If you’re going to carry a weapon, you will need a good holster. Not some one-size fits all or bargain bin holstaer. You’re going to want something to put the tool you will trust your life with into.
I’ve got a lot of holsters, and several for the Glock 19 for instance. But I came across this company – Werkz – and they make some of the best holsters I’ve ever used. They’re versatile, they’re comfortable, and they fit well.
Up for review today is their IWB holster for an Inforce APLc on a Glock 19.
Don’t worry, they make one for your gun too. At face value and first glance, the kydex is well molded. Thick but not too thick. I had to loosen the retention screw a bit – but that’s no big deal. The belt clip is rugged and sturdy as well. You can rock this bad boy Appendix IWB, as shown with my Shadow System Glock 19. Or you can cant it, and go with a 4 o’clock carry. But the versatility doesn’t stop there. I opted for a Tek-Lok mountin option as well, so I can wear this OWB at the 3 o’clock position and run it in a competition setting (See mounting options to the right).
As you can see, one holster affords you several mounting options – and it’s the same holster for LH or RH carry. Then you can even wear it outside the waistband. One holster, 5 carry options. Pretty cool.
What’s even cooler is that you can use a pistol with a threaded barrel or standard barrel in the holster (See picture). Many holsters don’t come with a barrel cutout like this, so you may have a Glock 19, but if you have a threaded barrel on it, you need to get an entirely new holster. Absolutely not the case here. And to put a cherry on top, this holster can accommodate pistols with optics, which I do run rather frequently.
Overall we really like Werkz work (does that sound right?). They make high quality holsters and mag carriers (see other reviews) at a reasonable costs, and they get them to you quick with free shipping on Amazon.
Pros, what we like: Great value, solid construction, and very very versatile. With one holster you get several mounting options, and can use a variety of different configurations for the same pistol.
Cons, what we don’t like: Really nitpicking, but when you carry this appendix, it prints a bit. That being said, they’re working on a claw to prevent that, which they sell with other models.
