MTR Custom Tuckable Adversary Clip-On IWB Holster With a Bodyshield
While the MTR Custom Adversary clip-on IWB has been a very popular design, MTR decided to take the Adversary to a different level by adding a tuckable option to the original design. This model features all the popular options of the standard Adversary but adds the ability for the user to tuck a shirt into the waistband over the holster for deeper concealement.
Produced from Grade-A 6 to 7 ounce premium bull hide in the USA, the Tuckable Adversary is designed to worn on the strongside in the 3 O’clock position, just behind the hip, or with appendix carry. The holster attaches to the belt using a black powder coated metal clip that will fit any belt up to 1 ¾” wide. A quick note on belt widths: with a double thick gun belt, this clip really works best with a 1.5" or 1.25" belt. A double thick 1.75" belt isn't the best choice for this clip. A single ply 1.75" gun belt will fit just fine.
Made with a 0 cant (riding straight up and down), the Tuckable Adversary also features a reinforced body shield. Many competitors use an un-reinforced body shield, but Matt from MTR prefers the reinforced model as it won’t collapse over time. The body shield is a favorite for many who carry a handgun under a base layer or up against bare skin.
The Tuckable Adversary rides deep in the waistband for excellent concealment, while still allowing for a full firing grip during the draw. The reinforcement also keeps the holster mouth open, allowing for easier reholstering.
The Adversary is a great choice if you’re looking for a comfortable IWB that can be worn all day.
Some commonly asked question about this holster model:
#1 - I like the tuckable concept, but can I wear this holster untucked if I wanted?
Yes, the Tuckable version can be worn with the shirt tucked in or as a traditional style clip-on IWB holster.
#2 - This isn't a one size fits all type of holster is it?
No, these holsters are manufactured specifically for a specific handgun make and model. So,if you order one for a Colt 1911 5", it won't fit anything but a 5" 1911 handgun.
#3 - I don't understand what you mean by "tuckable"? Can you please explain?
Sure. The clip design allows the wearer to tuck a shirt over the holster and into their waist just like one would normally wear a tucked in shirt. This option is really designed for deep concealment situations as that same deep cover of a tucked in shirt also slows down the ability to access and draw the weapon. Like most things in life, it's a trade off, of sorts.
#4 - I like the looks of this holster but don't need the tuckble option. Is this holster available in a non-tuckable version?
Yes, the non-tuckable version is the standard MTR Adversary Clip-on IWB and it can be seen here: http://www.gunnersalley.com/mtr-custom-adversary-clip-on-iwb-holster-with-a-bodyshield/.
#5 - What's the difference between this MTR IWB holster and the regular MTR Adversary Clip-On IWB?
This model uses a different style clip to attach to the belt (making it tuckable if desired), and this model has reinforced holster mouth for easier one handed reholstering.
#6 - I see that this holster has an option where a thumb break can be added? Exactly what is a thumb break and can you provide an example picture of what this holster looks like with a thumb break added? And do I need one?
The thumb break (also commonly called a retention strap) is a strip of leather that comes up from both sides of the holster and snaps together across the back of the pistol. This device serves as an added level of retention in keeping the weapon in the holster. In order to disengage the thumb break, the snap has be opened and then the pistol or revolver can be drawn from the holster. The answer to "Do I need one?" is really a subjective answer that depends on the needs and preferences of each individual shooter. If you carry a weapon while engaged in activities that involve strenuous physical activity (jogging, running, hiking, rock climbing), then it's probably something to consider. Or if you carry while riding a motorcycle or bicycle, then it might be worth considering. Or, if you simply prefer the added security of a thumb break, then it makes sense. Here's a picture showing what the added thumb break looks like:

A quick note about thumb break models for single action pistols (1911 models, Sig P238, Sig P938, Kimber Micro Carry, etc.): These types of pistols are really designed to be carried with the hammer cocked in what's commonly called the Cocked & Locked position (Also called Condition 1). As such, MTR builds thumb breaks for single action guns off the cocked & locked position as the norm. If you happen to carry your single action pistol in the hammer down configuration, please contact us before ordering so we can verify that MTR has a model in order to offer a thumb break in the hammer down position for your specific pistol.

This is my second order from Gunners Alley and my second MTR holster. This is the second time I have been impressed by both the quality of the holster and the quality of the service fro Gunners Alley.

This is the second MTR holster I have purchased, and I am not disappointed.
The leather is thick, and stays open on my waist, so that re-holstering is easy. Also, it fits my handgun like a glove, with no break-in period required. The craftsmanship is impressive.

I bought the MTR Custom Tuckable Adversary Clip-on IWB holster with Bodyshield and laser. There was no holster for my specific gun and laser so I ordered something I thought was close. Obviously I was off. My order was delayed and when I requested an update, I was told they were waiting on the exact pistol and laser I had so they could begin making the correct holster. They ordered and bought the same models I had to design and make the correct holster I needed! I am more than satisfied with the product and service I received. I will buy again. Materials were all premium!

I am impressed by the exceptional craftsmanship that went into this holster, as well as the quality of the leather. It fits my hand gun perfectly, after the usual break-in period. It is definitely worth the price, and I would buy another holster from this manufacturer in a heartbeat.

PurchaseD this holster for my Colt Mustang 380. The fit and quality is excellent. The body shield works great to keep the gun off your skin. Very easy to re-holster with one hand. Very satisfied, and intend to order another one for my CZ RAMI 2075.
