SAFARILAND INTRODUCES NEW ALS™ TACTICAL HOLSTERS

ONTARIO, Calif. – November 7, 2007 —Safariland, part of the BAE Systems Products Group and one of the world’s leading suppliers of holsters and duty gear, introduces two new Automatic Locking System (ALS™) Tactical Holsters – the Model 6354 and Model 6355 – that are available for the first time without the Self Locking System (SLS).

The Model 6354 ALS Tactical Holster open top design without the SLS offers all of the most popular features of the Model 6004 Tactical Holster, and provides an extra measure of security. With the ALS system, once the weapon is holstered, it “locks” into place providing additional security from typical open top holsters. The locking 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.

The Model 6355 ALS Tactical Holster, which employs the same security features as the Model 6354, also incorporates a quick release leg harness, offering additional versatility and usability for law enforcement and tactical personnel.

Constructed of thermal-molded SAFARI-LAMINATE™ to protect the handgun and sights, the Model 6354 and Model 6355 are also suede lined to protect the handgun’s finish. Additionally, both new models are standard with an adjustable double leg strap and leg shroud with mounting holes for optional accessories.

The Model 6354 is available in STX Tactical finish, with an MSRP of $156.00. The Model 6355 ALS Tactical Holster is also available in STX Tactical finish, with an MSRP of $165.00. Both are available for a wide variety of handguns with or without a mounted light.


SAFARILAND INTRODUCES NEW MOLLE HOLSTER SYSTEM AND MOLLE ACCESSORIES FOR 2007

ONTARIO, Calif. – October 30, 2007 —Safariland, part of the BAE Systems Products Group and one of the world’s leading suppliers of holsters and duty gear, introduces the Model 6004-MS8 -- a new holster offering for MOLLE (MOdular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) systems -- as well as the Model 6004-9 MOLLE Accessory Plate and the Model 6004-8 MOLLE System Adapter.

The new Model 6004-MS8 Small MOLLE System Adapter integrates Safariland’s popular Model 6004 Self Locking System (SLS) Tactical Holster with a small MOLLE adapter plate to create a compact, versatile holster for MOLLE systems. The SLS holster was designed for vest carry and provides a smoother, single motion draw and greater protection against attempted weapon takeaways. The Model 6004-MS8 MOLLE adapter plate/holster combination secures the weapon to the vest under rugged operating conditions, while allowing the user to position the holster vertically or at an angle for maximum usability.

As part of the system, the Model 6004 Tactical Holster features the Safariland™ SLS rotating hood system and is constructed of thermal-molded SAFARI-LAMINATE™, protecting the weapon against etching and bluing wear. This holster is available for a variety of large frame semi-automatics, as well as weapons with or without mounted lights.

The new Model 6004-9 MOLLE Accessory Plate enables wearers to mount a variety of accessories to their MOLLE systems, including the new Safariland Model 37-8 Impact Round Case and Model 38-8 Impact Round Case. The Model 6004-9 MOLLE Accessory Plate is constructed of thermal-molded SAFARI-LAMINATE for added strength and stability, and can be mounted vertically or angled on vests to meet individual requirements.


SAFARILAND INTRODUCES NEW RAPID LIGHT SYSTEM

ONTARIO, Calif. – September 10, 2007—Safariland Ltd, Inc., a BAE Systems company, one of the world’s largest suppliers of holsters and duty gear, announced today the introduction of the Rapid Light System (RLS™) for law enforcement, security personnel, and civilians that combines a gun-mounted light, and hand held flashlight into one integrated light system.

“The concept and development of the RLS is revolutionary to this industry, yet it is an incredibly simple design,” said Scott Carnahan, director of Marketing, Safariland.. “RLS reduces the amount of equipment that law enforcement and tactical personnel must carry by providing a single product that addresses multiple situations with ease and flexibility. It is also a great tool for civilian use.”

Offering maximum versatility and usability, the RLS system employs a single, ultra-bright flashlight and separate gun mount with a built-in clip. The flashlight mounts onto any weapon incorporating an integral rail or Picatinny rail system, including rifles and shotguns. Designed to mount in two quick and easy steps, the RLS slides onto a weapon’s rail and “locks” into place, rapidly transitioning from standard flashlight for hand-held use to tactical illumination. The light can easily be removed from the mount and the belt clip secures easily to belts or garments, eliminating the need for additional equipment on an already full duty belt.

With ultra-bright LED technology, the RLS flashlight is bright enough to serve as an officer’s primary light system, providing more than 50 hours of use with just three AAA batteries. The standard push button provides controllable on/off illumination of a target, minimizing loss of handgrip, sight picture and exposure.

The RLS mount can be purchased separately, allowing the user to attach their own compact flashlight. It can accommodate a variety of compact lights ranging from .97 inches to 1.06 inches in diameter.

The RLS Light/Mount System is available in black, with an MSRP of $125.00. RLS Mount Only has an MSRP of $45.00; Light Only has an MSRP of $95.00.

SAFARILAND INTRODUCES NEW TACTICAL ALS™ HOLSTERS FOR LIGHT MOUNTED WEAPONS

ONTARIO, Calif. – February 15, 2007—Safariland Ltd., Inc., one of the world’s largest suppliers of holsters and duty gear, announces today the addition of two new Automatic Locking System (ALS™) tactical holsters for light mounted weapons – Model 6304 and Model 6305 ALS holsters.

With the ALS system, once the weapon is holstered, it “locks” into place providing additional security from typical open top holsters. The locking 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.

These new ALS tactical holsters for light mounted weapons are designed to accommodate a variety of rail mounted lights on Glock and Sig Sauer weapons, with more fits to follow. This feature is ideal for the low-light tactical situations that are encountered today. Both holster models shield the bezel of the light to protect the lens, yet allow debris to fall through the openings at the bottom of the holster to prevent damage during retention and rigorous missions.

Safariland’s latest holster retention technology, the ALS, is an addition to the primary retention system (SLS) and features an internal locking device that retains the weapon in all directions when the primary device is open, providing Level II Plus Retention™ that can be further upgraded to Level III Plus Retention™ with the addition of the Sentry. Since there is no snap, the SLS allows for a smoother single-motion draw and provides additional security against attempted weapon takeaways, while providing reliability in the unpredictable conditions that occur during tactical operations.

Available in several tactical finishes to protect light mounted weapons, both the Model 6304 and Model 6305 are constructed with thermal-molded SAFARI-LAMINATE™, safeguarding the gun and the molded sight track, and features soft SAFARI-SUEDE™, providing additional protection for the sight and finish of the gun. The double leg straps and leg shroud provides lightweight, simplistic operation. The Model 6305 holster features a detachable buckle on the vertical leg strap for added versatility.

The Model 6304 w/ Light and 6305 w/ Light holsters are available in STX Tactical™ finish with an MSRP of $192.00 and $201.00 respectively. For additional fit and finish information, please visit www.safariland.com.

The SLS allows for a smoother single-motion draw and greater protection against attempted takeaways.

Safariland™ Introduces New Retention Holster Concept To Its Line of Duty Holsters

ONTARIO, CA, January 1, 2006—A year in the making, Safariland has introduced the next evolution of duty retention holsters with their all new Automatic Locking System (ALS™) uniformed duty holsters. Available in either a standard ride (Model 6360) or with a 1.5" belt drop (Model 6365), the key to this system is an internal locking device that secures the weapon in all directions simply upon reholstering, providing Level II Plus Retention™, which can also be elevated to Level III Plus Retention™ with the addition of the Sentry.

The Model 6360 ALS™ Level II Plus duty holster utilizes the SLS rotating hood design as the primary security system for a smoother single-motion draw and greater protection against attempted weapon takeaways. Yet uniquely new is the ALS™ internal locking mechanism that locks into the ejection port combines with the SLS, offering three distinct design differences from previous models. First, once the weapon is holstered, it "locks" into place, providing an extra measure of security from the standard Level II Retention™ holsters.  Second, once the SLS is released, the holster is completely operable with the thumb, making it very instinctive to use. And finally, when all retention devices are released, the weapon can be drawn straight out of the holster with no twisting or other motion required.

The Models 6360 and 6365 feature a tensioning device, molded sight track and SAFARI-SUEDE™ lining to protect the gun's sights and finish. Its wraparound construction and SAFARILAMINATE™ structure provides the strongest design combination available.

The new Model 6304 and Model 6305 include all the features of the standard 6004/6005.
