Some years ago I had Rusty build me a competition holster that I could also use as a duty holster, if only my agency would allow 1911's. My agency never allowed them but the holster saw some competition use before IDPA became popular...........fastest thumb break I've ever used (mostly because of the muzzle forward cant) but it could also be used w/o the thumb break by tightening the tension screw, which is how it got most of it's use. This isn't the belt I used with it but shows the cant.......
Will hold any Govt. model with or w/o a rail and with or w/o a red dot.........Don't think Rusty makes these anymore, and remember, I'm a lefty.

I wear a C. Rusty Sherrick modified Vertical High Ride Scabbard. I had Rusty customize the holster by including the Tom Givens Speed Draw cut out. This opens the front of the holster approx. three quarters of the way down the ejection port.
I've been wearing this holster at work for approx. 18 months as well to several pistol classes such as the Rangemaster Instructor Development Course.

The holster is extremely comfortable with my Hackathorn Commander (light weight) during a 10 hour day of in and out of the car. It is discreet as the belt loop in the rear (ala Bruce Nelson Professional) tucks the grip into the body. The fit is very good as the weapon remains secured during open hands training. The holster remains open for ease to re-holster. The front sight channel keeps the front sight clean for presentation. Craftsmanship is on par with some of the best leather makers. I recommend Rusty for this holster. Be patient.

At work I wear two pistols. The Hackathorn Commander on the right is in the Sherrick horsehide. The CQB Compact LW-LR is in a Milt Sparks 55BN crossdraw. The double mag case is Sparks also. Another great holster company. JW

Very nice looking setup, thanks for the review. I’m certainly looking for a “high and tight” option and wondered on whether this would trade off comfort, retention, etc. but sounds like you’ve had good results.

Stumbled upon C. Rusty Sherrick recently, anybody had any experience with their holsters? If so what models and what’s the review?
I Realize this is an older post but if anyone is still interested, I have several Sherrick holsters. His stuff is outstanding. I've carried a full sized pistol for a living for almost 40 years and have used his stuff for a long time. It wears well and the fit and finish are great. The horsehide seems to hold it's shape and fit much longer than cowhide leather. I'm getting ready to order another from him for a Sig 365XL. I'm afraid the full sized Gov't model is getting heavy in my old age.
