Concealment For Sig 226R

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, GA Written on July 6, 2010
I just recieved my Skyop248 holster. I was very pleasd when it came. It is exactly how it is described and the technical service deptartment was very honest with me when I bought it. I have a Sig Sauer 226r and it is very difficult to conceal. Especially with a Dress Shirt. I have been useing the Galco Royal Guard which is great when you use a sweat shirt or a shirt that covers the grip of your. I have spent alot of research in purchaseing this product and it was worth it. Optics Planet is a pleasure to buy from!
Pros: Material, Design, Quality
Cons: The Belt that is used with holster has to be the exact width with no indentations in the leather. In other words a tatally flat belt 1 1/4" width....
Would recommend: Yes

Good concealment rig for me

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on December 12, 2009
The goal is maximum concealment for a professional gun handler. It is not for a casual gun carrier.
This holster is well made - typical of Galco.
This holster system is totally set up for concealment which goal is accomplished well. The ad states up front that it is not a speed rig -- that drawing and reholstering are a pain. These are true, so practice is a must.

When correctly placed, the holster permits the shirt to be tucked in a manner that does obscure the gun for most body types. We have tried it on several of our guys. Most found it useful, but some had comfort issues.

Sizing the Y clip with a closely fitting belt is a must. (I custom cut and finish my own belts for a perfect fit, but my off-the-rack belts worked pretty well also.)

Order a couple of extra Y clips -- measure your belts for the correct match up. THIS IS CRITICAL.

The holster took just a moment to set up as it is ambidextrous. It is a simple one screw and one tab with 2 holes. It would be hard to mess up.

I like it for situations where maximum concealment is necessary.
Pros: Concealment goal is met, Typical Galco quality,
Cons: Takes practice to draw compared to Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 and is much harder to reholster. Some body types are not compatable with inside the pants carry method. ...
