Safariland® Debuts Two Concealment Belt Slide Holsters With New “Automatic Locking System”

January 01, 2006
Ontario, CA

New for Safariland’s 2006 line-up are two new concealment belt slide holsters – Models 6351/6361 - that incorporate their innovative Automatic Locking System (ALS™) as the means of weapon retention. With the Safariland ALS™ system, once the weapon is holstered, it “locks” into place providing additional security from typical open top holsters. The device is completely operable with the thumb, making it very instinctive to use. Plus, once the retention device is released, the weapon can be drawn straight out of the holster with no twisting or other motion required. Also available are Models 6358/6368 in a paddle version.

The Model 6351 is a low profile ALS™ version featuring the ALS internal locking mechanism that locks into the ejection port as the means to retain the weapon. The Model 6361 features Safariland’s time-tested Self Locking System (SLS) system as the primary security system, combined with the ALS® for further retention capabilities. Both models are worn on the belt in a semi-hi-ride position with a slightly forward weapon cant. They ride close to the body aiding in concealment and comfort. Additionally, they feature suede lining to help protect the gun’s sights and finish, and the SAFARI-LAMINATE™ structure with wraparound design provides the strongest design combination available.

The Model 6351 is offered in a Plain Black SAFARI-LAMINATE™ finish or STX Tactical™ finish with an MSRP of $100.00 and $85.00 respectively. The Model 6361 with SLS is offered in the same finishes with an MSRP of $140.00 and $125.00 respectively. Both are offered in four belt loop sizes: 1.5”, 1.75”, 2.0” and 2.25”. Available now for the most popular semiauto fits.
