The Custom Optic Cut OWB Holster is designed to accommodate any firearm with a red dot sight mounted to the top of the slide. This holster fits outside the waistband with a minimalist design that leaves no extra material weighing you down. The top of the holster is cut away to clear the optic, leaving everything else covered, including the trigger guard and magazine release button. Does your gun have suppressor height sights that co-witness with your optic? No problem! Care is taken while molding to accommodate most suppressor height sights.

We use superior .093" Boltaron/Kydex for our Holsters, and fasten them with Melonite coated Stainless Steel hardware. All hardware is impervious to rust, leaving you with a reliable holster even in the toughest elements. Each OWB Holster comes with a Military Grade Rubber Retention System, featuring screws pre-coated in a shock absorbing thread weld. No matter how hard you train our Optic cut OWB Holster will remain rock solid- Guaranteed for life!

Don't forget to check out our OWB Mag Carriers, as well as our IWB Holsters to get the most out of concealed carry.

Please choose your exact make and model. Failure to mention any details that influence the external dimensions of your firearm will result in fitment issue.



My Pistol is Suppressor Ready, will it fit this holster?

Yes! Please let us know in the Custom Notes section that your pistol is suppressor ready and we will accommodate your taller sights and threaded barrel. If you have taller sights and do not check "YES" for suppressor height sights, your holster won't fit and this item is non refundable.

I have an Optic, will this holster work?

Yep, the optic cut is able to accommodate most, if not all, reflex sights.


No. Please see our Light bearing OWB Holster.


Yes, this holster will work with our Drop Offset Attachment.


No. Our hole pattern is proprietary and can only be guaranteed to work with our own attachments.

I have the Tactical/Omega/ETC version of a pistol listed in the drop down menu.

Please let us know in the Custom Notes section so we can ensure a perfect fit!

My carry gun is not listed on your drop down menu, what do I do?

Please contact us to see if there are any options. Sometimes we are able to make it work.

    I have a Springfield 4.5 XDM OSP. I talked to multiple companies and none of them could verify their holster would fit. DARA nailed it. Supper customer service and answered all my questions.

    Excellent Holster

    Posted by Thejugglingguy on 14th Nov 2020

    This holster could not be better. It holds my XDM Elite with Holosun 507 perfectly. The belt loops adjust for a wide range of belt sizes, so it will sit securely on an edc belt or a battle belt up to 2”. The retention adjustments let you change the tension to what feels best for you. There are also options to change the angle of how it hangs from the belt loop device. I got exactly what I wanted from this holster.

    Holster for M&P with red dot

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Oct 2020

    I tried a generic " fits all" holster for my M&P 2.0 with a red dot installed but was not happy with it. Dara made one specific for that gun that provides a good fit.
