While I would have thought myself an expert on navigating the Safariland and even Bianchi product lines, I seem to have fallen short.  I could have sworn I saw an email or something announcing an OWB holster that would presumably handle a Glock 19 with a TLR-1 attached.  I believe I deleted it with the faulty assumption that Safariland certainly makes such a thing and it would be easy to find.  Neither the baffling Safariland holster-finding site nor the slightly more comprehensible paper catalog seems to have such a thing.  Anyone want to shame me into humility by providing a part number or proof that such a holster exists?

Thanks and be safe.

Are you talking about a holster that is non ALS or SLS?

I ask because I get many emails from Safariland and only recall an ALS shoulder holster as something really new.

I think I got the same email. It showed this photo:

I was also intrigued by this rig and could not find it in their “holster confuser”.

Unfortunatley it was an email for the sale, not the product, so clicking the link was unhelpful...

I have a Bianchi 140 reveal for my G17 with light (also fits my G19 with light). I'm not sure if they make it for the TLR but it should give you a starting point. 

There are some alternative suggestions in this thread, too:

Safariland's website is one of the more fucked up ones on the internet. Their holster finder is riddled with errors.

If you check the blue FIREARMS FOR THIS HOLSTER link right at the bottom of the holster description paragraph... it opens a Gun Fit Chart for that holster. Said chart specifically lists G19/G17 Gen 5 compatibility.  Ditto for Gens 1-4.

Even without that chart, I can't thing of a reason why a Gen 5 wouldn't work as the only real difference (fit-wise) is the bull nose. Note that this holster is for multiple weapons and multiple lights. To accomplish that, it can't be too exacting in terms of precise fit to any single version of handgun. The holster generically locks into the barrel hood area of any gun inserted to obtain friction "click" retention.

Copy that on the Safariland website.   Back when we used Insight lights, Safariland told us what holster we would need, not mentioning that the holster for the pistol-mounted light was the same holster as the one for the larger light/laser combination.   Many a 226 bounced across the streets and range before we figured out that issue (and moved on to the 226R and Streamlight).  Amazing that a company that makes great gear apparently turned web design over to someone who hates its customers.

Good catch on the other GUN FIT section.  Navigating it up top, I was told the holster wouldn't fir Generation 5 weapons though that made no sense to me.

Thanks for navigating the Safariland website for me.  Be safe.
