Safariland Laminate Holster Reminder Regarding Direct Exposure to Excessive Heat
Safariland would like to remind all duty gear holster customers of the need to limit direct exposure of the Safariland laminate holster to excessive heat. Particularly, users are directed to not leave their laminate holsters in the car exposed to direct sunlight magnified through the window glass. Excessive direct heat exposure to Safariland’s laminate holster can cause deforming of the holster body that may impact its performance. Exposure to excessive heat can cause the gun to stick or jam due to the swelling action.

Safariland Service Bulletin for Bianchi Models 82, 83, 84 and 4584 Manufactured before February 2010
Re: Notice Regarding Potential for Undersized Dowel Pin in Bianchi® Models 82, 83, 84 and 4584 Manufactured BEFORE February 2010.
Safariland would like to notify Bianchi holster customers of the need to inspect the Bianchi Models 82, 83, 84 and 4584 holsters for possible loose or undersized dowel pins in the housing system. This issue potentially affects those Bianchi holsters of the identified models that were produced before February 2010. Our testing of holsters shows that the handgun will insert and draw even without the dowel pin. Nevertheless, we are asking our customers to inspect their Bianchi holster for any signs of this issue.
