We make best leather 1911 OWB holster because we carry 1911’s too.

With its long history and iconic design, the 1911 is one of the most important handguns in the last 100 years.  Originally designed by John Browning for the U.S. military.  The 1911 is still one of the most popular guns for everything from bullseye shooting to every day carry.  It’s simple design and reputation for accuracy has made this beloved pistol a favorite for many.  Over the years the extreme popularity of this firearm has prompted many manufacturers to producing their own version of the pistol.  When it comes to modern day pistols, some of today’s finest firearms are the 1911’s being produced by custom manufacturers.  Companies like Wilson Combat, Night Hawk,  Les Baer, Turnbull, STI Staccato all make 1911 that are extremely accurate, reliable and beautiful.  

At Kirkpatrick Leather we are fans of the 1911 pistol.  Many of us here own and carry one for self-defense.  My dad, who started Kirkpatrick Leather Co., used one in WWII and for most of his life thereafter.  I personally have a number of them and many of the holster makers here carry 1911’s too.  We collect them; we use them for everyday carry, competition and hunting.  And we are always looking for ways to improve our 1911 holsters.  We believe our familiarity with the design helps us communicate with you to make sure you get the perfect 1911 holster.

While there are many companies offering 1911 holsters, most offer a one size fits all solution.  Unfortunately, unlike other modern pistols, 1911’s are available from many manufacturers and custom shops with a lot of options.  For 1911 holsters to fit correctly, a one size fits all approach may not be for you.  

Our holsters are made one at a time for the specific 1911 you carry.  All of our 1911 holsters are available for either cocked and locked carry or hammer down carry.  They can also be custom made for barrel lengths from 3.0” to 6.0”.  If your pistol has custom options like an over-sized safety, suppressor sights, threaded barrel or if it is equipped with a red dot sight.  Its because of all of these options, our love of 1911’s and our years of experience that we believe we make the best leather OWB 1911 holster.  Give us a call and we can make a beautiful, custom leather 1911 holster for you.
