Stopped by my LGS to pickup a Galco Avenger and......

Yep, they had one in stock for 3" 1911.



They offered to take an extra 10% off. So I would get it for $90.00. Great! I did not even open it up to take a look. Just paid and left.

When I got home, I took it out to see how well my Raptor Ultra would fit into it. This is what I found:



BONUS!!!!!!!!!!

Now, Galco told me last week that the only way to get that was to order from Kimber.

I guess someone let one slip through!

Very good fit. Hugs the body really nice too. I am sure it will only get better as it starts to wear in. I am very, very pleased with this one.

Galco makes a decent holster. The Kimber logo is a bonus and nice touch.

I have a Galco holster modeled for my HK P30 and while I don't wear it often I am very pleased with the fit and design.
