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".

Nice All the Way Around
This is my first quality shoulder rig and, now that it is fitted, I am very pleased with its comfort, concealability, design, material and workmanship. Like other Galco leather holsters I have had, breaking it in to fit the pistol took a bit of work, but it is always better to have a new cowhide holster fit a little tight than too loose and the end result was worth the effort. Thanks Galco!

Jackass rig
I currently own several GALCO holsters, and the jackass rig is by far the best shoulder holster system around, and I’m including the other GALCO shoulder holsters, they are good, but they just can’t beat the jack ass! Why do I make these claims u asked? I have carried handguns for about the last 35 years, and normally I carry two at a time, and with only one or two exceptions the GALCO holsters are tougher than they look (comparing the thin straps to a brand with straps that are so thick it becomes uncomfortable pretty fast,) and one has to choose their shirts carefully to make sure your not printing. The JA rig has thinner straps but the are strong, one of my JA rigs is going on 30 years and have not worn anything out, the holster it self has remained completely serviceable after all that time. But what I like most about it is the angle the holster/pistol rides at. I’m 6’2” 255 lbs and the holster disappears under a t-shirt as long as I don’t reach or bend in a manner to give away its position. The best accolade I can give this holster is they just don’t wear out! I’m know they’re not perfect, but they are as close as I’ve used. Btw the reason I ordered this is to replace a Miami classic “holster only” because those ride pretty much horizontal instead of the angle that the JA rig carries the pistol. Last comment, you know that box in the garage that’s full of holsters that just didn’t meet your standards, well I have also and there is NOT one GALCO holster in that box at in my garage. They are made to do the job and not have to be replaced. Simple pride in their products, excellent customer service, and unfortunately the only time I buy a new GALCO product is when I buy a new pistol!!!
