    I just picked up a kimber ultra carry 2 and now I'm on the hunt for a holster. I'd like to carry iwb possibly appendix, does anybody have any experience with a 3" 1911 or holster suggestions? So far all I can find is stealth gear USA. Will it fit in holsters made for any 3" or will it need to be specific to the ultra carry2? Any help is appreciated

    Check into the quality leather makers. All will have options for your pistol. Don't skimp on the holster. Quality makes are best for comfort and reliability.

    So far I'm not having a lot of luck finding them for this gun even leather. The few I've found are almost all owb and the few iwb have not been compatible with appendix carry which is why I wonder if any holster for a 3" 1911 will work because that might just open more options.

    Have you checked G-code? They list an Incog Eclipse made for a 3" subcompact 1911.

    High Noon Holsters has plenty of options both leather and kydex. I have a 4" 1911 that I carry in one of their hybrid iwb.

    Werkz holsters lists their Minimalist IWB as being available for the Kimber 1911 Ultra (3" - no rail). I have one of their OWB Origin holsters for a Glock 19. Very good quality and great customer service. It should work for the Ultra 2, but an email to verify that wouldn't hurt (they have always been quick to respond to any questions I've had).

    Being a 1911 pattern gun the particular to look for is primarily barrel length. Grip length also. I believe your gun is a 3" barrel on an officer sized frame.
    Something like the milt sparks summer special would work and there many other makers
    Andrews leather
    Garrett Ind. (Leather lined kydex)
    Tucker gun leather

    He offers officer model in his holsters for the 1911 and will do custom if you talk to him directly.

    I carry appendix and bought an excellent kydex from YouTuber Last Line of defense. I have zero complaints. It has great retention, it disappears under clothing and it is as comfortable as IWB carry can be.

    I really like Custom Carry Concepts' holsters, especially for AIWB.

    I have an Alien Gear Hybrid for my 3" EMP which I believe is a bit smaller than a 3" 1911. The EMP was redesigned for 9mm so it's a tad smaller but is super comfortable at 3:00 carry IWB. I don't carry appendix but Incog makes a good kydex holster that is perfect for appendix. I have one for my G19 but it's not comfortable for 3:00 carry.
