First Look: Galco Summer Comfort IWB Holster for Glock 48

posted on December 31, 2020

The Glock 48 is a continuation of Glock’s legacy of building compact polymer 9 mm pistols. The simple, rugged, and easy-to-shoot design of the gun has made it a popular choice as an everyday defensive pistol. The single-stack Glock 48 is approximately the same size as a double-stack Glock 19, except it has a single-stack magazine that makes it significantly thinner. That thinness may not seem like much, but thinner guns are easier to carry. Now Galco’s Summer Comfort inside the waistband holster is now available for the Glock 48.

With it’s lightweight and comfortable design, the Summer Comfort matches nicely with the lightweight and easy-to-carry Glock 48. The holster features a snap-on design that allows it to attach and detach from the belt without removing the belt from your waist. The reinforced premium steerhide construction retains its shape of the holster when the handgun is removed, which allows for a smooth and easy return to the holster.

The smooth-out leather construction rides comfortably against the body and features full firing grip clearance for a quick and sure draw, while the covered trigger ensures your gun remains safe as you carry it around during the day. The Summer Comfort gives you a simple yet robust holster for your Glock 48, but it is not compatible with newer models of the 48 with use a red dot optic.
