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)

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.


The Deluxe Full-Size Quick-Snap holster is hand crafted with double military directional steel snaps on each leather strap for double the security. Features about the A-5: leather reinforced mouth piece to help retain the holster opening for easy re-holstering. Sweat shield or body shield is a key feature to help protect you from the sharp edges on the weapon; while also protecting the weapon from your body oils and sweat. The New Deluxe Full-Size Quick-Snap fully conceals the full length of the weapon while carrying OWB. Each holster comes with a deep mold of the outlines of the specific firearm, which is only done by a technique called hand boning. This technique is created by one of our professional leather craftsman to ensure a proper fitment of the weapon for long term use.

The A-5 Deluxe full-size quick-snap is a major step up from our original design B-3 and B-4. This is the 3rd generation of this type of holster from us. This gives each generation of holsters a major difference in function, features and feel. One of the main differences between the first and second generation and the new Deluxe Full-Size Quick-Snap holster there’s a small forward cant 15 degrees to the weapon for easy draw of the weapon. The A-5 features a slight wider profile in width to enable a nice comfortable contouring of the holster to the body. This will create the weapon and holster to stay concealed against the body. The profile of the holster will be less noticeable under a shirt.

FYI: The straps may be turned in the opposite direction, by using a screw driver to undue each snap from the strap. This will give you the option to unsnap the strap by pushing from the top of the strap or by pulling the strap from the bottom.  Choose which way works best for you; it’s a preference of choice.

Keep in mind the leather belt loops/straps can fit up to 1-1/2 gun belt (2 layer ¼” thick) or 1-3/4 regular belt (1 layer thinner belt).

**The additional picture provided is one of our most popular selling holsters. It’s mahogany color with tiger shark trim.

70 reviews for Deluxe Full-Size Quick-Snap Holster (A-5)

  1. Brett Salamon

    I bought an A-5 Deluxe quick snap for a 3″ 1911 a while ago from you. I am an experienced gun carrier, long time gun owner and an NRA instructor. After wearing the A-5 most every day for a few months now, I have to tell you, it is the BEST holster that I have ever owned. It even smells good, at least it did when I got it. It holds the gun securely but not so tight as to hinder my draw. It goes on and off easily, even while my belt and pants are on my body and it rides comfortably all the time, sitting, standing and driving. You make an excellent product. Thank you.

  2. Brett Salamon

    Since I wrote that review I have purchased two additional Deluxe Quick-Snap holsters for two other guns. Excellent holsters all.

  3. Chris Hogan

    The craftsmanship and quality is out of this world. This is one of the best looking holsters that I have ever seen. I bought it for my Glock 43 and it fits like a glove. The only thing I don’t like is the cant of the holster. It is too much of an angle for me and I will probably never use this holster. This is only my personal preference. Again, this is one of the best holsters when it comes to quality. I will buy another one, but I’ll go with the B3 holster.


    Purchased this holster for my new S&W Shield in .45. Many other companies have holsters for the 9mm and .40 Shields, but not many are producing for the .45. Whereas you can force the .45 into the 9mm holster, the .45 is just enough bigger and has a slightly different profile so it is NOT a custom fit. MTR was one of the few companies to offer a holster for the .45. The holster I received from MTR is a PERFECT fit for the .45. The workmanship is superb. I have previously purchased most of my leather holsters from a very old and reputable company. They have been making leather holsters for over 100 years, but do not offr a holster for the Shield .45. The holster I received from MTR (for slightly less cost) far exceeded the quality of holsters from my previous supplier. The dark brown mahogany color is great, the holster is easy to put on and take off, and took only using for a day to completely break-in. Draw is very easy yet retention is secure enough.

    You have gained a new/loyal customer and I will be recommending your products to my students.

    Took way too long to get it. I realize I asked for it to be made to fit the pistol with a viridian laser attachment, and the installed magnet for the switch, but 14 weeks?

    Fit and finish of the holster was great and shows a high attention to detail. My FN 5.7 mkII fit snuggle in the contours of the holster and will need a small amount of adjustment. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and plan on making future purchases.

    Very nicely made holster. Fit perfectly to my S&W Shield 380 EZ with Crimson Trace green laser. Took only a short time to break in.

  17. Amy Romanoski (verified owner)

    I ordered this holster in mahogany with black shark skin trim. It is exactly what I hoped it would be. Quality leather and craftsmanship. Functional yet beautiful. I love supporting a local NC Christian family-owned business. Ordered a mahogany belt as well and after receiving it, ordered a black belt. Now planning to order a holster for my 1911. So many choices to customize for a unique look. I would definitely recommend MTR Custom Leather to anyone. Thanks for a beautiful quality product!

    I have a number of these holsters from MTR. This one was made for a Beretta M9A3 that had a Langdon Tactical optic slide on it. The slide includes suppressor height sights. After sending the specifications, MTR went to work. The results were well worth the wait. It fits perfectly and can be quite comfortable to carry.

    Love these holsters and have them for several guns. Conceals like a pancake but has the convenience of a paddle.

  46. JOE CONCEPCION (verified owner)

    Quality work. I have been an MTR customer for over 10 years. Always extremely satisfied. I continue to tell friends and family of their products that last.

  47. JOE CONCEPCION (verified owner)

    Quality work that last!!! I have tried several types of holsters made of different types of material. Nothing beats the holsters made by MTR!!! Comfort and durability…

  48. WILLIAM YAT (verified owner)

    Nice quality and workmanship. Perfect fit with my mounted crimson trace pro.

  49. WILLIAM N. (verified owner)

    I have three of the Deluxe Quick Snap holsters, one each for my Glock 43, 48, and 19. VERY well-made holsters. What I particularly like is the ability to put on and take off without either unholstering the firearm or doing and un-doing my belt.

  50. Kurt Springs (verified owner)

    I’ve used this holster with almost all my guns. I decided to get one for my detective special. Quality and fit are good.

  51. Brian Grimm (verified owner)

    Excellent quality as always. My “go-to” company for holsters.

  55. Anonymous (verified owner)

  56. Bynum H. (verified owner)

    Repeat customer here. This is my second A-5, the first being for a S&W Shield .45, this most recent one for a S&W Shield Plus 9mm. Both are excellent quality and fairly priced. I’d recommend the additional liner and second row of stitching which increases retention. Turnaround time was very reasonable.

  57. jeff bell (verified owner)
