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 polymer 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 52".

Fits great, easy to adjust. Makes carrying my Kimber 5in 10mm a pleasure. Very concealable under even a light shirt. I have 6 Galco holsters and their quality is second to none.

Glad I Spent the Money
I CC a Glock 21 gen 4. I've tried various inexpensive holsters and I couldn't find one that struck the balance between comfort, durability, and concealment. I decided to try this shoulder system even though it seems like the vast majority of people use IWB holsters for CC. If you CC a bigger gun I highly recommend this system. It holsters the weapon at a canted angle which prevents it from printing on your shirt. The leather and fasteners on this system are fantastic and everything feels good - no chaffing or jagged pieces anywhere. It's really important that you read the instructions and assemble this system correctly. It took me a few days of use before I found my final, perfect adjustments and trimmed the excess leather. DO NOT rush that process - wear it for a few days because it's likely you will cycle through different adjustments.

This is the best system for anyone who doesn't mind wearing an over-shirt (flannel, button up, etc.) and it works perfectly under a suit jacket. The only hesitation I had about this shoulder holster was the price. It took me a couple days to feel comfortable buying it. My concern was, at this price point, even if the holster was good it wasn't worth the money. Wow was I wrong. I'd recommend this system - even at this price - to anyone in a heartbeat. If you're committed to concealed carry, I think it's better to spend the money now and set this system up correctly than it is to buy several less expensive holsters which compromise on either comfort, durability, or concealment. If you go cheap and use a CC system which isn't ideal then you're inevitably going to CC less often, and you don't want to encounter a situation where you wish your gun and didn't. As an additional note: I don't use the tie downs because I'm too tall. If you're 6'0 or taller with a proportionate torso I don't think the tie downs will work for you. It's not a huge concern because if you set the adjustments properly your weapon won't be swinging around unless you're doing crossfit or running obstacle courses.

Everything I was hoping for!
Fantastic craftsmanship and excellent quality leather. DO be patient and take your time breaking it in, it will take a few weeks. You will be rewarded with an amazing fit and comfort for an EDC. Like other reviewers, I found the holster to be very tight for my Springfield Armory 5” 1911 even after an overnight in two freezer bags stuffed into it. But it is conforming to the firearm nicely now after a few weeks, patience is the key. DO NOT cut the straps until you have been wearing this harness for at least a month.
