Safariland Introduces Low Signature Holster with Cordura Nylon Finish

January 16, 2012
Jacksonville, Fla.

Safariland®, a BAE Systems business, introduced today the Model 6378USN, ALS® Low Signature Holster. Building on the successful concealment holster version, featuring the Automatic Locking System (ALS) internal retention, this new design features a Cordura® nylon covering designed to provide a low signature to infrared lighting.


The 6378USN features a combination of SafariLaminate™ wraparound construction as its foundation, giving the holster its shape and strength, together with the abrasion-resistant capabilities of Cordura® nylon for the outer finish. Additionally, the Automatic Locking System offers excellent weapon security in an open-top holster. Once the weapon is holstered, it automatically locks into place; when the ALS is de-activated by the thumb, a simple straight up draw is used. If desired, this holster can be further secured with the addition of an optional ALS Guard, which provides for a manual lock on the retention mechanism.


“Although Cordura nylon has become a commonplace material found on products ranging from backpacks to car seats, Safariland is the first to offer a laminate holster covered with Cordura,” stated James Dawson, Duty Gear Category Director for Safariland.  “Given the popularity of the current 6378 ALS concealment holster, and requests for this type of offering, this is sure to gain rapid acceptance in the marketplace.”


The Model 6378USN includes both an injection molded paddle and a belt loop that fits 1.5 inch to 1.75 inch belt widths. It incorporates the Safariland three-hole pattern for mounting the paddle and belt slide, but also allows the user to mount the holster in various configurations with the use of the optional Quick Locking System (QLS), which provide for a rapid transition between mounting points. SafariSuede™ synthetic suede lining protects the gun’s finish.


This model is currently offered for the following gun models: Sig Sauer P226 and Beretta 92F/M9. Coming in the first quarter of 2012 will be the Glock 17 and 19. Cordura® nylon finishes offered are MultiCam®, Ranger Green, Coyote, and Khaki. MRSP is $110.00.
