Shoulder Holster For Full Size 1911

Shoulder Holster For Full Size 1911


*Design update: the straps on the holster will now connect to a solid steel ring in the back, instead of a square piece of leather. This allows the straps to adjust easily, and is much stronger overall.

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

The holster features shoulder straps that are adjustable via 4 buckles. It features a holster for the gun, loop to attach holster to your belt and a double mag pouch.

The holster and mag pouch are made of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide, and are hand sewn together and wet molded to ensure proper fit. The holster and mag pouch are both secured via snap. The mag pouch has two snaps in order to accommodate magazines with buttplates.

The holster can be ordered in vertical or horizontal orientation , Horizontal is slightly easier to draw, but is less concealable.

The holster is designed with Right Handed shooters in mind, but can be made left handed, just let me know in the comments when ordering.

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 rail, light, or other difference in design, let me know and I can make adjustments accordingly.

We offer both silver and black snaps. Let us know in the order notes when ordering what color you would like. If you do not note your preference we will give you the snap that bests suits the color of your sheath (black with black, silver with brown etc.)

As always, customization is available. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

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.

Does the knife come with the sheath?

No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

Second holster i buy from them. Super nice work. Thanks again!!

Just arrived, so haven't put it through the rigors, but it's excellent craftsmanship, very high quality, and comfortable.

Mr. Stell is great to work with! I purchased this Shoulder Rig and needed some custom things done to an already custom order, and Mr. Stell took care of everything! The quality is outstanding! I have used store bought shoulder systems before and they always felt cheap, but the Shoulder Rig that GrommetsLeatherCraft makes is true quality. I truly feel like it will withstand my abuse and I will still be able to hand it over to one of my son’s when the time comes. I will definitely purchase from him again in the near future, maybe I’ll get a black one too.

Excellent CS - emailed to inform it would be a little late - which I hadn't noticed. So, timely shipping. The quality of everything I've ordered from here is high end - custom pieces or boutique stuff would cost twice as much - these guys just do great work.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my fiance. He has several shoulder holsters, but I love the fully leather look. He has worn it every day since Christmas, and he LOVES it. Every time he puts it on he tells me how comfortable it is. Safe to say it was his favorite Christmas gift, and is his favorite holster as well.
