First Look: Blackhawk and Staccato 2011 T-Series Duty Holster

posted on June 26, 2020

Staccato and Blackhawk are releasing the T-Series Red Dot Sight (RDS) Level 2 and Level 3 Retention Duty Holsters, built specifically for Staccato 2011 pistols. Staccato and Blackhawk worked together on the design, testing and development of the new holster line to make sure they work with the Staccato 3.9 inch, 4.15 inch, 5 inch, and 5-inch compensated duty guns with mounted lights.

“We are excited to partner with Staccato on the development of this T-Series duty holster,” said Army veteran Evan McNamara, Blackhawk’s Director of Products and Marketing. “It’s really a natural fit as we’ve combined the best and fastest duty holster on the market with one of the premier shooting duty handguns. This powerful combination brings unmatched performance to those who demand it.”

“The Blackhawk team has been incredibly responsive, thoughtful and thorough in every step of the design, development and testing process for the dedicated Staccato 2011 T-Series duty holsters. They have been great partners and the product itself is phenomenal. It is without question the fastest, most durable and reliable duty holster on the market. It is a perfect complement to our pistols.” said Marine Corps veteran and Staccato CEO Nate Horvath.

The new T-Series holster was designed to meet the specific needs of law enforcement. It is the first L2D and L3D models offered by Blackhawk to accommodate both pistol-mounted red-dot sights and lights. The T-Series RDS holster is also the first duty holster that can support three different SureFire weapon lights.

Features for the T-Series RDS holsters include:

  • Pull tested and approved for duty use with all barrel lengths.
  • Compatible with iron sights as well as most red dots from Leupold, Trijicon, Aimpoint, SIG and Holosun and other similar-sized red-dot optics.
  • Works with Surefire X-300U-A, X-300U-B and X-400.
  • Available in level 2 and level 3 retention.
  • Available in right-hand or left-hand draw.


MSRP for the 2011 T-Series RDS Level 2 and Level 3 Retention Duty Holsters ranges from $149.95 to $169.95. More information on these holsters and other products from Staccato is available at
