Threaded Barrel/Red Dot Sight/Aftermarket Sights

**What is a red dot sight? Type of non-magnifying reflector (or reflex) sight for firearms, and other devices that require aiming, that gives the user an aimpoint in the form of an illuminated red dot.
**FAQ: If your Gun Make & Model option has the weapon and RMR together (ie: Sig Sauer P320 Full Size RX) please choose NO, so you do not get charged twice for the same attachment.
**Please type the Red Dot that you below
**If you have any aftermarket sights (night sights, suppressor sights, big dot sights) higher sights than normal, than please choose “YES” and specify your make and model
**Please keep in mind that once the order is received, the manufactures will check over the order to make sure all the options that you choose will function properly when manufacturing. Some options may not work properly when manufactured. This is something that we may not know until the holster is being built.

Grip Laser

If your laser is a grip laser and mounted on the grip of the weapon than please choose “YES” and specify your make and model of your laser.

Shooting Hand * 

Color * 

Stitching Color * 

Wanna spice up your holster a little, or have a different holster than anyone else? Make the holster unique and custom by adding some color stitching to the front of the holster only. Each color is made with heavy duty nylon thread, to resist easy tearing or dry rot damage. Keep in mind that colored thread may affect the color of the holster, the holster could be lighter or darker because its a different dying processing and so the dye will not run onto the thread.

Stitching * 

Double stitching is a second line of stitching. This will aid in better retention and long term use of the holster. (extra $15.99)

Holster Attachment * 

Tuckable Spring Steel Clip come on the holster, this clip requires a sturdy 1-1/2″ gun belt 1/4″ for the best function of this holster. Ulticlip3+ has a flat mounting area with 2 slots and 1 hole allowing for multiple mounting options; does not require a belt, mounts directly onto the pants and the belt would go on top of the clip for better concealment. Ulticlip XL is the world’s first multi-tool holster clip and locking steel belt loop. No longer do you have to choose between a holster clip or belt loop; with Ulticlip XL you can have both.

Internal Liner

When we craft a holster we use the smooth bull hide leather on the outside and the ruffer portion on the inside. When someone adds a liner we add a second layer of thinner bullhide leather and use the smooth side inside the holster with the two ruff sides against each other. This process is to enable is a smooth drawing of the weapon, instead of suede having some friction when drawing. Secondly, suede tends to not mold as easy on the inside as the bullhide, enabling less retention. The bullhide leather molds with great detail and definition in the leather. The bullhide leather is not as thick as the suede causing better concealment of the holster when wearing.

Holster End

The holster end means that the barrel of your weapon will be cover, but you have the option to having the holster end sewn at the bottom or leaving it open. This is a preference of choice. Leaving the holster end open is good for target shooting. This will allow for debris to exit the barrel of the weapon after shooting a lot. Flip side, if carry the weapon in a pouch or outdoors (riding a horse, bike, hunting, etc.), one may want to enclose the bottom. So debris will not enter the barrel of the weapon. (Please see FAQ page for more information).

Exotic Leather

Choosing exotic leather will increase the strength and durability of the holster. . The exotic leathers listed below is some of the strongest leathers available! The texture is much more defined than the others leathers. Exotic leather is a dense material that helps resist moisture and scratch proof. Well worth every penny! Learn more about the function, texture, trim vs full and colors on our FAQ & BLOG page. One of our most expensive leathers available is alligator, please call for prices and colors available.

Thumb Break Strap

On large DA (double action) weapons the thumb break is placed decocked. Smaller SA/DA (single action/double action) weapons the thumb break is placed cocked and locked. If you would like your thumb break placed differently, then please add that in the comment section. If you order a holster with a thumb break there is no returns or exchanges or refunds under any condition.


The Deluxe Thoroughbred Holster is the most comfortable IWB Tuckable holster we offer. This is a major upgrade from the original A-1 Thoroughbred Holster. The deluxe thoroughbred holster comes with a suede backing to add comfort against the body. We don’t stop there; we add memory foam like material embedded inside the suede backing to add a cushion to your body. So if you are leaning against your weapon, then it will feel like memory foam pillow against your side. People are sometimes turned away by the initial size of this holster.  But actually this holster only adds 1/8 of an inch (plus the gun’s width) to your pants. The NEW Deluxe Thoroughbred Holster is now slimmer than the original A-1 Thoroughbred Holster.

Functionally of the deluxe thoroughbred  is amazing and like no other holster. Conceals very nicely, wraps the body and distributes the weight of the firearm, thus giving the ability to carry a much larger frame gun. While being comfortable for all day wear and still having a smaller profile. The combat cut, as given on the original A-1 Thoroughbred is an additional $6.00 as for the new Deluxe Thoroughbred holster the option is given and FREE (check out FAQ page for more info regarding combat cut).

