Leather holster for Kimber 1911 Desert Warrior

I guess I'll need to have a custom holster for my Kimber 1911 45 Desert Warrior TSR SOC.
Any suggestions with link would be appreciated. Want leather and thumb break OWB and matching mag(s) pouches.
For reference, this is the exact gun. Will need to accommodate the crimson trace.

Leather holster for Kimber 1911 Desert Warrior

Good luck with that. Finding something that will hold that gun AND laser, especially in leather wont be easy. Youd have to go Kydex or at least a Kydex shell hybrid.
Squeezing the gun into just leather with the laser, would be a feat. I can see the laser triggering every time a little twist happens or upon entry.

If you remove the laser, a nice leather pancake holster will work.

That's where the thumb break will come in handy. Loose enough for a light or laser. Have to find a good leather master who wants a challenge.
Not a fan of Kydex. A cool gun like this deserves nice leather.

As I said, good luck. I have the same gun minus the threaded barrel.
If it were any other laser or light, no prob. But that hunk of junk laser does not leave many options. Not even in Kydex. Trust me, I looked. I didnt buy the gun for that laser. Id rather use a TLR-2G or something that would work better and give you a nice tactical light to boot.

The laser is a problem, but the laser was just a bonus to me. Have a guy in Northern Oklahoma that thinks he can do it but will need the gun for a few days.
He's done a holster for me and his work is solid.
We have lots of craftsmen (here in Oklahoma) that work with leather. From top shelf saddles, boots and holsters, but this is a different duck.
Hoping I might find one here that's done one for this duck. Ha!
I'll go with a local and see how it comes out.
