SLR rail

Question for the guys using a SLR rail from MARS on thier 1911s.     Are you having to use a custom holster when not using the light, or can you still get away with most government size holsters? 

The rail looks to be the smallest, however it's still changing the shape and size of the gun so holster selection is my primary concern. 

Original Post

I had the Dawson rail, which I think this is pretty close in size. 

Kramer and some others molded specifically for it...others reported luck with just stretching a leather holster.

For a tac rig, a Safariland 6004/SLS  for a StreamLight M6 worked with it and another custom add on rail I had, but you had to use the smaller SureFire X series light.



I live nearby MARS now, and will be visiting him soon, this rail is one of the projects I'll be discussing with him.

Robert, I have been messaging MARS as well, and they are supposed to be checking fit on a Sparks summer special for once they have the rails. 

I had thought they were already available as I could have awosw I saw them on their site today.  Definitely post your findings, they will be greatly appreciated. 

If I get one, it may be down the road, 1911 stuff is no longer a priority.....but then again
