  1. You are correct, but from what I have read in 2015 Springfield started making all 1911 in the USA from USA parts. Prior to 2015 you had to look for a certain mark on the frame to get a US made 1911 I think they were marked NM but don't hold me to this, it's just what I have read wandering around the net. I have a 10+ year old Springfield Loaded Government that is US made and it's a tack driver and eats anything I have fed it. I can't speak for all of them but my loaded was as tight as any of the high end (Dan Wesson, Wilson, etc.) pistols that I looked at when I bought it. The only problem I have ever had out of it was on break in I over lubed it because of how tight the tolerance were and after a couple mags of some really cheap ammo it got so dirty it gummed it up a little but cleaned it at the range lightly oiled it and it has functioned flawlessly ever since. It is still tight and functions flawlessly so IMO you can't go wrong, just look them over and decide for yourself.
  2. Nice looking pistol. I have a Rock 45 officers model and it has been totally reliable, and shoots as well as any of the other 1911s I have owned. They make a great pistol especially for the money.
  3. I'm so glad you like the sheath, it was fun to do. It can sometimes be a challenge to match the beauty of GTs knives but I think this one definitely came together.
  4. Just pm any time, I would be happy to help. Thank you, she has been very happy with it.
  5. Thanks BHG123 I'll pass along the info on the Jean's to both her and my wife. As for the draw I know she's working on it I have told her all I can about wearing a shoulder rig so it's up to her to practice practice practice. She also knows a couple of instructors that may be able to help her if need be.
  6. She has been, she's pretty good about the direction she points the muzzle. Yep I usually don't need to worry about her when it comes to boyfriends, she can handle herself pretty well, lol. She usually carries IWB but this is for when her pants either don't have belt loops or are just too tight for her normal mode of carry, although knowing her it may become her EDC time will tell. I have carried in a shoulder rig but they have always been more out of necessity, I prefer IWB carry, but alot of women's pants seem to be made as tight as they can get them or the belt loops are tiny and won't fit her gun belt, at least the non Jean's type and she tends to wear jean's less than other styles of pants.
  7. So my daughter wanted a shoulder holster so she could carry her Ruger LC9 and her knife without wearing a belt. This is what I came up with... it still needs to have the final adjustments done and the straps trimmed but I want her to were it a bit and find the most comfortable placement before she cuts the straps. The back lower strap keeps the holster and the knife/mag pouch from going forward when bending over.
  8. Thank you Chucktshoes, I totally forgot to add my web address. Yes my site is www.eaglecreekgunleather.com Thanks again.
  9. I am offering a coupon code for 20% off for TGO members. If you go to my website just enter TGO20 at checkout and if it's done through PM it is automatic when I quote a price. Thanks.
  10. I usually tell people 3-4 weeks, but depending on my work load it can sometimes be quicker and on very rare occasions maybe a week longer but that doesn't happen often. I'm also getting ready to post a coupon for 20% off for TGO members just need to figure out where to post it. The coupon code is TGO20 if you order through my website, but if you PM me its automatic.
  11. Here are a couple I have done... This was done for one of the members here. It is a cross draw but I can make a strongside holster as well. The next one is for a revolver but it gives an idea for what can be done with a thumb break holster. These are both avenger style holsters but I can also do pancake style holsters as well, I just don't have any pics of them with a thumb break. There are also others on here that make holsters as well, and I'm sure you will get others chiming in. There is alot of talent on here. Congrats on the 1911 it's one of my favorites both to do holsters for and to shoot, I've carried mine forever.
  12. I do have a machine but I used both the machine and hand stitching. The knife sheath, linings, chape and billet were stitched with the machine the holster body, and bullet loops were stitched by hand.
  13. It is done like a a Mexican loop holster, the sheath is folded and tucked into itself to make the belt loop, no stitching or rivets.
