    I haven't seen them out anywhere but expect that someone is making them for them and they are marketing them under their name.
    Call them and ask them and you can tell if they are worthwhile....

    Copies, Knock Offs, I wouldn't be surprised if they said made in Taiwan on them.

    Well reading the review the guy who wrote it seems to say they are made in the shop at the company. I don't see anything that strikes me as a wow awsome job but they do have some good looking stuff and without putting my hands on it, I would say it looks pretty good. Some of the exotics look nice, not my style but nice(and price is pretty sky high).

    That said from what I've seen from some of the other super top shelf guys it looks under their level of finish work but I figure if they make good stuff they will still be around after a while(hard to judge from photos). If they don't then people won't buy it and there won't be anything to talk about;)

    I don't think Nighthawk would have emailed me with false information. That would destroy the companies credibility.

    Credibility about what? That they are making them or that they are copies?

    Before I bought my Pure Kustom...I bought one of there OWB's...I wanted one quick and they are in ARK...I got it the next day...pretty well made...but I couldn't conceal a full size 1911 to save my life...the butt stuck out at a weird angle...they were very nice about returning it..said it was probably my belt...It didn't do it on the PK or anyother holster that I've worn since. It wasn't bad quality...I think it is WAY overpriced...and I didn't see a made in Tawian stamp on it. The way the butt stuck out you could tell I was carrying when I walked into the room...I was very disappointed... it also didn't have enough forward cant... the PK solved my 1911 issues... hope this helps..Robbie

    I also inquired about a couple of exotic skinned ones and he told me they would be in in a couple of weeks..which leads me to believe that they don't make them in house....I believe I read somewhere that Badger Leather in MO was making them for them...but don't quote me...

    I'd rather my custom gun builder stick to guns and let the leathermasters make my holsters.

    I don't think it really matters where they are made. Their credibility is tarnished for making holsters, that are copies of a well known holster maker. They are Knock Offs!! There is nothing credible about that.
