The M-11 Custom Leather Concealed Carry Holsters is built on the same leather as the M-11 Hardcore holsters... With the exception of the exotic skin that adds beauty and wear resistance in the areas that make contact with your belt. The M-11 Series of gun holsters are what I recommend the most! They are my most effective and most comfortable concealment holsters period...

Below is small amount of what goes into the construction.

Select tight-grain leather on the left is what we choose for the loops. Not the leather on the right. That is waist.

We leave nothing un-finished

Wet-molded loops.

Warmed to retain shape.

Ready for an oil-bath so they will last years and years without drying out or cracking.

Coming out of the bath.

Dipped in a mix of solution for added strength and longevity.


Notice the rigidity and strength after we take them through the steps we do.

Thick leather is chosen.

Ready for a holster; Yours?

Before shot....Back side of leather re-inforcement piece that you never see.

Same solution we use the for loops is soaked in to this piece that positively keep sweat or moisture from leaching through this spot where alot of body sweat can form from your torso.

Final result! Are we giving away secrets that other makers can benifit from?? Sure but why not, then their customers can benefit as well.

Edges waxed & burnished the true way saddle makers do it.

Comparison between top (partial finished) vs. bottom not finished.

Track marks left from stitching machines. Not good. Often companies don't bother removing all of them for sake of time.

Stitch holes tight and leather smooth. It takes more time and we produce less but we can't resist doing all we know. No shortcuts taken. It is hard to mass produce this.

No collapse here. This is a 25 lb. weight resting on a M-11 that fits a 1911 with Crimson-Trace grips. Strength and beauty is acheived with leather.


Burnished the old fashion labor intensive way. Not a painted finish that most production holster have.

Results seen here.

Burnishing a western holster to illustrate more how we do it.

Finishing the interior for a custom touch.

Polishing by hand the interior leather fibers. Your gun's finish will love it.

A secret to a long life in a holster. It takes hours to do this single step. But you benefit. We don't skip it and charge you the same. Many holster companies don't oil holsters like this.

Captioned photo

It all starts here.

Prior to oiling.

During the oiling. Oil is settleing in the pores bringing out a beautiful depth that can only be achieved with oiling.

Same holster after oiling. Notice the darker depth with this important step.
