"Rhodesian" style holster

So, I recently dropped a Browning Hi Power off with MARS custom, which got me thinking/looking at holsters.  I've had a Kramer IWB for it, from years back when I had my other BHPs, so I was looking at range type holsters. I'm sure I could use the various 1911 holsters I have around, but would prefer a BHP specific one.
I've always like the the look of the Rhodesian style holster, especially rough out natural color.

Rafter L makes one and is highly thought of....$185 ...$75 for a mag pouch...wow

Other makers would be the original Thad Rybka,  & Rob Hipp.

Warbird Leather makes a range holster that is very close to a Rhodesian. I emailed him and he sent a very detailed list of options. He just doesn't make it in natural. Though I'm thinking his dark brown/spice color might be a better option.

I've got a Blackhills holster in black rough out for a 1911, it looks like his "Austin", though its marked Speed Holster....his response to my inquiry is he could make it any way i want...ie: straight drop, rough out natural...but...it's not a true Rhodesian, with my main concern is the width of the belt loop...front to back..

I suppose It doesn't have to be a true to the original Rhodesian..

Any thoughts?

I've been using some of my old original Eagle Industries Unlimited nylon holsters for my BHPs. They were originally made to fit the Glock 17, but they fit the BHPs perfectly.

They are the SAS short drop leg style. I like them because they are kind of retro, having been made about 20 years ago.
