Default 3913/6906 Frame Size

Do the 3913 and 6906 share the same frame size? Wondering if a holster that is supposed to fit a 6906 would be compatible with a 3913? Thanks

Length and height are the same, but not width. I will try to post a quick pic.

It depends on the holster . The back of the frame on the 6906 is also wider than the single stack guns. That may or may not affect fit.

I've found that open top holsters seem to fit better. Thumb break holsters cause problems with closing the thumb snap because the strap is just a bit too long for the 3913.

The only way I've been able to tell is by trying the gun in the holster.

I used my Desantis Mini Scabbard equally well in my old 6906 and 3913.

I picked up a nice DeSantis Model 82 shoulder rig and DeSantis Customer Service says it fits a 6906. However, the snap will not close on my 3913?

I use the same Stoner 415 IWB holster for both my 3913NL and my 6906...no problem
