    I'm having a heck of a time finding a cross draw for a 1911. Any recommendations?

    Either you are going to have one custom made or make one yourself. I am not sure there is a big enough market for someone to produce them on regular bases

    Kirkpatrick Leather makes one. Can't vouch for the quality, etc. 'cause the two I just ordered haven't arrived yet. They look good.

    Bianchi used to make their Cyclone #111 for a 5" 1911. Maybe they still do. Nice holster.

    Galco would be another option.

    Simply Rugged "Cuda" or "Tribute" will allow strong side or cross draw. IWB too, if you buy the inside-out straps.

    Blackhawk is importing an excellent quality leather holster/mag pouch combo that's cut for either stong side or cross draw. Leather and workmanship is great and I have been using this rig in my rotation for more than 2 years.

    Try these makers for "old west" cross draw holsters. Heck, you could get the whole cowboy rig.

    Now that Cowboy Action Shooters and SASS have decided that given what was shown in the popular western, The Wild Bunch which takes place about 1914, the 1911 Colt .45 pistol is indeed a wild-west handgun. Thus I am sure you will find all kinds of western (movie) style leather will be available. Someone in the above links should also be able to fix you up.

    And looking in another direction, from about 1930 through the 1960's the Colt Automatic was popular with some Texas Rangers, who sometimes carried them in pairs, in fancy carved leather holsters with matching belts. Never noticed one in cross-draw however.
