    Safariland red dot holsters — Glock and others

    OK, we know the Safariland website sucks generally, and “holster finder” search function is particularly bad. However, unless I am missing something, they seem to be the only game in town for a retention holster with a hood that attempts to protect an optic.

    For a few years, I have been using this. It is a 6384RDS-6832 Glock 34/35.

    Here is what it does well. It fits a Glock MOS 17/34/19 with an RMR. Here it is with a direct milled 17 with a RMR.

    It also worked for my P10F/C with an optic.

    Here is what it doesn’t do well. It only partially covers an Acro on a Glock MOS.

    With a MOS with an SRO it works, but with a direct milled SRO, where the optic sits a smidge further forward than the MOS installation, it will not work. Also, with a 34 with a tungsten guide rod, it doesn’t work.

    I see that there is a 6390RDS available now. Is that any better, and is there something announced at SHOT that would be worth waiting for?
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I have both the 6384rds & 6390rds for Glock 34's and I don't see much if any difference. I bought the 6384rds hoping it would fit different than the 6390rds but was disappointed to see it was, as far as I can tell, identical.

    I recently bought both a 6390RDS and a 6378RDS for my G19/x300. The holsters themselves are identical with the exception of the location where the nuts to attach it to the holster are located. I have found over the years that the secret sauce (for me) when it comes to perfect holster placement is a 6378 mounted to a UBL. Cheaper than a typical duty rig as well.

    I have that setup, with a QLS attachment, on a training belt. Actually sits a bit lower than I'd like....I like the mid ride UBL height, personally.

    ETA: and you're right.....way cheaper than just buying the duty rig version outright.

    When HolsterOps was being closed down, to clear my pending M&P RDS holster order, they sent me one of those. Meh. I got two correct height ones in and they'll go into service once I get the angled cant brackets from Canada.

    M&P 2.0 4.25", left-handed, are numbered: 6390RDS-2222

    Are these out yet? Any idea if you can just order the holster body?

    Did some chop work on my 6390RDS. It’s gonna be used with a smaller light than the x300 so it was way bigger than necessary. High rise UBL and a BlackboxCustom negative cant plate.
