Quality product. Fits 1911 commander size pistol perfectly. Good for the range or open carry for which the product was intended for. I was looking for a comfy, concealable and easy to put on holster for when I take the dog out for walks frequently. Only thing I don't like about it is that it rides low. Even with a winter coat on the bottom inch or two of the holster is visible. You would need a long coat to conceal it. In the end, its Probably going to end up in " the box of misfit holsters. "

I opted to purchase this holster from Amazon, rather than directly from Galco, because who knows how long it would have taken to get the holster when everything is "back ordered" on their website. I'm glad I did! Two days later, the holster arrived new in the box. I'd say the color in the picture is very close to the actual color of the leather -- sort of a reddish brown, which looks great. The leather seems to be of very high quality, and is VERY stiff. As is characteristic of leather holsters, the fit was nearly too small, but after following Galco's instructions for breaking it in it provides a nice, snug fit with plenty of retention to hold on to my pistol.

The paddle portion of the holster is very rigid as well, which helps it hook into your belt and stay in place. It's so rigid, in fact, that I've had difficulty removing the thing -- nothing a little practice won't fix. I can verify what others have said in reviews of this holster about how it "moves around a lot" on the belt line. The way the paddle is designed, it allows this holster to pivot slightly around the hook when jostled or bumped, changing the cant by a few degrees forward or backward. This might be undesirable for some applications, but I intend to use this as a range holster, and I don't mind the gun moving around a bit while I'm walking or doing other things. The holster does, however, always return to the center position after being bumped, so I've never had any problems drawing or reholstering. Overall, I'm very pleased with this holster -- five stars from me. However, I would caution anyone intending to use it for concealment or EDC...it might not be the best choice for those applications.

This is my third GALCO holsster. The one I use is a snap inside the pants model for my 3 1/4 inch barrel .45 Colt Commander. Wanted something easier to get on and off the body. The leather is tight and holdes onto the pants well. However, after wraping the weapon in saran wrap for 10 days and lubricating the holster with GALCO leather lube, the Colt will NOT PULL OUT. You have to pull the holster out and then pry it out. I will say you don't have to worry about accidentally losing the weapon while jogging.

It retains the weapon securely, but tends to "rock" back and forth as you move around in your daily activities. It does not work its way out of your belt or allow the weapon to slide out, so retention is decent, but it just feels like it rotates more than I prefer, and it is not designed to do so. Would like it better if the top part of the clip, that hangs over your belt line, were wider. Maybe that would stop the rocking.

I could not be happier with this purchase. In addition to "standard" Commander-sized 1911s, this holster fits the new Sig "Fastback Carry" or "Nightmare Carry" pistols, with a non-standard slide profile. Like all Galco holsters I have, this one is very nicely made with top-notch leather. What made the purchase better was, the Galco factory is back-ordered and said it would take about 4 weeks tor receive this same holster.... and the factory price was considerably more. Optics Planet had this holster in my hands in two days.

Galco quality products are top of the line! no one tops their quality and fitment on their products. I ordered the two magazine paddle along with this Holster and they are a great pair. The color, leather quality and fitment make this holster by far the best holster I own.

It would be hard to exceed the quality of components, construction and fit. I followed the break in procedure of placing the arm in a plastic bag as suggested in the literature that accompanied the holster and it resulted in a perfect fit. Good tension yet easy to draw. It also has clearance for the CT laser grips. I will be using this for a 4" Kimber Covert II.

Can't think of anything negative to say about it.

Also, the communication and service from Optics Planet was excellent.

This holster is very nice. I use it for my Kimber 1911 ACP. And the gun fits perfect. For the price it is perfect.
