Looking for recommendations\opinions please

I have an older SIG 226 9mm (No integrated rail)
Recently purchased an Insight mount and Insight\streamlight M3 LED.


Like the light and setup, now I just need a holster to fit it.
Any thoughts\ideas?

Thanks,

Jon

Bladetech makes holsters for that combo, and I believe that safariland does as well.

BDS tactical. They build it for your gun. These guys are top notch. I just got a drop leg for my 226R Navy and it is sweet. Made in the USA too. I will post some pics as soon as I get my camera back.

Thank you both for your ideas.
I'd like to see the pics of that BDS tactical rig when you can get them.

Thanks,

Jon

Any chance you can post a pic of that gun/mount/light combo? I'm thinking of doing the same with a non-rail 226 as well

Thanks

Sorry, it took me a little longer than I expected to get these pix up here.
Just click my URL links because I can't figure out how to embed a pic from Yahoo photos yet.

I know the LED makes the M3 LED quite a bit bigger than the standard M3. I really got this light for use as a small tactial light for my AR. I got the adapter for the SIG 226 as an impulse buy\afterthought. I'm glad I did though, as the SIG 226 is my main SHTF sidearm. Never hurts to have some extra light! I wanted the extra LED function (mine is the green LED) for navigation and\or utility lighting.

The light itself is very lightweight and easy to use on my AR or on the pistol without any remote switch.

Here it is. Just thought I would throw the pic in of my new 226 Navy for free. This is the BDS Tactical dropleg with the airborn retention(That is the strap that goes over grip).
