  1. Thank you Gordon! I was able to find an aluminum 4.25-inch mold. Speaking with the gentleman I bought it from, he recommends JB Weld steel putty. Hopefully it'll hold for a while. I don't have a press so hopefully it'll hold up to my hand-molding. It should last longer than some of the 'yellow' molds anyway lol. It's one of those things that I'm only doing it because I have an itch that needs to be scratched. I'm seeing all these folks picking up the S.A. Emissary 1911s and I can't make a holster for them. I may never be able to unless Blue Guns starts making a mold, but I'm going to give it a try.
  2. Thank you! I'll take a look. Sale is Pending as of Sunday, 6 March.
  3. Up for sale is a "like new" Cobra Class 26 sewing machine from Leather Machine Co. I bought this machine in May 2021 for $2,354.00 USD. I am looking to sell outright for $2,200.00 USD. I will also consider trades for either a Cobra Class 3 or Cobra Class 4. Other brands will be considered as well. No shipping. I will consider delivery up to 4 hours driving distance from Richlands, NC 28574. If delivery is requested, a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 USD plus an additional delivery fee of $200.00 will be required. This machine has only been used during initial set up and one test holster. I am so used to operating my Class 4 that I just don't like the 26. I have decided that I would just rather have another Class 4 or a Class 3 set up to do what I want instead of the Class 26. Pick up price: $2,200.00 USD Delivery price: $2,400.00 USD ($500.00 non-refundable deposit required) Additional pictures are available (I was limited here by file size) Please contact me direct: Jason Ingle Ingle Gun Leather 910-333-6305 jasoningle@inglegunleather.com
  4. ISO an aluminum 1911 mold. Prefer a 4.25-inch model.
  5. Thanks for the input. I have considered something along these lines. But that's not my first course of action. That's why I'm here asking if anyone knows of any molds yet.
  6. Do you mean Maker's Leather Supply? If so, I'm not seeing it. They only carry Blue Guns. Blue Guns does not produce a 1911 with a square trigger guard. They make a Staccato 2011 which has a square trigger guard. But that's not at all what I want. Big difference between Springfield Emissary 1911s and the Staccato 2011s.
  7. Does anyone know of a source that is making a 1911 mold with a square trigger guard? With the release of the Springfield Armory Emissary line, I'd really like to be able to make holsters for them. I've already contacted John at Ring's and there's not enough requests for them to justify producing molds yet.
  8. Thank you! No, I don't think I could hand stitch much anymore. I use a Cobra Class 4.
  9. I definitely had to manipulate it some from the inside to keep it from locking up.
  10. It was pushed out some from the inside after molding. Draws just fine. With the flat side of a Tandy stainless steel folder. https://tandyleather.com/products/craftool-pro-foldercreaser-stainless-steel
  11. Thank you. No press, no vacuum. Wet molded while the holster was wet with dye. I dip-dye. This one has been dyed twice. Once when the leather was cut, then a second time for molding.
  12. Thanks! Wickett and Craig veg-tan, split to 8oz, 'holstered' with pasted flesh
  13. Here's a classic all black pancake-style I recently finished for a client's 3.5-inch 1911. I really like making these without the Reinforcement Panels on the front.
