Safariland® 568 Custom Fit Handgun Holsters
Safariland 568 1911A1 5" SA Loaded
Received this holster last week, and got around to fitting the 1911A1 to it. As I have 2 similar 586 holster for other pistols, I am impressed with this model. It claims to fit a large variety of pistols, and after just a few minutes of adjustment, my 1911A1 fits really good. A inexpensive paddle holster for the action range that works great. A really good buy.

Easy to adjust for a variety of weapons
I've had this holster for several years. I originally purchased it for my wife's S&W M&P9 compact, but she didn't care for the paddle design as she prefers a belt loop. I inherited it after that and I've used it to carry a couple of Glocks (35 and 23), a 1911, and occasionally, her M&P. It's comfortable, extremely stable, and retains each weapon adequately for normal off duty carry. The retention is only passive, with a friction fit, but that's enough unless you're chasing bad guys, which should require a duty holster anyway. I can't think of anything negative to say about it, except it's a bit bulky if you need to conceal the weapon, but then again, most OWB and paddle back holsters are.

IDPA legal, confortable conceal carry
This is my everyday concealed carry holster. I carry a Glock 17 and it is not bulky even with the bigger handgun. The holster is smooth and does not catch on clothing or anything else. Great passive retention, but I'm not chasing bad guys...

This is by far the best holster I've ever owned. It's very comfortable, securely holds the weapon, and it stays in place when the weapon is drawn. It's lined to protect the weapon, and it's IDPA legal. I own one of these holsters for each handgun I own. I highly recommend it.
