you don't feel the snaps.

Just FYI, Tier 1 said they will be doing a black friday sale but you have to subscribe to their email newsletter to get the details and coupon code. I think I'm going to finally order one.

I prefer the AGIS due to the fact that I can carry the mag and gun separately. You donít feel the snaps at all. Also, I donít like the slim because I want the mag and gun far apart to minimize the bulge. The difference is marginal (based on my research) but itís still worth mentioning. I stopped using my Incog because the mag and gun were right next to each other. It would print when I slouch and I hated it.

ordered an axis slim on black friday. then ordered a set of ulticlips direct (same price plus i get the original clips from tier 1 where as, if i ordered ulticlips from them.... they send those on the belt with no credit for the original clip.)

i don’t want to deal with changing fronvelt to ulticlips depending on my outfit.... this way i just grab whichever i need. ordered the black camp material with *drumroll* hot pink back!

ordered hubby one for his shield. (although his is a boring gray back with the black camp front). *MEN*

The codura version STINKS. HORRIBLY! YUCK!

I wanted black camo and they didn't have the kydex only version.... thought the codura could be kinda cool. So upset I paid extra for it... cuz unless it off-gasses that horrid STINK, I won't be able to wear it....

I've had it outside airing out with no results. Put it in a bag with some baking soda... hoping that will do the trick....

UGH! What a waste of over $100 bucks if the stink doesn't stop!

I have same opinion. I have 2 sidecars. One for my G43 and G19 with optic cut. Have always been happy with them but after all the internet reviews gave the Axis slim a try for my G19

I prefer the Sidecar.
The Axis slim (ever though called slim) actually has more overall kydex compared to the sidecar. It has a bigger foot print than the Sidecar. Its longer and wider than the Sidecar. But not as thick. For me it seems to print more than the Sidecar.

The Sidecar had caught my attention before I went with the Axis. I may just have to give it a shot.

Both of my cordura holsters donít have a smell. You should give T1C a call.

I ordered another Agis for my Glock 19. Just received it Friday. I noticed that thereís no audible click when reholstering. Both my P365 and 43 has it but this one doesnít. Does anyone elseís have this issue?

No light. Iím aware of the fact that with a light the retention is on the light so thereís no click. Thatís why Iím curious to know why mine doesnít click when it doesnít have a light. Iíve already emailed T1C. Letís see what they say.

I have the Xiphos for my Glock 26 and have had an Axis Slim. I returned it since I put a flashlight after ordering... what I recommend is the Agis. Itís the same profile as the Slim and much more versatile. For example, you can take the latch buttons off, removing the mag carrier side, unscrew the other belt clip, and attach it to the holster side, giving you 2 clips to use the holster as a stand-alone. You canít do this with the slim. They told me the width, from body out, is exactly the same as the slim. The size difference is along the body, about 1 inch longer on the Agis. If you want to run the system with the mag holder, just snap the buttons together and move the clip with screws, and itís almost the same as the slim. Iíll be honest, the slim isnít worth it. Sorry for those that have already purchased it. Iíd do a return, pay the restocking fee, and get the Agis.

I bought an Axis Slim from a fellow cal-gunner and I like it. It took a couple of days to get the adjustments on the height and retention to where I want them, but it feels good and only get uncomfortable when I try to run/sprint.

The holster is for a Glock 19/23 but accomodates the 17/22 very well.

I'm constantly self-conscious that everyone knows I'm carrying when I have a t-shirt, polo, or button-up without a sweater or jacket.

I've wore an Axis Slim for over a year. Totally comfortable.

I just picked up an Aegis recently to support a light and to have the option of pulling off the mag carrier and carrying IWB strong side.

The Aegis was ordered with a light option. I called Tier 1 before I ordered it to ask them the difference between holster for a firearm with a light and one without. They told me the only difference is because of the light it will lack the click because it can't fully hook onto the trigger guard. I have since received the Aegis that supports the light and while it doesn't click in it's still totally secure.

How do you like the footprint compared to the axis slim?

Nope, but do yourself a favor and get the optic option. I kick myself in the *** because now I want to throw an RMR on my G19. I'll probably trim it myself but should've chose the option in the beginning.

It took a couple days to get used to a couple different contact points because it's a little wider. After a couple days I was totally used to it.

I like both the Axis Slim and the Aegis but in like the flexibility of using the Aegis without the mag holder.

Wouldnít removing the shock cord on the axis slim produce the same result in flexibility as the aegis? Just put the shock cord back on when you want to utilize it with the mag holster.

Yes it would but the snaps are easier.

I also put a light on the gun so I needed a new holster anyway and just went with the Aegis this time.

Something interesting I found with my Axis Slim holster for my G19, originally purchased for a Gen 3. This was not purchased with a optic cut.

Later bought a Gen 4, then Gen 5 MOS. The MOS slipped right in. I used a CHPWS V3 mounting plate for a new RM06 and worked like a charm. Too bad I already have a new T1C holster on order

For those of you who purchased the regular agis or the axis slim with the non-light bearing option, how do you adjust the retention of the firearm? I know the retention of the mag carrier is adjusted via the outer front screw and the retention of the gun for light-bearing holsters is adjusted via the front screw near the WML, but I have yet to find the retention screw for the gun on the non-light bearing holsters and I've been looking at pictures for the past 30 minutes.

I donít own one but generally the two screws holding the belt clip or the claw attachment are also the retention adjustment.
