I recently got a crossbreed supertuck for my g26. I got it at a local shop, so score 1 for me. Unfortunately, it's the basic one. No combat cut and I can't get a firm grip on my glock before I draw.
Has anybody ever customized the holster (cut) to allow them to get a full grip on the gun?
Pic's are welcome!

Yep, about half the people on here with one. Try the search function for further details.

I did try searching. Both "custom crossbreed holster" and simply "crossbreed holster". Didn't come up with anything that popped out as what I would be looking for.

30 seconds of searching the term "crossbreed combat cut" produced this link:

It would make sense that I didn't come up with the same results as you. seeing how we had different search terms. go figure.

Cut all mine around my gun to fit better. Here's a good pic of a cut one I mounted in my truck...

Do they all get that ugly over time?

I don't have a crossbreed, but I customized my Kholster (similar design) with a combat style cut. I used my sharpest knife and "sawed" it along the lines I drew. Works great and is extremely comfortable!

Some do. Depends on how it's used.

It's easy to do. Rule of thumb is to decide how you want the shape of the cut to be and use a marker on the back of the leather to mark where you want the cuts to be so you can see it easily. I trimmed up a piece of cardboard for how I wanted the shape to be then traced it to the back of my holster before starting the cut. I need to modify my newest Supertuck to a combat cut.

Choose what you are going to cut it with wisely. Razor blades can be finicky with the Crossbreed's leather and may not allow cutting in curves as easily as leather tools will. A good pair of EMT shears might even do the trick.

I think I have a pair I can loan you if you need them. If they break I can always replace them, but they do cut through pennies so it shouldn't be a problem.


BTW, if you have the RTF, RTF2, or Gen 4 you need to be cautious with a combat cut. The frame texture can easily rough up your skin and tear up clothing if you're not careful. My RTF 17 got me recently when I demo'd a Supertuck for a student.

I used a razor blade I had sitting in my tool box. Corners were a bit tricky, but I got it done and am happy with the way It came out. Yea I noticed right away that I needed some kind of undershirt. It was really rough on my skin. I went to walmart and got some cheap undershirts.