The Deluxe Thoroughbred holster offers the most protection from sharp edges, safety, slide locks, and beaver tails. Not only does it protect you from the gun, it also protects the gun from the salts and sweat from your skin (body oils).  Comes with two powder coated spring steel holster clips that are adjustable for ride height. There are 3 holes 1 inch apart on each side of the holster to allow you to adjust the cant and ride height of your holster. For a better and faster draw!

There is many options that you can choose from to attach the holster to your pants or belt. Options like: tuckable leather straps with a metal grade directional snap, tuckable spring steel powdered coated metal clips and lastly our new Ulticlip3.

The Deluxe Thoroughbred has a reinforced mouth piece for easy re-holstering. We use heavy nylon thread to help reduce against dry rotten, tearing or snagging like cotton thread. With this holster you have the option to choose your thread color and holster color.

The holster clips can fit up to 1-1/2 gun belt (2 layer) or 1-3/4 regular belt (1 layer).

This is no doubt the holster of choice to be wearing IWB!


Don’t forget to upgrade your holster clips to the New and Improved Ulticlip3 and Ulticlip XL . Check them out!

  1. Michael Seley

    I bought one of these and loved it so much I immediately ordered another for a different gun. This is the most comfortable IWB that I own. It looks so great out the package I almost hated to use it. Top notch quality and excellent craftsmanship. The only drawback is the order time but it’s worth the wait.

  2. leonard kuburcik

    Received my holster today. It looked great and it fits my poly protector 357 like a glove. Would recommend MTR holsters to anyone who wants a quality holster. going to order one for my S&W sdve9 real soon. Great service great product. THANK YOU

  3. Michael (verified owner)

    I ordered a holster for my Walther q5 match. I didn’t realize that the steel frame gun was different from the polymer gun. When the holster arrived the steel frame didn’t fit in the holster that was fabricated for the polymer gun

    Customer service had me return the holster and they made me a brand new holster that fit the steel frame. I only had to pay $10 for shipping.

    In todays world of dwindling customer service, I’d say that MTR goes above and beyond the call of duty

  4. Brian Massey (verified owner)

    Met all my requirements and exceeded all my expectations. I am very satisfied with my holster and will be recommending MTR to all who ask me for holster recommendations in the future.

    Fit like a glove

  6. Glen Heppner (verified owner)

    You delivered me a LEFT handed holster when RIGHT handed was clearly displayed in the order. How in the world does that happen after you wait for 14 weeks to get the holster. IF I get a reply, how much longer to the correct holster?!

    • MTR Custom Leather

      We are very sorry for the mistake on sending you the wrong shooting hand holster. I have already sent you a prepaid shipping label back through email. You will receive a brand new holster within one week of the returned holster with also a special gift for your inconvenience.

    • Glen Heppner (verified owner)

      Thank you for your prompt and appreciative customer service in order to rectify this error in the manufacture of my holster order! The turnaround time discussed with me over the phone being approximately 1 week is very good.

  7. vurtil opmer

    I just could not go away your website prior to suggesting that I actually enjoyed the usual information an individual supply for your guests? Is going to be again ceaselessly to investigate cross-check new posts.

    I really appreciate your efforts. Top Effort. I spent the last 20min having a good read of your content.

  12. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Love this holster. Fits very comfortably on my hip and is completely hidden. Will definitely shop again. It’s a long wait to get it but it’s definitely quality that you are waiting for

    Well worth the price. Nicest holsters I’ve ever owned.

  16. slh (verified owner)

    Excellent workmanship and material. I’ve used this holster for 2 years so far and it is holding up very well! I appreciate that MTR was able to accommodate my px4 compact with a armalaser. I will be a repeat customer!

  17. Steve M. (verified owner)

    Comfort is a priority for me and this holster is comfortable enough to wear all day and easy to draw even from the seated position. It’s also an exact fit for my Kimber.
    This is my second Thoroughbred holster. I have one for my Glock 30, which I’ve used for a year now.
    It keeps the firearm close and concealed meaning no worries when in public.

  19. Mark S. (verified owner)

    BEAUTIFUL holster…such a shame to hide it IWB! Only thing I’d change is maybe a 2nd screw on each belt loop to keep it from twisting around while sliding the belt on & off. Yes, I know it has snaps…but if my belt is already off, why mess with them? Still a solid 5/5, though…so comfortable I forget I have it on, and makes my full-size 1911 disappear.

  20. Colton (verified owner)

    Perfection. Solid craftsmanship. 200% worth the wait. ✋ ✔ it out!

  21. Eric W. (verified owner)

    First custom holster I’ve ever ordered due to nothing being available for a 3″ Smith, and only after hours of research between companies. Glad I chose correctly. Most comfortable holster I’ve ever worn and I carry every day often working long hours, nothing has ever come close even with my much lighter weight firearms. Will be ordering again soon this time a holster for a light bearing glock. Only downside I could say will be the 3 month wait, and it’s obvious why.

  22. Chris I. (verified owner)

    It is a great holster, but for one thing, I wish it did a better job of covering the beaver tail on my p365xl. When moving a lot it can move and begin digging in. Slightly more leather there would make all the difference in the world.

