    Nice IWB for a Kimber Ultra II?

    Anybody have any suggestions. I want something small with just 1 point of attachment to my belt. Galco has some nice ones but none specifically list the Ultra.

    Also, is the Ultra just a 3 inch 1911, an officers frame or what. That might help me choose a holster!!!

    Blackhawk makes a decent IWB with 1 solid loop:

    I have a Sparks VM2 (two loops) and the Andrews McDaniel2 (one loop) for my Kimber Tac Ultra II 3". I have been wearing the Andrews more. It is more "minimalist" but very comfortable. I also recommend the body shield option. I'm wearing an untucked polo shirt today and my wife doesn't know I have it on. Also, the "officer" part of the Ultra is the grip length, so you want to look for holsters for a 3" 1911.
    The fact that you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

    Yes, 3" 1911=Ultra.
    I will advise you though, that a single loop design will not be very stable with a 1911, no matter how small. I strongly advise against it.
    I recommend a double loop design such as the VMII from Sparks or the watch six. I'll also ruffle some feathers and so go with a custom holster. You'll have to wait for it but it generally won't cost much more than a Galco and you'll get a MUCH BETTER HOLSTER.

    I have to disagree on the above statement as to a single point attachment. It depends on the holster. A Andrews Leather McDaniel II is very stable and holds close to your body. Just check with anyone that has one. I have around 5 of them. I can't say about other modles of single point attachment holsters as I don't have any. The rest are double point.

    Rosen ARG Express - IWB

    This Mitch Rosen ARG Express has one belt loop that is offset from the gun, and is available for the 3 inch barrel Kimber Ultra (shown in picture). These cost $85 from Gunner's Alley:

    +1 on that. Been using the McD for both of my 1911's for almost 2 years. Very stable, very comfortable. As with all holsters a good gunbelt is required!

    Okay okay- most single loop designs won't stabilize a 1911 very well. I haven't used a Mcdaniel....

    Ill add, as a maker, that a single attachment point on a holster, whether offset or stacked.....simply cant be as stable as an offset dual setup.
    Its just the way science and physics work.......laws that dont break.

    Sometimes there isnt much diffference....but thats rare. You can have a great single att. style holster and not know its moving around at all...and then try a dual style and all of a sudden....a light goes on!

    Whatever works for you is what counts....I make both and wear both given the situation Im in.

    Look around and see what you like...

    Shoot well and god bless.
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice..........Rush

    Hobbies I want say as stable as say my VM II , but you get the cant set where you want it on the McDan II and you never feel it slip or any thing. The reinforced band on the mouth of the holster set right at the top edge of your belt and keeps the front of the holster from slipping lower.

    My EDC gun is a Kimber Ultra Carry. I use a Tucker "The Answer" leather/Kydex hybrid.

    If you really want a single-loop holster, try a Tucker "Cover-up". I have one for my J-frame.

    HiVoltage:

    I know your original criteria was a single point attachment, but I agree with gunsblazin on the Galco Royal Guard. It is a nice fitting & comfortable holster. I have one amongst many and because of weight fluctuations, IWB doesn't work sometimes, then it's back to OWB which works better for me.

    And yes, for most items like holsters, mags, grips, etc. if Kimber 3" is not specifically listed, a Colt Officers will fit.

    Hope ya find what ya want!
