    1911 in a MTAC...

    I did a search, and i saw that some of you are using a MTAC for your 1911s. So my question is, what do you think of it? I am currently using a VM2 for my Ultra (3"), and for me, it seems to be shifting around quite a bit.

    I have worn a buddy's MTAC for a different pistol, and really liked it. With such a short barrel, the VM2 seems to have a high ride, and leaves a good portion of the gun above the belt line. I know that with a MTAC, I can set the clips up any way I desire for cant and height.

    So, if you have a MTAC for a 1911(especially a 3"), let me hear all your thoughts on it. What belt you're using with it, and any complaints you can think of.

    Thanks

    I have a buddy that uses an MTAC for a 1911 and he loves it so much he won't even let me try it for fear I'll love it and he'll lose it. He carrying a Springfield TRP in it.

    If you're interested in an adjustable holster, I'd suggest checking out the Black Ops Pro from Pure Kustom. An all leather unit that is truly comfortable and extremely versatile.

    I meant, being a little more thorough with your response would be nice. Knowing that you don't have any complaints isn't much in the way of feedback.

    Ok-, The fit and finish are good. It's comfortable. That's all I got.

    Most feedback would be in the nature of problems IMO. Oh CS from Comp Tac is excellent

    When I had my Kimber Ultra Carry I always carried in an M-TAC. I had no issues at all. I could set the cant for whatever I wanted. I used a wilderness 5-stitch belt. As a matter of fact, I just received a new body for my M-TAC. I took off the 3" 1911 body and replaced it with an XDm body. I have no complaints with the holster at all.

    The MTAC is very comfortable if you buy clips from Crossbreed and swap out the plastic. I did not care for the thick and narrow plastic clips that comes with the MTAC. The best thing about buying from Comptac is that you don't have to wait 2 to 3 months for a stinking holster!

    I have used MTAC with 4" 1911 and it works well. It has a nice slim profile and it seems to be less bulky than my VM II. If you like leather and want to stick with that, then you could try this holster. Reinforced mouth IWB Holster "Mikes Special" He makes it so the gun sits lower on the belt-line compared to the VM II. Good luck.

    I carry a 4" 1911 in the CTAC, not the MTAC. My only complaint has been with the rubber spacers between the kydex clips and the holster, which would cause the screws to loosen up over time. I took out the spacer that was the biggest offender and haven't had an issue since.

    some people don't like kydex on their 1911, other than that it's a great option IMO.
