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 * 

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.


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. However, we use estimated 6/7oz leather on the sweat shield of the holster and depending on the amount of force from the body, pants, belt etc. this may cause the holster to not stay completely open after drawing. Keep in mind we use leather not plastic, we ensure comfort on our holsters and fast drawing. If you have to draw in time of emergency, whose going to care about a fast re-holstering 🙂 This is a holster for concealed carry and hopefully, the Lord’s will you won’t have to draw the weapon! We do offer a internal liner on our holsters, this will had another piece of leather onto the sweat shield to make it a little more sturdier. On request prior to ordering we can make the leather any thickness for additional cost, send request to our email

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).

  1. Mike Reed (verified owner)

    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!

  6. DAVID B. (verified owner)

    The holster fits like a glove. Highly recommended. Very good workmanship

  7. charles hamrick (verified owner)

    as always a great fit and a very good wearing holster.
    thanks again..!

  8. Anonymous (verified owner)

    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.

  9. Alan (verified owner)

    Fantastic holster, great service, quick turn around time!

  13. Brian B. (verified owner)

    Well done, as usual. It’s well made, a flexible design, and priced right. My go-to holster makers.

  14. Andre (verified owner)

    This is my second holster and I love both the quality and the comfort when wearing it. I will be ordering more.

  16. James Oleksak (verified owner)

    This holster is great very comfortable had to be custom made for the accessories ( red dot + laser) I have on my sig 365 and came out perfect they were the only company that i could find to make this holster . I also had them make me a holster for my sig 320 which had a red dot and laser as well very satisfied

  17. KEN P. (verified owner)

    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!

  18. Tony T. (verified owner)

    Most comfortable holster I’ve ever put on.

  19. Christopher Cranford (verified owner)

  20. Eric M. (verified owner)

    Exellent, very flexible holster for IWB carry. I expect to get a lot of use out of it.

  21. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very comfortable. Will definitely buy from again.

  22. Michael W. (verified owner)

    The quality of the holster is superb. The customer service was responsive and kind. Only issue was the timeline was a little unclear, but customer service was able to clarify everything.

  23. Paul H. (verified owner)

    I love your products and want a holster for all my carry pistols. Still need a G19, G17, G21SF, Sig 320, 1911 and a G30

  24. Robert W. (verified owner)

    This is my second MTR holster and their quality, craftsmanship and customer service is second to none. They have a customer for life!

  28. Dana (verified owner)

    Excellent holster. Finally found an IWB/OWB that meets ALL of my requirements and I do not have to compromise nor settle on anything! Very comfortable, revolver is secure in holster and holster is secure on belt. Oh heck yea I be ordering another for my carry pistol now that me revolver is all set. Thanks MTR!

  29. Michael Pittman (verified owner)

    Very quick delivery upon order and exactly what I ordered. Fit like a glove.

  30. MICHAEL S. (verified owner)

    This is my 2nd A-2. The most comfortable IWB I have worn. Fit and quality is excellent, ordered this holsters with closed end, double stitched, shark trim. Looks Great!

  31. Wayne W. (verified owner)

    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!

  32. Toby W. (verified owner)

    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

  33. Tam Roberts (verified owner)

    MTR leather makes some very high quality products. Have been very pleased with both purchases I have made from them. The gun holsters are a perfect fit and are definitely made with craftsmanship. Would recommend this company to anyone in need of leather products.

  34. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Another fantastic product by MTR Customer Leather. I think I own 9 of his holsters and love every one of them.

  39. Stephen (verified owner)

    Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. I wore mine IWB while doing a workbench build to see how it did in odd positions. I forgot it was there!

    Weapon retention is very snuggle, yet rig remains flexible.

  40. Marcus Bowden (verified owner)

    This holster is definitely one of a kind. The reason I bought one was because they’re locally made and I’m all for helping others and their businesses because I would want people to do me the same way. It looks like it was made with care and I received my holster in less than 2 weeks. This was an amazing experience and I will continue to order a holster for every weapon I have from mtr custom leather. You guys are amazing.

  41. Greg B. (verified owner)

    This was my 3rd purchase from MTR. Their leather quality is the best there is. Fitment of weapon in holster is perfect. From order to shipping is very reasonable for this specific made holster. I have several “custom” made leather holsters from other leather companies, but in my opinion, MTR is a notch above! From now on , this is my go leather shop!

  42. Thomas Hartzel (verified owner)

    These are the finest holsters I have used in over 31 years of carrying. The fit and finish is superb and they seem very durable. They are comfortable and tuck tight.

  43. Greg (verified owner)

    Excellent quality, this is my 6th holster from this fantastic company!

  44. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I was very happy with the holster. It was top quality and it very comfortable…I would without hesitation recommend this holster to anyone . Thank you gentlemen for your top quality product and the professionalism of your company .

  45. John S. (verified owner)

    I ended up canceling my order for this holster and ordering the A-3A Tuckable Adversary Holster instead because I felt it would be better for my small Kahr CW380 pistol.

  46. Greg B. (verified owner)

    Best made holster available! You will be well pleased. Buy it now!

  47. Russell Howell (verified owner)

    Great customer service and the holster is one of the best ever made. Thanks MTR

    Excellent material and craftsmanship. We’ll worth the wait for a truly custom molded holster

  53. Steve J. (verified owner)

    Over the years, I have tried a lot of holsters. My search ended here. Anytime I get a new pistol, I order one of these holsters for it.
