Blackhawk Introduces New T-Series Red Dot Sight (RDS) Holster

Thursday, June 25th, 2020

New Level 3 Duty Holster Compatible with Pistol Mounted Red Dots

  

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – June 25, 2020 – Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, announced today that the company’s popular T-Series line will be expanded to offer new Level 3 Duty Light Bearing holsters compatible with pistol mounted red dot sights. The new T-Series Red Dot Sight (RDS) Holsters are designed for use with the Trijicon RMR/SRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro, SIG Romeo1Pro, and other similar sized optics.

Developed to support law enforcement officers who are authorized to use red dot sights on patrol sidearms, the T-Series RDS Holsters provide maximum protection for both the firearm and optic. The dual-injected molded holster provides proven durability for the sidearm while an additional removable rotating dust cover further protects the optic from impacts and debris. This combination of features provides users with a sleek, ergonomic design without adding extra bulk to the holster.

The T-Series RDS Holster will initially be available in a right handed, light-bearing Level 3 Duty (L3D) model for the Glock 17.  Additional models will soon be available including both Level 2 Duty (L2D) and L3D in left and right-hand configurations for the Glock 17 and SIG SAUER P320 pistols. The holsters can be used with the Streamlight TLR-1 and TLR-2 pistol lights.

“As more law enforcement agencies authorize the use of red dot sights on patrol sidearms, the need for a duty rated holster that can accommodate these optics has never been greater,” said Evan McNamara, Director of Product Development for Blackhawk. “With its streamlined thumb-activation retention, the T-Series RDS Holsters keep your firearm and rear optic at the ready while maintaining total security.”

The Blackhawk T-Series line is the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster. The holster combines the company’s proven outer body strength made possible with a glass reinforced nylon along with a soft touch inner layer that is both super slick and sound-dampening. This durable and efficient, low-friction design translates into a smooth, quiet draw or when re-holstering the sidearm. 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.

The Warrior with Light is an outside-the-waistband holster designed for a handgun with light attached. This holster can be worn for range use, concealed carry or general carry. The Warrior with Light’s all-Kydex body includes a retention screw to allow the user to fit the holster as tightly or loosely to the gun as they choose. The Warrior with Light attaches to the belt with two High Speed Gear belt width-adjustable, polymer belt loops.

The Twin Warrior Mag Pouch is an OWB pouch designed to carry two additional magazines. With a similar “pancake” design to the Warrior Holster and Warrior with Light Holster, this pouch has a very thin design, making it perfect for concealed carry or undercover wear.

Safariland 7TS Series Holsters for Red Dot Optics Now Available for Glock Handguns

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

Seventeen models offered all with ALS retention
ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, today announced its popular 7TS™ series holsters specifically designed to fit and protect handguns with red dot optics are now available to order. The new models are designated 7TS RDS, and current fits include the Glock 17, 19, 34, 45 and 47 MOS handguns.

“Red dot optics continue to gain strength in the marketplace, as evidenced by the high demand of our initial SafariLaminate™ models. And now, we have combined the virtually indestructible qualities of our 7TS holster materials with a protective hood design for red dot optics, creating the new industry standard. These are sure to gain popularity very quickly,” said James Dawson, duty gear category director for Safariland.

Safariland’s 7TS RDS holsters are constructed from durable SafariSeven™ material, a proprietary DuPont nylon blend that enables precision manufacturing while retaining exceptional durability in temperature extremes, allowing these reliably performing holsters to be practically impervious to the elements. Further, they require little maintenance to keep them functioning and looking good, and they are completely non-abrasive to firearm finishes.

The protective hood design on these models protect the red dot optic from damage and the elements. The pivoting hood automatically rotates forward to open as the user releases the ALS® retention lever via the thumb upon the draw. The handgun is then secured in the holster automatically upon reholstering. This best-in-class patented, intuitive internal locking device offers one of the most secure retention capabilities available today.

Seventeen model variations are now available for duty, tactical, and concealment carry, including the top-selling 7360RDS ALS/SLS Level III Retention Duty Holster. Models include:

Comp-Tac Offers New Holster Fits for STI Staccato

Tuesday, May 12th, 2020

HOUSTON, May 11, 2020 – Comp-Tac® recently added holster fits for the STI Staccato in the International™ Holster and the Blue Duty Holster Series™.

Comp-Tac worked directly with STI International to develop an STI-branded holster for the STI Staccato 2011® that is available on their website.

The Blue Duty Holster Series™ is Comp-Tac’s answer to LE customers who want to carry a weapon with a rail-mounted light AND a red-dot optic. The thumb-release bale is designed to work with most red-dot optics on the market, allowing officers to carry the most up-to date equipment out there. This fit is for the STI Staccato with Surefire® X300.

The International Holster is an outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster with a modular mounting design that can be worn as a belt mount, a paddle mount, or with a drop offset piece. The International Holster is a popular choice for competition shooting, having been chosen as the top holster in International Defensive Pistol Association’s Championship Equipment Survey eight years in a row. The International is optics ready and can be purchased right- and left-handed shooters, as well as in a variety of colors.

Comp-Tac started in 2001 to address the lackluster offerings of concealable holsters on the market and rapidly gained popularity in the concealed carry and competition holster markets, while also becoming a trusted source for off-duty LE and undercover military members overseas. Comp-Tac joined the High Speed Gear® family in mid-2018 to compliment the brand’s already diverse offerings.

True North Concepts Launches Modular Holster Adapter

New Modular Adapter Eliminates Unwanted Movement Common with Factory Adapters

 

May 4, 2020 – Today, True North Concepts, LLC announced the launch of the True North Modular Holster Adapter, a rugged adapter designed to eliminate the unwanted movement, flex and sliding that are common in most factory belt adapters.

The Modular Holster Adapter is the first adapter of its kind to specifically solve the problem of unwanted movement that nearly all polymer belt adapters create for law enforcement, military and other shooters. It does this by combining modularity with rigidity. Unlike other adapters, the True North holster adapter lets the user decide how they want to carry their pistol rather than forcing them into a one-size-fits-one-belt carry system.

Its modular design gives holsters mounted to the adapter greater mounting rigidity. The adapter’s proprietary modular positioning features include:

• 20-degree-wide mount positioning range; 10-degree forward cant and 10-degree negative cant
• Three vertical mounting points set ½-inch apart giving the user three height options
• Supports “Mid-Ride” mode of carry that will drop the pistol below his or her belt line, allowing it to clear body armor and pouches.

The Modular Holster Adapter fits all Safariland “three-hole pattern” type holsters and multiple brands that use this method of attachment. It also supports common quick detach holster systems, including the QLS. It’s made from non-ferrous DFARS-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, is Type 3 MIL-SPEC hard coat anodized and is made in America.

The Modular Holster Adapter mounting system gives users two primary mounting options – the ability to thread the mounting bars through PALS webbing to attach the holster to MOLLE-type battle belts, or to bolt the adapter directly onto any standard gun belt with a width of up to 2 ¼-inches. The Adapter also includes mounting points for use with a wide array of popular quick release belt mounts, including Tek-Lok and polymer MOLLE-type hardware. It is available now in black and dark earth finishes.

The Modular Holster Adapter is available now at TrueNorth-USA.com and ready to ship. More information on holster compatibility, pricing, specs and more is also available now at TrueNorth-USA.com.
