    Yup. Another friggen holster thread.

    I am in search of the perfect leather holster. Said holster would be right side draw, IWB with sweat shield for a STI Costa Carry VIP so a railed 1911 with a 4.15” barrel. Other condition, I am looking for it to sit high, real high.

    I like a loose holster as I wear my belt tight so an adjustment screw for custom draw tension would be awesome.

    1.75 “ belt is preferable but 1.5” is ok.

    Does this exist?

    Unicorn hide accents?
    Tall order but interesting, following.
    Would definitely fit the bill.

    Thanks and if someone wants to morph all these holster threads into its own section or one mega thread, I am fine with that. I just did not want to step on someone else’s request.

    Not sure I've seen any looking for the same.
    Something like that could work with my Specialist as well.
    Biggie is actually finding one without having a ton of "almosts". ;)

    It sounds like a one-off to me, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a craftsman to make it, it may just be expensive but worth it.

    Closest I have seen was HBE leather or pure kustom holster

    Aside from Pure Kustom and 5Shot leatherI don’t know if any other companies making leather holsters for STIs. I happen to have a kydex AIWB holster for the STI you are referencing if that’s of any interest. Holsters for those guns are a bit of a unicorn hunt.

    Ditto above. Garret Industries if you can accept leather lined kydex instead of all leather. Their holsters are fantastic and last I recall they cover all of the STI models.

    I have Ted Blocker down in Portland make my custom holsters. He does great work. 20161206_101706.jpg You can give them a call and discuss what you would like. Here is my Ted Blocker IWB for my Bob Marvel Browning Hi Power. Nothing but quality here!

    I think Tucker makes IWB holsters for pretty much any STI model. I have a DC-1 that I use for IWB with an STI DVC Carry. I like it very much. It is adjustable, but I don't wear it particularly high, so I cannot say how it would work in that mode. Tucker also is very fast and has excellent customer service.

    Ordered one from a fellow addict on here at S&S Leatherworks. Pretty excited. I made some concessions like tension screw but as I said...I am pretty excited.

    Thanks but as I mentioned in the message above yours, I ordered one from a fellow addict on here and feel really good about the order. I have not received it yet obviously but his work looks clean and efficient.

    Carl is a master of his craft and a really nice guy! I'd enjoy buying him a beer.
