What holster fits the Dan Wesson pistols?
« on: May 25, 2012, 03:45:04 PM »
We never DID get one started here, did we...
Here's a link to me review on a 1911 holster from High Noon that might fit DW pistols without a frame rail. They don't list any DW by name, though.

Anyone else?

Looking at a high noon high ride down under, a fusion holster from gun crafter industries and a Trojan holster. Leaning toward Trojan or high noon.

Forgive my ignorance, but if the DW 1911's are 1911 pattern pistols why wouldn't holsters for other 1911's just work? (I understand it might not if rail equipped)

What DW do you own? I don't know a single 1911 type Dan Wesson that any regular 1911 holster will not fit.

My three 1911 holsters fit them all. It is more about what you like. I have a Bianchi owb, Little FoxX kydex on leather, and a Garrett Silent Thunder iwb which is all kydex with a leather lining. The Garrett is new and should be sweatproof here in Florida. Nice leather is always tempting though.

What can I say? I like nylon better than leather or Kyodex.

My Dan Wessons have always fit standard 1911 holsters like a glove.  Or well, a hand. :)

There's tons of holsters out there that will fit Dan Wesson firearms. Do your self a favor and look up
Comfort Hoslters. They are the best, most comfortable holster ever conceived.

Custom Holsters make the most comfortable holsters period.

Specialist.

Bladetech and Garrett Industries both make holsters that fit. From experience, I can say the Garrett is a nice holster.

I run the Aliengear holsters (http://aliengearholsters.com) for all my guns. I like the modularity and being able to swap shells.  I think they're one of the best for the money -- especially buying the two holster pack with an extra shell, and add on the gun belt if you don't already have a good one.  Their CS is great, and they're made here which is a nice bonus. 

I have the shells for my Specialist and my ECO and they both fit like a glove.   As well as the shells for a few of the CZ's...

I typically run the ECO using the IWB Cloak Tuck 3 and the Specialist in the OWB Cloak Mod.

I know we are reviving an OLD thread, but yeah absolutely Aliengear makes great holsters and is a great company!  Love their business model too with the free shell swaps and awesome package deals. Very responsive customer service too!  I probably have 8-10 of their holsters and/or shells.  Having said that tho, other than my Springfields or Colts (the work horses and yeah sure I'll catch $hit for this lol) I kinda cringe at the thought of putting most other 1911's in a kydex shell holster.  Gotta be leather for me :)  I was kinda wondering why he didn't think other 1911 holsters would fit DW 1911's?
