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.

    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.

    Optic cut OWB Holster

    Posted by Nopig101 on 2nd Oct 2020

    I never expected the pistol to fit as well as it does. The optic is perfectly nestled and well protected. The holster isn't just relieved near it. It's made for it. But the most amazing part was how quickly I got my holster. I never expected such quick turnaround on something custom for a pistol that's not popular.

    Holster OSW for Ruger SR22

    Posted by Greg on 26th Sep 2020

    Attention to detail, fit & Finish is outstanding. High quality materials & design better than most holsters. Testing and performance 5 star. Tough, durable and will last years. My buddy and I had no expectation's for this first time Dara holster purchase. Today at the pistol range was about static and movement drills all Draw starts under stress (shot clock). We both agreed the holster fit perfect , and performed way above expectation. Drawing and holstering consistently with no binding or loose screw issue. This well made holster fits like a tailored suit, You'll love it !

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Sep 2020

    This is a perfect fit for the 509c. It is listed just for the 509 but it does fit the 509c and works with the scope.

    Excellent Quality, Form, Fit and Function

    Posted by Tom on 25th Sep 2020

    I've been looking for a holster for my Glock G40 MOS with a Delta Point Optic for some time now. They are hard to come by. Dara Holsters offered exactly what I wanted with lots of options too. They got my order processed quickly and shipped ASAP. The fit and finish of the holster is spot on and they use high quality belt attachments with lots of adjustability for cant and ride height. It fit my pistol like a glove! Well done DARA Holsters!
