My primary carry gun is the 4" GP100, which also has a set of oversized custom rosewood grips on it! My secondary is the 1911. Both guns are close to the same length, but the GP is a little wider, (but not much) due to the cylinder. Now I will admit, it takes some time to get these things adjusted right. But once you get it adjusted so the gun fits close to your body, with no "flopping" around... you're good to go! It can be frustrating, I know. But it's well worth the effort once you find that perfect adjustment. It took almost a solid week to get my GP adjusted the way I like it! A lot of trial and error involved. But it's worth it now!
The holster has tiedowns on both sides. The holster side has a heavy plastic flap that slips through the belt, and has a stiff snap. The off side has a strap with a snap. Once the holster is adjusted, and tiedowns are in place, there is no weight on your pants! It's all spread across your shoulders, and it's quite comfortable. Just hope you don't have to make an emergency run to the bathroom, then you might be in trouble! ha!
I've tried the IWB/OWB holsters for both of these guns (GP & 1911) and while they do work very well, they're just not very comfortable to me.Read more ›
It does fit quite well after a bit of adjustment and tinkering, but the retention strap makes it difficult to draw quickly (it runs a bit long and tends to get in the way of the draw for me).
The other issue I have is that the holster covers the trigger on the body side, but doesn't on the external face. This could just be my pistol, but is still a concern for daily (condition 1) carry. I plan on having a bit of material placed to complete a trigger guard, but until then it has to stay in the closet.
Overall, a decent holster, but needs some work to make it truly useful (and safe).
This was used to carry a Ruger Redhawk on the trail. It was comfortable & gave no irritation after a day of hiking.
The only thing I would improve is to make the holster angle adjustable & not so vertical.

Wonderful piece of "Concealed Carry" equipment. I have an exact match of this shoulder holster for my 1911 45 ACP. I use that one for "City Carry". Read morePublished 12 days ago by Phil Crocker

Bought mine for a full size 1911. Holster is a bit bulky, too narrow. Doesn't even cover the trigger on a 1911. Straps don't adjust very long. I'm tall and barrel chested. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Martin
The snap on the holster side is a PITA to get snapped and is easy to catch and unsnap.
My other one I own for a different caliber is great.
Had high hopes but it tore within my third use. the belt loop strap tore. If they were to redesign it by not sewing the nylon strap right at the end of the strap it would'nt have... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Cesar Riojas

The style and fit is just what I was looking for. I got a size 3 for a desert eagle .44 mag. Initially it seemed like a snug fit, but it adjusted just fine and pulls out with ease. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Cynthia Dominguez
