The 1911 has earned the reputation as the gun that won two world wars. An iconic piece of American history. No gun enthusiast’s collection is complete without one. There is no better place for a 1911 to sit, than in a top quality custom leather 1911 holster. With over 65 years of honing our craft, a Kirkpatrick Leather 1911 holster is therefore second to none in terms of quality, fit and comfort. They provide a secure way to carry your handgun and deliver exceptional concealment.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit and contoured to the hip for comfort. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our concealed carry designs secure your firearm while still providing instant access when needed. Our holsters are built to last.
