Wrap your 1911 in a glad bag. Insert the tightly wrapped gun into the holster. Leave overnight.

Take it out the next day and viola! If it doesn't loosen it enough, try it again overnight.

yes this helps me all the time . And if it is really tight I still wrap the gun in a bag and sometimes two bags or more and soften the leather by heating it up with a hairdryer or by leaving it on the dashboard of my car in the sun . This will soften it up and then you stuff the gun wrapped in the baggies and leave it over night .

Put some saddle soap on the holster and then put the gun in a freezer bag and let it sit all evenin and through the night.
