Guys, I am a long time user of the standard aiwb Tier1 holsters for my Glocks and am thinking of getting one of the setups that carries gun/mag up front but am a smaller guy. I have watched multiple videos on both the axis slim and axis elite and am leaning towards the elite over the slim because of the newer design features. I am looking for info from guys that have one or the other or have had both as I need something a compact as possible due to being a smaller guy. Any help (or pics) would greatly be appreciated, Thanks..
I have an axis slim for my 19 and one for my 43X, in fact I’m wearing my 19 as I type this. I haven’t been able to compare the axis slim to the elite in person, but based on the reviews and online comparisons I’ve seen the axis elite seems slightly more compact. The axis slim is by no means uncomfortable to wear or difficult to conceal, but I hear the elite is cut in a way to make it more comfortable. If you are a proponent of a WML, the axis elite doesn’t (yet?) support WMLs. If the elite had been available at the time I bought my two slims, I might have opted for the elite.
