube fail compilation video when playing. Last time I was able to smash all my tubes and the paint inside them. I want to make sure the marker is more or less together after one of those.

I'm working with a DYE tactical rig now mixing my stock class and pistol. So far WTFPB has been very nice and let me change a few things on their stock class shingles so it will fit my rig.

Stitch - We wanna see anyway! Time is of no consequence...

What paint do you guys use in the Tpx?
