    My DIY holsters

    Ok, I have been tooling leather for a while now, so I wanted to tool a design on a holster so I could show it off. I went ahead with a really easy design for my first one. It turned out pretty well. So when I recently got my new Springfield Armory Champion Operator which has a rail I went looking for holsters. I could not find a single one for a 1911 with a rail. So I decided to make one. I got inspiration from The Alessi CQC/S, however I did not have the ability to make a direct copy. I had to draw out the template etc. myself. I think it turned out really well.

    Here's the first one


    And here's my second one. I love it!!

    Those are a couple of very nice pieces. The second one looks quite professional.

    Very nice job on the two holsters!

    This is how it starts... then you will buy more tools... get a website and taking orders and soon you will have a back log of orders!

    Thanks a lot for all the comments guys! I really enjoyed making them, and all your feedback really makes it worth while.

    I'm not sure that I am going to "get in the buisness" however, if someone wants a railed 1911 holster I'd be happy to make one for a price (cheaper than a mass produced). I rather enjoyed making it. I would make others, but I only have a railed 1911, micro 1911 and taurus pt92 (beretta 92). So anyone with one of those firearms, I'd love to make one for you!
