Holsters for Hicapa 5.1's

Are there currently any Serpa or Safariland holsters available for the Hicapa 5.1 specifically for or can be used for the Hicapa?

I switched to a Serpa...but there's a bit of work to do.
- you need a rounded trigger guard. Either switch to a TanioKoba or similar tactical grip (which are very nice)...or if you're cheap and adventurous like me, just round off the trigger guard and sand it smooth. My first attempt isn't perfect, but it's decent. It's a lot of filing...so if you're brave, mark out the profile, trim with a saw/sander/dremel. You're not going for thin...just the same thickness of the bottom of the trigger guard, all the way around until it tapers up at the frame.
- you need to taper/file/chamfer some of the opening area around the top of the holster. Especially where the mag release button is. Nothing serious and nothing a good file can't do. Test fit, note contact, file, repeat. Took me 10min and I was going really slow.

It'll be a little tight (or at least mine was) at first, but after a bit it's slick as butter.

Thanks for the tips! I'm not the best with tools so perhaps I'll pick up the TanioKoba grips from ILLusion. I think he has some. What kind of serpa mold did you switch to? M9 or 1911?

You need 1911. Hicapa is a 1911 style, actually called a 2011.

M9 would not fit at all.

LOL...yeah 1911.

The 1911 grip is narrower than the Hicapa...that's why you need to file the holster a bit. You'll see it contacting. Doesn't take much. Use a good mill file, not some dinky needle file.
