Glock 43, 43X or 48

The holster is very well made from excellent leather. Although it is much harder and more time consuming to break it in to the pistol it was make for it is well worth the time and effort.

I had trouble finding holsters for the Glock 48MOS but 1791 had it covered and the holster fits perfectly with Romeo Zero in place. Thanks 1791!

This is art

These holsters are art! I have a couple and they are as beautiful to look at as they are functional. Might be the finest holsters on the market.
