    Does anyone have a Comp-Tac holster for Gen4 G21?

    An used Gen4 G21 followed me home last week, and I want a Comp-Tac holster.
    However, I am not sure which one to order for Gen4 G21.
    There are:

    20/21
    20/21 SF
    21SF 1/ 1913 Picatinny Rail

    I know it is not the 21 SF w/ 1913 PR.
    I called Comp-Tac, and they told me what I need is 20/21 even afterI mentioned that the Gen4 21 grip size is the same as SF.

    I want to hear from someone who uses Comp-Tac holster for Gen4 G21.

    Anyone?

    I have a Comp Tac paddle holster that works fine with my Gen4. Purchased the holster in the last 6 months.

    I'm looking at the MTAC on their site. They just have one for 20/21 and say "ALL versions". The MTAC is my favorite.

    I see that now.
    I was looking at the Infidel, and it has different options.

    But wouldn't the Infedel and MTAC use the same Kyvex? If so, it oughta fit.

    Infidel and MTAC are different shells.

    I've been using Infidel for my G30.
    I am thinking about Infidel or C-TAC for Gen4 G21.

    I tried MTAC when I had G19 but I didn't like it. I am debating if I should give a second chance for MTAC or not.

    Call Comp-Tac and talk to them. They are pretty nice folks. I had an order that got screwed up a few years ago, and called them. It was handled in about 3min(ie.. we're shipping a new one).

    Thank you.

    I emailed & called them (before I posted here).
    I did not get a confident answer, and that is why I wanted to hear from any Gen4 G21 owners who have comp-tac holsters.

    I guess I will call them & ask again.

    The grip has nothing to do with the holster, a Gen4 21/20 should fit the standard "21/20" holster. Some SF models came with a larger rail and an ambi mag release, which would require a different holster. What's confusing is that they have a choice of both the "SF" and the "SF 1913 rail".

    What do you consider "not a confident answer"?

    What I needed to say was "their answer did not give me any confidence," especially when he told me he had to check their own website.

    Update:

    I have ordered 20/21 Infidel w/ CTAC Strut. (I have an Infidel for G30 w/o CTAC Strut).

    Placed an order on 12/23, and arrived on Jan. 3rd.
    On the side note, on 12/27, the Comp-Tac person whom I talked on the phone sent me PM here on GT saying 20/21 works for what I need.
    It was nice of him remembering the phone conversation & put this thread together, and following up. It was after I placed the order but gave me re-assurance.


    Anyway, the holster is comfortable as I am used to with my G30.
    I feel more secure (cant angle) with CTAC Strut.

    Below pics are Gen3 G30 & Gen4 G21 together.
    I noticed Mag release is not covered on G21.
    I have to see how it works in a long run.
    I hope the release won't get pressed against my body.

    you may want to invest in some moleskin too; it's a small investment and makes a difference. comp-tac sells it on their site, or you can acquire elsewhere. i recently purchased some off ebay for my ctac.
