Galco, one of the largest manufacturers of holsters and accessories for LE and civilian use, has added to its popular Royal Guard 2.0 holster line-up with an option for the Glock 43X handgun with or without optics.
The Galco Royal Guard 2.0 holster is constructed from premium rough side out horsehide, which helps to make the holster more durable and stable against the wearer’s pants. With the rough side of the hide on the outside, the inside is the smooth side of the horsehide against the handgun, allowing for a slicker draw feel.
The horsehide that is used for the Royal Guard 2.0 gives the holster a smooth gun pocket for a good draw. The metal-reinforced mouth makes it easy for holstering, even one-handed holstering. The Royal Guard 2.0 also has a butt-forward cant to the design that increases the handgun’s concealability, especially when it is worn behind what Galco refers to as a strong hip.
Galco takes the comfort of the user one step further with the horsehide holster with the addition of the raised sweat guard which protects the user and the handgun during use. To finish up with the holster, the body of the holster is the natural tan color of the horsehide and has removable black belt loops that fit a belt up to 1¾” wide. Galco offers replacement tan and back loops in other colors (1¼”, 1 ½”, and 1¾”) so the user can customize the appearance.
Currently, the Galco Royal Guard 2.0 is available in a right-hand draw only but has options for the Glock 43X with and without a red dot and Glock 43X MOS with or without the presence of a red dot optic. The holster has an MSRP of $209.
