Galco Holster Question Login/Join

I ordered a #248 which is suppose to fit the 228. I have the holster and it says 248 on it. I am having a problem trying to get my 228 to fit. Try as I might, I can't get the 228 to enter. I hate to grease things up.

GALCO uses the numeral 248 in a number of their holsters styles: paddle, Askins owb, iwb, kydex and shoulder holster. They typically use letters before the numerals to designate the style: TR, S3H, PLE, SCT, etc.

Who did you purchase it from?
What specific GALCO product did you order?
What does your shipping order state?

Assuming your holster does not have a tension screw, I would contact the vendor you ordered from before doing anything more.

GALCO INTERNATIONAL is located in Phoenix. If you have no luck with your vendor, maybe contact GALCO directly and send them some images of your holster and the P228 fitment requirements.

I ordered directly from Galco. On the package it came in, it states what Sig models it will fit and 228/229 are there.

Call GALCO on Monday to get it figured out. It could have been packaged incorrectly. They've had their holsters being made offshore for several years now. Don't apply anything to the holster w/o consulting them.

Does the boning appear to be for a P228?

THIS IS MY FAULT. I didn't read the instructions. Things will be fine.

Care to elaborate? We all make mistakes.