  14. This has been on the back burner since Christmas. Finally got a chance to work on it and get it finished, I think it turned out pretty good. The holster and belt are from the "Hand of God" Rig from 3:10 to Yuma except I didn't want the same tooling and it is lined, the belt is also lined but with the rough side out so it wont slip around. The bullet loops, Holster loop, Chape, and billet are dyes a deep brown and the rest is an oil finish I also added conchos. I really enjoyed making this rig and plan on doing a cross draw holster for when I get my other pistol. Thanks go to my wife and kids for getting me the pistol for Christmas and to GT for the knife.
  15. Thank you John75, I have made a few in this distressed style and I'm sure I will be doing more, I will be posting more pictures once I get my knife sheath done to match the distressed cross draw holster I made a while back.
  16. Thanks I thought they turned out pretty well and they carry well too. Thanks for the kind words hipower, it was a pleasure to build that holster for you. If I can get ahold of a mold or a real pistol I can make it, I have made a few others since these were posted on here. This one was made for a Ruger GP100 Match Champion the only difference is the customer wanted a thumb break but it rides about the same as the SAA in the pictures above....
  17. Wish I had the money right now, I have liked that knife since you sent it to me for the sheath. It would be great for my single action rig I'm working on, unfortunately I just had to replace our water heater and pay off some credit cards so I think my wife might kill me if I bought another knife, lol. Its a beautiful knife GT.
  18. It would be my pleasure just send me a PM when your ready and we will go from there. GT I have you to thank for this style of distressing, that Kukri I did for you was the first one I have ever done that way and it got a lot of attention on my end. The guy that got this rig absolutely loved that knife and sheath so since he couldn't buy the knife at the time he had me make this set for when he goes to Steampunk events. To everyone else, thanks for the compliments. I do appreciate the feed back,
  19. Just got finished with the belt, the holster and mag pouch were done a while ago , but I wanted to photo them all together. Holster and pouch are left hand Avenger style for a GLOCK 43.
  20. I haven't done one for a Shield with laser but I have done other holsters for ones with lasers and I have made holsters for the shield line so it wouldn't be a problem. I would just need to know if its the built in laser or a CT laser. I would have to see if I can get a mold for the 19 as I don't currently have one but if I can find a mold I can make it as well I believe its a K frame so it shouldn't be too hard to find. Just let me know if I can help.
  21. So I have been asked lately to make some crossdraw holsters so I have decided to work on a couple designs. The main thing that makes them a little different is the angle (at least I think it is different, lol). I made these to be a little more extreme than most of what is available as that's what I am getting asked for. The first one was made for a S&W 686 2.5" barrel and can be made for just about any medium to large frame revolver. The second one is not for everyone but I had to do it, lol. This one is for a 4.75" barrel SAA I still need to do a little tweaking but I wanted to show what I have been working on lately. Thanks For looking
  22. This is what I have been using... https://www.amazon.com/Gun-Storage-Solutions-Handgun-Hanger-2/dp/B0056GSCBM/ref=as_sl_pc_ss_til?tag=accuratescom-20&linkCode=w00&linkId=&creativeASIN=B0056GSCBM As others have said though they do flex a bit more than I would like, but they do work for now I just try to put the heavier pistols on the top of the shelf so if they do bend my pistol wont end up at the bottom of my safe. I would also agree the best solution is probably another safe, lol, that;s what I am planning on especially since my wife has started to invade the safe to store her items in. If another safe isn't an option and if you don't find something you like that is currently on the market then perhaps find a good wood worker and see if you can have some racks made that will hold what you need for the space you have available maybe something like a pull out rack that uses the whole depth and width of the shelves, or something along those lines. Just my thoughts they may or may not be good so take it for what its worth, lol
  23. I'm so happy to hear that your holster is everything you wanted it to be. It was a fun project, I like to do things a little different than what is already out there when I get the chance. Enjoy the holster and if I can do anything else in the future just let me know. Thanks for the kind words everyone.
