Gibson Star Basket for 4 or 4.25″ Commander 1911. ***SOLD!***.

Gibson Gunleather and Bruce Gibson Design hand-stamped Star Basket, right-hand, high-ride belt slide pancake holster for the Commander length 1911 with 4, or 4.25-inch barrels.

The Star Basket pattern and border is not embossed–it is laid out and hand-stamped one tiny star at a time.  This process takes time, and hand-crafted attention to detail.

The sight track is molded in to accommodate the larger sights on modern pistols, and the stitching is flared to eliminate “sticking” or hanging up on the draw.

Retention is excellent.  Suitable for open or concealed carry.

Full trigger guard coverage, and cutaway for a comfortable, full-firing grip while holstered.

This holster is designed to fit dual-layer gun belts 1.5″ wide, and 1/4″ thick. This is a high-ride, open carry or concealed holster with a 15-degree muzzle-rear rake or cant.

The Natural oil finish will darken somewhat over time with exposure to sunlight.  A lot of folks describe this as “patina,” and it’s a really cool natural occurrence with veg-tan leather.

All we use is Premium American Hermann Oak vegetable tanned leather.  All proudly made in the USA.  Hermann Oak has been in the leather business in St. Louis, Missouri since 1881.  There is none better.

Heavy wheat colored nylon machine stitching.

Hand-fitted and hand-detailed. Holster edges are hand-beveled, waxed, finished, and burnished.

This holster is in-stock and ships via US Postal Service Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.

Satisfaction is guaranteed.

Replica gun, mags and other goodies are not included.

Questions are always welcome! And again, satisfaction is guaranteed.

Thank you for looking!

$125.00 with Free Priority Mail shipping with Delivery Confirmation and tracking.

Busy week. Blessed with a healthy to-do list.

Happily busy.  Two words I’ve found that tend to go together.  A complimentary combination.

The holster above being modeled by one of my Kimber 1911’s is a right-hand, high-ridin’, 15-degree muzzle-rear belt slide in Natural, premium, Hermann Oak leather.  It’s got a molded-in site track, and flared stitching at the muzzle to eliminate any front site hang-up issues.  It’s hand-detailed for excellent retention, and what I hope are decent looks.  Belt slots are set for a dual-layer 1.5″ wide gunbelt.  These are built to accommodate a 4″, 4.25″ or 5″ 1911.  With a 5″ barrel you’ll have about 3/4″ of muzzle exposed–like the photo above.  I’ve built a bunch of these this week, so if you want one, shoot me a message, or an e-mail to BruceGibson@aol.com .  $125.00 plus $9.95 USPS Priority Mail Shipping with Delivery Confirmation.  These are in-stock and ready to ship.  If my stock levels get low, I’ll update, but for now, I have a bunch of ’em.

This one’s carrying a stainless Kimber Pro Raptor II with a 4-inch barrel.  It’s a tad-bit smaller than the first one at the top, but it will accept a barrel length of 4″, 4.25″ or 5″.  15-degree rake, right-hand OWB belt slide.  Always premium Hermann Oak leather.  This one’s Natural Oil, and it’s had some exposure to Florida sunshine.  It’s got a head-start on the “patina” everybody’s talking about nowadays.  Stitching is heavy white nylon, and all edges are hand beveled, polished, waxed and burnished.  Painstakingly (and sometimes painfully) hand-moulded and detailed for awesome retention.  This little guy is $125.00, plus $9.95 USPS Priority Mail shipping with Delivery Confirmation.  I’ve got several of these in-stock and ready to roll outta here–if that changes, of course I’ll update the blog here.

If you want one of either, or both, shoot me an e-mail (BruceGibson@aol.com) and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice.  Shipments to Florida get tagged with another 6% for Sales Tax–I’ll go ahead and apologize to my fellow Floridians in advance.

Thanks for the look!  Here’s a couple more pics.
