Tribute for a 1911-stunning leather. We always try and pick the best aspects and character of each piece of hide that we use.
A fitting memorial to Roy Baker, of Magnolia Arkansas, the father of the Pancake holster design. Roy’s Hidden Thunder concept allowed detectives, off duty police officers and concealed weapons toting citizens to easily wear and conceal large autoloaders and big revolvers. The Tribute is very similar to Roy Baker’s pancake holsters, but we make them from thicker high quality leather. These holsters protect the gun very well.
If your Department requires a thumb break this is the way to go. Otherwise, we recommend the Sourdough, Cuda, or Silver Dollar Pancake Holsters. No snaps or straps in the way and excellent retention.
This is the most popular model for GIs. We can make this holster with MOLLE straps, so you can wear this on your plate carrier, on your belt or chest. The Cuda is a version of this holster without the thumb break. These Tribute pancakes are built for 1911's to be carried with the hammer back & safety on. (Cocked & Locked). This holster is not designed for single action firearms or hammerless guns.
Note: The Tribute is for Some Autoloaders and 4″ or shorter revolvers only. Check out our Sourdough Pancake™ for longer barrels.
Note: Black leather with carving are not a good combo. Oxblood or tan are a better choice.
