Tanker Holster For Full Size 1911

Tanker Holster For Full Size 1911


Shipping to United States: Free

This listing is for a handmade leather tanker holster for a 1911.

It is similar in style to the tanker holsters used in WWII, with a few "improvements" such as Chicago screw retention on the back strap instead of leather ties, and steel D rings to allow the straps to pivot comfortably.

The belt loop and retention strap are closed via Snaps as a standard, but I can substitute Sam Browne studs if you want.

The Buckles and rings are steel as a standard, but can be done in several other colors if desired. Message me for options.

The color in the photo is the "Dark Brown" option.

Each holster is fitted to a Springfield Armory mil spec 1911, and the leather has a bit of flex, so it should fit most models from most companies. If your gun has a railot, light, or other difference in design, let me know and I can make adjustments accordingly.

When ordering, please include a measurement of the circumference of your cheat to ensure proper fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

Everything we offer is made to order, so will take a minimum of one week to ship out.

Why so expensive?

Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

Exactly what I needed. Superb craftsmanship...I'll be ordering again soon.

Really well made. Fast delivery. I would buy from this vendor again, no question.

The holster I bought was beautiful, gave it to an uncle for Christmas and he loved it. Seller helped me by getting the item out quickly so it arrived on time for gift giving too :)
