View Full Version : Andrews Macdaniel II opinons from owners?

September 15, 2008, 04:56 PM
Can any owners give me opinions on this for a 1911? I've searched and some say it has too much movement and the metal snap on back can rub.

Others rave. I do like the multiple adjustability of this, but how well does this work and stay put?

Can anyone give some more honest opinions of concealability, comfort of this specific model?

Its a quality rig at a decent price point. Mine, I have two, both shift about unless I run two loops at one time. The only two other folks I know who've run them report the same; one right before they gave me theirs. That cures the shifting while eliminating the ability to adjust the cant while set up that way. That's not a problem for me, as it turns out I prefer the cant as it is with both loops. As for the hardware complaints, I've never noticed any rub.

Oh, and adding some locktite to the screws holding the loops might not be out of order, either.

What do you mean by running belt through two loops? The pix I see only have the one loop in rear.

"two loops?"

Yep. I attach both. (Oops, I have the MacDaniels II Crossdraw - same holster with the additional attachment point.)

"Sam is a fine guy."
