As the title says...I was wondering if there were any good holsters for the WE Baby Hi-Capa 3.8. The Fire dragon holster that i have was good for my lighter spring gun...but its horrible for my WE. So if anyone has any info on any good holsters out there I would very much appreciate your input.
Here are the links to pictures of the gun and the holster I currently have.

I've got the same pistol. I use a Blackhawk SERPA drop-leg holster for it and it works great. Since the "frame" of the holster is rigid, there's nothing to come into contact with the mag release button to pop out your mag (a common problem with 1911 holsters).

The baby hi-capa is the only hi-capa replica that will fit into a SERPA. The longer models won't fit because of the accessory rail being a bit too fat to fit into the holster properly.

Thank you Bear and shakman for your input. Now you do you have any price ranges or links so I may further research these holsters?

Google is also your friend when researching gear and/or replica information.

The reason I ask is because I believe you guys have much more experience than I do and I don't want to go research on a site that gives horrible service. Thanks again.

Here are some other questions I have that pertain to this subject.

Do the SERPA holsters stay fairly solid or to they wobble when you run?

If I do buy a SERPA holster what weapon choice should I choose? Which one would fit my WE Baby Hi-Capa 3.8?

Is there a difference to the Level 2 and 3 holsters? (besides the price tag...)

The baby hi-capa is the only hi-capa replica that will fit into a SERPA. The longer models won't fit because of the accessory rail being a bit too fat to fit into the holster properly.

I removed the rail from my 5.1 Hi-capa to try fitting into the holster with no luck. The problem is the 5.1 Hi capa's pistol grip is too wide to fit into the SERPA holster.

So shakman what holster weapon setting do you use?

Setting? What do you mean? To my knowledge, there's no setting to be made on these holsters.

Addressing your other questions:

1. They are very stable. I have not had a problem with them moving excessively.
2. You'll need a 1911 model SERPA to fit the baby hi-capa.
3. For airsoft, there's no need to worry about the different levels. Level 2 will be more than sufficient for your needs.

Actually, I think it's the squared trigger guard, not anything else. I bought a SERPA from Academy for my 5.1 and ended up taking it back because the trigger guard prevented it from locking into the holster.

However, if you can get a Tanio Koba tactical grip on it with a rounded trigger guard, it'll fit nicely.
