Holster models designed to also protect the red dot optics
ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, respected for its technologically advanced holsters and other gear for the law enforcement, military, concealment and competitive sporting markets, will premier its new holsters designed specifically to fit and protect handguns with red dot optics at the 2017 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Trade) Show, booth #12762. The majority of these models feature Safariland’s patented Automatic Locking System or ALS®, an intuitive internal locking device offering one of the most secure fits on the market. Among the red dot optic-compatible models in Safariland’s duty, tactical and concealment offerings are the sought after Model 6390 ALS, Model 6360 ALS/SLS, Model 6384 ALS and 6378 ALS holsters.
“Staying true to our commitment to provide first-class fit, form and function, the RDS offerings put Safariland at the forefront of today’s handgun trends,” said James Dawson, duty gear category director at Safariland. “The red dot optic is becoming an increasingly popular option throughout the military, tactical and law enforcement markets; we anticipate this trend to continue and plan to stay ahead of the demand. Not only have we developed retention holsters that fit handguns with red dot optics, but also, they protect the optical sights.”
Utilizing the SafariLaminate™ thermal-molded construction, a protective covering is designed around the optic of the holstered gun. These holsters are also designed with a suede-lining to protect the weapon’s finish. To meet a variety of law enforcement needs, duty models offered include Level I, II and III Retention levels. Available are the Model 6280 SLS Level II Retention™ Mid-Ride Duty Holster, the popular 6360 ALS® Level III Retention™ Mid-Ride Duty Holster and the Model 6390 Open-Top Level I Retention™ duty holster. All are also available in hi-ride and low-ride versions. For concealed carry, the Model 6378 ALS Concealment holster rides close to the body.
Tactical rigs offered are the best-selling Model 6004/6005 SLS Tactical Holster featuring a double leg strap with silicone strips for nonslip traction; the Model 6304/6305 ALS®/SLS Tactical Holster featuring both locking systems for increased retention level, the Model 6354/6355 ALS Tactical Holster, an open-top design without SLS for quick retrieval of weapon; and the models 6384/6385 OMV Tactical Rigs, which are optimized for use also on a MOLLE vest, with lower center of gravity than most other Safariland duty and tactical holsters for less pulling on the vest and an open-top design offering quick retrieval of weapon.
Depending on the holster model selected, these red dot optic compatible holsters are available in all STX finishes and will be available in Cordura® Nylon, MultiCam®, Ranger Green, Coyote, Khaki, or Black and have an MSRP ranging from $200.00 – $350.00. Holsters are available starting February 2017.
