Bianchi, a brand of the Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today the launch of the Bianchi 126GLS Assent concealment holster. This is the first Bianchi leather holster to incorporate Safariland’s advanced GLS (Grip Locking System) retention, offering multi-fit capability. The 126GLS comes in six sizes to fit over 250 firearms. 

“This holster is truly a differentiated product,” said James Dawson, category director for Safariland’s Duty Gear business unit. “With its beautiful leather design, superior retention, and custom fit for such a large range of guns, this holster is very unique, especially in the leather market.”

The Model 126GLS Assent holster is an open-top design that combines leather with a laminate synthetic liner for extra durability, comfort, and added functionality. The GLS retention automatically secures the gun when it is holstered and releases the pistol with the middle finger of the hand when using standard shooting grip, creating an intuitive and safe release of your pistol from holster.

The low-profile 126GLS Assent holster offers a high-ride hip carry with belt slots that pull the holster and pistol grip close to the body. Dual belt slots fit up to 1.5-inch belts for a snug fit.  

126GLS Assent Features

  • GLS retention secures the firearm and releases easily and naturally with a proper shooting grip using the middle finger as you draw
  • Premium full grain leather exterior with laminate synthetic liner
  • Optics capable
  • Low-profile, contoured body-hugging design
  • Dual belt slots fit up to 1.5-inch belts for snug fit
