Preview: Bianchi Allusion Series 126GLS Assent

posted on February 28, 2021
Bianchi announced its first-ever holster to incorporate the Safariland Grip Locking System with the launch of the Allusion Series 126GLS Assent concealment holster. This unique grip-locking system enables this easily concealed holster to accommodate multiple firearms fits, and the company notes that the six sizes of holster models means that it can fit more than 250 different guns.

"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."

Featuring an open-top design, the Bianchi 126GLS Assent concealment holster is built with a leather exterior that's lined by a durable, rigid liner made from synthetic material. The Grip Locking System incorporated into the holster design automatically locks a gun into place once it's fully seated inside the holster. To release, all you have to do is place your middle finger in an intuitive position around the grip during a draw, and the gun disengages from the holster seamlessly.

The 126GLS Assent holster from Bianchi features a border-stitched design and offers a high-ride hip-carry position on a shooter's strong side. Belt slots incorporated into the holster design are positioned to draw a holstered gun in toward your body for greater concealment.

Available in black or tan leather, the Bianchi 126GLS Assent holster retails at a suggested MSRP of $78. For more information, visit
