1911 Magazine Holster

The 1911 is an iconic pistol that is probably in just about every gun safe in America. If there is ever a gun that you have heard about, the 1911 is definitely one of them. The 1911 magazines are pretty much universal across all the different makes and models which makes our horizontal magazine holster the prime option for anyone that owns this firearm. 


Is the 1911 too big to conceal carry?

This comes down to personal preference, personal physique and carry situations. Your personal prefence is basically how the gun works for you in your hand and how does it shoot for you at the range. How does it work for you when you practice drawing from your holster? There are many things that need to be considered when you think about the 1911 as a concealed carry pistol. Your personal physique can determine which kind of pistol is most comfortable to carry. If you have a little bit of a spare tire or extra luggage you are carrying with you, then a 1911 might not be the best pistol for you as it is certainly a bigger pistol. How you are planning on carrying the 1911 pistol, whether in an OWB or IWB holster could also determine the ease of carrying the 1911. In an IWB you need some extra room in your belt to allow for the larger frame pistol and consequently larger holster to account for the frame size. 

The 1911 Magazine

Your standard 1911 magazine is 7 rounds and is a fairly heavy magazine when fully loaded. The Magholder uses a friction fit along with the insert retention slot on the magazine. Utilizing both of these the magazine stays securely in the horizontal magazine pouch without falling out. However the magazine can quickly be retrieved when needed. We have yet to find a 1911 magazine that does not fit in our magazine holster. Many of the popular firearm manufacturers make a 1911 variation, some of those that are popular are below:
