The 1791 Gunleather optic cut holster comes in several different variants depending on what style of blaster you’re looking to carry. They are as follows: BH2.4S, BH2.4, BH2.1, BH 2.1, BH1s, BH1, and the BHC.

That’s a ton of holsters, right? So let’s break it down. 

Every single one of those holsters is a leather open-top optic cut holster, ranging from 4-5 inch barrels of varying sizes, that run an FBI forward cant. The only major exception is the BHC, a compact design to work with the Glock 43. Additionally, the BH2.4S, BH2.4, and BH2.1 are all multi-fit holsters, while the BH1 & BH1S are for the 1911 and the “Commander” size 1911, respectively.
