I am ordering a Kydex Reflex holster from Uncle Mike's it says that the model #74111 will fit the commander size 7 other 1911's size guns. My gun is a full size 1911 with a 5" bbl. I think that it should fit my gun fine the bottom of the Reflex holster is open so the BBl may stick out about an inch or so. that is not a problem for me.Does anyone else on the forum use this Reflex holster in their full size 1911's.?

And they change the guns shape and leave the name the same. At least give us something different to go by.

As far as we know they discontinued the full rail 1911 but kept the name for the new one.
Sig calls the 229 with square Trigger Guard and Rails the 229. What happened to the 229 with round trigger guard and no rails? Oh thats the 229 SAS without the SAS.

[QUOTE=Mark Garrity;300047]I think your Dan Wesson will fit in most any 1911 holster of appropriate length. The only 1911s I'm aware of different enough in specs to effect holster fit are the Springfield's. They are thicker and more squared off thru the dust-cover, so may be a tighter fit in a standard 1911 holster. When a customer orders a 1911 holster, I ask if it is a Springfield, and if so I use a Springfield to mold the holster. I know Lou Alessi does this also.
I will also ask a customer what type of rear sight their 1911 has, and if it has a single-side or ambi-safety. An adjustable rear sight like a Bo-Mar that extends further forward of the dovetail can effect the fit in some holsters where the leather comes up high on the slide, and the same can hold true for an ambi-safety.[/QUOTE
dear Mark: i was under the impression that the 1911 slides made by Sig-Sauer were not as rounded on top as most 1911's and that this caused fit problems with some holsters. have you encountered this, or is it not a problem with leather gear?

As long as the front sight doesn't get caught on the bottom of the holster on the draw,I would just make sure it clears without any chance since the last thing you want is something impeding your draw when u really need to be quick
