Of all the custom holster makers, is there anyone who is really on schedule.
Is there anyone with a short wait time ?

The last I heard, Milt Sparks was running 6 months, and delivering on time.
Matt Del Fatti is working on orders from October 2005 right now. I have a long wait for one of his holsters, but they are worth it and he was "up front" about the wait.
I was told 3-4 months by Mark Garrity and it's been 8 months. I cancelled that order.

I can't say "definitely" who's on time &/or caught up. However, I have found that Nate at UBG holsters quotes relatively short turn around times & has always been within that time frame. Admittedly, I'm speaking for me, but I haven't read anyone stating that Nate's been late with anything. I've also found that his communication is excellent & if there's a problem, he will do what it takes to fix it. Others will too, but Nate's prices & turn around times are not as high/long as the others, YET. He's relatively new, so I'm sure that'll change, but I'd highly recommend at least contacting him.
I've bought 3 holsters from him, & will probably be ordering a 4th soon.

Have had an order in with Lou Alessi since November and it's being made currently. Placed an order with Mark Garrity approx Jan-Feb and don't expect to see it for some time. These guys are some of the best in the biz and fortunately I'm patient and am willing to wait up to a year or more for my order. I'm glad that Mark no longer quotes delivery times and Lou is just backlogged with large government contracts which are currently his bread and butter. They are both one man shops and if you want the best you better be willing to wait.
I'm running 3-5 weeks. Never been late on shipment. After it leaves my hands, it's up to the USPS to keep their end of the deal.
I always estimate long, to avoid problems.

I just ordered a Mitch Rosen Premier Full Detail for a 239 and was quoted 12 weeks. That said, I talked to Mrs. Rosen to add a mag carrier to the order and she said "probably sooner". Which is probably the case, as the one I ordered for my 229 arrived a week-and-a-half ahead of the stated delivery time. Nice holster, too. Pricey, though....
