Very high quality 1911 holster

It is a perfect fit for my kimber commander size Pro Carry II. The finish and double stitching are first rate workmanship. Very similar to $160.00 custom leather holsters I have purchased in the past. Now I need another one for my Sig P320 carry 9mm. Keep up the great customer service.

Fantastic Holster

Love your gun leather. This is the second one I have purchased. The quality is outstanding and the fit is perfect. Keep up the great work on a great product


I'm just mad I didn't know about this company earlier. How is that even possible. The holster is great. I have a 1911 45acp 4.25 inch barrel with a half 1913 rail . I had to do the freezer bag thing as 1791 recommends but 20 minutes later... just perfect. Shipping it took no time at all , less than a week. To me this thing is heavy duty and very well made. They've got my business from here on out.

Awesome Holster

Ordered an optic ready holster for a commander. When the holster arrived it was slightly tight, but after using a plastic bag to stretch slightly the fit is perfect. The stitching and finish is on par with much more expensive holsters
