The Aker Leather 107A FlatSider XR7 shoulder holster replacement is a key component of our 107 FlatSider™ XR7 shoulder holster system.
"Flatsiding" works so well on our belt slide holsters, we adapted it for shoulder holster carry! What does that mean for the 107 FlatSider™ XR7? In the molding process, we use a customized method to ensure that the back of the shoulder holster is flat against your body and the fine contouring of the weapon details comes out on the front. This creates a stunning look and provides extra friction retention while ensuring that your holster stays perfectly close against your body.
The dual-plane open muzzle accommodates both standard and long barrels for full size or compact weapons and minimizes "printing" through the jacket. Comfort is further achieved by the twin harness tabs that are carefully positioned so the gun grip hangs close to the body, where it is comfortable and concealed - and there's an adjustable tension screw that doubles as a trigger guard stop.
Each 107 shoulder rig is designed and manufactured in our California factory using materials primarily sourced from the USA. We use a premium full grain leather from North American cowhide, which as a tooling leather is perfect for shoulder holsters since it retains the deep mold of the weapon and magazines, insuring years of use without losing shape as it becomes more comfortable over time.
For both black and tan holsters, we start with a natural cut of leather and either dip dye for black or hand oil for tan, giving it a distinctive color you will not find from other manufacturers. This also speaks to the detailed handwork going into each model 107, which also features nylon bonded thread, solid brass hardware, and finishing touches and flourishes only years of craftsmanship can cultivate.
The 107 FlatSider™ XR7 was also recently featured in the NRA American Rifleman magazine and online publication!
