John Ralston and his company 5-Shot leather are well known for making some of the best leather pistol holsters on the planet. So it comes as no surprise that Wilson Combat would seek out Ralston when it was looking to create a leather holster of its own.

The joint project resulted in Wilson Combat’s latest limited run of handmade holsters: The Deluxe Quick Snap.

The beautifully crafted and well-designed Deluxe Quick Snap uses a combination of a snap belt loop along with a molded rear tunnel loop for more flexible belt placement than a traditional scabbard without any loss of rigidity. The elegant Lou Alessi-inspired design has been masterfully recreated by Ralston.

The Deluxe Quick Snap features fine leather construction with a full sweat guard and shark skin accent. The molded sweat guard locks the thumb safety “On Safe” and prevents the pistol from abrading your clothing.

Wilson Combat’s general purpose, outside the waistband holster is made of the finest 8-ounce domestic cowhide, finished in a classic antique brown and given a reinforcing trim of black shark skin.

  • Classic Outside the Waistband design
  • FBI cant
  • Impeccably constructed brown cowhide with black shark trim
  • 1.5-inch Tunnel belt loop plus rear “Quick Snap”
  • Molded sweat guard

The Deluxe Quick Snap holster retails for $239.95 and is available now.
