A light or laser on your defensive pistol can help you make the shot when it matters the most. However, mounting a laser or light on a gun you carry with you every day means finding a holster that will fit both your gun and your light or laser. It’s one thing to find a comfortable, safe holster for your pistol and another thing altogether to find one that fits your pistol and whatever accessories you may add to your gun.

Now 1791 Gunleather is introducing the first Ultra Custom Light Bearing Holster in its lineup. This new holster eliminates the need for matching your gun and attached light/laser combo with a specific holster. The new Ultra Custom Light Bearing Holster features 1791 Gunleather’s patented Memory-Lok technology, which gives you the comfort of a leather holster with the retention benefits of a Kydex holster. The outside-the-waistband holster of the Ultra Custom allows for molding and re-molding for endless customization and gives you the freedom to pair your handgun with your accessories of choice.

The ultra-soft cowhide on the front and durable steer hide on the back provide a tough yet comfortable construction, and the high sweat guard gives you added protection for everyday carry.

The Ultra Custom Light Bearing Holster has an optic cut that can accommodate most pistol optics, and the holster design fits most accessories that fit on either the rail or trigger guard of your pistol. The Ultra Custom Light Bearing Holsters are compatible with a wide variety of handguns and are available in three different models. 

Like all 1791 Gunleather products, Ultra Custom Light Bearing Holsters are backed by a lifetime warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee.

MSRP for the Ultra Custom Light Bearing Holsters varies by model. For more information on these holsters or other products from 1791 Gunleather, please visit
