The 1911 Keychain Adapter & Holster

Just when I think that there is enough tactical sh*t out there, Tactical has upped the ante yet again. Since, you know, just because, someone, everyone, needs to be able to holster their keys, is now offering a mini 1911 and holster to be able to mount your keys.

Supposedly manufactured by Blade-Tech (according to EHobbyAsia and the logos on the mini kit), the kit includes two components: the polymer handgun (which is equipped with an uber-tactical mini rail for mini-lights) and the holster complete with belt adapter. Looking at the screw pattern, its entirely possible, but not confirmed, that the holster could conceivably adapt with any of Blade-Tech’s various accessories.


The handgun itself slides into the holster with passive (i.e. Level I) retention that does not look adjustable. The key ring adapter ring runs through the heel of the grip with a larger flat key ring attached. Photos show at least a single key fob being held by the polymer wonder key holster, but no reports or specs on how much weight the holster and/or handgun could actually handle.

Dissapointingly, no report if the holster would work with Arsenal’s miniature handguns. 

One can pick up this tactical sh*t from for a measly $9.99

      I bet the TSA wouldn’t let it through.

      Cute though, thought about it for a briefly for my gun keys, but it would undermine security slightly.

        I already holster my keys in my grip-key. I love that thing.

        You are probably right. I’ve read that they made a kid give up Woody’s (obviously plastic and obviously toy gun, and made a woman flier who had pistols gembroidered on her Western style purse to cut them off or give up the purse.

        Didn’t somebody here say that they went to court with one of these, or something like it, and made them leave it behind?

  • Blade-tech handed these out at their booth at SHOT show. It was one of the few things I picked up at SHOT.

    SIG also has these but with a P226R instead of a 1911. And Blade-tech made these mini holsters for the Glock key chain first.

      I havent seen a glock holster. I have the Sig and Blade tech. Both are for 226. They work with the Glock keychain and my CZ P07 keychain.

      • The SIG P226R key chain with holsters are also by Blade-tech. So I wouldn’t be surprised if Blade-tech also handed them out.

        The Glock holster aren’t too common. I don’t think Blade-tech does them anymore. They didn’t have any at SHOT when I asked.

      Here is my collection of gun keychains.

  • No retention?

      Hey, if one’s not a cop or security and goign to be wrestling drunks with it on…

  • Okay – that’s kinda cool. And I’m so very jaded on the whole Tactical thing… but that’s cool.

  • Bigbigpoopi

    Damnit. Now I need ANOTHER car and house keys.

  • USMC03Vet

    MCPO? 30 years is way more than I did. Thank you, Sir.

    That’s cute, I like that it’s actually functional. I’m not sure I would rely on it to keep important keys clipped to my belt, I’d have to have it in my hand to judge how secure it is.
