Oregon Trail Defense – Nub Mod For Safariland ALS Holsters

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

OT Defense

Oregon Trail Defense’s Nub Mod is a drop-in replacement piece for Safariland ALS holsters. Made of machined aluminum, which is bead blasted and hard anodized, the Nub Mod offers a more ergonomic contact point for the thumb break lever. The Nub features a reverse angle which matches up with the pad of the user’s thumb, and a wider body which decreases the potential to miss the activation lever.

To show how simple to install the Nub Mod is, OT Defense produced a video of a 9 year old boy installing the part on a 7TS holster:

Thanks to the folks over at HOG Saddle for the tip!

The Hits Keep On Coming! RCS Hires Clint Lynch as Senior Product Designer

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Clint Lynch is top notch! You may not know his name but if you read SSD, you’re familiar with his work. He has made things happen at several big name weapons manufacturers as well as creating a few widgets of his own.

This is great news and he is joining an awesome team full of talented individuals. Congrats to everyone involved! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Raven Concealment Systems Appoints Clint Lynch as Senior Product Designer

North Ridgeville, Ohio — Friday, 3 July 2015

Raven Concealment Systems officially announced today the appointment of Mr. Clint Lynch to the position of Senior Product Designer, effective 29 June. Mr. Lynch has 13 years of design experience in the firearms industry, in both weapons and weapon accessories.

Clint joins RCS from rifle manufacturer Daniel Defense, where he worked as a designer since 2010. Before that, he spent six years working on both pistol and long-gun projects with FNH-USA, most notably serving as Lead U.S. Designer on the Mk. 20 Sniper Support Rifle (SSR). His design career in the world of firearms began when he was hired as a designer by Knights Armament in 2002.
Clint joins Raven’s current pair of creators (fellow Senior Product Designer Eric Rice, and Product Designer Kyle Hendrickson) to give the company a powerhouse stable of CAD talent.

“It’s exciting to join such a talented crew, and to be part of the creative process for an entire line of products,” says Clint. “RCS aggressively encourages their design team to push limits –to be truly innovative—and as a designer, that is a really appealing environment to work in. Most of my career has been spent designing rifles and rifle accessories, so being thrown the brand-new challenge of designing more effective ways to carry a handgun is a welcome change. And the team they have assembled here is top-notch.”

Adding Lynch to the design staff is part of an ongoing push by RCS to expand their injection-molded product line in order to support a wider range of weapons and mission requirements.

“Starting on my first day,” says CEO John “Chappy” Chapman, “one of my top priorities was accelerating the new-product design process. These guys have so many innovative ideas, but with only two designers, there just wasn’t enough horsepower to push projects through to completion at the pace they needed. Adding another top-level designer was essential, and the whole management team was unanimous that we wanted to recruit Clint. We’re thrilled to have him join our team.”

Recover Tactical – HC11 Tactical Holster For 1911

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

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 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.



  • Universal fit for standard railed accessories.
  • Patent pending Frame Locking System available with either Active or Passive retention
  • Available for standard size 1911s that use a Recover CC3H grip and rail system.
  • Right-hand or Left-hand draw
  • Includes paddle mount
  • Recover Tactical is also planning to release a holster for the Beretta 92/96 series and the Glock 17 later in 2015. Recover products are currently available at Cabela’s, Brownells, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Amazon and many more stores.

    H&K VP9 Owners Rejoice! Safariland Adds More than Thirty Holster Fits

    Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

    Fits Now Available in Popular ALS and 7TS Series Holsters


    ONTARIO, California – Safariland announced today the expansion of its holster line with new fits for the Heckler & Koch VP9. Fits are available in the 7TS holster series and in holsters with the highly durable SafariLaminate molded construction – providing more than 30 models to choose from, including duty, concealment and tactical options. The SafariLaminate offerings also include fits for the most popular gun-mounted lights. With so many holster options, Safariland boasts the largest assortment of holsters available for the VP9.

    SafariLaminate models feature a rugged thermal-molded shell and these offerings for the VP9 include Safariland’s popular ALS (Automatic Locking System) retention. Holsters with the ALS retention feature a straight-up draw and ergonomic thumb-only release that makes it very instinctive to use. SafariLaminate construction makes these models highly durable and includes suede lining which protects the handgun’s finish.

    Quickly gaining popularity since they hit the market in 2013, 7TS series holsters are made with a proprietary nylon blend called SafariSeven, which is almost impervious to extreme heat and cold, is non-abrasive to the firearm’s finish and features a special construction that strengthens the holster body. SafariSeven is also impact-resistant and extremely lightweight.  

    These new fits for the Heckler & Koch VP9 are priced from $49.50 – $240.00 and are available in various Safariland finishes and colors. For more information about these Safariland holsters and other premium duty gear products, please visit
