View Full Version : Crossbreed - First Experience

For those of you considering a CBST, consider yourselves in good hands.

My first experience was the following:

-Receive the holster within a few weeks.
-Try it on to get the best fit.
-Realize my 27 is riding a bit high and need to lower the holster.
-Remove retention screws and attempt to put together the retention assemblies one hole up on the leather backing.
-Have difficulty properly seating the back retention washer.
-To make a long story short, I sustain minor injuries. :embarassed:

After nearly stripping the bolt heads trying to properly seat the back washers, I send an email to Crossbreed for help.

I sent the email this morning at 8:23am.

I get a reply at 9:02am. :)

As I have no experience with working with leather, I am advised in their email response to lay a damp wash cloth on the back of the holster to moisten / soften up the leather prior to retention assembly.

Plus, they're sending out a full set of mounting hardware to replace the damaged screws, etc.. as a result of my previous assembly attempt.

This level of customer service can not be kept to myself. It must be shared. And so..this post.

Thanks Crossbreed. My faith hath been restored.

Have a great day!

I have a couple CB holsters. I've never needed customer support but have no doubt I would be in great hands. I've never read a negative thing about them.

Glad your happy, Crossbreed has always taken care of me and their holster is fantastic. I know there are many other good holster makers of the kydex/leather combo but it would be hard to beat their customer service.

Crossbreed is the only holsters I'll buy now. I've been through a lot of different holsters. Crossbreed has been the best.

I bought one CBST holster and although it's nice, I'm going with Old Faithful holster from now on. Easy to put together for almost half of what a CBST costs plus you can just change out shells instead of buying a new holster.

Not knocking CBST holster but if you want another, I'd try these guys first.

they are ok. I got mine(Ruger sr9c) because they were one of the very few out there making them for that model early on. Its a comfortable and very adjustable holster. That said...I'd still take a RM Lowrider kydex over it. The one I had for my glock 23 was just as comfortable and concealable. And to boot they FINALLY make it for the sr9 c now also.....but back to the CBST..very nice holster and I'd consider another..but I'd consider a RM Lowrider first :-)

Be sure to check their seconds website for good deals. After buying 2 holsters and liking them, I found and have since bought 3 more at great prices!
