Jim Dexter found an issue with his comped duty pistol and his Safariland ALS duty holster. Placing the pistol into the holster for one handed manipulation with the slide locked to the rear requires the ALS system to be deactivated twice. The first deactivation unlocks the weapon for draw, the second release is required to allow the comp to pass through the locking mechanism.
Does anyone have a lead on a duty grade holster for a Sig P229/light bearing/Red Dot Optic capable? I need roughly 30 and would be willing to place special order if necessary. Safariland and subsidiaries are ALL NEG. with no plans to make what I need. Thank you in advance.
Hey guys, I just got a Safariland 6378 for my Glock 20 with the Agency Arms "Gavel" slide cuts. There are forward-slanting serrations on top of the slide from the ejection port all the way to the muzzle end of the slide. I'm not sure how to add pics on this forum yet, but if you Google "Agency Arms Gavel," you'll see what I mean. The cuts are super-functional for a woods gun (makes it way easier to rack the slide one-handed against most surfaces, including boot soles and tree trunks), but...
Trying to determine what the P/N would be for a Safariland 6377/6378 that would fit a G19 with TBRC comp and Streamlight TLR-1. My best guess for fit is one that would be a model for G34. I have never been able to accurately of confidently navigate Safarilands codes. Anyone have the ability to help me out please speak up.
Is there a Safariland holster that can accommodate a VP9 with a X300 and threaded barrel. This would be going on my battle belt. I just picked up a threaded barrel and I really want to run on the battle belt but trying to track that down overseas is painful. If there another holster that I can run please let me know. Thanks for all the help!
I've been meaning to do this for awhile, finally got around to making a video with my wife's iPhone... Safariland claims the 7TS holster is impervious to heat, cold and water essentially and has sent it out to testers in a case of water with...
Thanks for sharing this information. The gun that you had the extended/threaded barrel on….was that a 19? If so, did it fit in the 7TS holster made for the Glock 19, or did you have to use a Glock 17 holster to fit the extra barrel length? Nice oven mitt, by the way.
thats my favorite mitt.... Yes that is a Glock 19, the 19 holster has a hole out the bottom so an extended barrel works fine. Suppressor would not. The only difference between the Glock 17 and Glock 19 light holsters are the length of the barrel plug. I believe I have just 17 light holsters and can run the 19 in them just fine with the light on. Without the light they work but has some play.
Thanks, micahSS . That is kind of what I was wondering about, since I use Glock 19s with extended barrels and weapon lights. So if I understand you correctly, you are recommending that I should use a Light Bearing Glock 17 7TS holster, if I have a light mounted on my Glock 19 with extended barrel, and just use a regular Glock 19 7TS holster, if I do not have the light mounted?

Plus, the Nub makes it easier to deactivate the ALS (it's also mentioned in the above video). Not something I necessarily want in a retention duty holster, but that's just me. And I love my 7360.

Dirty- I currently run a G22 on duty with a U-Boat and DG in a 7360. I had to dremel out the rear lip where the DG switch sits while holstered. If you look at that lip there is a significant chuck of plastic right in that spot so I didn't think it would ruin the integrity to remove some of it. The only downside I've come across is...

Yup, your glock 19 with barrel extended is same barrel length as the 17 essentially.

I'm currently having the Nub mod for the SLS (hood) level 3 holster worked up. It will be shaped a tad different and require you to remove the hood mechanism, add a small washer to the top screw to give it a bit of stand off, but still have most of the same benefit. It will come with a wrench for the holster, a washer or two, and the nub kit. A few...
So...solved via consultation outside lightfighter, but I thought I should post the solution here in case others encounter the same problem. It was a passive tension issue. My holster is the Safariland 6378 light-bearing (Surefire X300U) model for the Glock 20, but my gun is currently running an Inforce APL. The Inforce is much smaller than the Surefire, and this created a lot of empty space in the back of the holster that allowed the weapon to "rock" forward quite a bit. This forward...
the code for the 34 with a tlr, stx plain and right hand is 6377-6832-411 Not sure how much the comp is adding to your pistol to see if you might be able to get away with the 17 holster. Quick search also seems like you might have to order from safariland direct.
I have found Safariland to have pretty good customer service and I've had to call them several times over the years to ask some detailed questions in order to get the right holster. They've always been able to help. You might give them a call and see what they know about your situation. (800) 347-1200.
6377-6832-411 Just got off the phone with Safariland and while they wont definitively confirm that this is what I need, I'm pretty sure it'll do the job. My G19 with comp is only about .200" shorter than a G 34 slide so I should be GTG. $64.50 and 20% off of that if I order on-line. Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated.
So as I’m about to punch the place order button I notice 20% has not been applied. I cleared my cart and send a message to C/S to see if there’s a coupon code to enter...crickets. I get home and with a little judicious use of my heat gun and pliers, I get my current 6378 for a G17/G22 with light to work. The gun locks in as it should but I do have about 3/16” of the comp sticking out of the bottom. I’m satisfied. I have a working holster and saved about $70 in the process. If this was for...
If I had been told by the C/S lady I talked to I would have. That’s the thing, she said 20% off if I order online but didn’t or wouldn’t tell me what the code is, and no response to my e-mail request for the code.
