    I bought a S&W 5906 and I'd like to buy a holster for it. I found the Serpa I think is the right model. But it says it's made for the 5900/4000 series. I just want to make sure my 5906 will fit this holster.

    Anyone know if I found the right holster?

    Thanks!

    Yes, 5900 series ran from about 5903 to 5967 or so.

    Seriously, is this holster going to fit my gun?

    I also notice that the 5900 series has various trigger gaurds. And since that's what most retention systems use...it's important that I order the right rig.

    Thanks!

    You have to ask the holster maker.
    You changed the question.
    Locking system.

    5900 is just a series number to represent all pistols in the 59xx series. I'm pretty damn sure there is no model 5900 like there is 5906, 5946, 5903 ect.

    As for the trigger guard. Most will have the newer round style which will fit in any 5900 holster. If it has the older square style, that's when you'll have to double check with the holster manufacturer.

    I left a VM at Blackhawk!, but I'm not holding my breath on a response any time soon. I'm 99.999% sure mine will have the older square/round trigger gaurd so I'll definitely need to hear from someone that owns that version AND a Serpa for it or until I hear back from Blackhawk! saying it'll fit.

    Another thing I could do is call up Cabelas and see if they have the 5900/4000 Serpa in their store. Then just take the gun there and see if it fits.

    Then I'll have my answer.

    But hopefully another GTer has that setup and can let me know.

    Thanks!:)
