    Debating on a new 1911 holster

    So I switched out my Springfield Mil-Spec for a Colt Commander Lightweight model. So far I am very pleased with the switch.

    The only thing I am now noticing is that the forward slide serrations on the Commander are pulling small bits of leather from the holster. Is this common when using a leather holster with this sort of 1911? (The Mil-Spec did not have forward slide serrations). Right now I am just assuming it is the holster breaking in to the new 1911. Just want to ask for opinions from anyone who has seen this before.

    I am currently using a Galco Royal Guard.

    If you recommend switching holster, which one?

    Thanks everyone! All opinions are appreciated!

    PS: The fact that the Commander is lighter than the Mil-Spec has allowed me to start carrying again since my surgery!

    I'd say this is correct. The serrations are just clearing out a new path. Those are some sharp edges on the new Colts. A little de-horning will lessen this problem.

    Or you can just wait until the inside of your holster is completely smoothed!
