High quality belt holster!
Once you dial in the retention with a bit of EZ-Draw, you’ll never look back. I carry my slightly-too-big-for-concealment P226 now all the time, because the Avenger presses it close to my body, making strong-side hip concealment more manageable in the summer. An excellent addition to your carry plan!

bought it as a gift
I have other Galco holsters and I love them. I read a review in Handloader magazine and I knew my grandson would like it. He uses it to carry daily.

Avenger Holster- Sig Sauer P229 Elite
I received my Galco Avenger holster and absolutely love it. I first started with contacting Galco customer service and spoke with “Jerry”, he was was great to work with and addressed my concerns and provided recommendations regarding my holster choice for the Sig 229. I was very pleased with how the holster managed the weapon while on my hip (keeps the weapon up while sitting and close to the body) and provides quick and safe access during the draw. I have purchased a number of Galco products over the years and have always been impressed with the quality, reliability, and great looks and the Avenger is no exception. I have the brown with contrasting white stitch and it’s a very sharp looking holster. I wear the 1 3/4 SB 5 belt and the Avenger worked flawlessly with it and really complimented the look. I highly recommend this holster and the great folks a Galco to anyone who truly appreciates great products and service to match!

Best holster on Planet Earth
I am and have been a law enforcement officer my entire adult life. Sometimes the Lord has taken me to other Continents to serve. I carry a Sig 1911 and pack it in a Galco Avenger holster. Like Johnny, I have an Avenger for my 4" Kimber 1911 and make it work for my 5" Sig 1911. I have one for my Glock 17 when required to carry this pistol. As a professional gun toter, writer about guns and knives for 18 years, I can say the Avenger is perfect for those who are serious. If you are a Warrior or Sheepdog (one who protects the sheep of the world) when you go into the night to do harm to evil, you should be packing you "dirt-nap pills" dispenser in a Galco Avenger. Anything else is less.

Perfection
I literally own an Avenger holster for just about every firearm I own and carry. From my 1911’s in 3.5”,4.25” and 5”, to my striker fired GLOCKs and full size M&P’s.

Excellent Quality
I have used Galco Avenger holsters to carry my pistols daily for nearly 20 years. They are simply genius in their design and are of the highest quality in construction. They have never failed me. I'm a guy who usually likes to try the newest technology or gadget by nature. I have many holsters of various makes and designs. I like to try them out as I want to know by experience what I am recommending to others. Regardless of the cool new thing to hit the market, I am most comfortable with and trust the Avenger holster. It never fails me.

Avenger belt holster
Great fit. Little tight at first, but after following the break-in process, no issues. Raw leather internals, unlined.

Avenger belt holster
From time to time I will experiment with different holster manufacturers, but I always end up coming back to Galco. The quality of their holsters and the precision fit are the best that I have been able to find. The Avenger is a very comfortable holster that keeps the grip close to the body and covers the trigger. I am quite happy with it.

Avenger holster
Excellent quality. A little to snug. Had to really work the gun to get it to wear it in. Some E-Z Draw really helped. Now it's my favorite holster.

Tight at first but very nice quality holster
Very tight when arrives but i was expecting it and followed the recommandations for the break in , after a while it fits great, i guess it has to be like this to get it right for years of service. Very nice leather and quality holster.

Avenger belt holster
Have several Galco holsters and am very pleased with all. Bought this last one for my Ruger SR 1911 light weight Commander. Have 4 Commander style 1911's. The fit was tight to start, but I talked with customer service and the plastic bag procedure worked perfectly. Been wearing it both strong side and cross draw. Cross draw is perfect for in the car. May get another for my Model 60 3 inch Smith which I carry in the summer.

Fits the weapon perfectly! I prefer leather over any other holster material. This is an amazing product. I will definitely purchase other Galco products in the future. I was hesitant to buy a holster online, but Galco has my vote.

