FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Introducing: The Gyphon
Alpha Concealment Systems Unveils New Holster Design

Dec. 30, 2016 (Pittsburgh, PA) – Today Alpha Concealment Systems is proud to announce an innovative new holster design that will revolutionize concealed carry with a light/laser. Called The Gryphon, it boasts a number of desirable features all design to offer unparalleled concealability. 


Origin

In Greek mythology, the gryphon was a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of beasts, and the eagle the king of birds, the gryphon was thought to be the king of all creatures. It was also known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions.


Description
The Gryphon is our Ultimate Light-Bearing Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster, and is so named for several reasons: the two Appendix Clips on the front of the holster are said to resemble the talons of a gryphon, and the concealment claw helps hide the fact that you’re carrying, protecting the most priceless possession of all: your life. It is designed to be worn in any position – the holster hooks onto your belt and is worn inside your pants. This holster is ideal for carrying concealed with a weapon-mounted light.

We refer to this holster as our Ultimate Light-Bearing IWB because it truly doesn't get better than this: it comes standard with a number of features that offer incomparable concealability: its slim design prevents excess bulk, its smooth rounded edges offer maximum comfort, the detachable claw on the left side of the holster aids in concealment, and the two Appendix Clips (as opposed to a singular clip) offer maximum stability. 

The Gryphon is molded to fit a specific handgun model with a particular rail-mounted light, such as a TLR-1 or Inforce APL; your handgun and light will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. Furthermore, if you do not have a weapon-mounted light on your handgun, this is NOT the holster for you - Please view our Phoenix Ultimate IWB instead. The Gryphon will not function properly without a weapon-mounted light attached. 

The Gryphon comes with two of our Appendix Clips, which hook onto your belt. The clips are available in two different sizes: 1.5", which most belts will fit through, or 1.75". The clips also come with multiple predrilled holes, which allows for adjustable ride height. You choose which size Appendix Clips you prefer during checkout.  If you're not sure which size you need, you can always head over to our Extra Hardware section to purchase larger Appendix Clips.

The concealment claw on the left side (right side if you're a left-handed shooter) of the holster rests against the back side of your belt, forcing the grip of the gun further into the body than normal. This is something that most customers need to get used to, as it can be uncomfortable at first. Therefore, the concealment claw is detachable, in case you decide it’s something you’d rather do without.

This holster is made from one piece of Kydex®, strategically molded around the gun and rail-mounted light, and fastened together with quality hardware.
