Question Western holster

I have been looking around for a not too expensive OWB holster.
I have found these ones on ebay. Never heard of them but I actually like them.
Considering the cost I was thinking about giving it a try.
What do you think? Has anybody had any experience with them?

Or, do you have positive experience with similar holster at similar prices and that you would recommend?

I think a lot would depend on if you are going to use it as OWB "concealed" or OWB "open carry"? Looks a little Texas BBQ type holster and I am not saying that is a bad thing. Just depends on your main purpose.

Definitely open carry. Since this is a 'concealed carry' section I should have been more specific, my bad.

The one in your ebay link says it is for a 5" 1911, not sure which Kimber you want to use it with.
The other thing to consider is it states "belt loop is about 2inches" I think you might have a problem with it flopping up and down!

I went to the Web site and looked at the pictures.

Was it the holster, or the gun, that was "antiqued"?

The holster shown in your link is designed to push the grip area out away from the body. As in easy access, as in quick draw. Even in an open carry situation, short of being on my property with my family, I would not wear a gun in a manner that presents easy access to anyone close by.
