Safariland™ Introduces New Belt Cup Concealment Holsters
JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Safariland, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today that three of its best-selling concealment designs will now be offered with an integrated belt clip. The clip-on versions – the Model 569, Model 5189 and Model 6379 – all feature the Safariland 745BL Belt Clip for easy attachment and detachment from the belt.
“Meeting our customers’ demands in a timely manner is paramount”, said Scott Carnahan, VP for Equipment Products. “By incorporating our rugged and versatile Belt Clip into our top three concealment holster designs, we were able to produce a very effective belt clip design unique to the industry to meet our customers’ needs for a convenient, yet extremely durable concealment carry .”
The Model 569 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. It features a suede lining to help protect the weapon’s finish and is available in STX Plain Black or Carbon Fiber Look finish.
The Model 5189 is compact and lightweight with low-cut sides, allowing for ease of draw and added comfort. The Model 5189 is also available with fits for light mounted weapons and is available in all STX finishes: Plain Black, Basketweave, Hi Gloss, and OD, FDE Brown and Foliage Green.
The Model 6379 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 6379 is offered to fit for most pistols and is available in all STX finishes, and in Carbon Fiber Look.
The Model 745BL Belt Clip utilized on all three Safariland concealment holsters is constructed of durable nylon and clips on and off the belt without having to remove other accessories on the belt. The 745BL fits belt widths from 1.5” (38mm) to 2.25” (58mm) by using an included adapter. 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:
