      holster modification

      I bought a holster from a member on gt, he neglected to inform me it was a LEFT HAND holster... it's a don hume JIT SLIDE holster. I tried my g26 in there just for kicks and its a very loose fit anyhow. however, I have determined it will accommodate a spare magazine very nicely, but first I have to put a tensioning screw type device in the trigger guard area of the holster. can I buy these separately somewhere? anyone have one laying around ? I'd pay for shipping. I could even fit my glock 18 mag in there if i wanted to.

      I'd just sell it on eBay and get a proper mag carrier.

      Mike is right, but...
      Just for information's sake:
      The tensioning screw most used in holsters is called a "Chicago screw." They're made in steel, brass, and aluminum, and come in several lengths. Brass Chicago screws are available from leather-tools suppliers. Aluminum ones can be found in most business-stationery stores, used as ledger-book fasteners. Don't bother about the steel ones.
      The actual tensioner, sandwiched between the leather layers of the pouch to be tensioned, is a simple synthetic-rubber grommet. You can get these, in many diameters and thicknesses, from electronics-supply stores.
      Another kind of tensioner can be made from a short length of fat, thick-wall, latex medical tubing.
      All of these parts are cheap to buy, but you'll have to run around a lot to find them.

      Mike, I knew you were going to say that. I don't think anyone will want to buy it, it's a left hand and i'm seeing a boatload of g26 left hand holsters on ebay all of the sudden. eventually yes, I want to get a proper magazine carrier, but this should suffice for the moment which i feel is better then sticking it in my pocket.

      By the way--and this is for anyone wanting to sell or buy a good used holster and it might be faster than e-bay. Just found this site last week and alot of folks are jumping on board!
