After decades of production, the Royal Guard has been improved based on Galco’s experience and market feedback over many years.

Constructed of premium horsehide, the Royal Guard™ 2.0 has the rough side of the leather out for greater stability in the pants, while the smooth side of the leather lies against the handgun for a slicker draw feel. The butt-forward cant increases concealability when worn behind the strong hip, while the addition of a raised sweat guard protects both the handgun and the gun carrier. The new black-colored metal-reinforced mouth allows easy one-handed return to the holster. The Royal Guard 2.0 is supplied with removable black belt loops fitting belts up to 1 3/4”, with optional tan and black 1 1/4”, 1 1/2", and 1 3/4" belt loops available. All these features combine to make a truly professional-grade IWB holster.

The improved Royal Guard 2.0 is offered for right hand draw, in two-tone color scheme using a natural holster body with a black collar and belt loops.

Comfortable and Secure
I have three now, one each for my G17, G19, and G30. (I carry the G17 90% of the time, and I always carry) The oldest one is now about 14 months and still looks brand new. (But I expected that. My first Royal Guard was for the Gen 2 G17, and I used it for 12 years before a loaded gun would finally begin to slip out of the holster when inverted!) The Royal Guard series is the most comfortable inside the waistband holster I have ever used in 30 years, no contest. It remains comfortable carrying a G17 while seated in my truck! The RG holster retains a loaded weapon held upside down with no slippage whatsoever, and drawing and holstering the weapon is smooth as silk. I do not know how they get a mold to hold so well and work so smoothly. The re-enforced top of the holster retains its shape even when wearing very snug pants, and that is vital for safe reholstering as knowledgeable concealed carriers should know. With a proper gun belt, it is easy to remove and replace the entire holster from your waist due to the excellent belt loops and snaps and the exterior treatment of the leather. There's no other way to say it, it's the best, most comfortable and secure inside the waistband holster made.

I bought this holster for a stainless 1911 commander. It is more comfortable than my other holsters that cost more money, and I can easily carry all day more comfortably than my G26 in a kydex holster.
