Ok first off i am debating on buying a TRP or other railed 1911. If i buy one i plan on putting a weapon mounted light on it. Does any one have or know of a quality holster maker that can make a holster for my needs. I have not had a chance to get ahold of mitch rosen or Milt Sparks so i dont know if they can help me or not. Thank you

Try www.andrewsleather.com there building a shoulder holster for my Colt Marine and will also work with my other 1911s...they use a retention screw.

See you want a light mounted holster...call him! Not sure if he builds them with light! Give Garrett a call he used to make them!

I'm pretty sure neither Rosen or Sparks make a holster for a gun with a light mounted. Most makers will make a holster for a railed 1911 though.

I think Pure Kustom makes a holster for a light bearing 1911. http://www.purekustomholsters.com

There are a lot of makers that make duty holsters for guns with lights mounted, if that is what you are looking for. There are also a lot of options in kydex. Raven Concealment Systems Phantom is one kydex option. http://www.ravenconcealment.com

You didn't ask, but in general (I would say in all cases, but there must be an exception), a holster made for gun with the light mounted won't work if you don't have the light mounted.

There really isn't a big market for concealment holsters for guns with mounted lights.

There is a big difference in rails, to. Some have full length, and others are half length. You'll need to specify to the holster maker.

Need Top quality Holster

Thanks for the input. I cant find the holster i am wanting in leather. Any one have any experience with a good IWB holster with weapon mounted light in Kydex. I dont want a cheap holster but one that is comfortable and will last a long time. Or maybe i will just stick to the non railed 1911 or buy a railed and a drop leg that fits with weapon mounted light. So if any one has suggestions for a IWB and drop leg holster for the weapon mounted light? I would appreciate it. Or any other holsters for a non railed leather holster. I have a milt Sparks and Mitch Rosen holster already but am interested in another brand that is just as good in IWB and OWB. I have tried Desanties, Galco and Lots of others but I would like suggestions on what quality holsters that you would suggest. I like Galcos but they dont compare to my mitch. But would like to find other holsters that are just as good. Sorry for the long explanation and i appreciate your help. Look forward to your input. Thanks Ricky

The holsters from both of the makers I listed above, Pure Kustom and Raven Concealment, can be worn IWB.

A gun with a mounted light is a lot to stick in your pants. Somebody on the forum has the IWB mounts for their Raven Phantom for a light mounted S&W M&P. I believe they described the feeling is like sticking a dinner plate in their pants.

I have a Raven Phantom for a Government model, without the light option. It is a slim holster, but it takes up a lot space front to back. I'm pretty sure, if I had a light capable holster, I'd have some trouble finding a large enough flat space on my body to carry that holster IWB.

There are lots of kydex options along the lines of the Raven Concealment Phantom. They are all pretty similar with just small detail differences.

Blade-Tech offers a different design. More like the wraparound style like your Summer Special. http://shop.blade-tech.com/holster-wtaclight-c-1_13_18.html#.UrorBP2vvHg

Black Hills has some leather models for lights. https://blackhillsleather.com/concealed-leather-holster/inside-the-waist.html

I appreciate all the help guys. I decided not to go with a Railed 1911. Instead i bought another M&P Pro 5" only this time in the Core. I also Bought me a RRA LAR-8 and began adding everything from Bi pod to Tactical optic. Im new to long range so this should be fun. Im going to carry the Core and finish another Springfield i have been working on and make it tactical as i can get minus Rail. I have carried this sprinfield for over 25000 rounds now and want a Kydex holster that not only works for my needs but looks the part as well and some of you hit the mark with the links you posted. You all made my decisions easier and now i know what my plans are. Thanks for all the info and places to look. I am always in need of 1911 holsters and now i have options i didn't know existed. Thank you very very much!
