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.

ECR Instant On Viridian Lasers

Enhanced Combat Readiness (ECR) now part of every universal Viridian laser. This can only be used with the Viridian C Series, X Series Gen 2 and Gen 3, and Reactor Series are equipped with INSTANT-ON technology and activate. Please see FAQ page and our BLOG page for more info. Will not work on E-series.

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)

Thumb Break

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.

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.


MTR Custom Leather Cross Draw holster has many unique features that include; A custom cut sweat shield for comfort while sitting or riding in a car, a reinforced mouth for better retention, full length coverage to protect you from your gun and your gun from being scratched or damaged while using this holster, a belt channel on the back molded for a tight fit for the belt and a 1¾” slot to insure no movement and to pull the holster close to the body, and last but not least, our Professional Hand Boning (for no extra charge) to insure a glove tight fit and very detailed and professional look. The holster has an estimated 15 degree cant forward. Any more of a cant may cause the weapon to come out of the holster over time.

This holster is perfect for the business man that is on the road a lot or even the average Joe that wants to feel more secure while riding in a vehicle.  The picture shown above has shark trim which is an added feature on this holster. Keep in mind that colors on the holster varies depending on the grain of the leather. Sweat shields come on this holster with you have a semi automatic, revolvers will not come with such high sweat shield. So, if you are in the market for an excellent Cross Draw holster, try our newest cross draw carry holster and you will see why we believe in our products. The belt slots can fit up to 1-1/2 gun belt(2 layer) (1/4″ thick) or 1-3/4 regular belt (1 layer).

Keep in mind, that smaller weapons may look different than the picture. Since the holster has 2 belt loops on the back, this does not leave a lot of room to cant the holster for a crossdraw on small weapons, just not enough room. The holster may only have one belt loop instead of 2 or the loop may be positioned on the top (slide) of the weapon instead of the trigger guard.

54 reviews for Cross Draw Holster (A-1C)

  1. Charles Finley

    I find using the crossdraw holster easier for me to use to conceal my edc gun. I also like the fact that its super comfortable to wear while driving and knowing i dont have to readjust my edc to just sit down is a big big deal for me. I have now Purchased 3 mtr holster 2 crossdraw and one dual carry and the crossdraw is my favorite by far. Mtr is a quality custom made holster and for me they will be the only holster maker i will buy from for now on. Fyi i also am able to wear this crossdraw holster on my strong side and the ability to sit so high on my side and tight against my hip/belly makes my edc super concealable which is exactly what im looking for. Highly recommended holster!

  2. John Larney (verified owner)

    Design is where I have an issue. It does not hold pistol tight to body. The holster rides almost vertical and belt loops are low on the holster causing the grip of the Sig P365xl to fall away from the body and printing. I’m 5’10” & 158 lbs with a flat stomach. (Wish I’d known about the new Gen 2 design.)Otherwise excellent leather, great stitching, holds gun secure and liner makes for a smooth draw.

    This is a holster for a large automatic with a reflex style site and a rail light. The fit is unbelievably perfect. Even the mounting screw for the light is embossed in the leather at perfect alignment. I am impressed.

  11. Jeff (verified owner)

    Really nice piece of leatherwork. My 1911 with it’s red dot fit perfectly — no interference whatsoever. Well worth the wait. I now have three other holsters on order and I’m anxiously awaiting their delivery.

    great quality and fit

  13. Steven Capp (verified owner)

    I purchased a holster for a H & K VP9SK with a Crimson Trace LG400 laser. The fit, quality, and retention of your holster is excellent. This is, of course, not that common a configuration and your ability to offer such a product means I will be placing orders with your company in the future.

  15. Charles H. (verified owner)

    My Cross Draw holster is well made and the company is thoughtful and easy to deal with. My only reservation is that my holster does not allow my gun grip to be pulled against my body. It may be my body type and/or the gun I want to conceal.

  16. Thomas Krey (verified owner)

    This is the 2nd holster that I’ve gotten from MTR and they are both wonderful.

  17. Mark H. (verified owner)

    The holster is awesome. Very comfortable. I carry daily and this holster is great for concealed carry. Its comfortable riding in a car. Great holster

  18. Joseph (verified owner)

    Perfect fit

  19. James D. (verified owner)

    Beautiful holster. Very well made and finished. The wide loops keep it from moving at all, and allow space for a belt loop between them for a secure draw.

    Of course I sprang for all the bells and whistles (exotic, pure stingray, lined, double stitched and put a rush on it) so it was a pretty penny, but I think this will last longer than I will. My last holster from MTR was regular leather, but is probably ten years old now, not worn out, but getting pretty stretched out.

    My only surprise was that it wasn’t very snug fitting even on the first pistol insertion. Maybe they had to do that because stingray really doesn’t stretch much? No matter, as I added a tension adjustment. I prefer it, and my agency does as well.

    By the way, I don’t wear this as a cross draw, but as a strong – side holster, so it cants rearward a bit. That way, when you come out of the holster, you’re already almost on target. Forward cant on a holster is completely wrong in my opinion, and I’ve been a firearms instructor for more than twenty years.

    It could certainly be worn cross draw in a vehicle while driving to keep it clear of the seat belt buckle.

    Thank you guys, lovely piece of work!

