OWB 1911 holster with THUMB BREAK Login/Join

I still have to find an OWB (THUMB BREAK) holster for my Commander size 1911 that goes over the rear of the slide PROPERLY, with the hammer cocked and locked.

I have purchased a Galco model and 1791Gunleather. Both Thumb break straps were too long on both makers. It loops higher than the rear of the slide. The GALCO one can even go over the cocked hammer. The thumb safety gets disengaged (when I practice carrying unloaded at home).

The 1791 Gunleather does not disengage the thumb safety. But the thumb break still did not properly fit.

Anyone found a good fitting 1911 OWB holster with a thumb break?

Thanks for the link Rogue. I watched the video where the gentleman explained that the thumb break can be too tight at times and how to break it in. I would rather have the thumb break really tight, than too long and it makes a loop. I just placed my order.

I received the Mitch Rosen holster today. Thanks for the recommendation again Rogue. The fitment is perfect. I added a picture of the new holster, and the last holster I purchased (and returned).

Looking good!

In that last photo, it appears the thumb break on that particular holster was designed to be used with the hammer down (uncocked).

The seller of the last holster specifically described it as "Cocked and Locked" holster in the Advertisement. That is why I purchased that holster. Too bad that it did not fit properly. I returned it. The material and stitching of that last holster was excellent. When I decide to purchase an open top 1911 holster, I will definitely consider them again.

But this Mitch Rosen is PERFECT fit.

The very first holster that came to my mind on seeing this thread title has already been suggested and purchased: Mitch Rosen. While I don’t use mine as much these days, I have that same holster sized for a Government Model.

I remember when calling-in to order it, I asked the associate on the phone if the holster was configured for cocked-and-locked carry, and was told that’s the only way they make them. Smile

Desantis makes one as well. I've got one for my S&W 1911, but I don't use it enough to recommend it.

I have a DeSantis holster that works fine on my full size 1911. I would imagine they'd have one in commander size
