    Default HK45C + TLR-7 + Kaluban Cloak holster

    A couple months ago I acquired a locking key fitting the TLR-7 to my HK45C. This was cool, but I had no way to carry the HK45C with the light attached, as no one offered a holster for this combination; due to this set-up not being possible with factory/OEM parts.

    This lead me to endless hours on the inner-webs looking at pics of weapon mounted lights on the HK45C, comparing their sizes, and how they fit on the HK45C. I determined the Viridian X5L fit the HK45C similar to the TLR-7 with the after market locking key, and the X5L appeared to be similar’ish in size.

    With that info, I ordered a Kaluban Cloak pancake holster for the HK45C with the X5L option. I previously had a Kaluban Cloak (KC) pancake holster for the HK45C with no attachment. I really like the KC holster.

    The holster arrived today. I was pleased to find the holster worked with the TLR-7 on my HK45C. However, it didn’t snap/lock into the holster as is customary with kydex holsters. It fit, but I wanted it to snap in. I hit it with a heat gun and made two pinch points. Now the gun snaps into the holster.

    I also put KC’s IWB clips on it, IWB is my preferred method of carry. I set the holster up, I
    And found it to be more comfortable than I expected it to be (kydex + light attached).

    That is very interesting. Wonder if the same would hold true for other holster manufacturers.

    I have been holding off on putting a TLR7 on my 45C for just this reason.

    Are you using the key being made by the member here?

    yes, the key I got from the guy on here.

    wearing the new set up today, it rides nice, and is way more comfortable than other kydex IWB holsters I have tried historically.

    Got my TLR7 key on the way.

    Could you show where you made the two pinch points in yours?

    I have not found any other options (at least shown online) that look like they will work with the 45C/TLR7.

    When I get home, later this week, I’ll shoot some close up pics of the pinch points. I don’t have the holster with me currently, I’m away from home.

    Here are some pics. I basically guessed, based on my estimation of where the light was in the holster.

    It worked for me. I had to alter the body shield portion where it interacted with the safety lever also. I carry condition 1, and the shield was deactivating the safety lever. So I made the recessed area larger, and tightened the General fit of the holster to the gun. Now it is perfect, gun locks into the holster with a very definite click/snap. I am very happy with the outcome.

    I tried searching for the custom key and couldn’t find anything on my phone. Where can I get one of these off this forum? Is it the same guy from pistol-forum?
