You may have seen my review of the Fobus Universal IWB holster... short review of that review: I like it a lot.
The one I reviewed was the small (Of course "universal" is not quite universal; there are three sizes.) Anyway writing the review got me shopping, and I came across a great deal on a large size variant of the same holster.
At $10, I was somewhat skeptical of it's authenticity. There are quite a few counterfeits out there. But the picture of the packaging looked good and I decided I was willing to gamble.
Got it today and it looks like it was a return as there are a few light marks on the inside of the holster that make it look like something was inserted maybe 4 times. More importantly, it does look like a genuine Fobus.

What led to this post, though is this:
480580

Who'da thunk it... a Taurus specifically listed as fitting!

So I checked, and as of this moment the company still has 12 of them they are offering at that price.

I am not affiliated with Fobus, Amazon, or the retailer. I just think that $10 for a holster that works is a great deal.

If this needs to be moved, fine. If this needs to be deleted, I apologize in advance.

Deals are deals and posting to save members a few bucks is a good thing. I bought a "Stealth Operator" universal OWB holster on sale a couple of years ago and never used it. Sold it with my G2 to a friend. I may have to grab one of those Fobus.

I'm still mourning the return of my PT 145 SS
Time is never linear. It is measured in triumphs and heartbreak. May your laughter always outlast your lamentation.

Well I received my holster and I'm not very impressed. I will sell it for what I paid, unused.

Actually reviewed the original posting again and see it's Amazon. Since I have the original packaging, I'll just return it to them for full credit.

It's a third party seller on Amazon that wants 4.59 for the privilege to return it.

Give it a try... it is much more comfortable than it looks. Of course a lot depends on personal preference, but I suggest not discarding it without trying

After seeing this post I ordered one for my 4.25 barrel 17 round PT24/7 Millenium G2. The fit is large and a bit sloppy. I think if I were to add two rivets, or two screws from my extras kit for my alien gear I might be able to cinch it up a little better. For $10 I'll try it out for a while, if nothing else it might be a good winter carry when I can wear heavier clothing.

The Millenium probably needs the medium...

Maybe, but bear in mind this isn't the millennium as in pt111, predecessor to the G2C. This is closer to what you would consider duty sized, apart from having a 5" or bigger barrel.
I know, but my Glock 17—generally considered duty size, fits a medium. My Sig 229 fits the large.
1911 also fits medium.

I sent the link to Fobus via the Facebook page and was surprised to get a response. I suggested that it may be a counterfeit but they assured me it is theirs . He wants to know my specific objections to it and I said that it doesn't seem to live up to the quality that I am familiar with from them. He said that putting the gun in outside the waistband iz wrong , that it should be fitted in while wearing it. My main issue is the depth that the gun sinks to, not leaving a lot of the grip outside for deployment .
