ALPHA CONCEALMENT SYSTEMS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Phoenix is Now Available 
Alpha Concealment Systems Adds Yet Another New Holster

Jan. 27, 2016 (Pittsburgh, PA) – Our customers spoke, and we listened! Today Alpha Concealment Systems is happy to announce the non-light-bearing version of our innovative new holster design, The Gryphon. The new design, dubbed The Phoenix, allows customers who do not use a light/laser to experience the same unparalleled concealability that The Gryphon offers.


Origin

In Greek mythology, the phoenix was a legendary creature with an incredibly long lifespan. At the end of its life, it would die in a show of flames and combustion, a new phoenix rising from the ashes of its predecessor. It was said to be of similar size to an eagle, with wings of fire and two razor-sharp talons. 


Description

The Phoenix is our Ultimate Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster, and is so named for its appearance: the two Appendix Clips on the front of the holster are said to resemble the talons of a phoenix. It is designed to be worn in any position – the holster clips onto your belt and is worn inside your pants. This holster is ideal for carrying concealed.

We refer to this holster as our Ultimate IWB because 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 Phoenix is molded to fit a specific handgun model; your handgun will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. This holster does not accommodate any weapon-mounted lights, such as the TLR1 or Inforce APL. If you are running a light on your gun, you’ll want to check out the light-bearing version of The Phoenix, The Gryphon.

The Phoenix 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.
