Recover Tactical – HC11 Tactical Holster For 1911

Recover Tactical, the company behind the BC2 Grip and Rail System for Beretta 92/96 pistols, has just released a new holster designed specifically to accommodate any standard size 1911 pistol which features their CC3H Grip and Rail System. The full release is as follows:


Recover Tactical is proud to announce the release of the new Recover HC11 Tactical Holster for 1911.

The new holster is designed to fit any standard size 1911 pistol that uses Recover’s CC3H grip and rail system. The HC11 holster allows for a natural draw, comes with either a Passive or Active retention, and is compatible with most pistol rail mounted accessories (lights and lasers) on the market.

Patented Frame Locking System:

Recover’s patent pending Frame Locking System provides the option of either active or passive retention. Active retention requires the pressing of the button on the side of the holster to “unlock” and release the gun from the holster. Passive retention holds the gun in place so it will not dislodge during regular use, and will allow you to draw the firearm simply by pulling with a little extra force.

Universal Accessory Fit:

Just like Recover’s popular grip and rail systems for 1911 and Beretta, the new 1911 holster was design by world renowned Israeli weapons designer Tamir Porat (Porat also designed the IWI Tavor assault rifle).

The HC11 Holster is manufactured in Israel from the same high-grade, glass-reinforced polymer used by many polymer gun manufacturers. The holster comes with a paddle mount or can be attached to aftermarket fittings such as standard size belt loops or leg rigs.


Grip Exchange Program:

Due to design enhancements such as the Frame Locking System, the Recover HC11 holster is designed to work with Recover’s updated CC3H grip and rail system. It will not fit with Recover’s original CC3 model of grips. Therefore Recover is offering a free exchange program which allows all previous owners of the original CC3 grips to trade them in for a new set of the CC3H grips when they order the holster from www.RecoverTactical.com or any of our other retailers.

The Recover holster for the 1911 is currently available in black with more colors to be released in the coming months, and comes with a limited 3 year warranty. Retailing for only $59.99, the HC11 is one of the most beautiful and functional holsters on the market.

According to Ron Rosenberg, President of Recover Tactical, “Of all the 1911 owners that I speak with, one of their biggest requests is for a sturdy holster that enables them to switch lights or lasers on their gun without needing to have multiple holsters. With the HC11 holster’s universal accessory fit, we think we are going to make a lot of 1911 owners very happy by offering a true 24 hour holster.”

In fact, nearly all of Recover’s first holster customers have been very happy with the design and function of the new holster. Initial reviews, as well as many photos, from actual customers on Recover’s Instagram page and on popular gun forums have also proven that the HC11 holster lives up to its hype.

      Seeing as Crye’s only made the GunClip for Glocks, I can’t help but feel that other versions of this would be a good idea for any company. Models that fit factory 226s, 1911s, M&Ps etc with an open lower area to allow for mounting of any type of accessory without having to spend another $60-120+ on one more custom kydex holster that fits one’s personal needs as far as gun/electronic accessory/mounting method are concerned (to name the basics).

      Trigger finger to release the retention system? As in a SERPA holster?

      • Serpa relies on the lock over the trigger guard, our HC11 holster locks on the front of the frame so when you push the release your finger ends up right where it needs to be. Of course if you prefer the version without the lock you could go with passive retention and that holds the gun in place until you deliberately draw.

      Are there any plans to release this platform for other weapon systems in the future?

      Is your paddle adjustable like the Serpa CQC’s Paddle holster? Also, does it have the belt catches on the outside like the Serpa Paddle?
