Shoulder rig that will accept interchangeable holsters?

Hi all,
I have a question about shoulder rigs that may seem silly or rediculous. I own several pistols and was wondering if there was a particular shoulder rig out there that would offer the ability to interchange holsters for use with different pistols. I would really like to have a rig that would work with both my Ruger Mark II and my Super Blackhawk .44 and so on...
I would also like this fantasy rig and multiple holsters to be of high quality that might last.
Am I barking up the wrong tree here?

I believe the Alessi harness can be used with multiple holsters.

I have a Galco Miami Classic II, and you can buy different holsters for different guns while using the same harness straps, tie-downs (if equipped) and possibly the same magazine holder.

The downside is that you have to re-do the strap adjustment each time you switch out holsters. I think that after doing that a few times, I'd just buy a separate complete rig for each gun. Or, you might be able to mark the straps with a Sharpie to make the conversion easier.

thanks for the information. I will look into these two and see what works.

I'd check out the well made Dirty Harry holsters from or .

The UM84/92 Bianchi holsters are not really concealment rigs but make great outdoors/field/range/duty rigs.

I dont know how you feel about kydex or glass impregnated poly holsters, but Blackhawk has their Serpa line which has a shoulder rig, thigh rig, paddle, and belt slide options available. The holster portion just screws onto which ever platform you choose, and is available in many of the more common full sized firearms; XD, P99, P92/M9, Glock, etc etc........

Might be worth checking out?

You can try the Uncle Mike's sidekick holster system.
They are all nylon, and some don't like anything but leather.
The advantage is they make numerous holster sizes that will fit everything from a snub nosed Colt .38 up to a full sized N frame with a 6" barrel that all mount into their basic shoulder sling.
When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, Call the undertaker!
My firearm is an investment on my life.

Doesn't Galco make a "X" system that interchanges holsters?
