What is thickness of SP-01 muzzle?
« on: September 07, 2017, 09:52:36 PM »
I've purchased one of the SP-01 Compacts (steel frame with rail). I'd like to purchase a Fobus paddle holster designed for the SP-01, but I've had it suggested the the SP-01 Compact has a wider frame than the SP-01. I just measured mine at the muzzle right about the rail and I'm coming up with 1.100". Could someone with an SP-01 and a set of calipers confirm whether this is the standard thickness at the muzzle, or is it different?

Measured my 2013 vintage SP-01 Tactical. From the muzzle back to the trigger guard, I am measuring 1.010" or a little less.

My SP-01 measured 1.003" about half way between trigger and end of barrel. I had assumed they where the same width but I guess not.

Well I'll be darned. I sure would have expected the same frame thickness. Looks like I'll have to find a holster that accepts a little wider body.

Look for a holster for the TS. I understand that the steel compacts use the same safety lever so should be the same width.

I think you want a holster for the P-01. I no longer have mine, but I measured my P-06. The frame at the muzzle is 1.10.

Earl,

That is fantastic news! I believe I've seen some holsters that specifically call out the P-01 and P-06. Thank you for posting the info.

My P-01 and SP-01 use the same Comp-tac holster. I'll measure the P-01 when I get home this evening.

Ok, My P-01 measures 1.104" about half way between the trigger and barrel. So any holster for the P-01 should work as long as the safety lever doesn't get in the way like some Kydex IWB holsters with sweat shields. You should be good with any paddle holster for the P-01.
