Another handmade custom leather holster from Tin Badge Leather!
This offering is designed to fit the popular 1911 style Government (5" barrel) weapon in a pancake styled holster. This style fits tight against the body and is easily concealed.
Like all of my holsters this is made from heavy 8/9 oz. Hermann Oak leather. The leather is cut from patterns, shaped and then in this particular one dyed in a Moccasin brown color. The reinforcement patch is then made from crocodile embossed cowhide in USMC black and stitched to the holster for not only looks but durability and comfort for years to come.
The holster is then put together with heavy bonded polyester cord in a saddle stitch with a commercial stitching machine. Belt loops are then punched to fit a gun belt up to 1 5/8 inch. The edges are then sanded, beveled and burnished so that nothing snags and for a finished and professional look. The holster is then wet molded for the specific weapon and allowed to dry. Once dry, coats of a weather resistant finish is applied and again allowed to dry.
If you're going to carry a weapon, why not carry it in a nice, well built holster that not only is functional but also looks good?