    • MTR Custom Leather

      Thank you for taking the time to leave us a comment. I am sorry that the holster’s sweat shield does not cover the full beaver tail on your Sig Sauer P365XL. This is something that can be easily done. If you would please contact our team and we will be more than glad to assist you with this issue and get this fixed for you. We want you to have the most comfortable holster for your everyday carry.

    Great quality, and super comfortable!! Even when carrying a full size 1911!

  24. Clarence T. (verified owner)

    Top quality and fits my gun like a glove. Very comfortable to wear, even with a larger gun.

  25. Tuan (verified owner)

    Beautifully made and fit my pistol perfectly. Expect a wait, but is worth it.

    I was very impressed with the leather work. Beautiful holster.

  27. Richard L. (verified owner)

    Item ordered: Deluxe Thoroughbred Holster (A-1+)
    The holster arrived ahead of the estimated schedule, and that was quite pleasing. While the lead time seems long, the holsters are hand-made, so it is to be expected.
    The unboxing went well, and the inner packaging that contained the actual holster also had care instructions. Although these are available on the website, it’s a thoughtful inclusion. The holster itself was quite beautiful, and the fit and finish are top-notch. No dangling thread ends, no parts even slightly out of alignment; indeed, I would rate the craftsmanship as exceptional, and I am totally satisfied with my purchase.
    The holster fit my sidearm like a glove, and while it is a very snug fit, in my case I did not need to do any work to finalize the fit. While the thumb-break strap did need a bit of encouragement the first time, even that required almost no effort. I opted for the UltiClip XL to secure the holster on my belt, and once you snap them into place, that holster is not going to move. If you didn’t get it exactly where you wanted it, you have to unlock the clips in order to slide it forward or back. Once you get it in the right place, it’ll stay there.
    In conclusion, while these are not the cheapest on the market, nor the quickest to get delivered, you do get exactly what you’re paying for. High-quality, hand-made custom-fitted leather holsters, made with thick and solid pieces of leather that will last for years and years. Comfortable and secure, and well worth the time and money.
    5/5, would buy again.

    Great fitting holster, very comfortable and top notch quality.

  29. Gail (verified owner)

    The holster is extremely well made and comfortable. It fits my gun perfectly. After putting the holster on l realized a slimmer holster would be a better fit for IWB concealment. The lady l spoke with in customer service was very helpful in answering my questions and directing me to a holster that would work better for me. I’ll be placing an order with MTR for that one. Excellent customer service! Thank you for helping me ma’am!

  30. LEONARD O. (verified owner)

    This was my first purchase of a custom leather holster. After wearing it for two summers it has become my most comfortable holster. I forget I’m wearing it and I wear it all day long. I’m fixing to purchase another one for a different firearm. It looks as good as the day I bought it. Staff was very helpful with answering my questions.

  31. Michael (verified owner)

    Never disappointed, You guys make a quality product this is my 4th time purchasing from MTR always been pleased with purchase lead times are getting shorter was suprized how fast I got it this time Thank and always recommend to friends and coworkers

    Beautiful craftsmanship. A snug custom fit for an odd weapon (Chiappa Rhino) with a wml. I would highly recommend and will be using again. So comfortable, I almost forget it’s on my hip.

  35. Greg B. (verified owner)

    This, as with the other multiple holsters I have purchased from MTR, is absolutely the best there is. Very comfortable, quality is amazing, retention is perfect and best of all the workmanship is A+. Best leather products out there! Now I’m saving up to buy one of the exotic holsters!

  36. John Brand (verified owner)

    Well made and awesome fit.

  37. Evan R. (verified owner)

    The craftsmanship on my holster is amazing. It came exactly as I ordered it. The amount of options offered is incredible. I looked at tons of holster companies and very few offer one for my current EDC + light & red dot. MTR had that and more. It is incredibly comfortable to wear all day. It is so comfortable that if I need to temporarily secure my gun in my vehicle I can’t even feel the empty holster is there. I believe I was quoted a lead time of 15-16 weeks but it showed up in about 11 or 12 and it was well worth the wait. I was a little apprehensive about the price as it was a bit more expensive than other holsters I’ve bought but once I got it any and all of that concern was gone. You can tell it is an incredibly well made, quality holster and it’s the last holster I will ever need to buy for this gun. This holster is the definition of a buy it for life product, I’m sure it will outlive me.

  38. Danielle L. (verified owner)

    As most people, I have worn many IWB holsters. Everyone has an opinion and insists the one they use is the best or another one someone else uses is the best. You end up with a multitude of unused holsters taking up space. Well, a dear friend recommended this holster to me and this was the ONE perfect recommendation! This holster is so absolutely comfortable that I forget it is even on. The leather will quickly mold to fit the shape of your body and you forget it is even on. I HIGHLY recommend this holster. It is worth the cost and it is worth the wait while it is being custom made to fit your make and model of firearm.
