  • i just picked up...

    a serpa carbon fiber holster from a gun store/range here in town. it works great with the new XD.45. i also bought a factory magazine from CTD on sunday. i know how some of you feel about CTD but if they advertise something as factory, then they dont have much to do with the quality right? ill find out here in a day or two and let you know.

    in a vaguely related note, i think that CTD has a somewhat undeserved reputation. we all know that BHI has their stuff made in thailand or wherever but the reason it costs twice as much as something comparable is because of the logo. if another item is identical aside from the logo, is it still the same quality? i guess i could go with eagle or someother outfit, but i dont have the time or the money to have my equipment custom made.

    Actually, I am pretty sure the Blackhawk SERPA and other injection-molded stuff is made in the US. It's their sewn nylon products that are made for commercial sale that are made in RVN.

      i assumed that since their nylon was made in thaiwan the injection molded was too.

        Nope. There may be other issues with the SERPA design, but being RVN-made isn't one of them

        (reported ND's with certain firearms...Glocks mainly...and the button can get jammed up with pebbles if you go to ground with it)

          Just my $0.02, but CTD is the wal-mart of the tac-industry.

          Sometimes you run across an exceptional find, other times you literally get what you pay for.

            they do carry name brand products. things like blackhawk and trijicon but they do carry some crap. i will be the first to admit that. but like anything, if you are sure about what you are buying, then whats the harm? ive found blackhawk products there that were cheaper than MSRP!
