Leather IWB holster for railed SR1911

Does anyone know anyone who makes one? I don't like Kydex so its not an option. I would also like to know what other manufacturers railed section is similiar to the SR1911's rail. This way if I am searching online and I see another manufacturers railed gun listed on a holster makers website I can get a better idea if it will work or not. It might also be beneficial to holster makers if they know as well
Thanks

EDIT: I forgot to add that I'm left handed. Not necessarily a deal breaker but takes an extra few weeks to have one made

Thanks but it doesn't really answer the question. Most holster makers want the correct blue gun or if not available they want whats closest

Call up Ken Null. Null holsters. If he don't have it and they make the mold he will probably get it. I usually get my holsters in a week too.

Colts rail section is very different from Rugers rail. Go to GOOGLE and search IMAGES of Colt Rail gun and Ruger Rail gun. First, after you stare at them for a bit you will notice 2 major differences but there are 4 differences that will effect holster fit between manufacturers.

The first is the spacing and location of the picatinny rail slots. Colt has 4 slots from the trigger guard to the end of the dust cover. Ruger has 3 but the slots start much further forward of the trigger guard and the rail also ends in front of the ball turned section of the front of the slide. FYI, Picatinny rail slots are .206 wide and the rail is .182" if I remember correctly.

The second is the dust cover width just above the rail. On a Colt the dustcover is basically the same thickness as the slide (about .92") and is then reduced to the colt standard frame width (I believe .750") just before the slide lock. On a Ruger the dust cover is the same thickness as the frame at .765". Thats a difference of at least .15" which is a lot!

The third is the ejection port. Colts are rolled more at the front outer side whereas Rugers drop straight down.

Fourth and probably least important but sometimes comes into consideration for holster makers and thats that the Colt front sight is flush with the front of the slide. Rugers are slightly further back.

When you're "boning" a holster all of these physical differences make all the difference between fitting and jambing your gun in a holster.

I called both Null and Kramer and neither make a holster for the Ruger railgun.

Try Overlandgunleather. He makes excellent holsters! If they make the mold for your gun and he doesn't have it he will order it.What he does is charge you for the mold.When he makes your holster he will then deduct the mold price from your order. He then keeps the mold.So email Adam.
