I need a holster!

So I have the Aegis Elite Custom with the Vortex optics. I am having trouble finding a holster for it. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum nmanzie, your best bet may be to try calling some of the holster makers, it's a new gun in the Kimber line.

How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership.

I have the exact same model Kimber, but use it for a range gun. I'd suggest considering getting the 1911 holster you prefer, then have a saddle maker or leather smith modify it for the optic.

Or just contact the maker of your choice and see if they'll consider a custom job. You may be the first to ask, and give them an example of the gun for tooling up. One of the smaller makers may consider it.

I love this gun, and love how it shoots even more. Enjoy yours.

Dara lists Kydex for Kimber 5in 1911 (no rail) with cut for optic. Whether or not that suppressor height front sight will be an issue....?

That gun is too sexy for a holster. You should carry it around in your hand, ready to go. Just my 2

Are you finding it likes some ammo better than others? My other Kimbers are real particular it seems to the Sig's elite performance...
