Safariland™ Introduces New Concealment Holster Packages
JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Safariland, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today that three of its best-selling concealment holsters, the Model 568, Model 5188 and Model 6378, will now come standard with both a concealment belt slide and paddle mount. The new Safariland holster packages will provide users with the convenience of purchasing a single holster with a variety of mounts for mission-specific requirements.
“These packages continue to demonstrate why Safariland is the industry leader when it comes to providing users with products that meet their shooting needs,” said Scott Carnahan, Vice President of Category and Segment Marketing, Safariland. “Now that all our companies are integrated under the single Safariland umbrella, no other company is as well equipped to respond to the various needs of our clientele.”
The Model 568 concealment holster provides flexibility for officers who carry a range of concealable weapons by providing four pistol and four revolver fits that can accommodate more than 100 different firearms. The Model 568 and Model 6378 feature a suede lining to help protect the weapon’s finish and are available in STX plain black or carbon fiber-look finish.
The Model 5188 concealment holster features an ergonomically designed paddle mount to provide greater concealability. The holster is compact and lightweight with low-cut sides, allowing for ease of draw and added comfort. The Model 5188 is also available with fits for light mounted weapons and is available in STX plain black.
The Model 6378 concealment holster features the industry-proven Automatic Locking System (ALS™) that automatically secures the weapon once holstered. The open-top design allows for a natural thumb-only draw. No fingers are needed in the trigger guard area when removing the weapon from the holster. The Model 6378 fits most pistols and is available in STX Plain Black and Carbon Fiber Look finishes.
All three Safariland concealment holsters include the patented injection-molded belt loop that is user-adjustable for cant angle and can be worn cross draw, incorporating 1.5”-1.75” (38mm – 45mm) slots. The belt loop is also available in six other offerings to fit both standard and low-ride carry options for 1.5” – 2.25” belt widths. All three models are constructed of genuine SafariLaminate™ for added durability and comfort. The new concealment holsters are IDPA- (International Defensive Pistol Association) approved for use in IDPA matches. MSRPs are as follows:
