    Ordered a rafters IWB holster for my 1911

    Well I went and did it ordered a rafters IWB holster in black cowhide for my 1911 today. I'am really looking forward to it coming I should have it thursday or friday at the lateist. I'am now wondering if anyone here has one of these or has carried a 1911 in one? If so any pics you can post to tide me over until then? From what I've read about these rigs they appear to be a very good value,and if its as good as thair belt I have I'am in for a treat I think. Well just wanted to share with you all thanks in advance for any feedback guys.

    i have one in black sharkskin. their work is very good. their holsters are quite comfortable. they hold their form quite well, i've even inadvertantly squashed mine for a few hours and it came right back to form immediately.

    Ordered one for my Springfield yesterday. They said 2 to 3 weeks if not in stock. I added the sweatshield. I have a belt and OWB holster from them and it's nice and comfortable.

    I have a brown IWB with shield from them. It seems to be very comfortable when wearing it around the house, but I never carry my 1911; so, I can't speak to how it wears over the long term.

    They said they had a couple in stock for a full size 1911 so I guess I got lucky then. And yep pics will be here as soon as I get it. I was kinda hoping for someone here to post me a pic of thair rafters IWB rig in the mean time,anyone here that can do this? Also would you say these holsters sit pretty low inside the waistband?

    I have never heard of this holster manufacturer. It looks pretty good from the picture. Could someone please post their website. I googled it and could not find it. I look forward to seeing the pics of one with a 1911

    My IWB holster came in today. They said 2 to 3 weeks and it took 3 days. Here's some better quality pics. I still think I want Kevin at KD Holster to make a show holster with snakeskin also.

    I hope to try mine out Saturday. I've been using their OWB until I get time to work with the IWB holster.
