Attachment (Laser Light)

Any holster purchased from MTR Custom Leather, LLC with a light/laser attachment on the weapon, may automatically come with an enclosed sewn bottom even if you choose open. However, if you definitely want an enclosed bottom please choose enclosed end under “Holster End” option. MTR Custom Leather, LLC takes into consideration that over time leather as we all know will stretch. Therefore, the retention of the holster may decrease. Having a laser/light attachment on the weapon will increase the weight of the weapon causing a decrease in the retention of the holster faster, than a weapon without a laser/light attachment. MTR Custom Leather, LLC adds an enclosed sewn bottom to most holsters, to ensure a long term use of the holster at no extra cost to you. Some lasers and light attachments causes the holster to become “boxy” in shape, due to the attachment is under the trigger guard. Weapons without an attachment, is held into the holster by the retention of the trigger guard angle (“L” shape). MTR has figured this out in the many years of constructing leather holsters with laser attachments. We want the best functional and safe holster for you for your protection. If you do not see your laser/light/optic listed please call (336)879-2166 or email sales@mtrcustomleather.com to see if we have it.

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 Viridaian 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 * 

The option that you choose will be shown at the very bottom before you add to cart.

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. (Color Thread $15.99-Black Free) The option that you choose will be shown at the very bottom before you add to cart.

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 * 

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. Keep in mind, that if you have a laser or light attachment, than the bottom of the holster may be enclosed (Please see FAQ page for more information).

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.

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 and colors on our FAQ page. One of our most expensive leathers available is alligator, please call for prices and colors available.

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.

This holster gives you the best of both worlds by offering an inside the waist band (IWB) holster that converts to outside the waistband (OWB) by easily taking off our USA powder coated holster clips. When removed they reveal our molded belts slots for our famous close riding pancake. This holster has become one of our top sellers due to the versatility of having both IWB and OWB capabilities. We only use the finest bull hide and hardware on this holster to ensure the longevity and durable wear for years to come. We reinforce the mouth for easy one handed re-holstering and to prevent collapsing while carrying IWB. This holster by far is a great wearing holster both OWB and IWB. Also, this holster is tuckable, so you can tuck your shirt behind the metal clips. The holster clips/belt slots can fit up to 1-1/2 gunbelt(2 layer) or 1-3/4 regular belt (1 layer).

NOTE: DUE TO THE FACT THAT OUR GEAR IS ADJUSTABLE THREAD LOCKER IS NOT APPLIED DURING THE PRODUCTION PHASE. PLEASE ARRANGE YOUR GEAR HOWEVER YOU AND YOUR APPLICATION DESIRE AND APPLY A BLUE THREAD LOCKER TO YOUR HARDWARE. LOST HARDWARE WILL BE REPLACED AT THE CUSTOMERS EXPENSE.

    Been wearing this for a couple of weeks now and I’m extremely happy with it. Looks good, feels good, fits my J-Frame perfectly. Can’t beat the price. If you have been trying to decide between holsters, look no further !

  2. Tristan Livingston (verified owner)

    I love my holster, just like the picture it carries my XDS. It took about a month or wearing to get it just right, like breaking in a new pair of boots. Im looking at another holster for one of my 1911’s. This company has won me as a customer for life and I have sent several friends to this site. After all word of mouth is how I found out.

  3. Tristan Livingston (verified owner)

    I should have also added that I have had it for about a year, and it is as good as it was new, no loose stitching and still fits like a glove.

  4. Michael Dreahn

    Received my custom Black Elephant holster today. Not only did they exceed my expectations but totally blew me away. Hard to find a holster maker that can deal with S&W Shield with full Crimson Trace 801 Laser/Light.. To top it all off they made me a matching dual carry double mag carrier. May be the first DC mag holder in existence. Fit and finish is impeccable. Made me a very proud Texan.

  5. Pete Bellanger

    I’ve been using this holster for about 2 months with my Glock 26 & couldn’t be more happy! By far this is the best, most comfortable, easily concealable holster I’ve owned! I upgraded the clips with the Ulti-Clips for a really secure fit! I’ve wore shorts, jeans & dress slacks with t-shirts & dress shirts both tucked in & out with no noticeable printing. Even my wife has asked if I had my pistol when we’ve went out before!

    This is my EDC holster. Not only does it look good, it is very comfortable to wear and does not gouge you in the side the way some holsters do.

    My holster came with the wrong clips and customer service replied promptly by sending the correct ones. I will be ordering from them again.

    Their Dual Carry holster is a winner. I have 4 of them. However, I purchased one of their ankle holsters for a sig P938 that’s a poorly designed piece of junk they still charge a pretty penny for. The 3-star is for their customer service never reaching out to fix the ankle holster issue. Therefore, I highly recommend their Dual Carry but don’t expect any sort of customer service … buyer beware!

    Slow delivery because of the pandemic and economic situation, but well worth the wait! Holster was flawless, and MTR was the only custom leather holster maker I could find capable of making my combination of pistol + Viridian laser sight.

    I also love the fact that this holster can convert between inside the waist or outside carry — and I do not walk out the front door without having it on!

    I searched for a long time on google images trying to find the right holster for me. Once I found it I then learned it was a local NC company. I support local so it was a big win for me

    That was 6 years and it’s still in great shape. i recently changed my everyday carry gun so I ordered another holster. I love it just as much as the first one.

    I do plan on ordering a new belt soon
