Update- Despite the disclaimer made above I am still having customers buy this holster and getting upset that it isnt a plug and play holster and requires fitting to work on some guns. I know its an expensive holster but it is not a magical fix. Its like a custom, precision part that needs fitting. Please do not buy this holster unless you understand this. Chuck

We have found that there are several types of para frames out on the market. It seems the older frames had a trigger guard which was pretty much identical to the standard 1911 as made by Colt and Springfield and many others.
However, more recent para's have a thinner trigger guard. The shape and contour is still the same, but it is actually narrower. Where a 1911 is about 3mm thick, the newer paras are about 2.5mm.
This half mm is enough to make the gun rock a lot in our holster, as there is no muzzle support. Not an ideal situation all around. We deal with lots of 1911 issues - there are so many models out there... STI makes several types of 1911 guns, and they themselves have 3 or 4 types of trigger guards!
Compounding the problem is the fact that due to the round profile of the 1911/para trigger guard, even with a very good fit in the holster, the gun can still rotate a little around the radios of the trigger guard itself. That is a problem as well. It kind of depends on what the expectations of the customer are, and what he is comparing to. Our holster will hold the 2011 frame much better. But if you compare our 1911 to other race holsters - ours is better.

We are extremely proud to present our new Race Master Competition Holster to the shooting world. Designed by Saul Kirsch, and with valuable input from Angus Hobdell, more than 30 years of top-level competition experience contributed to its design. After nearly two years in development, we can say with confidence that this is indeed the next stage in competition holster evolution. Try one, and we are sure you will agree!
We set out to develop a new holster with the following goals in mind:
• To offer the best and most advanced release system on the market
• To offer a wide range of position adjustments – and to hold those settings rock solid
• To offer both a fully locked safety feature and tension adjustment capabilities
• To allow the user to change from one gun type to another without having to buy a complete new holster
• To look sharper and cooler than any other race holster out there
The blocks do work in both the right and left hand models.
The following video links provide additional information in customization of your holster, adjustments that may be needed to it, and block insert replacement.
