I need a pancake style holster for my 1911.
I want a custom high quality piece of leather, that will
last a long time and be good looking to boot.

Anone have a few leads to some good custom leather workers ?

Thanks,

Scott

There are none better than the holsters from Lou Alessi...

This is Lou’s CQC pictured with one of his single mag carriers...

That won't be a problem.
But one thing, how long does it take to get one ?

Also what is the price ? I understand that quality is expensive.

I will call them on Monday and see what they say.

scottfn308- +1 for Lou Alessi's holsters. I just rec'd one of his Talon Plus holsters for my Glock 19. In my email correspondence with him, he said that there is a several week backlog for deliveries. But IMHO, it is well worth the wait. I have 4 of his holsters and very satisfied with the quality. I've included a picture of one of my rigs for your info.

Boy, now that is a really nice rig there.
It also pulls at me hard, as I have 4 HPs also
in addition to my 1911s.

I really like the Garrity holster that is pictured here,
as well as the Alessi one too. Decisions, decisions.............

I guess I will have to use the AR15.com motto, and just get both.


Thanks, for the food for thought,

Scott

I prefer Horseshoe Leather.

These guys have each built me a holster for my 3" Kimber 1911. Bulman also made me a combo mag pouch with a hole for my surefire flashlight. Very cool. Null made me an ankle holster that is remarkably comfortable. Both make nice stuff at very reasonable prices.

my Andrews Custom holster did not, it almost locks in place, but slides out with ease. It takes about month or two but the price, wait and quality was worth it.
