The pancake slide is a traditional design created by the late Roy Baker over 60 years ago. Baker's idea was to use two pieces of leather sandwiched together for a holster instead of Askin's Avenger style of holster that was created using a single piece of leather folded over like a taco.
The MTR Custom pancake slide holster is designed for use as a strong side belt holster that can be worn on the hip (at the 3 o'clock or 9 o'clock for lefties) or just behind the hip. The holster has an open bottom so it will fit assorted handguns from the same family or style. For example, a Pancake Slide model for the Glock 26, will also fit the Glock 19 and Glock 17.
Manufactured from Grade A premium 6 to 7 ounce bull hide leather, the Pancake Slide model works for a number of uses including:
The holster attaches to the belt using two belt slots located on the front and back of the holster. The belt slots will fit any belt up to 1.75" wide. We have found this holster to pull the gun in fairly tight to the body. The Pancake Slide rides slightly above the belt line, so some refer to it as a "medium" height holster. The holster also has a slight forward cant, so drawing the weapon from a behind the hip or on the hip postion is easy and natural.
Like all MTR Custom holsters, the Pancake Slide model is custom fitted to the specific weapon ordered and features a slight forward cant for better concealment.
I love this holster. Bought it for my 3 inch Model 629 44 mag. Would recommend it to anyone. Holds my gun great and allows for quick draw

This is my second one. I purchased a used one from someone to fit my P938. Perfect fit and great quality. Loved it so much I ordered another one for my Kimber Micro carry 9. These pancake holsters are perfect for carrying small pistols. Full size pistols and revolvers I would recommend a paddle holster.

Well made and fits the weapon perfectly. Would buy again, much more comfortable than plastic.

The second MTR holster I've acquired. Both have required no break-in and fit the specified pistol perfectly (1911 compact and XD sub-compact).

I bought this holster for my Ruger LCRx 3in. The fit is perfect and took only a day to break in the holster. The fit is flush and comfortable with my waist and I have no problem wearing it all day. Thanks gunnersalley!!
Great product, professional craftsmanship

Gunner's Alley puts out a great product. I recently received my custom made MTR pancake belt holster for my 32. Cal. Berretta Tomcat, It was a perfect fit. I was very pleased with my choice both in the maker, and the product they put out. I highly recommend this product for its quality, and comfort.
Great concealment under any garment worn. I will order from this company again....Thank you for a great product Gunner's Alley.
quality leather. Hardware is....Meh

Got my holster in good enough time and am very happy with the overall product. The thumb break snap, however isn't up to the same quality.
To save time and hassle I've replaced it with a true military spec snap and stud. I'm sure the defective snap was an oversight and like I said, the leather work is top notch.
I'll have no reservations ordering from here again but sans thumb break.
Very effective holster

I have holsters from all the major makers. In the belt slide/pancake style. This one is my favorite. I like this style of holster because it tends to stay where you put it and minimize the print of the gun. This holster has more leather making the radius around your body smoother, thus reducing the print even further. It is very comfortable to wear. Only time will tell how it last, but given its construction, I think it should be one for the long term.

This holster is for my Kimber Micro. I've paid twice as much for holsters that are no better. Very comfortable, quick break in, great concealment and retention is just right. After using many holsters for various guns, this is my favorite!
