Holster for 5" 1911
I just put a order in for my new 1911. Will be the Government Sized Springfield Loaded in a parkerized finish. Now I am stuck waiting, since it didn't show any expected date of arrival. In the meantime I'm looking into holsters.
Doing a search I came across the usual candidates. Milt Sparks for instance. I also saw Brommeland mentioned highly.
My question is what other brands/models are worthwhile? I'm looking for an IWB that is leather. Just waiting most of the year isn't something I'm interested in.
Can anyone lead me in the direction of something that will be delivered a little quicker? (If sparks is that much better I'll wait)

Get a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro, you can wear it IWB, OWB, with different cants, etc. Plus they are beautifully made and function perfectly. Link at the top of this page.

I ordered a Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 off of Brownells earlier today. I hope its a good choice. Figure start there then move to something else later.
Any opinions on the Summer Special 2?

I have a Double Clip non-reinforced RH in Brown 15 degrees in stock ready to ship out.
Here is a pic of a brown Double Clip for a Coonan Arms reinforced and the one I have available is non-reinforced.

I love my UBG Canute for my full sized Loaded 1911's. Give Nate at UBG a look, both price and wait time are very reasonable.

Look at Cedar Ridge Saddlery as well. They took up all the Gordon Davis patterns, and making them again.

Del Fatti in our opinion is in a League of his own crafting some of the best leather products in the marketplace today.

This. I have the exact same holster for my Commander sized 1911 (just one inch shorter) and can't say enough praises about it. Extremely comfortable even during long car trips.
