N8 Tactical Mini Xecutive

N8 Tactical, a Crossbreed Holsters brand, is releasing the Mini Xecutive, a new smaller sized inside the waistband (IWB) concealment holster. Based on their original Xecutive IWB holster, the new Mini Xecutive provides a discreet and easy concealing holster for the smaller sized handguns sold today for concealed carry. These pistols include makes and models like Kimber Micro 9, the SIG Sauer P938 and P238 as well as the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard and the Ruger LCP Max.

Owners can outfit the Mini Xecutive with a variety of belt attachment options in order to configure their holster either as an IWB (inside the waistband) or AIWB (appendix inside the waistband) holster. Some of the mounting options for the N8 Tactical Mini Xecutive holster include the monoblock Clip, Xecutive Wedge, IWB belt loops and the Utili Clip 2.2 inch clip. 

Mini Xecutive holsters are made from precision molded Kydex in order to provide the snug feel that N8 Tactical’s customers have come to appreciate. The Kydex holster shell is designed to accommodate the increasingly popular slide mounted electronic red dot sights as well as taller front or back up sights. The holster shell is cut to avoid interference with the dot units while the sight channel is tall in order to provide enough space for dot compatible iron sights. 

The Mini Xecutive has a retail price of $34.95, and if purchased directly from N8 Tactical’s website, customers can select different belt attachment options that may affect the price. The Mini Xecutive is available in black or grey as standard, and customers can also select different options for other colors or hardware.