Great Holster
I recently purchased the 1911 Avenger Holster after weeks of searching for a new Belt Holster. I finally settled on the Avenger after more research and asking others what type of holsters they liked and why, ultimately ending with this one. I must say I am quite pleased with this holster and I know that I made the right choice selecting this one. Will definitely buy more products from Galco.

Avenger holster: Very nice holster
I had to give up on appendix carry due to health reason and spent quite a bit of time searching for a leather OWB holster for my Springfield Armory EMP4. After seeing the Avenger holster on their website I started researching it by watching YouTube videos and reading forums. As with any review on the internet, I take them with a grain of salt. I liked the way the holster looked and the comments people were making about the quality of the leather. I also like the way it is almost a neural cant (just a very slight forward cant) and that is the way I am most comfortable drawing from. I could not find a listing for the EMP4 on the drop down menu, but there was a 1911 4" selection. I emailed customer service and received a very quick response that told me the 1911 4" Avenger holster should work. So I ordered it. When it arrived all of the comments about the quality of the leather holster did not do it justice. Outstanding workmanship and the holster fit perfect! It was very tight, as expected, and has loosened up to where the retention when I am wearing it is perfect for me. The more I wear it, the more comfortable it gets. Would I recommend it? You bet I would and if you are looking for a leather holster that should last a very long time, the Galco Avenger holster should be what you need. Great job Galco!

Avenger Holster
I just got this holster for my Sig Sauer 1911 Professional Carry (identical size​ as Colt Commander). It fits perfectly. The quality of workmanship is excellent, as I have come to expect from Galco. I use it daily and the more I wear it the better it feels. I would recommend it to a friend for sure.

holster arrived 1 week sooner than advised. beautiful!!! perfect fit on my high power, looks like it will last forever.
read the instructions, backed the retaining screw all the way out then slowly tightened it back up. there is no security strap or device so it is SUPPOSED to be tight.
the avenger fits 1911's and brownings which are narrower through the slide, so the retaining screw is a good idea.

Lets Snuggle
Ordered an Avenger for my Custom Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary 1911 & love it. The Quality and fit of this holster is unmatched, only 2 weeks after order to arrive. Customer service outstanding. The Avenger Holster not only fits the firearm nicely but rides very comfortably without any bite forward or rear, allows cocked and locked while providing plenty cover of the trigger. Rides high enough and is also very comfortable for a large person. Well built, looks good without adding bulk and allows for very minimal printing. Worth the extra, adds a look of class without drawing extra attention to the user.

I have used the GALCO Avenger Style Holster for a long time. I like the way it rides close to your body for concealment. I use this holster each and every day to work and if necessary off duty. I have this type of holster for my Wilson CQB 1911, Kimber 1911, Sig Sauer P220, and Glock 17.

Perfect...
Ordered an Avenger for my 1911. Fit is perfect as always. Craftsmanship is superb...as expected from Galco.

I have a normal 1911...no rails or straps or wazoos...if you have those abnormalities on your gun then you will need a different holster.

Fit is supposed to be tight at first. Good holsters wear in over time and thousands of draws...

I wear this Galco every day all day. It is comfortable and very well made...again...as expected.

Avenger Holster
I have the Galco Avenger holster for a 3 inch Kimber. The holster is just like all Galco holsters it is of high quality. I have been carrying mine for over 7 years now its comfortable easy to conceal and stays in place. The above review said its not practical and is to tight. As with any leather product you have to break it in. It also has a tension screw so you can adjust the tension to your preferences. After you break it in you will be happy with it and the break in is not complicated. It will become like a glove to your firearm. Thanks Galco for another great holster.

Mr Gary Blankenship
I bought a should carry rig for 45 cal 1911, from local vendor miami vice style . i love the quality but i have 3 1911 and none fit the holster . kimber tactical 2 long slide, colt gold cup, sig sauer 1911. All way to tight to use for self defense, love the qualty price but its not functional.

[This is very likely a break-in issue. Please refer to the break-in instructions in the Product Information Guide supplied with each holster, or in the FAQ section of our website. - Galco]
