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, and optional accessories may be purchased separately.

Made for semiautomatic pistols, the Jackass Rig is available in right and left hand draw in black finish.

Harness fits chests to 56".

A new version of a tried and true design!
I bought the lightweight version of this rig for a "J" frame Smith back in 1976, and let it go, when I sold the gun to a good friend. (he still uses it) When I bought this one I knew I was getting the best available! ('cause guys believe me, over the years I've tried pretty much everything out there) This is without doubt the most comfortable rig I have ever tried, and I'm currently carrying a custom 1911 (not the lightest choice I could have made) but a weapon I feel most confident with.

Excellent product!!!!
First and foremost, the people at Galco take care of their customers. I purchased the Jack Ass Rig during their last sale. I forgot to enter the promo code to get 20% off. One e-mail to customer service and I had my 20% refunded to my card the same day!
The Jack Ass Rig is an excellent shoulder holster! I carry a full-size 1911 and it makes lite work of the job. The material and craftsmanship are second to none. A real quality pice of gear.
