Holster recommendations for 1911

Recommended Posts

Bought a RIA 1911 and am looking for suggestions for a holster. I am looking for a leather one with a thumb break which would rest between the hammer and slide when fastened as I plan on carrying it cocked and locked once I get accustomed to the gun.

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.

1911alltheway did a leather holster for my Shield with the integrated laser. It looks great and the fit is perfect. 

Need to get some money ahead and get a few more done. At least for a 9 and a 45 1911.

Not a thumb break, but here’s a pic of the rig he did for me with pancakes for my BHP and Beretta 92G.

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.

My preference is the Classic Askin's Avenger style with  a straight drop.  Most holster companies make at least one model of this. Quite comfortable, conceals well and very fast.
