Great fitting holster. Rides tight and high on the side. Springfield EMP fits very nice, GREAT JOB!!!

Alessi delivers again
Years ago; I purchased a Springfield EMP 1911 in .40 S/W for a CCW. Alessi LEATHER was a requirement for this for this firearm.
I have a CQBS holster for a Gov't Ed Brown 1911 and based upon the fit on this holster; I purchased a holster for the Springfield EMP 40.
Gentlemen, (& Ladies,) If you're looking for a holster that is comfortable, concealable, and MADE OF HAND FITTED LEATHER, do yourself a favor & consider an Alessi.
Alessi holsters kind of have a "click" when you holster them, they may not be classified as a "retention" holster, but I'd feel comfortable jogging with my Alessi (if I jogged)
As an aside; don't forget about your belt!
I purchased an Alessi belt for my 5" 1911's,
In my opinion, you will not go wrong with their belts in combination with their holsters;
there's no sag due to the liner of their belts.
Thank You Alessi!; In the current times of a throw-away world, you maintain integrity and produce a fine quality American Made Items(s)
