    Left handed holster suggestions for 1911

    I've been looking for a IWB left hand concealment holster for my 1911 Goverment 5" and just can't seem to find one thats in stock. I would rather not wait 6 or 8 weeks to have one custom made.I'm not picky about what brand or material (although leather would be nice). I've had my 1911 for quite a while and haven't been able to carry for lack of finding a left handed holster. I ordered a Desantis Inner Piece but after waiting 6 weeks the supplier refunded my money and said they didnt know when they would get anymore in. Anyone have any ideas?

    Contact Blade Tech.

    They can pretty much make anything you need out of kydex. They made a couple of unusual holsters for me with no problems whatsoever.

    I don't remember how long it took, but I know it was less than 2 weeks.

    Try a Don Hume H715 from Gunners Alley. You might have to wait two weeks, but probably no longer. They come with either loops or clips; I prefer the loops.

    I use an MTAC for my 5" 1911's and a Sam Andrews MacDaniel II for my 3". Also use an Andrews Monarch shoulder holster a lot lately. Never really had any problem finding left handed holsters.

    I am a lefty and carry a 1911 (Kimber Pro CDPII, so 4"). For me, the Galco Gunleather Ultimate Second Amendment is a really great IWB. All leather, tuckable, low ride, great concealment, and all day comfort.

    Sometimes going straight to the manufacturer is the best route.

    I buy all my left-hand holsters from Comp-Tac : Top-Quality Firearm Accessories . They build to order and I usually get my product about a week after I order it. I recently got a left-hand C-Tac for a 1911 with 5 inch barrel.

    It just amazes me how difficult it is to get left-handed holsters while the wrong-handed folks seem to be able to get their holsters without a problem.

    It was not difficult to get my left handed holster for my S&W SD9. I ordered it fromWelcome to DeSantis Gunhide®. "We didn't invent concealment, we just perfected it." — DeSantis Holster place my order and had it in 3 days. If you need any holster ordered order it from the manufacturer. If you order from a gun shop they will not order it untill they place their regular order which may take a month or more.
