This innovative Fobus tactical holster was created in answer to many requests to provide a carry system that would accommodate a handgun utilizing accessories that were either rail or trigger guard mounted. The GLT answers this request, and more! In addition to allowing the carry of handguns that have accessories such as lights or lasers mounted under the barrel or on the trigger guard. Fobus has addressed safety and retention concerns that are unique to this model holster. The handgun is held securely in place by utilization of a muzzle stud and a safety strap that encircles the trigger guard. While assuring positive retention, rapid presentation of the handgun is made easy due to the open withdrawal slot on the rear of the holster and the design of the safety strap.
What owners of this product are saying
How I ended up choosing the Fobus: I recently had an aftermarket add-on rail tapped and drilled onto my 1911 and also added a Streamlight TLR-4. This meant no more nice, smooth Blackhawk Serpa to retain my firearm and few holsters choices available for a now custom gun. This also meant no more Harries Method Light/firearm drill for night clearing--comme ci, comme ša.... First I went looking for a Kydex holster that would fit it with the light attached--not happening. Next I looked at custom rigs--send us your gun and we'll make you a custom holster for $250~$300....ow! Then I found a guy locally who does holsters, saddles etc who could do me up one in leather for $200--less painful but way nicer really than a knock around duty gun deserves. Even thought about making one from Kydex myself--but that's not cost effective for a just a few holsters. I have used Fobus products in the past (with a Glock 21SF) and found their stuff (holsters, mag pouches) to be simple, durable and long lasting--this one should prove no different but because of the design of the holster and how it must be used, there will be a learning curve. This holster snugly holds my 1911 (RIA 1911A1 with add-on rail and Streamlight TLR-4) using a stud that the muzzle rests in. The pistol's trigger guard locks in and the thumb break wraps around the trigger guard. My draw/presentation is going to take some getting used to--but it's just a variation on the 5-step presentation really. I recommend using a thicker web style tactical belt (Wilderness makes a nice one)or suitable leather belt because the thinner military rigger type belts make the rig feel loose when the holstered gun is on my hip--having a thicker belt on negates this and leaves the gun firmly where I place it.Read more ›
