Level 3 Holsters to be Furnished with Glock 17 Gen5 Pistols


VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – January 14, 2020 – Blackhawk, a leader in the law enforcement and military equipment realm for over 20 years, announced today that it will participate in a contract for the French Armament General Directorate to equip newly furnished Glock G17 Gen5 pistols with new T-Series L3D holsters. The French Army recently selected the G17 Gen5 and multiple accessories to be used as their standard handgun and the new equipment, including the Blackhawk T-Series holster, will be distributed to the French troops within the first months of 2020.

As part of the contract, over 75,000 pistols, holsters and related accessories will be provided to the French Army over the next three years. The tender, launched in early March 2019, was open to multiple possible candidates who were asked to submit their entries for review. As part of the try-outs conducted by the French DGA, all equipment was subjected to a series of stringent tests to asses both the reliability and user-friendliness of the offered pistols and their accessories.

“The recent selection by the French Army to pair newly acquired Glock G17 Gen5 pistols with our T-Series L3D holsters is a tremendous validation of the innovation and durability featured in our new duty-rated holsters,” said Josh Waldron, President of Blackhawk. “We are extremely proud and honored to have been chosen by Glock to serve as the holster supplier for this tender. The French Army will be receiving our newest holster system that has been specifically engineered for compatibility with multiple platforms, making it one of the most versatile options available for military and police agencies.”

Developed with a low-friction, dual-density internal material, the T-Series holsters allows for a smooth and effortless draw, while its external design features a proprietary glass reinforced nylon and soft touch polymer lines for the upmost durability. Adding to its versatility, the T-Series L3D holster is standard with three different mounting options. User can select either the S.T.R.I.K.E®/MOLLE Platform, T-Series Duty Belt Loop or Blackhawk drop leg platforms, all featuring the patented Blackhawk Quick Disconnect System. This unique and one-of-a-kind system allows the holster to be quickly and conveniently moved from one platform to another with no tools required.

Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm. This efficient movement pairs with a sound-dampening, low-friction, dual-density internal material that translates into a smooth, quiet draw.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – SSD x FS Limited Edition Walt Torso Holster

Friday, November 8th, 2019

We are excited to announce a Soldier Systems and FirstSpear collaboration on a Limited edition SSD Walt Torso holster in manatee grey, now available in the non-stocking non-standard section in the FirstSpear web store.

The Walt was one of FirstSpear’s first products and has remained a favorite. Based on the old M7 leather shoulder holster for the 1911, Tye Walt is made from modern materials to resist rot. Additionally, it’s very forgiving for those pistols which are difficult to find a holster for. I’ve used it with G17s, G19s and 1911s as well as a Hi-Standard Changematic and an FN 509 (although it felt a little loose with the former and a little tight with the latter).

Exceptional cross draw style body holster designed to fit 1911, Glock, M9, 226, and similar sized pistols. Hypalon exterior with subdued SSD laser etched logo. Available while supplies last. Made in the USA with USA Materials.

This is a one-time good deal. once they are gone, they are gone.

For every holster sold $25 will be donated to SOWF, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

Blackhawk Issues Recall For T-Series LC2 Holster When Used With Modular Handgun System

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

In typical media fashion, word went out from the Consumer Products Safety Commission that Blackhawk had issued a recall for the new T-series holster. Crazy stuff was said, making consumers concerned it would make the a pistol on its own. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The issue is simple, but the explanation somewhat complicated.

If you’re using a Modular Handgun System pistol (M-17/18 variant of the SIG SAUER P320), don’t carry it in a T-Series L2C holster.

This affects a very small number of people.

First off, there aren’t that many M17/18 in private hands. These aren’t carry guns; it’s mostly collectors. Because of this, collectors want the holster that is issued with the MHS, which is from Safariland.

Second, unlike the commercial P320, MHS has an external safety. The first run of the LC2 holster has a model for the P320. Holster literature templated that to extend to the M17/M18. Due to a tight cavity, intended for the commercial P320, the first run holsters would move the external safety on MHS models from the safe position. The pistol wouldn’t fire on its own, but the safety may not be in the safe position when the pistol is drawn.

Blackhawk has already made changes to the LC2 holster to accommodate the external safety.

This was never an issue with either the L3D and L2D versions of the T-series holsters.

Below is Blackhawk’s official statement on the subject.

Official Message Regarding T-Series L2C for Sig P320-M17/M18 Variant

In an effort to clarify misinformation reported by some media outlets, we would like to take this opportunity to further explain the recent recall of the T-Series L2C that specifically affected the Sig Sauer P320-M17/M18 variants.

To showcase the limited scope of this recall, we’ll outline the levels of specificity you have to go through before someone would be affected in this situation. First, we have the overall family of T-Series holsters, which includes the L3D, L2D, and L2C variants. Next, we’ll drill down a layer further to only the L2C variant of the T-Series. Another narrowing of the focus takes you to the specific L2C Sig P320/P250 fit. One more step, and we arrive at the M17/M18 variant of the Sig P320. If you are one of the few people who owns a Sig P320-M17/M18 and you specifically purchased the L2C version of the T-Series, only then does this recall apply to you.

Thanks to the new nature of this holster as well as the relatively new nature of that handgun being made available to the public, the great likelihood is that there are very few people out there who would meet both criteria of owning a T-Series L2C as well as the M17/M18 variants of the Sig P320.

This recall only affects the T-Series L2C model for the Sig P320/P250-M17/M18, and affects no other models of the T-Series family of holsters. If you are using an M17/M18 variant, the concern is that the added safety mechanism of the firearm could potentially be disengaged during the holstering of the firearm. The holster will in no way actually cause the firearm to discharge.

This issue has since been rectified, so all new T-Series L2C Sig P320/P250 fits will now also work with the M17/M18 variants. Curious to know if you have the “new” or “old” version? Look at the part number on the back of your holster – if it’s stamped with an “A”, then that is the old version. If it is stamped with a “B”, that is the updated version.
