    Fit and quality of product was excellent. It is not my first Diamond D product. My biggest issues was the finish. The product is not nearly as dark as my other Diamond D holsters. I purchased it to go with a different style firearm for hunting purposes. Hopefully it will darken up some with use. Still overall very satisfied with the purchase and the price too. Thanks
