Safariland released the all-new 7TS Holster Series. This next generation injection-molded holster design is constructed of SafariSeven material, a proprietary nylon blend from DuPont that is completely non-abrasive to the weapon’s finish. Virtually impervious to weather extremes, the 7TS holsters are operationally and structurally cold tolerant to at least -50 degrees Fahrenheit and heat tolerant to at least 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Adding to its numerous features and functionality, the 7TS line was engineered to ensure strength and rigidity by incorporating certain “corrugated” patterns into the holster’s interior. This design also features built-in “risers” inside the holster specifically to ensure minimal contact of the weapon while in the holster, creating air space around it, allowing dirt and moisture to quickly clear any contact with the firearm. Since the SafariSeven material is nylon only, and does not contain any other filler material, the holster actually becomes stronger in water, and can be submerged in water indefinitely and still maintain shape and function. And finally, the matte finish decreases reflection and can be cleared of scratches with a simple scouring pad.
Initial models offered consist of three concealment holsters and two tactical thigh rigs. These 7TS holsters incorporate the proven ALS internal retention system, which provides excellent weapon retention and offers an ergonomic, simple straight up draw once the release is deactivated. These models are compatible with all Safariland holster mounting options.
All models are available in the SafariSeven Plain Black finish and are currently offered in two fits for the Beretta 92 and Glock 17/22. Additional fits and models that include ALS uniformed duty holsters, SLS duty & tactical holsters and ALS/SLS duty & tactical holsters will be available in the near future.
Now available for the Glock 17/22 are four duty, one concealment and four tactical models. For users seeking the combined internal thumb retention of the ALS with the external SLS rotating hood, the ALS Level III Retention duty holsters (Models 7360 and 7365), tactical thigh rigs (Models 7304 and 7305) and the mid-ride Model 7367 concealment holsters are now offered.
These models are offered in both Black and FDE Brown. Additional fits for the Smith & Wesson M&P 9/40, Glock 19/23 and Beretta 92F will be released later this year.
