NOTE: Most fits not compatible with red dot optics.
NOTE: the muzzle on some gun fits will protrude beyond the leather. This is by design.
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 holster,
harness and extended mag carrier or horizontal mag carrier as separate components. Alternately, purchase a Miami Classic II, which comes standard with a horizontal, open-front magazine carrier.
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.

Our Miami Classic™ is quite possibly the most imitated shoulder holster system in the world. A direct descendant of the original shoulder system first introduced by Galco in 1970 (then the Famous Jackass Leather Company), the Miami Classic has since become the favorite of professionals worldwide.

A key component of this shoulder system is its spider harness. All four points of the spider harness pivot independently and are connected by our unique clover shaped Flexalon™ swivel back plate, which is a Galco trademark. This results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for all sizes and shapes.

This system is constructed of premium steerhide and includes holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of harness fasteners. The Miami Classic is fully modular. Optional accessories and components may be purchased separately, including commonly-used items like tie-downs.

The Miami Classic for autos is available in right or left hand draw in tan or black finish.

Great Quality
The Miami Classic Shoulder System (MC212) has some of the finest leather making quality I've seen. I carry mostly big 1911 frame .45's that weigh in between 36 and 42 oz. I only weigh 160 lbs., so using an OWB hip holster causes the firearm to off set my bodies center of balance. With the MC212 system the load is supported by your shoulders and upper body. The only drawback is now the firearm weight tends to offset the center of the straps. This was remedied by anchoring the magazines with the belt tiedown straps. Works great.

I can no longer use because of my age, IWB/OWB holsters' daily carrying my Colt Government, Semi-automatic, 1911, 45 ACP, 5" Barrel, Steel Frame and two clips.
Issued this style of gun in the U.S.N. Vietnam era and want no other than my 1911.
Emailed GALCO with questions about the Miami Classic and use after both of my shoulders have been replaced. With that information, I made the decision to purchase the Miami Classic system. Without a doubt, and with GALCO's input, this is the BEST I've felt with my 1911 ever. Highly recommend this system for quality, great fit, and Made in the U.S.A. Bravo Zulu GALCO!
