    Question 1911 Holster Help

    I just picked up a sweet 1911. 4 1/4" bbl made by israel Arms Int.
    Alloy grey lower,black upper,black controls,3.5 trigger,night sites
    and nice rubber grips. Now I need a good IWB holster for it. How do y'all carry your 1911's??
    I don't carry all day,because of work. Gun weighs like 34-36 oz. but slim like all 1911's. I looked
    at Don Hume products so far,need one w/some cant to hide grip. My buddy suggested the 715
    IWB by Don Hume. Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance to all replies!!

    Summer Special by Milt Sparks. It's a classic, minimalist design that doesn't take up a lot of real estate on your body, like the very popular Crossbreed Sypertuck. The ""II" version is usually in stock at Brownell's, otherwise it's a 4-6 month lead time.

    Most of my holsters are by Wild Bill's Concealment; I like to support local manufactures. I like the Covert Carry for my 3 and 4 inch 1911s and the Summer Heat for the full size Government models.

    I have a Sparks Versa Max II and it's great, but if i were buying a new holster today i'd look at Pure Kustom's Black Ops Pro for its flexibility. It's a great design and people speak highly of the quality.

    Try OWB with a good, stiff, gun belt and a high quality pancake holster with a decent amount of forward cant for a carry location right behind the strong side hip.

    +1 Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro. Great holster. Plus Rocky is a sponsor.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    I've carried some version of a 1911 most of the time for many years. While I am presently carrying in a Mitch Rosen double shoulder rig due to some chronic back problems, I've carried IWB more than any other way. My IWB choices, in my own personal order of preference are: 1. Brommeland Max-Con V 2. Sparks Versa-Max II 3. Rosen ARG 4. Sparks Executive Companion 5. Sparks Summer Special II

    Having said that, I've recently discovered holsters by Pure Kustom, and the one example I have is extremely impressive. Rocky does great work. Also, Rhome Desbiens at Desbiens Gunleather does beautiful work. Rhome was mentored by Gary Brommeland, and his holsters show Gary's influence, and I would rank his quality with Gary's.

    I'll add a BIG +1 to the Brommeland MaxCon V!!

    Over 20 yrs of CCing and it's hands down the most comfy IWB I've ever tried. It's the only holster for my Officer's model.

    Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro if you have the $$$ for it. The Kholster is also a very nice value option. Both are site sponsors and make fine products. The PK BOP is a premium product and the Kholster is a value product. Both are great products, just at different price points.

    1911 Holster

    If you are interested in trying OWB, I have a couple of new pancake holsters ready to go. I have some holster and matching mag pouches on sale. Let me know if I can help.

    These holsters fit close to the body.
