I did the same thing to an Uncle Mike holster but the plastic strap on the back split in less than a year.

TEEP: YEARS AGO I PUT UNCLE MIKE's HOLSTERS ON MY "DO NOT BUY" LIST BECAUSE THE PLASTIC STRAP ON THE BACK BREAKS SOONER THAN LATER. UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO REPLACE IT WITH SOME GOOD WEBBING, SOONER THAN LATER YOU WILL BE SORRY.

HAVING SAID THIS, I DO NOT KNOW IF THE PLASTIC STRAPS ARE OF BETTER QUALITY THESE DAYS.

Rey, all the straps on my Uncle Mike's are cloth/webbing. Never broke or come loose.

DOC: ON THE UNCLE MIKE HOLSTERS AND AMMO CARRIERS I HAVE HAD THEY SEWED A PIECE OF PLASTIC ON THE BACKSIDE TO MAKE THE LOOP THE BELT GOES THRU, IT IS THAT PLASTIC THAT DOES NOT HOLD UP. ON THE AMMO CARRIERS I REPLACED THE PLASTIC WITH SOME GOOD WEBBING, NO PROBLEMS SINCE.

45MAN: I've put Uncle Mike items on my don't buy list also. There was less than 1/4" still holding the belt loop. Had my 686 with the Vortex Venom hit the rocks I would not have been a happy hunter.

Rey, I guess I'm the weird one of the bunch here. Never had problem one for 20+ years of use with my scoped revolvers in my hooded holsters. The backing you're talking about has never given me problem. I've carried a RSB .454 with Bushnell 2-6 scope since they came out. Never a problem with it. All the sewing is still in place.
Even carried a scoped 8" Dan Wesson in one. No problems. That's a heavy gun.
I'll keep using mine. No competition from me for leather holsters.
