Safariland Announces Holster Line Expansion for Popular Compact Pistols

Safariland

The Safariland Group announced it will show new concealed carry holster options at the National Rifle Association Annual Meetings in Atlanta. The new rigs will be offered under the company’s Safariland and Bianchi brands. Here is a quick overview of some of the new offerings.

Bianchi

Bianchi will offer new gun fits in six of its current holster designs. The new guns covered will be the:

  • Beretta Nano
  • Glock 26/27
  • Glock 43
  • Ruger LC9S
  • SIG SAUER P238
  • Smith & Wesson M&P Shield
  • Springfield XD-S

Although the company did not provide details, I am assuming that the new fits for the Shield will be for the 9mm and .40 S&W models. Likewise, I expect that the XD-S rigs will be for the 3.3″ models only.

The new fits are all inside the waistband rigs, with a few being tuckable models. These include the Model 6, Model 100 Professional, Model 100T Professional Tuckable, Model 135 Suppression, Model 145 Subdue and Model 155 Subversion.

Safariland

Under the Safariland brand, the company is offering new fits for a similar collection of firearms:

  • Glock 26/27
  • Glock 42
  • Glock 43
  • Ruger LC9S
  • SIG SAUER P238
  • Smith & Wesson M&P Shield
  • Springfield XD-S

While this brand will offer two new IWB fits – the Model 18 and the Model 27 – it also offers four new outside the waistband fits: the Model 578 GLS Pro-Fit, Model 7371 ALS, Model 7378 ALS and Model 5198.

(Note: Yes, I know the pictured holsters do not show the guns mentioned. However, it is all the company provided. Sorry!)

    Curious. I don’t see a lot of holster companies developing Sig P320 variants. Figured since the army chose it, that we’d see a flood of compact & subcompact variants. Really not much out there, yet.

    • Harry’s Holsters

      I currently sell more P320 compact holsters than I do Glock 19 holsters. I’ve talked to a few other holster makers who make Sig P320 holsters and they are getting unusually high sales because not a ton of companies are making them yet. I think we’ll see more options and demand when the army actually starts taking delivery.

        Yeah I think all of the light-primer-strikes and failures-to-battery might delay that a bit until Sig can unwind that riddle…we’ve sold about six 320’s (all the compact model) in the past month and two have already come back with said issues.

        I had high hopes. High apple pie in the sky-hopes….

        • Harry’s Holsters

          My gun is a sample of one but I’ve had no issues. Roughly 1k rounds through it. A friend of mine had experience with a P320 that wouldn’t fire when you pressed down on the barrel. Asked sig about it and they claimed it was normal. Mine doesn’t do that but mine also has an average trigger and is newer manufacture. I remember when these first came out people were comparing the trigger to the VP9 which is not my experience.

    Now if only they offered more holsters for CZ guns.
