This comfortable shoulder holster is modeled after the U.S. military standard issue 1911 shoulder holster given to officers, pilots and tankers around the time of WWII. Crafted from a quality oiled pull-up leather exterior that results in a soft and flexible shoulder rig with a rugged "distressed" appearance and fully lined in a premium top-grain veg tan for the protection of your firearm. 

Optional single single magazine pouch fit to shoulder strap available for $45

Hellhound gun leathers, belts and holsters, are works of art that are made to order and handcrafted one at a time in our workshop in Utah. These are not mass produced or made ahead of time and each holster is carefully hand cut and crafted to fit your firearm. We source our leather from US tanneries and none of our leather products are outsourced or manufactured outside our workshop. 

This item is made to order, so crafting time may take up to two weeks. Please also be aware that, depending on the season, there may also be a wait-list of over a month. Please see our FAQs for current lead times! If you're in a hurry and need the item before that, contact me and we'll do what we can to help you out.

We understand that purchasing a holster for your gun is a very personal process and we invite you to call Gavin directly at 385-707-3751 with any questions, concerns or custom requests. If you do not see your firearm listed in the options, but like this style, give us a call and we'll get you set up with one!

You are responsible to let us know if your firearm has any modifications. Depending on the firearm and modification, you may be required to provide us with additional information, measurements or tracings. We want to be sure that you are 100% satisfied with your holster and that it fits your gun like a glove, so we will do all we can to accommodate firearm mods.
