Description / SIG P6/P225 Belt Holster
The SIG Sauer line of pistols, named due to the company’s collaboration with J.P. Sauer & Sons, began in 1975 with the introduction of the SIG Sauer P220. The P220 is a semi-automatic pistol that utilizes a short-recoil operation and was originally developed for use with the Swiss army as a replacement for the SIG P210. Eventually, the P220 spawned many variants which remain popular today, including the SIG P6 and the SIG P225.
As noted, the SIG P6/P225 is a compact version of the P220. Though these two pistols are relatively identical, there are some slight differences, including the trigger pull, hammer style, sights and the feed ramp. The biggest difference is the designation. The SIG P6 is the West German police variant. Whatever version you have, it will pair very nicely with the SIG P6/P225 belt holster.
As noted, the SIG P6/P225 belt holster is made in Germany by Akah, a company known for its high-quality leather goods. As such, the holster is constructed almost entirely from leather. The only non-leather component is the snap fastener that secures the pistol.
The SIG P6/P225 belt holster is an outside the waistband holster designed to be worn on a belt. It is contoured and fits comfortably on the hip while providing quick and easy access to your pistol. To wear, simply thread a belt through both belt loops on each side of the holster. Though it may not be the premiere choice for concealed carry, its ease-of-use and low price point makes it a top contender. As noted, both left- and right-hand draw versions of the holster are available.
Above, you will notice our pictures, which show a variation in the color of the holsters. Almost every holster is some shade of brown. Due to the materials used in manufacturing the holster and aging, many of the holsters are not identical in color. Because there are a variety of shades, we are unable to offer a color selection. Rest assured each of the holsters is in excellent cosmetic and working condition.
At only $9.95, you will be hard pressed to find a higher-quality holster at a lower price. The SIG P6/P225 belt holster is perfect choice for:
- Concealed carry
- Protecting your P6/P225
- Much more…

Well, if you want to dye it black, here's how: Get black Kiwi Leather Dye, in the plastic bottle with the sponge applicator tip (shoe polish section, 3 1/2 bucks at Walmart), shake it up and just start coating the outside of the holster. Take your time, multiple coats are needed to really turn it black (but it will get there), and the dry time between coats is long - a good 12 hours. I only did the inside areas of the holster near the top strap, no need for the whole inside. The whole process took several days and lots of coats, but the now the thing looks great, it has a really nice black finish like it was made that way.
The quality of the leather is good (got a brown toned one) and it says "Made in Germany" on it. Stills smells "leathery". There is a little felt sticky dot to cover the inside of the snap to protect the firearm finish.
I was a little disappointed after I opened the box when I discovered that the thread had pulled out from the leather around the trigger guard area. After some self-debating over whether to bring it to a saddle shop or shoe repair man for a proper repair, I just fixed it myself with some thick dental floss (old boy scout trick) through the original holes. 20 minutes later it was good to go.
My quick repair seems to be holding pretty well. Time will tell though. The 5904 rides nice and high and fairly close. Good for a winter time pancake style holster with a cover garment (have a permit) as with a handgun that big it still prints badly.
