There have been numerous variations of the famous Bruce Nelson designed summer special style holster over the years, many are excellent and some leave something to be desired. Due to consumer demand, we have crafted what we think is an optimized variation of this famous design. The NEW Wilson Combat« Summer Companion features a stitched-in sight track for a smooth draw and clean sight picture. It's made with the premium cowhide "rough side" out to help stabilize the holster for a consistent draw. Double "hard action" snap loops will accommodate up to 1.5" belt widths and of course the top of the holster remains open to allow easy/safe one handed holstering. As with most Wilson Combat« holsters the Summer Companion features a backpiece that locks the thumb safety in the "safe" position on 1911 models and protects the back side of the pistol from body perspiration. Meets I.D.P.A. holster criteria.

Fits The Following Handguns

  • Compact 1911 - 4" Barrel
  • Commander 1911 - 4 ╝" Barrel

*Note-hand molded leather holsters are often tight when new and usually require some break-in prior to use.  We recommend letting the gun sit holstered with a heavy plastic freezer bag or wax paper around it. Sitting holstered overnight will usually reduce tension.

One of the first holsters Ive had that was right out of the box perfect. I carry my Bill Wilson Carry pistol with it and enjoy every minute.
Having been a 1911 shooter for many years, I have searched the world over for an inside-the-waistband holster that was both comfortable and provided maximum concealment. Like many, I at one time had a box full of holsters that never really made the grade. Some came close to meeting my highly demanding specifications but just never crossed the finish line in first place. After having the opportunity to work with Wilsons version of Bruce Nelsons holster, I believe I have found the golden goose. Its comfortable, distributing the pistols weight evenly; and does a great job of concealing my compact Wilson 1911. The Summer Companion is extremely well made and can be obtained in leather and exotic materials such as shark skin or elephant hide. I have the shark skin model and it looks great as well. If I could change anything about this holster, it would be the name. Summer Companion suggests that this is a rig best suited for the summer months. Wrong! This holster should be called Constant Companion because it will perform its job beautifully throughout each and every season.
Ordered for my Kimber Stainless Pro Raptor II and was extremely pleased with the quality, looks and fit. This was my first order from Wilson and I couldnt be happier with the quick turn-around and delivery. In a word, Outstanding. Now I have to save up for the matching belt and magazine carrier. Just get off the dime and order it know you want it.
This is by far the most comfortable, well-made IWB holster I have come across. My BWC 1911 fits perfectly and securely! Even with my belt pulled tightly around me the opening does not collapse, making single-handed reholstering quick and easy. Concealment is exceptional! The backpiece adds a great deal of comfort and gun/skin protection to an already outstanding product. All pros and no cons! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOLSTER!!! By the way, it accomidates belts up to 1.75 inches in width!
I ordered this holster for carrying a compact 1911. It far exceeds my expectations. I have a couple other holsters that cost twice as much but are not near as well made. I HIGHLY recommend it!
Much Better Than Expected
I have many holsters that cost more than this one but the Craftsmanship on this one is right up there with the more expensive ones. Very nice Holster. I highly recommend it!
