The Cytac Hardshell Holster series is an extremely affordable and strong product that is designed to be competitive with other molded hard case holsters, while being easier on your wallet. The polymer design is both lightweight and strong, with a comfortable belt paddle also included that has a silicone backing for user comfort. The holster uses a locking quick release button to hold the gun firmly inside and protect the firearm's trigger. This protects the user, and the sidearm as well. There are also thigh rig and belt clip holsters that can be purchased separately to increase functionality based on the user's demands. These holsters are molded to specific handgun styles and are a firm and safe fit. This particular holster is designed to hold the 1911 series of handguns.
