Trying to find a holster for my Springfield TRP Operator (full rail version). The full rail option of the TRP is not very common when searching for options from the different holster makers. Wanted to know what other models cross reference and will fit the TRP Operator. Did a quick search and do the following models fit the TRP?
-RIA 2011
-STI Edge, Tactical

Couple of brands I'm looking at are:
-Bladetech
-Safariland
-Garrett Industries
-Insert kydex maker (Alpha, Blue Line, Bravo, Kaos, Raven Concealment, Squared Away Custom, etc).

Contacted Safariland and surprisingly do not make a holster for the PC9105LCA. Really liking the Garrett Industries with the leather liner.

I would call or email and ask if they still offer this

Safariland does make a holster for it. What type of holster are you looked my for? Concealment or "tactical" or duty type?

Which specific model does Safariland make that fits the full rail TRP (PC9105LCA)? I emailed Safariland and they didn't have a clue as to what pistol I was talking about nor could they cross reference another pistol that would fit. I mentioned TRP Operator and they were like yeah...half rail only. Well duh, I need one for the full rail..."Oh can you send pictures please" :kest:

FWIW I want a range holster to accommodate light attachment for classes or range use. My original goal was to stick with Safariland gear since I already use two of their holsters (6004 and 5187) for my Glocks. The T-Rex Arms Ragnarok does look neat with having Safariland mounting compatibility, I might give them a call.

Thanks guys for the input!!!

I just use a blackhawk mount for it. The one you see attached to the belt is for my m&p9 but gives you an idea of 1 way to mount it

It's a 6280 holster. Don't have the full model number on hand. I carried it at work for about 7 months. I'll try and find it when I get home.

Yeah its a full rail. When i talked to the guy at trex he said they could only do a full rail as long as it had a light. When i got it they forgot to dremel the end for the bull barrel. So 5 mins with a dremel and it was good

Check out kt-mech.com

Looks like they have a 1911 Railed Springfield option.

Contacted T-Rex and got this response...
"We don't make those Ragnaroks for that weapon light combo at this time. But we do plan to support it in the future. And we do make Raptors and Sidecars for that combo. I've noted your inquiry. Stay tuned on social media for updates.
Best Regards,
Daniel"

Back to checking out other vendors that were mentioned.

Ok. Sorry for the delay. Here is the model number of the safariland holster for the full rail with tlr. The first set of numbers is the type of holster. The second set is the weapon code I believe and the third set is solely holster finish and left or right handed. I'm a lefty. Good luck.

If you want a really good fit for a 1911 using Kydex, there are two ways: Hope that an off-the-shelf model designed for your particular configuration works, or take the pistol, light, and anything else to a custom maker and have that exact pistol with light fitted for the holster you want.
The issue with the 1911 pattern is slide width variation for the most part, and not all makers are the same. For example, my early S&W 1911 can fit like a glove in nearly any holster made specifically for my Ruger 1911; but a SA TRP is a good bit looser. Tightening up on the retention screw does not make it any better, nor should it. Additionally, one particular Nighthawk GRP Recon with half rail does not fit as well for a holster made specifically for a different TRP with half rail. Lastly, one of my Norinco's seems to fit best in a holster custom made for a full sized Kimber. YMMV.
Point of all that is, sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes the fit is marginal.

Aww damn, already made an order for a L.A.G. holster (will get pics when it arrives). Thank you though for confirming which Safariland holster will fit a full rail TLR-1. You can never have enough holsters lol

For folks wanting Safariland...the model number is: 6280-5621-132. I believe the last set of numbers are color codes.

Finally able to do my write-up on my new holster from LAG Tactical. Have had it for almost two weeks now and quite pleased with it. Solid kydex holster. Went two tone with coyote in the front and black in the back.

Also scored an older Safariland 012 holster this weekend at a yard sale. The hanger/belt attachment has the velcro orientation wrong. Contacted Safariland if they can supply me a new belt hanger or if not, I'll just end up rigging one to a different belt attachment.

Been lurking on this thread as I am in need of a holster for a TRP full rail with TLR light.

I just pulled the trigger on the LAG tactical Warrior OWB.

Thanks all.
