    Holster For Sig GSR 1911

    I just picked up my new Sig GSR 1911 (it's the one with the rail), and I'm trying to find a holster to fit it. I'd prefer leather, but I'll take Kydex. I'm looking for both an IWB and OWB. I've ordered a holster from High Noon Holsters, but it'll be a few months before I get it. So, I'm looking for a holster I can get now.

    Does anyone know what the GSR will fit?

    I am real interested in the Sig GSR 1911. can you please post a review of the firearm in the guns forum. I would appreciate your input. I can't decide between the gsr or the kimber tle II. Thanks in advance if you get time to do so.

    A GSR will only (properly) fit in a holster intended specifically for it. It's dimensions differ from a stock 1911.
    BTW, we just addeds GSRs to our line, but have not updated the website yet. I am afraid, however, that I will not be able to help you in the time frame that you stated - we're backed up about 18-20 weeks on everything EXCEPT Service Grades right now. I'd suggest that maybe you give Mark (Garrity) a call. Good luck!

    Galco makes a leather IWB for the 5" 1911 with a metal hold-open. I use it for my Kimber Warrior (also a railed 1911), and it works fine.

    Gary's Def-Con also works well with my Warrior.

    It's unfortunate that Sig would make a 1911 that is out of synch as far as dimensions goes with the rest. Your going to have to deal with a custom maker or Safariland makes a "one gun fits all type" the model 560 (paddle) or 561 (belt) and it would be size/model 53. Brownells has them in stock. Might be worth a try for now.

    Thanks for the responses.

    snowdoctor, I'll be at the range with it on Sunday, and I'll post the results and my impressions of the GSR.

    Gary, I thought that might be the case. I guess holsters for it will be few and far between right now. I'll see if Mark might be able to help. Does he have a website?

    Matt and torrejohn, I'll check those out and see.

    I have one for my GSR from Blade-Tech and OWB model.
    Just today while trying to find a different Blade Tech item in stock (I failed) I was referred by a dealer to Wilson Combat toward their 'Summer Companoion' whihc he said will fit a GSRs slide profile no problem; http://www.wilsoncombat.com/l_summer_companion.asp

    Thanks, Mark, for letting me know. It seems all of the good ones have a long wait.

    I had a similar situation with my Kimber TLE/RL (with rail)...found that Milt Sparks makes the VM-II to fit it...works great. I was in a hurry and went to Lighting Arms and got it within a week, but you pay a little premium for that

    What about this?

    SteveTwo,

    I am not one of the big guys, and my lead time is very short. I make about 5 holsters a weeks and I have been told that my holsters work as well, and in some cases better then one sold by others.

    I have mold for a M 1911. I donít know how much different the GSR is. I am looking to see if I can get a mold for one, but see if I know anyone I can make one from.

    If I can find a mold I can get you a holster in about 10 days.

    Here are a few of my holsters. Let me know if you are interested.
