    Need holster for Galco shoulder rig

    For many years I have owned a Galco, I believe it is an SS2, shoulder rig. It is marked Lg Fr Auto, and has the off side double mag pouch for single stack mags. Although it obviously not for a 1911, it will hold one. It is not a good fit and with the thumb snap over the slide of a cocked & locked 1911, I can work the gun out of the holster without opening the thumbsnap. I don't think the gun would fall out under normal use, but it's still not acceptable to me. I could buy a new Galco holster for it, but as I understand, Galco 1911 holsters are made for hammer down carry. This is also unacceptable. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good cocked and locked carry holster that will fit the Galco harness ?

    Post Go with an ALESSI if possible

    They are available for a full size Colt 1911.
    No retention strap at all.
    They have the "pull through" snap in the location of the front of the trigger guard.
    You just tug the firearm - the trigger guard unsnaps the snap and the gun is out - in your hand and ready for presentation.

    It's a retention system designed by Lou Alessi that works incredibly well.

    I have one of the pull throughs for 1911. I was a little concerned at first even knowing Lou's reputation. After getting it I love it. I think it is the best shoulder rig out there.



    with it on.
    Carry 24-7 or guess right.

    I have a holster made by Lou and he is an excellent craftsman. However, I have no problem with a thumbsnap shoulder holster and prefer it.
