Rekkr Custom Kydex Holsters——“The Constitution”

"We The People"

"We The People"

A few weeks ago I was searching the Internet for new holster designs made from Kydex. As much as new designs I was looking for quality. Since the popularity of Kydex as a holster material the number of companies making Kydex holsters has skyrocketed and not always with the best quality.

When I found Rekkr Custom Kydex Holsters I found a darn good holster that didn’t break the bank. Rekkr charges $50 for standard holsters and $90 for a custom like the, self named, “Constitution” shown in this article.

I contacted the company and talked with them about the various holsters they sell. I found they use quality hardware to join the halves and use quality .08 Kydex in the body of the holsters. I was drawn to the design of the holster shown and ordered it. Besides it seemed appropriate since we are celebrating Independence Day this weekend!

Rekkr sells a basic number (nine) of solid color holsters as well as the Gadsden and the holster I received. Rekkr offers these holsters in OWB, IWB compact and paddle. They also sell mag pouches and knife sheaths. Custom options are also available if you contact them.

The fit and finish of these holsters is very good. The edges of the holster match perfectly. The edges are also smoothed and slightly rounded which keeps the user from being scratched by rough edges found on lesser holsters. The holes drilled for the hardware are even and uniform throughout. With the custom holsters the graphics are applied evenly and very uniform in color. The graphics are also crisp and clear. I ordered mine to fit a 1911 which in this case is my Remington R1 Enhanced. The fit was excellent with no play but not overly tight on the pistol. You can turn the holster upside down with the pistol in it and the pistol won’t fall out. The bottom line is these holsters are well made with quality materials and well worth the asking price.

    Not affiliated with them, but T. Rex Arms has some neat stuff too. Their Titan is pretty sick. That Rekkr looks cool, though.

  • Manny Fal

    They should make a holster with a bible on it, the gun coming out of the bible. Remember the apostles were armed.

    • Mike

      Manny,

      This is Mike from Rekkr Custom Kydex. You have a design, I can do it! I like the idea of a bible holster.

      • desert

        “If a man lacks a sword, let him sell his cloke and buy one”! excellent idea!

    • There ya go Manny the man himself will make one for you!

    I have one with Jesus waving a Texas flag while surfing Stalins corpse.

    • Search n’ Seizure

      That’s cool- Texas is one of the most fascist states in the Union so it’s kind of fitting

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        You sound dumb.

        • Yep signs up and starts garbage comments–gets banned—oh well sorry for the disruption guys!

        • wetcorps

          They pay them now? Who the hell has enough monney and pettiness to pay trolls?

          • Who knows?

            Soros, Clinton, DNC, Tides Foundation . . . shall I continue?

          • MrEllis

            Maybe some proof? There are plenty of people who just troll to troll. Conspiracies are just that.

      • You mean patriotic. I think maybe you entered the wrong website for that comment.

  • Search n’ Seizure

    I think it’s hilarious when a cop writes about the US Constitution- the same document they s#it all over on a daily basis during the course of their work day.

    • Ben

      Hey bro, it’s pretty poor form to say that when you have no idea how he handles his day to day police work. This blog has always shown a high respect for the U.S Constitution, so hold your tongue before you say something without proof, K? If you see him trampling others rights, by all means, publicize the info. We need fewer bad cops. But I doubt this gentleman is one of them. Have a safe 4th.

      • Search n’ Seizure

        We are so far away from the original ideals of the Constitution it’s not even funny, and who enforces the changes to it with nary a peep?

      • What I’d like to see is when someone like that guy (that hates police) makes a statement like that he takes my suggestion just one time and do a ride along with a larger PD. Most departments won’t let ride alongs do a tour in the really bad parts of town but if they did he just might change his opinion after 8 hours of seeing what that world looks like.

          As a former police officer from the 60’s, we had a saying…”if you don’t like cops, call a hippy”! The same thing would work today, just “call a liberal/dumocrat” lol

          • MrEllis

            I’m liberal and I still work in law enforcement, no longer do police work though. Blanket statement is stupid.

            Also, The Constitution allows people to say they hate the police. Who cares, you can’t please everyone…

    Just one person’s opinion, but if I ever had to shoot someone and there was a chance the jury would see the holster I drew from, I probably wouldn’t want it to say “don’t tread on me.” Do what you want, this is America, but I’m going to go out of my way not to look like I’m looking for trouble.

    • Mike

      Jacqueshacques, I can do a Don’t tread on me design.

  • MrEllis

    Seems a bit tacky, subjective things are just that though. I like the black ones, a fellow near us makes excellent custom ones for real cheap.
