First Look: New Galco Holsters for the Springfield Armory Hellcat RDP

posted on June 2, 2021

Galco is adding to their already extensive line of inside-the-waistband (IWB) holsters by introducing new versions for the Springfield Armory Hellcat RDP.

The KingTuk Cloud is Galco’s newest IWB holster and is designed to combine extremely comfortable carry with superior concealment. The comfort comes from an innovative backing plate that is composed of a ballistic nylon front over a closed cell foam body. The back portion of the plate rides against the wearer and is lined with Galco’s Comfort Cloth, an adaptive performance mesh that provides padding and moisture wicking.

There are other holsters in the KingTuk series the are also available for the Hellcat RDP. The KingTuk Air, Classic and Deluxe all provide extremely comfortable carry, fast draw and easy return to holster, and are all available for the Hellcat RDP. The steerhide backing plates of these holsters ride comfortably on the body and quickly conform to the wearer’s hip.

The rigid Kydex holster pocket on each one allows for a fast draw and easy holstering, while still facilitating a full firing grip. All KingTuk designs include Galco’s patent-pending polymer UniClip design for excellent concealment and stability. The clips can be moved up or down in the corresponding holes in the backing plate, which enable the user to set the carry height and angle to suit their unique preferences.

The QuickTuk Cloud is constructed similarly to the KingTuk Cloud and has an equally comfortable backing plate but with a single forward-mounted UniClip for easy and convenient attachment and removal to your belt. The neutral cant of the QuickTuk enables it to be worn either behind the strongside hip or in the appendix position.

In addition to this, Galco also makes a variety of ammunition carriers, belly bands and other products for the discrete carry of the Springfield Armory Hellcat RDP, as well gun belts to keep everything secure and other holsters suited for off-body carry.
