    I carry a fs 1911 daily. I have had different holsters IWB, OWB, sholder holster, etc. I ordered a Comptac. The first was for an XD 45 full size. Love the holster. Then I ordered a Comtac for my 1911.

    After wearing the 1911 and Comptac combo I thought that something was wrong because the XD snapped into place in its Comptac. I thought that my 1911 Comptac was not doing its job.

    After looking it over and adjusting the tention I came to realize that the tention of the holsters leather against my body, my belt and the adjustment of tention I made on the holster, the gun is very secure. I wear the Comptac daily.

    The guys on this site know holsters. Good luck.

    But thats just me there are many great holster makers out there in which to choose from.

    I have a c-tac for mine, It's a little hard on the finish over time, Probably no worse than leather. Key is to keep the grime out of the holster.

    Buy with 100% confidence from this man! I have 5 of his holsters and they are top quality and will last a lifetime. Was going to sell my HBE DC Special for my Springer but thought better of it even though I'm now packing a H&K P7.

    You will not regret buying from Eric!

    Here's the DC Special, Com III and Pro TL for my 36, all HBE's.

    Pro TL - Best holster I've ever carried my partner with


    DC Special and 1990 Springer Standard (same as your Mil-Spec with a few mod's)


    HBE COM III - Fantastic holster! Sold it as I wanted to keep my 77 HP Pristine


    77 BHP tuned for action - Bought for 200 something when I first went to work in the Jensie coal mine in Ohio in 1977. Had to show it off as it's my favorite and first Semi.

    What I would look for is a quality maker and the style that suits your needs.

    Given the weight/size of the weapon...most people tend to go for the offset loop style IWB...meaning the loops are on both sides of the gun. This makes it more stable, carries the weight better and is thinner than other designs.

    Make sure it has a body shield to keep the hammer/b-tail away from you...just for your comfort.

    Materials are many and there are many great makers and designs out there.
    Get recommendations from whomever you trust and weigh your choices....

    Thats the best I can do............God bless

    It has been said before, but it is really a matter of taste and how the holster fits the contours of your own body, and how much time and money you want to invest. I'm kinda old school, and have a nice Don Hume leather IWB for my daily carry 1911 Government Model. It is not fancy, but it clips securely and fits anywhere from 2:00 to 5:00 on a good belt. I picked up the holster at a gun show and have been happy with it ever since, but I am not a LEO so my standards and requirements are not as rigorous as those folks. The holster girl gave me a nice tip to "take some gun oil and oil up the inside of it" and then put the piece in the holster.

    I would NOT take holster girls advice and oil up ANY well made holster either inside or outside. Perfect way to ruin a quality holster. Do nothing but wipe mine down on the outside with a damp cloth and call it quits.

    Oil the weapon, not the holster.

    I am another one who has to say that Pure Kustom's Black ops is the only way to go....I bought it as an OWB thinking the IWB would be cool to try sometimes...I have never carried it OWB...love carrying it IWB...most comfortable holster I have ever worn....and Rocky is a top notch guy to deal with and I bet ya he has one already made up.... so the waiting won't be an issue....

    Now for the good news. You will probably acquire somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 holsters until you decide what you like best. I have one on order for my 1911 from the following. NM Holsters - Home

    Looks like a well made holster and gets good reviews. Will I give it a good review? Only time will tell.

    I have found that the Kydex (plastic) holsters do wear the guns surface much more that does leather, especially if it is a blued or parkerized finish.

    Yep, SG, you're right... but Holster Girl was pretty cute and, well, when a cute girl tells you to oil up her holster you just can't tell her no... but I digress.

    Nothing like a pretty holster girl and oil to make a man feel younger Tom

    Went through the same deal at Sturgis bike week with a couple of "Camel Girls". Bought 2 cartons of smokes. Pics did not go over good upon my safe return home and my wife kindly developed the rolls of film with me smothered between two beautiful, curvy blondes.
