Exactly. The FsN Serpas are universal to the FsN USG variants. Which is why I am puzzled as to why yours doesn't work. Countless of us use the Serpas with our USG's.

Yep, in fact I would say we might want to add model numbers to the holster manufacture listing here. Might come in handy for people like me :laugh:

shopsmart, did your model number align with other user's FsN model number for the Serpa?

Many of the manufactures listed here also have mag pouches. I have placed an asterisk next to some of those (I got tired of looking but think I got most of them).
I found all of these on the forum so if you have questions please use the search function & see if the question was answered in the other thread.

Got your holster monday GI for my FNP-45 Tactical. My decision on it's still out, but the quality and craftsmanship and customer service is second to none. Just have to figure at at what O'clock I want to wear it at, as it is thicker than the CBST I'm used to. It is comfortable though :) Love the silent draw

Had a UPS box sitting on my door stop. Holster showed up. Working good. Sorry about all the hub-bub, but blackhawk definitely needs to list things a little better for thier holsters in retail stores. Otherwise online is easy.. Been playing with it and liking it. Breaking it in a little and getting smoother. The model number I listed is exactly the one.

The holsters you tried in the store; they had the same model number?

Glad it worked out for you.

No they didn't. I wasn't fully aware of all the differences. The package on the back listed FNs, berettas, SIGs, etc. It was a catch all packaging. I became very familiar with their in stock inventory. The next day had internet research, model number in hand, and found they did not have the right holster anywhere. Thus internet ordering and timely delivery.

When they listed FN's they meant FNP's.

The FsN USG has a distinctively marked package that says, FsN USG.

If you did not happen on one at the shop, you didn't see any FsN holsters there that were of the Serpa variety.

I recently ordered a shoulder rig from Black Hills Leather. Its very comfortable and durable. They make the holster to order and still got it to me in a week. It's on the pricey side but if you are looking for something to last a long time this is the place.

I recently found Westwoods Landing Holsters who make, among other things, SHOULDER HOLSTERS FOR PISTOLS WITH LIGHTS, not an easy thing to find. They're a modular set up. If you buy a shoulder harness and adaptor, and paddle, then any holster you buy from them works as belt, vertical or horizantal shoulder, or paddle. I rigged my Fiveseven as horizantal, which has adjustable cant to about 45 deg. The fit is surprisingly good for a "one size fits most" holster but I'd keep it canted grip up because if the thumb break came unsnapped, it could fall out. They also make mag pouches, (and single load pouches for revolvers), doubles for the off side and a single that attaches to the holster. Again, for a one size fits most product, they fit pretty well but the retaining strap could be longer. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the quality for the price.

For long-term use, I prefer Kydex. Would you mind taking a picture of your shoulder holster while in use? How do the straps of the harness secure? To your belt?
