Blade-Tech FYI

For probably nearly 10 years I’ve been wearing a Blade-Tech Combo Magazine Pouch with the Tek-Lok belt attachment. Even if I’m not carrying a spare magazine for my STI Eagle I’m carrying my Sure-Fire flashlight. I always have it with me. On airplanes, in secure government installations, everywhere I’m wearing clothes I have it with me.

A few years ago I tipped over the ATV at Boomershoot and cracked the mag pouch (and did some pretty serious damage to my leg too). The crack gradually got worse and now it no longer reliably retains the magazine. I need a new one.

I went to the Blade-Tech website and tried to order one but the only STI option was for the STI LS (a single stack 1911 chambered in 9×19). I called Blade-Tech to find out if I could get one to accommodate a spare magazine for my double stack STI. The answer was a very friendly, “Yes! We can do that.” The lead time is about six weeks but I now have a replacement on order.

The bottom line is that just because you don’t see something on their website it doesn’t mean they can’t or won’t make one for you.

  2. I got a custom order years ago for a holster for my 642 to go hiking with.

    Love it – easy to snap on and off my belt and holds the gun snugly on the trail.

  3. Several years ago I had a similar episode with Blade-Tech. They are a great company.

  4. I have many blade-tech products, I had a an sp101 in a blade tech on my hip the last time someone hit me on my motorcycle. Split the wood grips, lost my shoes, holster retained the gun and has two large scars down the front of it now but still works great.
    good people, good products
