I've got the same SIG 1911R-SSS and I haven't had much trouble finding holsters that fit. The search feature on CalGuns is lacking, but you can easily find past threads using Google.

Check this out for details, I posted a bunch of stuff on here as others have as well:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=558050

I'll repost it here for ease of convenience.

I have these three:

Galco CON612B - I wear it a lot in winter with long sweatshirts or jackets
You can buy them for around $70 or so, but this is the Galco link. This is my favorite holster, and I have one for my HK USP40 as well. It fits really tight initially, but molded right in after a day or two of wearing the holster. It fits perfectly now, and it's super comfortable.

Galco King Tuk (KT212B) Fits 1911, 5" rail guns - I wear this all summer under T-shirts
This holster also fits my Springfield TRP full rail. They run around $50.

The holster should be worn in the 4 o'clock position of thereabouts. This guy is wearing it way to far around at the 5 o'clock position, I move it around another belt loop to the better fitting and more easily accessible 4 o'clock position.

Blackhawk Serpa - I rarely wear this holster. It was a cheap range holster. It works, but meh...
Some guys love them, some guys hate them. With proper training, you won't have a problem. I can hit the release lever and my finger is always over the frame, and never the trigger. Higher profile, but durable and nice when hiking around or climbing over stuff where a leather holster with only basic retention might be a problem, this thing holds on tight until the lever is pushed. About $50 or so. I'd find one in a gun store, and ask the guys to let me test fit it to my gun. Good gun stores will let you test for fit.

I currently have the Cadillac of holsters on order. Milt Sparks VM-2. I ordered 2 of them, one for my Sig 1911R, and one for my Springfield TRP. Super nice and top of the line as far as holsters go. The downside is the 4-5 month lead time. Quality usually takes time. The only Sig 1911 holster they offer is for the railed GSR, which is essentially the identical profile to the 1911R with the standard 5" Government barrel.

Thx for the post, perhaps I should go directly for the VM-2 ?

However I don't see it listed on their website at the moment.

I ordered both of my holsters by calling Milt Sparks. They have a 16-20 week wait time, but it's worth the wait. The time will come and go regardless, so I went ahead and ordered them anyway. I talked to one of the guys there, and he said that the only Sig 1911 holster within the hand boned / molded VM-2 line was the railed GSR.

After extensive research on the 1911Forum.com site in the Sig section, I was able to get a solid response that the GSR is the same profile as the newer 1911R in the Government size. You can order them with different sized belt loops and kydex clips. I ordered both for each holster.

You could order the VM-2, and get a cheap holster for the time being while you wait. That's pretty much what I did. I can only have two guns on my permit, that's why everything I've mentioned is pretty much focused around the 1911R and the TRP models.

The reason the Milt Sparks VM-2 is superior to most other holsters is fairly obvious. Top notch hand stitched profile, hand boned and highly detailed work, spring metal within the opening to assure an open holster mouth during reholstering, and made to fit precise models. They could double their shop and still stay swamped with orders, but they've chosen to maintain a select staff to assure high grade craftsmanship. There are a lot of really nice holsters out there, and the Milt Sparks holsters are right up there with the best of them.

I've had great success using Walter at spetzgear.com for custom kydex holsters.

He's made OWB, IWB, and pocket holsters for me for a wide variety of guns and frames, including FN USG (5.7), Kahr PM9 (with crimson trace), S&W 357 performance center (with rail and reflex sight).

You can specify color, side, iwb, owb, pocket, cant, etc...

Typical lead time is 2weeks.

Galco is the way to go. It takes some time and effort to break it in but it will last you a lifetime.

Still looking around, need one that can accommodate the rail.

Somewhat nervous about purchasing one online, anyone know any shops in San Diego that I could go to and test out a holster before purchasing?

I was curious if that plastic holster that came with my Springfield will scratch my stainless or not.

I would think not, but I'd hate to find out the hard way...

Springfield plastic holsters are junk.

Make sure the holster you're buying is for the SIG 1911, and not just a 1911 as the Sig's are profiled differently.

I've had some trouble finding the right holster for my Sig 1911, enough so that I've considered selling it and getting another 1911 w/ rail that has the normal/traditional profile.

I have the exact same 1911. I just took it out for its maiden voyage last night. Beautiful gun.

Hi, I have an extra 1911 rail holster NIB from Safariland. It's a police holster but is well used for carry. It's new in the box and has never been used. It fits my 1911's with rails and even my SA TRP Operator with full rail which is the biggest 1911 out there.

I'd take $40 for it. I think it was $80 new. It's safariland so you know it's quality. Black kydex and interior is suede to keep from marking the gun.

I doubt the Sig 1911 would fit in it.
