I believe I have a Blackhawk SERPA style for my 4" that is OWB and features their level II ( I think ) finger retention system. I can't seem to find it in a quick search, but I will post a picture tonight of it and get the name for you if you like...
Yeah, I have tried about everything out there, including an awesome Milt Sparks custom, but I won't turn the knife and show you that one.
Here's teh Blackhawk, but I was wrong about one thing, it does NOT have the Level II finger release, it is only the Level I with the screw retention system, but I took the picture with my unloaded T3 in the holster, hanging upside, so you can see that it works. That one should go here:
This one is the C1310 from Blackhawk, and I believe it is built for the full size, which I also have and occassionally carry. I am trying the paddle, quick on-off style that came with the unit at the moment. Turns out I too hate it, but I needed to try it for myself before I believed all the internet hype.
Both my leather rigs are FBI Cant Open Top as well. I really prefer that on my hip, it just feels natural. The Blackhawk in the picture is actually set up the same way with the self adjustable screw set.
I don't know of anyone carrying a 1911 with the leather strap between the hammer and slide, but to each his own. *shrug*
