Galco Miami Classic II Shoulder System

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on March 11, 2013
I bought this system for my Colt Delta Elite and it fits great. Expect the leather to need to stretch a bit for a good fit, especially the thumb break strap. Very comfortable for all day carry. Pricey, but worth it.
Pros: comfortable/good fit, quality components
Cons: pricey...
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent holster!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MN Written on November 25, 2012
Just what I was looking for. Great way to carry a 1911. Conceals well under jacket, vest or sport coat. Don't have to worry about my vests being too short as with a belt holster. More comfortable than a IWB holster. Carried a Delta Elite 10mm all day deer hunting.
Pros: Easy on. Comfortable carry. Great concealablity.
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Almost a Perfect Holster for my 1911

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AL Written on August 13, 2012
I tried several inside-waistband holsters for my COMPENSATED 1911 were all just plain uncomfortable (I hate even having things in my pockets.) I needed a concealable holster that I could open carry if I felt lazy. That said, the Galco Miami II is a high-quality piece of leather craftmanship that allows CCW or open carry very easily.

All that said, I weigh 180 lbs and I tend to wear button down shirts (Propper brand, namely). The only problem with this holster is that the angle of the barrel allows it to poke (imprint) the back of any shirt I am wearing unless it is untucked (or a jacket, which hides it perfectly). I adjusted it just about every way I could and minimized this problem, but it is still unavoidable it seems.


The seams appear to be very strong. There are threaded rivets paired with bolts that allow you to tighten the grip on your gun and mags well beyond practicality. If tightened, your mags will never fall out (and you can tighten them much, much more than that.)

You have to break in the leather for a week or so before you trim off the excess harness length on all four straps. If you don't cut them off, you will have four foot-long straps dangling at the two holster connectors and the two mag connectors.

Also, you have to keep your gun's slide racked and the hammer open for the strap to hold it in the holster, which means there is a chance you could discharge your firearm when you draw. This may be an issue to some people, but if you are a meticulo...

Galco Miami Classic II Shoulder System - Right Hand-Tan MCII212

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CO Written on January 13, 2012
This is my second Galco shoulder holster purchase. The first fit my S&W 9mm perfectly; this one doesn't fit my 1911 at all which is very frustrating. I have to push the weapon in as far as I can and the holster will still not allow the retention strap to reach far enough to snap closed. This of course is extremely important, especially if you use a "horizontal carry". I'm still considering sending it back, but may try some DRAW-EZ oil. I can't recommend this holster in good conscience since I'm not certain that it will fit your 1911.
Pros: Quality leather; Ease of assembly, Numerous optional configurations
Cons: Doesn't fit my S&W 1911!...
Would recommend: No

great shoulder holster

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on March 8, 2011
The Galco Miami Classic II is a great holster. Fit and finish on the holster, magazine holder, and harness are top notch. It takes a bit of tweaking and adjusting to get the holster configured. Once adjusted correctly for your body it is extremely comfortable. ...

Great Shoulder Holster System

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 20, 2010
This system is not only the leader in the field but it is one of the best if not the best there is. With the modular design, it is as good as a custom built system without the custom built price. It is easy to set up, comfortable to wear, light weight, sturdy, easy to use, affordable, well built, and functions flawlessly.
Pros: Easy set up, comfortable, light weight, sturdy, easy use, affordable, and functions flawlessly....
