Has anyone ever tried the ones on Ebay labeled as "Amish" made gun belts? They look like decently made double thick belts and they are priced reasonably.

Kore is sending out a new leather belt due to the permanent bends and wear in the one I have. I find that good service.
As for the tactical, the loose nylon at the ends is going to happen with a nylon belt. They are always looking at ideas so who know if they will take up the idea of adding a short piece of leather as a guide to insert the end of the larger tactical belt through the loops.

Glad they did right by you , could you heat up the ends on the nylon to stop the fraying ?

Yes. Might use my heat gun but after a while it will probably start fraying again.

It doesn't get any better than Hanks Belt in my opinion. I own two and would never buy anything else.

I went ahead and ordered an Anson Gunbelt+buckle. Kore belt was $10 more and back ordered. Anson was $49 with free shipping. The leather is a nice deep even black with a polymer insert, and I chose a polished gunmetal buckle. The belt cut to size easy with scissors and a razor blade, buckle installation took 5 seconds. I have to say, I really love this belt. The track adjustments are excellent. The buckle is solid, but a little thick due to the type. Anson shipped same day and I had it 2 days later USPS. I will recommend this 100% for anyone looking for a great leather gunbelt under $50!

I've been wearing a Bullhide belt for the last 10 years with a 5 inch 1911. No sags or fold over.

Second leather belt indented just like the first. As for the tactical belt, end keep fraying; however, I only use that belt when out in the wild so not a "big" problem.
But I still like the track lock system vs. a standard buckle.

My 5 year old Bullhide belt is holding up well but since losing 30 lbs & making a couple new holes it's getting to long of a tail so I ordered a Bigfoot steel reinforced belt that arrived yesterday and only got to try it out for a few hours last night IWB carry & it's going to be a good one too.

I've been wearing my Kore belt for a couple of months now and overall am quite satisfied with it, I still wish they made a more rounded buckle.

I have the X1 which does have slightly rounded corners, I was thinking a more oval shape would not dig into my stomach as much when seated. Maybe not really possible because of the ratchet system. I just make sure the top of the buckle is below the top of my waistband and loosen it up a bit if I will be sitting for very long.

Set my belt by ratcheting the belt as normal ,then pushing out with my stomach open ratchet to that point . You get alittle wiggle room for comfort.

For the money, IMHO, you cannot beat the "30dollargunbelt.com" belts.

Incredible construction and very high quality belts. I swap out the buckles for 1.5" Hanks buckles or dress buckles depending on the day, but the leather itself if sturdy as can be.

I wasted a lot of money on low-end to mid-range belts in order to land on this one...
