    Need a holster for full size 1911, UBG???

    It occurred to me that I don't have any leather rigs for my carry gun, a full size SA 1911 (can't carry out here at all, but while home on leave and such I still can.) But if I ordered something with a month or two of wait time, I'll have a rig waiting for me when I do get back to Ohio this summer.

    I'm planning on sticking with IWB, and want to buy a complete rig if possible, belt, holster, mag pouch.

    I've been lookin at Nate's stuff from UBG for a long time, but can't decide between the Canute or Striker. Anyone here carry a full size pistol (preferably 1911) in either of these? Have any opinions on them?

    Or can anyone think of any other good set-ups similar to this?

    Nate makes super stuff.
    Just so members know what exact two carry rigs you're asking about.

    Thanks QK. His stuff always looks good and seems really reasonably priced, I keep seeming to comin back to his web page when I think about orderin somethin, but back in college the wait time kept makin me procrastinate. Now I just need to figure out which one of those would suit me better.

    I tote my Hi-Power in a UBG Canute WITH AN EGA STAMP

    I ordered two UBG Canutes, and two mag carriers and couldn't be happier with either.



    And here's the other for my P7.

    Nice JD, I especially like the stamp on there, it's a nice touch.

    Any issues with stability or the like with the loops on the Canute?

    None what so ever, it's a solid rig, stays put, doesn't shift and distributes the weight perfectly IMHO.

    I strongly 2nd Nates work. I also have a Canute for a DW RZ-10 and I carry it very comfortably. You will not be disappointed with his products or his work and his delivery is weeks for his top quality workmanship!

    I may be old fashioned, but I just don't trust clips of any kind. I use only holsters with leather loops and I've got 2 UBG Canutes. They're great and I highly recommend them.

    I have two Canutes, one for a Glock 17 and one for an XD9 (both with EGA's stamped on them!). Solid rigs, top quality work, very good looking leather. I carried a clip holster for a little while before ordering from Nate. I found as I shifted, turned, in and out of cars, etc. the clips would sometimes get pulled up on the belt. I'll only use holsters with loops now.

    I have a Canute for my 1911 plus a mag carrier and belt from Nate. He is a class act and makes quality stuff. You won't be sorry dealing with Nate. I prefer the belt loops to the metal clips.

    Do you notice any difference in comfort between the shorter barrel & longer barrel handguns? My Glock 26 (in a Canute) kinda jabs me in the hip & I find that I have to wear it a little further back than I would normally like to.

    I'm not sure if it's because of the open bottom or standard (25 degree) cant. I'm wondering if a longer barrel gun would prevent this?

    Yeah, with the P7, as mentioned HERE, I have to wear it just behind the point of the hip, it doesn't bother me as that's where I usually carry, 3 o'clock is not happening with that P7.
