Bianchi holster

Hey guys,

I just picked up a Bianchi IWB holster for my springer 1911A1 and man this thing is TIGHT. I expect some break-in time, but can anyone recommend a way to speed up the process just a tad?

This is one of the all leather models with a leather snap over the hammer, or under the hammer if you have the pistol cocked.

Get some rubbing alcohol and soak the leather. Wrap the gun in plastic wrap and put it in the holster, form the holster to the gun with your fingers and let it sit until it drys. Remove the gun and spray the holster with swaid treatment and you should be good to go.

Hope that helps.

The holster is already molded to fit the 1911. It's just "snug" it is actually getting easier to draw from, so I think she's getting broken in.

On another topic I've named my 1911 Betty for some reason dunno why, just seems to fit :)

just wrap a sheet of wax paper around the barrel of the gun, insert it into the holster and leave it overnight. If it is still tight repeat with 2 sheets of wax paper. Other ways may make the holster too loose.
