The plan is CCW under a light jacket ...So your points are consistent with mine...
It also the reason I moved away from a carved pattern , who would know ? , except me and I'd not have the view anyway   :-\

I have all but ruled out the S.D. Myers pattern ,  I have made a  Brill pattern I may give are try ....
But I think the H.H. Heiser style is my Daisy .
A carved holster would be there in the event you want to go without a jacket. I look forward to seeing what you finally decide on.

Uh, no.  A Colt costs around 2 grand if you can find one, and a full engraving job from a master engraver varies but can be had for 2 or 3 grand.

A Colt made in 1880 and fully engraved at the time by Colt might run 20 grand.

But yeah, I shoot the heck out of engraved Uberti conversions and love every minute of that as well!
I'm talking about a FACTORY engraved Colt.  Take a trip over to their website, and if you nose around you'll see their form for a custom SAA or 1911, and there you will find pricing...but make sure you're wearing your seatbelt.

Welcome from Arkansas! Is that top right gun a 1917? Cylinder looks a bit short to me.
1916 New Service with all the appropriate British proof marks, un-cut in .455.

Welcome.
Could you give us a little more info on your Colts?

Slim
Talk about my guns?  Well, I don't normally do such things, hahaha...

Clockwise
1916 New Service in .455 Webley
1938 Officers Model Target in .22lr
1979 Python
2011 .38 Super (and those are real elephant ivory grips)
2018 SAA in .45 Colt (and those are real fake ivory grips)
1862 Model 1849 .31 - 6 shot with the less common 6" barrel, all numbers matching and I have the original military flap holster it was carried in (which is a bit fragile)

That's nice alright , but a left hand (only one left ) also @ 4.75 is about 1 " to long  :-\
not to mention his cost ....

I thing the Mex loop will be sort of odd looking on a shorter holster   :-\

I really like the Brill , just not sure its the best for the EMP , hence my pattern work up,  if I like it then I may get the Brill

Another guy that is doing the Brill style holster is Barranti Leather in Pennsylvania.

He does excellent work but is not cheap. Here is a Brill style holster that he has in stock on his page but it is for a SAA.

He also does the Myres style holsters.

Between the Heiser and the Meyers, I'd take the Heiser because of the stitched toe. That's a mighty good looking holster. That will have less of a tendency to snag clothing or push your jacket out at the bottom, making it less conspicuous than the Heiser when carrying. Probably better in that regard than a Brill, too. Less leather in it, as well, so it wouldn't weigh quite as much, although that's a nit-picky point. If you're going to wear it out in the open, then any of the three would do fine and it's just your preference for looks.
