Time To Holster Up

I found my first 1791 holster(recently) in a local gunshop, for a 1911 project that was completed. Since then, I’ve ordered more holsters from 1791. The company has a wide range of holster types// configurations for pistol/revolvers, on their website. Each holster, I’ve purchased / received; - the stitching is in place and complete. - the leather is of very good quality. - the leather color is uniform on all sides. - they are practical and functional. The holsters workmanship is impressive. I’ve showed them to my adult kids and friends, they all say the holsters are impressive. With our current situations(in the country), it is time to “Holster Up”, check out the 1791 holsters. Roger / Arizona


Our Optic Ready Paddle BH1 holster is best suited for 1911’s with up to half rails. Works best for 1911 over 4.25 inches. Additionally, the sweat guard will protect your gun from tarnishing and will act as a comfortable barrier between you and your hammer preventing any gouging into your side. The BH1 comes in a variety of colors to match your gun and attire. The paddle is adjustable and allows for quick on and off while ensuring proper retention.
