1791 Gunleather adds optics-ready holster models to catalog as red dot sighted pistols grow in popularity.
1791 Gunleather Optics Ready Holster Options:
- Standard Belt Holster
- Paddle Holster
- Ultra Custom Belt Holster
If you keep up to date on CCW trends, you’ve likely already upgraded your carry piece to one with a red dot sight. Innovations in electronic technology have allowed red dots to be smaller, cheaper and have longer battery lives, making those of us who still carry with irons look like veritable Luddites. There was a time when even finding a holster to accommodate your optically assisted blaster was difficult, but that's finally starting to change. 1791 Gunleather has recognized this trend and expanded their line of optics-ready holster options, now offering them for a larger selection of pistols in a wider variety of styles.
1791 Gunleather introduced their first optics-ready holster in 2020, however, it was only sized to accommodate full-sized pistols. As the selection of available carry pistols and pistol red dots expanded over this past year, holster manufacturers were forced to keep up. That’s why 1791 Gunleather’s new series of optics-ready holsters were designed to accommodate the most popular pistol models in three different OWB holster styles.
All 1791 Gunleather holsters are made using 100% American steer hide leather through a process that combines old-world techniques with modern innovation. The standard belt and paddle holster designs are made specifically for several popular CCW options ranging from Glock, Sig, 1911 and others. The Ultra Custom holster options can accommodate an even wider range of pistol models with the added ability to custom mold the leather to your gun, creating a Kydex-like fit.
MSRP for the standard belt holsters starts at $59.99 and goes up to $99.99 for the Ultra Custom models.
