    6004 Shroud Mod

    I cannot take credit for this -- basicload from the lightfighter board was the first to draw it to my attention.

    The idea is to cut the shroud down so it can be run up higher (better draw stroke and no weight on the legs)

    -- All I did was pull the holster up to the height I wanted and noted where the shroud would dig into me.

    Then I took a black marker and traced a half moon along the shroud - then cut along the line (I used a saw blade off a SOG tool -- but recently some of my guys have been using Dremels -- and it works a lot better)

    The new (cheaper and flimsier) shroud is much eaiser to cut -- but unlike the old one the new one needs to affixed to the leg strap since the plastic sucks (it has a bracket that fall out all the time- so tape it down.







    How it wears






    Needless to say I've done this two two Glock 6004's here (my light and non light ones) - as well as a Sig, 1911, and BHP one back home...

    Thanks Kevin, I have been meaning to cut mine for the past three months. Your pictures and instructions will certainly help.

    I was one of the fellas on the lightfighter board. My buddy Dan Colasanto and me wear our Safariland 6280's with the 2.5 inch drop UBL and a single leg strap to hold it against your leg better. A bunch of our fellow swat guys cut theirs down just like yours.

    the HSGI udhp can be placed VERY high on the leg, im guessing just as high as the one above.

    I talked to Gene after having problems with it riding to low with the QD belt mount, and he sent me a simple "loop" to use with the holster instead of the QD. It rides real high...

    Excellent! I have a UDHP and one of HSGIs plain leg panels. The leg panel has a shorter, simple loop with no quick release buckle. I have been thinking about trying to swap it and see if it would raise the holster up some more on my stumpy leg -- and I bet that's what he sent you. Unfortunately I haven't gotten to play with it too much yet as I'm still waiting on a proper belt.

    Kevin, I like the beard.

    NOW you like a Canadian.



    FYI- I grew up about forty minutes from the border

    Is that the Schmidt Bender Short Dot that I spy on that rifle?

    Nice mod on the holster.