    Ordered one for my Springfield MC Operator 1911 with a Surefire x300 attached. Definitely a step above production leather from other companies that make premade holsters. Very durable and definitely smells and feels like high quality leather! I like how there were many options and styles of how you want the particular holster made. Like how every man should have at least one very nice suit, everyone should invest in a high quality custom leather holster from MTR Customs Leather! Worth the wait!

    MTR is the only holster maker I found who could produce a Cross-draw holster for my Sig P938 Equinox with a Viridian R5 green laser @ a reasonable price. They even sewed in the magnet that activates the instant on/off feature. The quality and craftsmanship are 1st class. Thank you !

  24. Don (verified owner)

    The holster is beautiful. Love the finish. However I forgot to mention I have suppressor height front sight on my model 21 but it’s ok because I also have a Glock 20 so it fits perfectly…….great craftsmanship

  25. dana burt (verified owner)

    Nice holster.Durable build.Rides high(bottom of holster hangs only 1/2″below bottom of belt.It is a cross draw but works excellent on strong side also.It has become my favorite and I’m going to order one for my P365 also.

  26. Peter S. (verified owner)

    Great product. I have two and plan to buy at least one more.

  27. Fred B. (verified owner)

  28. Elvin Johnson (verified owner)

    This is my second cross-draw holster from MTR because I was so pleased with my first holster for my Sig Equinox
    P938 / Viridian Instant-on green laser. This first holster has a magnet sewn in to activate the instant on/off of the laser. It required very little break in and the pistol draws smoothly despite tall front and rear tritium sights. The sight tunnel is quite adequate. The pistol draws and re-holsters quite nicely, and remains close to the body for almost no printing while wearing just a t-shirt as a cover garment.
    My new holster far exceeded expectations so that when I was able to order a Springfield Armory Hellcat RDP, I looked to MTR for another cross-draw holster. A short time later MTR showed the cross-draw holster available for the Hellcat RDP. The RDP comes equipped with a compensator as well as a red dot sight. I contacted MTR about making the holster to accommodate an Olight PL-Mini2 Valkyrie and was invoiced for the same.
    So I ordered this RDP holster with the same double stitching and the open holster end as the holster for the Sig P938. But this time I opted for the sharkskin trim instead of plain-jane as before. The reason for ordering an open-end holster was to shorten the bottom end of the holster to improve concealability. Maybe by only 1/2″, but anything is better than nothing.
    My first holster was ordered with expedited shipping and I did receive it within about 3 weeks. My second holster was ordered with standard shipping and it arrived in 12-13 weeks, as stated.
    The first thing I noticed was that the RDP holster had a sewn-closed end, despite having ordered open-end. The pistol was VERY tight in the holster. I understand this is not totally undesirable, so I worked the pistol in and out repeatedly, let it sit for a few days with plastic wrap around the pistol in the holster. The holster started to loosen up a bit. The stitching on this holster was not done with the same care as the Sig holster. There were loops of stitching on the inside of the holster, right where the almost non-existent sight tunnel should have been, snagging the front sight upon drawing.
    I am a little disappointed that this pistol doesn’t ride as close to the body as the Sig does in it’s holster. I only use the 11 round magazine instead of the 13 or 15 round mag for concealed carry, but the grip sags outward quite a bit, unlike the Sig. I’m not sure if this could possibly be rectified by allowing the pistol to sit a smidge deeper in the holster or by moving the belt slots a squeak.
    As of the time of writing this review, the RDP will draw and re-holster very smoothly until I thread it on my gun-belt to wear. Then, the only way to draw without a snag is to force my index finger inside the holster along side the slide while drawing.
    Overall, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Sig P938 Cross-Draw holster. The Hellcat RDP Cross-Draw holster gets a grade of adequate.

    Quality leather holsters for the Kel Tec PMR-30 are hard to find.MTR also offers a cross draw for the PMR-30, which may be no one else has. I purchased the cross draw and I love it! I have a big box of holsters that I hate to wear, I think MTR has solved my problem…I will definitely be buying more holsters. John Saluda,NC

  35. John Sullivan (verified owner)

    I normally don’t order crossdraw holsters because most companies just don’t get them right. After ordering a couple of paddle holsters from MTR I was impressed with the workmanship and quality so I gave their’s a try. They got it right the ride, angle and fit are perfect.

  36. James (verified owner)

    Well made but I wished it was a little closer inline with belt but maybe I will find a better way to where it, Its not fully broke in yet.

  53. Howard T. (verified owner)

    This holster is of SUPERIOR quality. It is very well made of thick leather that retains it’s shape when the weapon is drawn, making re-holstering a breeze. It “hugs” the body for outstanding concealment when wearing a loose shirt. This crossdraw holster is great for driving with a seatbelt as drawing is unencumbered. The stitching is flawless. I am extremely happy with this holster.

  54. Daniel Marvel (verified owner)

    As usual I searched the internet using “BEST OWB holster for a Springfield Armory Hellcat.” I reviewed the list and went with MTR. I received this high quality hand made holster in the timeframe they told me it would take. My gun fits perfectly. I can now carry this Cross Draw Holster with complete confidence of MTR quality workmanship and concealability. Thanks. Great Job.
