Great OWB holster

1791 Gunleather produces a quality leather holster at a price comparable to kydex. Fit my 4" barrel 1911 with optic as expected, with about 1/4 inch of additional room at the muzzle to accomodate a traditional commander-length 4.25" barrel. I also own the full-size version of this holster for my Remington R1 Government.

Great holster

I've been carrying for 50 years. I have never had a holster that satisfied me like this one. I have three different models that I purchase one for my Model 36 Smith & Wesson I also have one on a purchase for my K frame 357 Smith & Wesson and of course this one fits my Springfield Armory range officer Elite champion like it was specifically made for it.

As usual it was a great experience. Ordered item which was in stock and it was delivered fast. Holster works great and is very comfortable. Been using it open carry on my property during the summer. This is my second 1791
