Product Preview: Blade-Tech Total Eclipse Holster

posted on January 11, 2017

A reasonably priced polymer holster allowing multiple carry configurations and methods, the Total Eclipse from Blade-Tech delivers nearly unmatched versatility. The design is available for a host of popular pistols (M1911 shown) from a variety of major makers. Its molded halves are mated by a hollow rivet and a simple retention adjustment screw that bears on a rubber bushing. An included assortment of polymer wings, clips and belt loops allows assembly by way of a Phillips screwdriver so that the rig can be used for right- or left-hand draw in either vertical or FBI cant orientations, and in either inside-the-waistband or outside-the-waistband modes. All of the components have molded-in holes and are marked in such a way that they can be assembled quickly and properly with the included blackened steel screws and nuts after consulting the instructions. Matching single and double magazine pouches are also available at additional cost. Price: $60. Contact: Blade-Tech Industries; (877) 331-5793;
