NOTE: Extended Magazines
1. Full size pistol: system mag carrier will not accommodate extra-capacity or extended
magazines. To assemble a system for extended magazines, please purchase extended mag carrier or horizontal mag carrier as separate components.

carrier will generally also accommodate magazines from the full-sized pistol.
3. Please contact Galco customer service for further clarification as needed.

NOTE: Sleeved Magazines
May not properly accommodate magazines with exterior sleeves, as the baseplates will
rub together.

The Original Jackass Rig™ was reintroduced for Galco International’s 30th Anniversary. Galco’s predecessor, "The Famous Jackass Leather Company," first introduced this shoulder system in 1970. It features a horizontal holster that can be adjusted to a more diagonal carry position than our Miami Classic or MCII, attaching to the harness with our swivel connectors.

The ammo carrier has a streamlined yet secure design, while the Premium Center Cut Steerhide™ harness provides unparalleled concealment opportunities, greater adjustment and comfort. All four points of the center cut steerhide harness can pivot independently and are connected by our unique clover-shaped Flexalon™ swivel back plate, which is a Galco trademark.

The Jackass Rig includes holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of harness fasteners. The Jackass Rig is fully modular. Optional accessories and components may be purchased separately, including commonly-used items like tie-downs.

Made for semiautomatic pistols, the two-tone Jackass Rig is available in right and left hand draw in black holster/ammo carrier finish and contrasting tan harness.

Harness fits chests to 56".

Jackass Rig #1
I am a retired police officer/detective, and current private detective in TX. I have been carrying firearms on/off duty and private citizen since 1972! This is my 3rd Jackass rig; the first one was from the original Jackass company. My opinion is that this latest Jackass follows the history of the same qualities of its predecessors. Galco products are excellent. I only recommend three holster companies - Galco being the first on my list.

Good holster.
I bought the jackass rig shoulder system because it fits my S&W 1911 with rail. The jackass shoulder system feels comfortable when I where it, but I changed the sued shoulder straps to the 2 inch wide Galco shoulder straps. The 2 inch shoulder straps spreads more of the weight of the gun and magazine carrier across my shoulders and to me it feels more comfortable. All and all, Galco has the best horizontal shoulder holsters.
