I replaced my well-worn Miami Classic with a new Miami Classic II. I wasn't expecting the change in the thumb break. The strap is about 1/8" too short, even when I jam the 1911 in as far as it can possibly go. I even took out the rubber bushing for the tension screw to maybe give it more travel, but it was in as far as it would go. I remember having to stretch the strap on my first Miami Classic, but I don't remember it being this tight. I don't know if it's going to reach without using some sort of leather stretcher or water or something. Has anyone else had problems with the new (it could be ten years old, for all I know) design of the thumb strap?
