New Bianchi Leather Holsters for the Concealment Market


Three New Models Fill Market Niche

Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland™, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today the introduction of three new Bianchi® leather holster models for the concealed carry and law enforcement markets. These new offerings are constructed of the same rich, full-grain leather for which Bianchi is so well known and they feature sleek contour molding for a traditional friction fit.

“The Bianchi line has a rich and distinctive following, and these new models represent the result of continual and growing customer requests for new concealed carry models,” stated Scott Carnahan, Vice President Marketing, Equipment Products.

The Model 56 Serpent™ thumb snap holster for semiautomatics and small frame revolvers is a two-slot design and rides high on the hip and close to the body for excellent concealment. It features a fully molded holster front, giving a beautiful contoured appearance, in addition to being more comfortable to wear. The large rectangular thumb snap is a safety feature, helping to reduce the chance of the snap being caught in the trigger guard.

The Models 57 Remedy™ and 58 P.I.™ open top designs, also for semiautomatics and small frame revolvers, fill a niche in the Bianchi line previously not offered. Both models feature the fully molded holster front for improved comfort, and the open top design provides quick and convenient access. The Model 57 Remedy is designed for hip carry and the Model 58 P.I. is ideal for small of back or rear hip with a heavy 30 degree cant to accommodate for draw angle. Both models feature deep contour molding, making visible the distinct shape of the handguns they hold.

These new models, as with all Bianchi leather products, are handcrafted with top quality full-grain, vegetable tanned leather. All three models are available in plain finish, tan and black and feature dual 1.5” belt loops, providing a snug fit on the most popular belt widths. Available now at the following MSRPs.

MODEL                                                    MSRP              
Model 56 Serpent™                                  $ 62.00
Model 57 Remedy™                                 $ 56.00
Model 58 P.I.™                                        $ 58.00
