Default Holster for G17 that will fit in AR Mag Pouch?

I'm looking for a holster for a G17 that will fit in standard AR magazine pouch. So far the one that looks like it would fit the bill would the Glock Combat/Sport holster if I shave down the sides. However I'm wondering if there are any other suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

I bought a cheap Condor MCR6 chest rig [6 integrated mag pouches, no additional molle unless I kangaroo the pouches]. I only bought it as a cheap rig that I can fold up and put it in the front of my range bags and the fact that's easy to get on and off. However due to my small waist I absolutely despise having to reach across my body to get to the last mag. So I figured why not mount a holster in there. I'm quite aware you can stow a pistol in the pouch, but I'd prefer to have the trigger covered. Retention can easily be accomplished w/ the bungee.

If you are training with rifles I find I really like my pistol mounted on my right front. With mags on the left.

Still thinking but struggling with your original question haha

The only free molle that is available is in front of the mag pouches. Presents 2 problems as I don't want to kangaroo anything to keep things as slim as possible. And also to boot the holster would very loose once the last mag was removed.

What about those "trigger only" type holsters like the Raven Concealment Vanguard? Wouldn't that fit the bill?

Otherwise take a look at G Code...either the OSH or the Incog. And I honestly don't know so you'll have to look at the measurements. But those two holsters are pretty slim. JM Custom has some pretty slim holsters too.

Blade tech will fit in there. Just swap out the belt loop attachment for the clamp on style.

Awesome thanks for all the suggestions. I thought about some IWB appendix carry oriented holsters, however I can't justify spending the $$$ considering I spent the money on a cheap rig purely to stow it in a bag. It's a little hard to store a Mayflower APC in a bag I was debating buying a more expensive rig that utilize swift clips, but I already have taco's mounted on the APC so there's not much need for it at the moment.

I'm going to try out the blade-tech and see how it does. I'll probably use a heated up nail on the backside of the pouch along with some washers to secure the holster in the pouch.

Again I appreciate all the suggestions... the G-Code looks sexy mounted like that too...

Iron on velcro inside the pouch, and stick on velcro for the holster.

Decided to try out a "We The People" holster, thanks Facebook ads for targeting me. For $25 [w/ discount code] it was worth a shot.

Uploaded is a picture and I think it will work out. Not 100% sure just yet I'm not sure if I like how the retention system works. It's open around the bottom portion of the trigger guard. Thus if enough clamping force is applied it's VERY hard to remove the handgun. However it is the right size and I'll be using velcro [thanks for the advice] so I'll be able swap holsters as need be.

Well heck, you said in the mag pouch. If mounting on the molle is an option...and this doesn't workout for your...then G Code RTI wheel all the way. Awesome system...albeit it's not $25.

Im going to sew in some strips of hook and loop inside the the mag pouch. I bought what was meant to be an IWB holster simply because it's slim and was cheap.
