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.
2. Compact/subcompact pistol: if a full size version of your pistol is available, the mag
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 for my Ruger LW Commander 1911
After decades of carrying 1911's I got tired of fighting with belt rigs and clothes & seat belts, etc., I bought this rig for my current SR1911 LW Commander 45acp with accompanying double mags. This is the only way to go for a big rig w/ extra mags for EDC w/ good firepower. The weight balances well and I can wear it all day in comfort well concealed. Easy to set up, adjust, and zero fit issues for the pistol. I'm 6'1" & 250lbs and I would tell anyone to get this rig for EDC use especially w/ full size pistols.
