Kydex Holster for Baofeng UV-5R anyone interested?

Post by jeepinbandtrider » Thu Jun 02, 2016 12:24 pm

I am in talks with a kydex manuf. to send him an inop BAOFENG (5R series) radio to have a mold on hand to build kydex holsters for these radios. I've searched around a lot and found a few people who have built their own but no one mass produces them.

Would anyone else be interested in purchasing one or more of these?

Next question is what battery would you want installed? I told him I may send him the standard and extended battery but I've never had a problem with the standard battery life and was leaning that way over getting one made for the extended battery.

Let me know what ya'll think and who would want one and I'll get pricing from him once he mocks one up.

Standard battery works great for me. And it definitely needs to have access to the external mic jacks.

Deal kind of fell through for now but I'm working at a gun store now after leaving the Marine Corps and have access to a few custom makers. I plan on getting up with them in the near future.
