Custom new old stock, Mike Taurisano of Tauris Leather, Low Profile IWB holster. This holster is brown horsehide leather and is worn inside the waistband right draw. Holster is for the Colt 1911 Commander 4 1/4". Loops fit a belt up to 2 1/2" and have directional snaps. Bottom front edge has some surface scratching you can see in the last photo if you look very closely..
The Low Profile Holster is designed with practical concealment in mind. This holster is expanded both fore and aft to provide a larger bearing surface against the body, and is formed to the contours of the body to provide more comfort and a less distinguishable outline. Also two mounting straps are provided which give a rock solid stability. Although there is a metal reinforced band at the mouth of the holster to aid in rehostering, this band does not encircle the holster, thus giving it a thinner profile which aids in its concealability.
