Here's the height of the front sight, measured from the tip to the bottom of the blade (not counting the base).
USP 9: 4.67mm
USP 9 Combat Comp: 7.36mm
I am going to have Dale Fricke make a Kydex Gideon Elite OWB holster for my soon to arrive USP Combat Competition 9mm. I realize the CC is built on the full size USP frame but my question is on the front site clearance. Will the Combat Competition fit in a holster made for the USP? I would think so but would like confirmation.
Dale made Gideon Elite holsters for my USP 9sd and for my Tactial expert 45. I called and talked with him and and he sent me perfect holsters. I have several Gideon Elite holsters and they are by far my favorite holsters. Dale is a class act and I would highly recomended him. Hope this helps
