    My custom low-buck IWB holster and belt

    I thought I would share some pictures of my custom made low cost holster and belt. They were low cost because I made them myself, I think I've probably got about $10-$15 dollars at the most into the two items. This is actually the second holster that I've made. The first was just intended as a trial and I'm very satified with how this one turned out. I made the belt loop locations adjustable to be able to change the angle of the gun as well as the height. I made the belt double thickness to support the weight of the weapon and I've found it to be very comfortable to wear.

    Also pictured is my parkerized springer 1911 with my first attempt at homemade custom grips. These are walnut with a linseed oil finish. I can tell that grip-making is going to be addictive!

    Very, very nice. I like the adjustable loops.

    Nice job! Your IWB is a really good design. I spent a lot of time and money testing several ideas before I came up with a holster that works along a similar design concept.

    There is a good thread on The High Road forum about custom exotic wood 1911 grips in the accessories section. You should check it out and talk to Sarge for some cool ideas to try on your next set.

    Thumbs up

    When I see such threads I always think, "Yea right!" But I AM impressed here. It is difficult to think this is your second try.
    Of course there are such things as how securely it holds the gun, and how good is the leather for long term use.

    Having said that I think the work is extremely good for a beginner.
    Keep up the good work.

    Regards,
    Jerry
