    Well, we're assuming it's a holster. Not a lot of information there buddy.

    Who make it and do you have a link to the website?

    Google is your friend... here's a review posted on another forum for your holster.

    Ok,.....here's the deal. I've been looking for a quality holster for my Ed Brown 1911.
    I bought a Brommeland Max-Con V a while back, super impressed.

    However, I wanted to try another holster, I looked into a Phoenix Stronghold.
    It's made by a company named Occidental Leather. They have been manufacturing
    high quality tool belts and tool bags for nearly 30 years. They have entered the gun
    leather business and have three models of holsters that are designed by Tim Thurner,
    owner of TT Gunleather. It's simply an outstanding quality leather holster.
    The design of the holster as well as fit
    , finish, hardware, and construction are second to none.


    Here are the quick details,.....
    - Wet Molded and Hand Boned to ensure a secure fit for your model firearm.
    - Stitched in Site Channel is standard.
    - Conforms to the curve of your hip
    - Constructed of rugged American tooling leather.
    - Available in right handed (RH) or left handed (LH) models.
    - Fits 1.25" to 1.75" Gunbelts.
    - Designed by Tim Thurner of TTGunLeather

    General impressions are outstanding! Flawless craftsmanship and attention to detail.
    Stiching and fitment of the leather is superb, not the slightest flaw or defect to be found.

    I have carried my Ed Brown for a week in the Phoenix, it's very comfortable
    and it is still getting MORE comfortable the longer I wear it.
    Drawing the weapon is very smooth, front sight does not drag or snag.
    Retention of the weapon is very good. Crisp engagement
    when the weapon fully seats into the holster.
    There is also the slightest bit of a break or snap when the weapon is drawn from the holster.
    The reinforced mouth of the Phoenix Stronghold stays open for a fast and smooth reholster,
    both standing and seated.
    I have mainly used a Wilderness five-stich Instructor's belt with this, but
    I have gotten equal results with my Looper belt and my Beltman.

    In closing,.....I can not be any more happy with this holster,
    this one is a toss up to my Brommeland Max-Con V I got a few weeks back.

    Phoenix Stronghold

    I received mine last week for my commader. Ordered it on a Friday and recieved the next Tuesday. I've been wearing it around the house for break-in. It's very comfortable. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.

    Great hoslter!! Just got one for my hk45c and I also received my

    Milt sparks vm2 for my commander the same week and I have to

    tell you the quality is right there with the sparks holster. I was very

    impressed with the strong hold Phoenix I would definitely get

    I carry my Glock 36 in this holster and absolutly love it. It is very comfortable and top notch build quality. I will be ordering one for my XD40 next paycheck and would highly reccomend it. You won't be disapointed.

    Sorry if this is a hijack but I noticed on some pics of TTs holsters The inside is very smooth. I have an older jackass rig and the inside is just like the backside of how leather normally feels. Sort of like suade. Is the inside coated with a wax or something to keep it smooth for a long time or is it just a coating of something for initial appearances?

    Again, sorry for the hijack. I saw TT chime in and hoped I could get some info. It would be nice if there was a "holster store" where you could see and feel all the different makers products.

    The inside is pressed and molded to the point that it is smooth and not abrasive to the gun, it is then sealed throughout. There is a pic of the inside on this thread.
