Second Holster, First Pancake...holster That Is.

Recommended Posts

Second holster. Thanks to all the help from the folks on this forum. A truly classy bunch. This is 6-7oz. Lined/laminated with 4-5 oz. A truly thick beast. Hand stitched with the thickest nylon I could find. #554 soft nylon, thought it was bonded when I ordered it, but turned out to be soft. Oh well. The gun didn't quite seat as far down as I had hoped, but the retention is great. I can shake that fully loaded 45 upside down without slipping, and when it's on the waist it draws great. Adjusted the pattern, and the one I'm working on now fared much better. My only real complaint is that the thread on the lining is starting to wear at the top of the holster at the trigger guard. I cut a grove,but that thread is so darn thick. I love the look of thick thread, but I had to scale back for my current build. Anyway, as usual, let me have it. All the criticism on the last one was greatly appreciated, as well as the positive feedback, I must admit. Thanks again, and in case you were wondering about #1, I've posted the link to that thread.

Looks good, the only thing I can see is the seating depth that you mentioned. I'd prefer it if it sat all the way in the holster but shouldn't be much of an issue as it is. Nice work.

Looks very good. Clean edges. Good stitching with the rope:).

With a good gun belt, that will ride OK. Covering the trigger guard is a controversial item but with a 1911, ain't no problem in my opinion. 'Course I have carried a Colt lw Commander for over 40 years.

Not my gun or holster. Typical early 1900s.
