The other day I was rummaging around in a box that I found in the shop of my local gun dealer. This box measured 6' x 3' x 4' and was filled about half full of holsters produced by various manufacturers. Several were very nice Galco left-hand paddle holsters. I was thrilled to find a new Bianchi 111 Cyclone right-hand holster for my 5" Springfield Mil-Spec 1911 pistol. It was so new that I could hardly get my pistol to fit. After several days it now fits my pistol very well indeed. According to the Bianchi website, the belt slots on this holster measure 1.75/45mm inches. I am wanting to find a belt that will be a good tight fit so that the holster will stay put when I am using it. Surely there are those at this site who have bought leather goods such as holsters and belts for carrying similar type pistols. I would appreciate suggestions as to what would be the best choice of manufacturer, etc. If it is important, I measure 37 inches at the waist. Sincerely. Brucev. 1.75/45mm Wanna kill these ads?
