1791 Gunleather Ultra Custom Belt Holster Compact

1791 Gunleather is offering its Ultra Custom Belt Holster with an outside-the-waistband (OWB) configuration that is fully customizable, providing users with technology that allows the leather to be molded by the user to fit his or her specific firearm (and later re-molded repeatedly to accommodate the contours of different guns).

Rendered in Night Sky Black color, this 1791 Gunleather OWB holster is handcrafted by professional leather artisans out of 100-percent certified American, steer-hide leather for an intended use with a wide range of micro-compact and subcompact pistol designs. The Belt Holster Compact is made entirely from comfortable, breathable, cow-hide, yet it offers Kydex-like friction retention thanks to Memory-Lok, a thermal polymer included within the unit.

1791 Gunleather includes a clear molding bag with each holster, along with tools, that are to be used for altering the holster’s gun fit. To reshape, simply insert the holster into the included bag, seal and soak in 160-degree water for five minutes. Once pliable after the allotted warming time, use the included tools to mold the unit to the preferred firearm.

The 1791 Gunleather Ultra Custom Belt Holster for compact pistols comes in a right-hand configuration and retail price is $100. To learn more, please visit
