TREX TALK: Shop Tour of Holster Production
TREX TALK: Shop Tour of Holster Production
Let’s walk around our current production pipeline, and explain how we make holsters now… but also talk through how we’ve been scaling and rebuilding our shop to make holsters faster in the future!

Are you guys thinking of doing retention holster
Sidecar for P-07 w/inforce aplc please🙂
Trex sweepy boi.
Glad to hear some of the old holster are coming back, I got really sad when I saw the sidecar I was going to get was taken down.
Have you been in the millitary?
You guys should take a look at a horizontal machining center like a makino 61. Better yet a DMG DMU 80duo block down the road. Pallet pool 5 axis changes the game and will give you lights out production in 3-5 months.
Your claymore sidecar says it’s made out of 0.80 Kydex. Although you don’t say whether that’s in indeed or mm or cm. So it’s obviously not 0.80 inches and not 0.80 mm is too thin. Might want to change it to "0.080 inches."
Jesus would tell you to wear a mask. A mask right now can protect someone just as effective as a firearm. Seems you are just not doing it just cause, "fuck the government" wish you would state your position as you state "you’ll be the one not wearing a mask". As protectors and followers of Christ seems childish and selfish. To bad for thy neighbor because you have principals of being told what to do. Moral compass isn’t pointing towards god friend. Sky daddy literally tells you how to live your life Everyday, lol. You’re a walking contradiction.
That being said, its cool to see y’alls place. Still liking what you guys are doing. Just don’t agree with a few things.
"We’re a Mac-free machine shop at the moment." As the lord intended. Professionals don’t use Macs.
I want to come work for you guys.
Glad to hear y’all are upgrading and that VP9 holsters shall return.
I like your content, but I’m from Brazil, please enable subtitles in Portuguese
22:40 Can you recycle those aluminum shredded chips, and shredded plastic pieces everywhere?? For the good of the planet , can you sell those scraps for some profit? for your own benefit?
When will ya’ll have more ac1 in stock ;(
Hello from centerville Tennessee…. every time I could see Lucas I enjoy our conversations I cannot wait till I can come out to y’all’s building so much I want to buy
I love to see the analytical description of your manufacturing processes. As a process engineer, this is entertaining to see your methods and control methods. It seems like you are continuing to move towards OEM Automotive level quality in your process and efficiency. I laughed at your comic sans comments.
Awesome shop I just ordered a side car a few days ago I whent with the dark gray and multicam with no light I can’t wait to get the new design thanks guys !
Can you show us how to zero the rifle effectively?
"Everything we do is completely OSHA compatible and compliant." *Camera immediately pans to trip hazards* I blew coffee onto my keyboard!
It’s increasingly refreshing to hear about progress, success, and by acts of God.
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
Isaac really has a dislike for comic sans font..lol
Are you guys implementing lean?
2-3 week lead time actually means a 2-3 day lead time by t-rex arms terms and that is okay by me 😊 great work guys!!
Love love love that you guys are focused on Jesus & how you can glorify Him in all that y’all are doing! Unmatched customer service, excellent quality, and looking forward to continuing in supporting your business & supporting the entirety of the U.S. constitution together!
Watching this while assembling AH-64 parts 😎 God bless America 🇺🇸
God bless you guys
Smooth precise fitting holsters, high quality well made. Fast turnaround. Awesome company!
I used to do cnc machining operate and setup on Haas mill machines. M30
You guys need to have more model options like tier1 and more endorsements for instructors to really make you guys even bigger. Love your product.
I love my sidecar for my g19 it was definitely worth it
I would like to see you guys make a retention holster like safariland does. It seems like you guys would be willing to address more pistols that takes dots from other companies
best IWB holsters for sure but for OWB I went with a company that does level 2 holsters. I am excited to see you guys grow.
my Raptor holster for my Cz75 does not have a "click" when I re-holster my weapon, is this normal?
Can the waste kydex be recycled for use on another holster? Is the a way to reform multiple used pieces of kydex to new sheets?
Paitently waiting for that pl350 release so I can order a new sidecar and ragnarok from you guys!
19:46 "…but God continued to grow T.REX as a company…" That is what humility towards God looks like!! God Bless the longevity and productivity of T.REX ARMS and God Bless all our Constitutional Rights.
Thanks for the shop tour. Your Ragnarok remains one of my favorite holsters and definitely the fastest for draw to first shot. One typical question for any manufacturing process: what do you do with all of the scrap kydex? Do you have the ability to recycle and reuse it to make additional holsters?
I was going to say, I swear I saw in the drop down menu a G19 with Surefire XC1-B so I ordered the light and then went back a couple days later and the holster option was no longer available. Totally bummed.
St. Patrick’s Breastplate was an awesome recommendation. Thank you, listening on repeat by several different artists.
Made in America 👏🏻 Just seeing your production got me sold, not sure if you’ve looked into p80 compatible holsters but they would definitely sell, and wouldn’t require much retooling. At my shop (automotive/racing industry) we just added 4 haas’, amazing machines also made in USA. Keep it up!
Do the shopbots have names? If they don’t I feel like the velociraptors from the new Jurassic Park names would be fitting.
Really enjoyed a view inside the honeycomb. Looking forward to the other reading list episode Issac has slated.
Are there any plans in the near future of offering a Ragnarok and/or OWB Holster that will have a mag holder incorporated into it like the sidecar?
ohh shit its Chad.
It’s crazy to see the work that Lucas and the team have put into this business. Major respect
Food for R&D thought…
one light-bearing holster model can fit an HK45, HK45T, P30, and a P30L.
A non-light bearing holster can fit all of those, PLUS an HK45C, HK45CT, and P30SK, if you get the trigger-guard portion right.
That could be enough bang for the R&D buck to throw some love the H&K guys’ way.
Sure you have your OSHA-approved eye protection amulet, but where’s your CDC-mandated chin talisman!?
Though in all fairness, goggles, earplugs, gloves, and sometimes P100 respirators (none of that N95 rubbish) do have a valid use in a workshop, unlike a face mask.
