Good IWB Purchase

by Hallen in NJ, from United States, NJ Written on February 12, 2015
This is the second Galco V-Hawk I have purchased; the first for a 5" barrel 1911 .45 about a year ago, and the second for a 4" barrel 1911 9mm. Both holsters offer excellent retention, and ease of draw and re-holstering. They are of excellent design and high quality construction, and offer excellent concealment, depending upon the level desired. If you are relying only upon an outer jacket or shirt to conceal the pistol grip exposed above the belt line, use the leather loops already installed. If you find the exposed leather loops to be too obvious, you can instead install the supplied plastic belt clips, requiring you to stuff your shirt tail between the clips and the holster, leaving only the grip exposed. If you are required to have total concealment by only a shirt tucked in around the outside of the entire gun, replace the leather loops with separately purchased, optional steel clips. On the 5" model, I ordered the steel replacement clips for trial, and found the leather loops are the most comfortable, and also superior in comfort and utility to both the steel clips, and the supplied, optional plastic belt clips. The lower front "point" of leather (just below where the front two punched holes are) will curl outward during the latter stages of break in. Until it does, it will poke those who are shorter in stature in the front of the hip when squatting down (deep knee bend). At full break in, you don't even know you are wearing it, and using the Galco V-Hawk my 5" 1911 wit...

P229 V-Hawk. This is the one!

by AndyH, from United States, GA Written on December 10, 2014
I have bought many Galco (and other makes) holsters over the years for my SIGs. I EDC a M11-A1 IWB. Up until now, I haven't been able to find the perfect holster for walking around , sitting down, and sitting in the car. Now I have. This holster stays where you put it, and is comfortable. Add to that, the usual Galco top quality workmanship & materials. This really is the last IWB I need to buy....
Pros:
  • Value for money
  • comfortable,
  • Stays put
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Every Day Carry
Would recommend: Yes

Great Value

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on August 30, 2013
Fits my Colt like a glove, but I purchased for my Sig RCS. The ejection port and take-down lever pin location is slightly different on the Sig, but a little rubbing and break-in has it functioning great....

Very comfortable IWB holster!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AL Written on April 27, 2013
It is a very comfortable IWB holster. You can conceal a large Springfield XD 45 relatively easily. As all other holsters from Galco, it is of high quality and well-made. The only complain I have is about the snaps on the belt loops, which are not "pull the dot" one-directional snaps. They must change the snaps on belt loops to "Pull-the-Dot" one-way snaps for added security and retention.
Pros: Comfort
Cons: Snaps on belt loops ......
Would recommend: Yes

not worth it

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on April 15, 2013
Purchased the Vhawk hoping it would work in place of the similarly priced versa-max II... the custom holster this one attempts to copy. Milt Sparks wait is worth it. I plan on returning this holster. The material is relatively thin, flexible, supple leather not suitable for an IWB carry. The Guard at the mouth does hold the holster open at the belt line but rest of the holster nearly collapses. The V shaped wings are flexible and almost floppy and provide little stability. The snap closures are not secure enough and often break open when drawing. With the weapon holstered the pressure of the belt and jeans is enough to increase friction and make drawing difficult. Its just a knock off that does not work.
Pros: looks okay, solid concepts
Cons: low grade materials compromises functionality...
Would recommend: No

V-Hawk for XDM 3.8

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on June 3, 2012
Not the easiest holster to use, it takes some effort to hook onto the belt and get positioned correctly. Comfortable for most daily activities i.e. sitting, bending, etc.
Pros: Good quality leather and sticking, stiff and retains shape when pistol is removed. Retention is excellent and tight. Easily concealed with loops or hooks.
Cons: Very tight handgun fit out of the box. Followed Galco's online breaking recommendations and is now a perfect fit....
Would recommend: Yes

Galco V-Hawk Holster

so far

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 30, 2012
i have had this holster for nearly a week trying to break it in and use it. i have only gotten to the point where the holster doesn't rack the slide on my gun any more. for the past few attempts at drawing this gun i have managed to fully remove it from my waist while trying to draw. the snaps are great concept but that's it. the release and all you have in you hand is a Galco holster wrapped around your Glock.
Pros: great looking, easy on off,comfortable
Cons: too snug, unable to draw, break in time...
Would recommend: No
