  • Vertical double magazine carrier with secure flaps for autos
  • Easily concealable 1" wide harness straps
  • Full grain leather with swiveling Flexalon back plate

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.

Made for semiautomatic pistols, the Miami Classic is available in right or left hand draw in tan or black finish.

Fits like a glove
I purchased the Miami Classic system for use with a Glock 19 Gen 3. I appreciate how the holster system is balanced and “floats” perfectly on my torso. I don’t experience any pressure points and the holster keeps the weapon and mags exactly in place. I can use this set-up all day and have zero shoulder or back pain. I actually forget I have it on after a while. The retention for the weapon and mags is very customizable. I have the retention screws adjusted for a very smooth/fast draw for both the firearm and mags. The MC leather is supple and finely finished with a rich saddle color which is appealing to the eye. The leather also has a pleasant “leather” aroma after over a year of use.

I had to make two rounds of adjustments to get the fit just right for my build. I purchased, separately, the mag pouch from the MCII system. I preferred this horizontal, open mag pouch over the closed vertical pouch included in the MC system.

I chose the MC holster system because I found belt holsters to be generally uncomfortable and difficult to conceal for my intended use.

A Percected Holster
I got this Shoulder Holster System on Christmas, this product better distributes the weight over my body than any other Holster I have had. Those pesky Belt Holsters always tear down on my side. I plan to always take this hiking along with my rifle.

I own two of GALCO’s shoulder systems, for two different handguns, most recently their Miami Classic.

They are wonderfully designed, professionally finished, absolutely comfortable to wear.

A word — or two — of advice: Read and follow the enclosed, detailed, illustrated, printed directions. Be patient with getting the fit right. It might be a perfect fit the first try — but then, it might take some extended experimentation over several days.

I carry a 3” S&W 629. The fit is so close, the weight distribution is so balanced, that I don’t feel that i’m carrying.

Again, be patient with the try-fit process. The end result is well worth the effort.

The folks in Customer Service know their products.
