Some of the specs and a word from Galco regarding these new optic-compatible 1911 holsters can be read below:

  • Raised sweat guard to protect pistol and wearer
  • Includes two different belt clips

April 2024 – Galco Gunleather – Now available for 5″ 1911’s with or without red dot sights, Galco’s Triton™ 3.0 IWB is constructed of durable, virtually maitenance-free kydex. It’s fast on the draw, slender in profile, and easy to conceal!

A raised sweat guard protects the wearer’s body from the handgun, and the handgun from perspiration. The holster is cut low to accommodate most carry-style red dot sights. Included with the Triton is an optional, height-adjustable claw-type stabilizer for those gun carriers who prefer it.

The belt clips are adjustable for cant and suitable for strongside and crossdraw. The Triton 3.0’s improved appendix carry position offers the option of the 2.0’s previous ride height plus a lowered neutral cant position for gun carriers who prefer an even deeper ride.

The Triton 3.0 is supplied with two types of interchangeable tuckable clips. The first is the UniClip™, designed to go over the belt, but which also works well without a belt. The second is the Ultimate Stealth™ clip with hook, which fits on the trouser waistband, under or behind a belt with just the hook showing, for the ultimate in stealthy concealment!

The Galco Triton 3.0 Kydex Strongside/Crossdraw IWB (Inside-the-Waistband) 5″ 1911 holster (SKU: TR3-212RB) could be something that is deployed for everyday carry (EDC) if you like to tote a big iron like the 1911, or even used for IDPA and similar handgun competitions. As always, let us know all of your thoughts about Galco and the Galco Triton 3.0 Kydex Strongside/Crossdraw IWB (Inside-the-Waistband) in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.

    That price is kinda salty for a block of kydex with a couple belt hooks, no?

    Glock is the Boomer gun not the 1911.

      @Sid Collins I know you are being funny but to clarify my point the Glock boom started in the 80s when the Boomers were taking over. Who do you think were makinh the decisions at LEAs to go with Glock?
