View Full Version : Holster for light rail guns
11th March 2006, 18:46
New guy looking for a little help.
I have a Caspian light rail frame, 5", single stack 1911. I would like a holster similar to the Gunsite/Galco training holster that will fit the light rail guns. Need it in both LH & RH versions.
Right now I'm planning on the Safariland 560/561 adjustable holster. I've been told these will fit.
Kydex is not a desirable option.
Any other suggestions?

Don't know if this will help but I just ordered a Wilson Combat Tactical Assualt holster which according to Wilson will fit all 1911s with rails and for $60.00 it's not a bad deal. It's also suede lined. Currently they are out of stock but I ordered one and was told it would be here next week.

I checked WC site and it mentions nothing about a light rail on that holster. Is that something they told you on the phone?

Wilson shows a holster that looks identical to the Safariland 560/61 just for more money.
A friend has info that these can be adjusted to hold the light rail guns. There's a little extra work involved but it's the best option at this time.
I hope to order the Safariland this week. I needed another holster anyway.
If I get it worked out I'll post the results.

It shows on the websight and their catalog and they also told me on the phone. Its their Tactical Assault model, belt holster item#TA1BKR15, fits 5 inch gov't model with or without light rail, right hand model. Currently out of stock but they are getting more this week and they told me they sell out quickly.

Just an update,
I received the Safariland 560 paddle holster. This will work with my Caspian framed 5" gun although I do need to make new spacers and find slightly longer screws.
I have used this holster during a training class with a STI gun and really liked it.
More to come.

Is that wilson combat holster an IWB? I really really like the Skyops holster from Galco, but will it fit my Kimber TLE/RL with the rail? I don't plan on carrying w/ the light on it for the time being. I'd hate to spend the $$ on a holster and find out it doesn't fit.

Kramer leather, I purchased a IWB #2 horsehide for a Springfield MC operator. They will have one for the OWB too. give them a call.

Just got the Wilson today but a different model since the one I initially ordered won't be in for weeks. This one is the "Practical" an OWB holster and it fits my S&W 1911 w/rail like a glove. The catalog specifies that it is for 1911s only but they assured me it would fit a 1911 with a rail and they were right on.

Thanks for all of the suggestions, I learned a lot.
I bought the Safariland 560 paddle holster. With a little adjustment it fits the Caspian light rail 1911 full sized frame. I had to get a few slightly longer screws and some rubber washers that I used as spacers. Workd out well.

bump for links please, for us new guys of course :D
google searches are a little ambiguous when looking for "1911 Tac-light mounted holster" (and many other target words). without looking at something the LA SWAT would wear on their leg, i am looking for something to carry the light on pistol full time just off my belt, without being so far from the body to be covered by vest or whatever.
any ideas? thoughts?

I carry my only rail hand gun the Kimber Warrior, in one of Lou Alessi's
new PCH IWB models, made with a body guard. Love the holster.
I also have one of Lou's Talon Plus I carry the Warrior in. That is for what I call a house holster.
Both are IWB and work well. I have used Lou's leather for years. All my SIG's had a Talon plus holster.
