First Look: Safariland 7TS Series Holsters for Red-Dot Optics

Safariland is now producing a version of its popular 7TS series holsters, the 7TS RDS, specifically designed to fit and protect handguns with red-dot optics. Currently, the 7TS RDS fits the Glock 17, 19, 34, 45 and 47 MOS handguns.

“Red-dot optics continue to gain strength in the marketplace, as evidenced by the high demand of our initial SafariLaminate models. And now, we have combined the virtually indestructible qualities of our 7TS holster materials with a protective hood design for red-dot optics, creating the new industry standard. These are sure to gain popularity very quickly,” said James Dawson, duty gear category director for Safariland.

Safariland’s 7TS RDS holsters are built from durable SafariSeven material, a proprietary DuPont nylon blend which enables the holsters to be made with precision manufacturing techniques, while still retaining exceptional durability. Built to withstand extreme swings in temperatures, these reliable holsters are practically impervious to the elements and require little maintenance to keep them functioning and looking good. In addition to this, they are completely non-abrasive to firearm finishes.

The 7TS RDS uses the Safariland ALS retention system, a best-in-class patented, intuitive internal locking device that offers one of the most secure retention capabilities available today. The protective hood design on the 7TS RDS safeguards the red-dot optic from damage and the elements. The pivoting hood automatically opens forward as the user activates the ALS retention lever with their thumb during the draw. The handgun is then secured in the holster automatically upon re-holstering.

Seventeen model variations are now available for duty, tactical and concealment carry, including the top-selling 7360RDS ALS/SLS Level III Retention Duty Holster. The 7TS RDS models for the Glock 17MOS, 19MOS, 34MOS, 45MOS and 47MOS (also compatible with non-MOS models) are available in either SafariSeven Plain Black or FDE Brown finishes.

MSRP for the 7TS RDS ranges from $123.50 to $270.50, and for more information on the holsters and the rest of the SafariLand line, please visit safariland.com.
