    It looks non-leather to me too. I suppose you could always go bloodstripe on the holster if it won't come off. Nice looking rig though.

    If I had to take a guess looks like either something with the hide itself, like maybe a scar or something like that. Best guess though is it looks like adhesive to me, sometimes if you get some adhesive on the hide even once it's removed completely it changes the way the dye will absorb which will cause that kind of look.

    I could be wrong though, just my 2 cents.

    Take care!

    I agree that it was very likely removed contact cement that left a trace in the grain. Sometimes that will not show up right away so don't be too hard on whoever made the holster.
    It probably looked like a nice even dye job when it was originally bagged up.

    What brand is it? It's a nice looking rig otherwise. I'm a little surprised any maker would ship an item with an obvious blemish.

    I'm a little surprised that it got shipped to. I would hope that it didn't show up before shipping but I half suspect it did and the maker was hoping I didn't know better or care. There are a couple lines, marks around the goober that should not be there but are not to noticable. The rig looks good and I would be very proud to wear it except for the goober. No names just yet as the rig is going back today, once I see what is done I will post new pics and give a full disclosure.

    Not sure how I would handle that. On one hand I would not be happy as these holsters are not cheap and it is custom work. On the other hand, after several months of duty use there may be many more scuffs and imperfections due to normal wear. Although I tend to be quite picky. Check with the maker and see how they want to handle. It is their reputation.

    If it is for CC and not OC, instead of wasting time and $$$ sending it back and forth, I would call the maker and negotiate a discount. Nobody will see the blemish and if you get a pristine holster, eventually, it will get marred by seatbelts, bumping walls, etc. I would find out how much of a refund I could get, but then, I am cheap.

    I honestly don't think that the maker sent it out that way & I'm sure that any honest maker would either fix it, replace the holster, or negotiate a better price.

    Any OWB rig is eventually going to suffer some scuffs and scrapes and scratches. I carry OWB every day & know that mine eventually get that way. Possibly you could barter on a partial refund that would make you feel like you got a deal.

    If you intend to Open Carry & people are going to see it - then you might want to opt for a new holster.

    If you had a Glock in it,,,,you wouldn't notice it due to the nice pistol. I agree with those that said call the manufacturer as I would guess it was accidentily sent to you.

    Almost looks like the face of Jesus in the blemish. I would put it on EBay and sell it for several thousand dollars.

    One thing I learned in the military was anything leather that wasn't dry rot or have a hole in it can be fixed. If it's out of warranty strip it, sand it, buff it, re-stain it and shine it back up and it will be good as new. You can always find the shade of stain you want from your local shoe store.
