For users who want secure retention and need to protect their weapon’s red dot optics, we’ve engineered the perfect line of holsters. Built on the foundation of our 6000 series holsters, our RDS line fits firearms mounted with red dot sights. The holster not only protects the RDS housing from breakage, it helps to stop debris and water from accessing the red dot cavity and keeps the RDS glass clean. Otherwise, if debris and water settles on the RDS glass, the operator’s view of their red dot sight is impeded.
While on patrol, officers experience an additional measure of safety with the RDS holster ALS/SLS Level III Retention (not pictured). The SLS rotating hood closure allows for a smoother, single-motion draw, and greater protection against attempted firearm takeaways. Operators simply depress the hood and push forward to release. The ALS system automatically secures the firearm once holstered, until the lock is released with the thumb, and the firearm can be drawn straight out of the holster with no twisting needed. An additional measure of protection is provided by the Hood Guard, an external shield over the thumb lever, which covers the release mechanism.
Our RDS holsters can take a beating, no matter the day-to-day abuse it goes through. The durable SafariLaminate™ construction is impervious to moisture and maintains structural integrity during the rigors of everyday policing. The variety of finishes available will provide a professional looking appearance for years. The interior of the holster is lined with suede to protect the finish of the gun and sights.
Several different belt mount options are available including the standard mid-ride, but duty versions also include the low-ride (which rides 1.5″ lower on the belt) and hi-ride (which brings the holster 1.5″ higher on the duty belt than the mid-ride). Our RDS models are also available on various thigh rig platforms and even in concealment configurations on paddle of belt loops.
Our RDS line currently has fits available for Glock 19/23, 17/22, 34/35, Sig P320, P320C, S&W M&P 9/40 and Longslide 9L & Core with more fits to be released. Stay tuned!
