Gonna cost you

Seriously. This holster is WELL worth the price. I have a feeling this is going to cost me a ton of money as I will be buying one for all of my carry guns. Great quality, look and the fit was perfect.

  • Which firearm did you use with our holster? T&C 1911A1 Tactical

Great Holster

I really like 1791 Gunleather Products. For my particular firearm, the fit is very tight, due to the pistols design. My experience has shown that with wear, it’ll self-select the most conforming, customized fit possible. I’ve had several different types of holsters but I’m landing on traditional leather, specifically 1791 Gunleather as my go to from now until they shut the lid on me! This is my 5th 1791 Gunleather Holster. Thanks for such great products. I appreciate the stickers and keychains as well! I hand them out to friends and encourage them to choose your holsters. V/r, Scott

Holster Perfection

Everything I want from a holster. It's well crafted, and the fit to the iron, is like cinderellas foot to a glass slipper, perfect. The holster is comfy to wear, and securely holds and protects my rod no matter how badly I stagger about or bump into things. A great holster!
