Please help me find a good holster for my Micro 9 Nightfall

I purchased a micro 9 Nightfall recently and cannot find a holster that works. I want an OWB paddle holster preferably. Or a leather belt holster. I have purchased the Fobus Sig/Springfield/Kimber Micro Evolution Paddle Holster and 1) the paddle is too small to support the weight without a lot of unwanted movement. 2) the retention screw has to be removed completely just to get it to fit. 3) the front sights scrape very hard. I also purchased a fabric "Uncle Mike's" and the micro fits nicely but fabric is no match for leather so the belt slots have no rigidity so they fold in and the firearm ends up "hanging" out too far causing massive printing and the firearm flops around. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know Desantis makes a leather Micro 9 Mini Scabbard, one with the Kimber name on it and one without. Has anyone tried this holster? Thank you!

This is one I had made by TT Gunleather, I have hade it for several months now and really like the way it rides. I also like the double snaps so I don't have to unfasten my belt and undo it from the pant loops.

Does that particular holster have the leather on the backside to prevent the weapon from resting against your clothing or skin? Hard to tell from that particular picture but I do like the looks. Also, what size belt will it accommodate?

I have had good results from El Paso Saddlery on 4 holsters.
I like the Tom Three Persons design in plain russet leather with open toe and hammer thong.

Looks like you got the Hogue mag extension. Lovely investment for a solid grip. And I think it's around $8?

I’ve used the Desantis mini scabbard for the Micro 9. It’s a decent holster. Reasonably tight to the body. Retention is decent as well. I carry exclusively IWB now. This is what I would get were I to get a new OWB holster. I have one for my 1911 and it’s great.
