    Can anyone who owns both tell me if the Standard sight C model and the Quick Sight C model can use the SAME holster? Thanks.

    If the holster is built for the QS, the standard sight will fit also. But it usually won't work in the reverse order (too much difference in the slide dimensions).

    It might work, but definitely better to be safe than sorry. ;)

    I asked on the old Caracal USA Facebook page before it was taken down and the dude tested a QS in a standard Bladetech holster and he said it fit fine.

    I've never tried it, but I thought I would let you know what was said.

    Bought a rig for my standard. Stopped off at the dealer who had a QS in stock, and it was no problem. It seems like with most rigs, there has to be enough room for the front sight to clear during the draw. The rear is simply not taking up much extra room.

    I just recieved a compact with the quick sights and already had a full size with the standard (straight 8) sights. I had purchased an Old Faithful IWB holster for the full size and I can tell you that the compact fits into it OK. The biggest difference is the fact that the trigger guard on the C is about 7/16" shorter than on the F model. (I'd not seen this mention before when comparing the two) This difference makes the compact model bottom out (in the holster) on the front of the grip underneath the trigger guard whereas the full size bottoms out on the front of the trigger guard.
    I think that either one would carry fine in this holster but may not fit quite as well in say a Crossbreed IWB because of the Kydex wrapping around more of the gun.
