For the chosen few of you that carry full size steel iwb, what's your go to belt and carry rig?

For tuber ware and light weight commanders, g code iwb has been my go to. Possibly interested in iwb for a full size.

I wear a Boxter Tactical Apogee belt (no longer made). Ive been very happy with it.

I hear that the Ares Aegis Enhanced belt is another great option.

As far as holsters go I prefer Garrett Industries leather lined Kydex.

Currently carry a Beltman belt for a 1911 Government model. Like it a lot but, Would also carry it on a Tucker Gun Leather Ranger model belt.

When I carried a full size it was in a Milt Sparks Nexus on a Milt Sparks belt. Now I carry a compact 1911 in a Criterion on that same belt, but I wouldn't have a problem going back to the bigger gun. The compact just fits my hand better.

Have a crossbreed crossover gun belt. Works good. Quick and easy to adjust. I did find it to be a little thick and stiff even after using it for several years. I switched to graith specialist gun belt. It’s light, easy to adjust and keeps the pistol tight against the body. No issues with the gun moving around. The belt contacts all of holster leaving no gaps. It’s the only belt I will buy from now on. Best belt gun belt I have owned hands down. For holster I use a milt sparks ss ll and steathgear ventcore standard. I carry a Les Baer TRS and Dan Wesson Valor.

I splurged on a full elephant hide belt from R Grizzle and now I hardly ever wear any other belt now. I carry a DW VBob IWB and OWB

I've very recently started carrying a full size steel gun in a MS SS on a couple of beltman kydex core belts. Very happy so far.

A&G Custom Gunleather belts. I’ve bought one of their “Quick Ship” belts directly and have procured a couple more of their belts via our own Classifieds section.

My IWB holster is a Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 with one of a handful of full-size 1911s.

Kramer leather....great belts ...and better holsters. I like his "double thick" belt because I wear Levi's 99% of the time...

Horsehide ... & in his holsters I like the forward FBI tilt...

5" Wilson combat Protrctor model, full sized...my primary carry gun.

I use a Beltman Dual Layer Quick Ship with the internal stiffener. I pair it with a Milt Sparks VM2 and have no worries, complaints or back aches when carrying a full steel CCO. I know it’s not full size, as inquired about by the OP, but still not a light hand gun. I can’t heap enough praise onto the belt and the holster in this set up. Just about perfect in my opinion.
