Default Review: Stealth Operator Compact Holster. Fits over 150+ Handguns.

The Stealth Operator Compact Holster, designed by Phalanx Defense Systems, offers a minimalistic and durable platform that fits over 150 different handgun designs for an extremely affordable price. Models include Sig Sauer, Glock, Smith and Wesson, Springfield, Walther, H&K, CZ, Remington, Beretta and many more.



Features:

Designed for outside the waistband (OWB) or (IWB) carry
Forward cant for easy draw and reholstering
Frame-lock ergonomics for reliable passive retention
Lightweight, durable and simple
High strength injection molded nylon construction
Finished in black or coyote
Fits over 150+ handgun models

If I were to describe my first interaction with this holster, a good word would be “skeptical”. Not because of its appearance, but because of the claim proudly displayed on the packaging that says, “The Original True Multi-Fit Holster, Fits Over 150+ Handgun Models”. Sounds too good to be true, right? What appears to be just a claim at first, quickly proves to be accurate.

After sliding the Stealth Operator Compact onto my belt I was very surprised at how snug the holster contoured to my body. The holster’s belt loop design creates a close, secure fit. Being compact, the holster is hardly noticeable when on my belt by itself – it is actually smaller and much lighter than my iPhone 6 Plus.



The first firearm I seated into the holster was a Springfield XD-S 9mm. Not knowing what to expect, I was surprised at how easily the handgun slid into retention, complimented by the click of the frame-lock.*While holstered, I jiggled the weapon, which had no wobble or play. The holster was also very comfortable with the added weight and was easy to conceal under an untucked shirt. I continued to wear the duo for the entirety of the day and was completely comfortable.

When drawing the firearm, a simple tug upwards and slightly forward matching the holster angle released the retention easily. Having the weapon on the hip also makes drawing quick, unlike shoulder holsters, ankle holsters, etc. The Stealth Operator Compact seems ideal for concealed carry or private citizen carry, and is great for those who carry often and would like to have the ability to change out different weapons without changing holsters.



The second firearm I tested in the Stealth Operator Compact was a Glock G17 Gen 4. Just like the Springfield, this model handgun fit exceptionally well. Extremely smooth with a responsive frame-lock. Every other aspect was comparable to my experience with the Springfield. Just for fun, we also tried a Glock 19 Gen 3 which, as expected, fit perfectly. In addition, we had a customer purchase one the other day for an FN FNS9, and had a similar experience. He noted how hard it is to find a holster for that firearm, especially in a left-handed model.

After holstering and drawing each weapon numerous times, I never noticed any abrasion to any of the firearms. The outer finish of this nylon holster features a pebbled texture to guard against glare, and the inside is completely smooth to protect your weapon’s finish.



Although we weren’t able to try all 150+ firearms this holster claims to carry, I will trust the company’s list of models that fit the Stealth Operator Compact. They also say on their website that if your firearm is not listed that “just means it hasn’t been tested”.

Most people who carry want the smallest holster they can use, one that fits large and small guns alike is not going to be the best smallest size for a small gun.

If you buy a gun from me and fail to pass background, I will keep at least 50% of the sale price to compensate me for the time you've wasted of mine (sale and failed sale pickup), so if you're in doubt, don't buy my guns.

On the contrary, this holster does not hold large and small guns; it holds several options of compact and full size. I have 3 different handguns on my permit, each a different caliber, muzzle length, and grip size - however, they all fit in this one holster, which makes it easy. The holster itself is about as small and compact as any I've seen, and I have two drawers full of holsters I can't stand. For the $40 price point, this holster is an excellent option. If you carry something very small, like a sig P238, or a Glock 42/43, then this is not the right holster for you - however, if you have a selection of double stack or stagger stack polymers, this one holster will hold them all.

It may fit the guns they claim, but i call BS that it safely and securely fits all those guns.
