G-Code is half the price of a Safariland Holster, yet made with better grade, and more widely available materials. I have a 1911 with a Rail, and have a Blackhawk SERPA CQC Holster along with this one. Sorry GI, but I had gone directly to G-Code's website, and got mine that way, due to you being out of stock at the time of purchase. This has a similar layout to a Safariland 6004 series with the thumb button and the bial over the top. The G-Code XST is my choice for quality over other brands, including Blackhawk. This coupled with a G-Code Drop Leg Rig, is a perfect combination with next to zero movement and sitting higher up in the leg where it should be. I have a large hand, and with the way the XST Mounts to the Leg Rig, makes it easier for me to operate the button and bail. The one thing I wish to clarify is that with the 1911 Hammer Forward, the Bail still operates flawlessly for me. So if you loosen the retention screw, you should see the difference as I did. The weapon still stays holstered with the bail open, and holster upside down. Good enough for me. I am a Volunteer these days as a Range Instructor and Competition Shooter along with Airsoft. I have a Springfield 1911A1, which closely resembles my WE MEU. Both guns fit this holster with no adjustment between the two. The prices are ridiculously low compared to the prices of holsters of the same quality or layout. I started this sport with the Condor Universal Holster, and had issues that were shared on GITV with it dropping the magazine. If you want Bang for your Buck, then I put the approval of my Airsoft Team behind it.
As a side note for those new and experienced to Airsoft, Please exercise responsibilitywhile transporting, handling, and even firing your Airsoft Guns. I still hear some negative feedback about how teenagers are misusing Airsoft to fatal result for them. Treat all Firearms as the real thing, so we can keep our sport alive.

Excellent Material, Excellent Quality, Excellent Design, and just all around Awesome.
Has earned the trust and respect of the Airsoft Team I run, those of us in the Competitive Shooting Scene (Real), and a growing number of friends of mine serving in the Military.
Pricing is unheard of for anything this good, that a company is willing to adapt to Airsoft along with everyone else behind the trigger.
Solid doesn't even begin to dig in.
Could not get holster or leg platform here at GI when I purchased mine, because it was out of stock. Sorry guys, however this was my first place that I looked. Should end Cons on a positive note.
