The Wrangler is Ruger’s incredibly popular and ultra-affordable single action .22LR revolver that was introduced a year ago (see our review here). Now Galco has announced their new Switchback hybrid ambidextrous holster for the wheel gun.
A hybrid design that combines the best elements of leather and synthetic, the Switchback is fully ambidextrous and can be carried in the strongside or crossdraw positions. The main body of the holster is constructed of layered synthetics, beginning with an outer layer of durable black ballistic nylon. Beneath that is closed cell foam that imparts structure to the holster body and protection for the firearm in the field. Finally, a layer of 420 denier gunmetal-colored packcloth lines the holster.
An ambidextrous “exoskeleton” made of top grain steerhide allows the belt to be threaded through either side of the holster body in strongside or crossdraw positions, for right or left hand draw. The retention strap is reversible for ambidextrous use.
With four popular barrel lengths available, the Switchback is a perfect way to pack the compact Wrangler in the great outdoors or on the range. Available in black finish, the Switchback retails for only $49.
