A black piece of plastic with some screws and joints. It sounds easy, but getting a holster right, isn’t.
Blackhawk have been in R&D for several years and now their new T-Series is available for the market, with more and more models and compatibility being added.
I bet it took a few rounds in the 3D printing machine with all the different versions that are needed to fulfill even the basic needs of the market, with all the different models and configurations.
From the Press Release:
BLACKHAWK™ Releases Next Evolution of Master Grip Principle Holsters: The T-SERIES™
VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – April 2019 – BLACKHAWK™ products are relied on and revered by top tier law enforcement and military personnel around the world.
BLACKHAWK has spent the past several years, behind closed doors in their Bozeman, Montana facility, taking their attention to detail and quality engineering to an even higher level to create the ultimate line of duty-rated holsters – the T-Series™.
The T-Series is the next evolution of BLACKHAWK’s Master Grip Principle. The Master Grip Principle provides a critical benefit for end users because it compliments intuition; the user will never have to re-learn how to use their equipment.
As the user naturally reaches down to draw on the holster their hand lands exactly where it should to deploy their side arm. With its streamlined thumb-activated retention, the T-Series keeps your firearm at the ready while maintaining total security.
The low-friction, dual-density internal material makes for a smooth and effortless draw while the exterior provides high-durability with a proprietary glass reinforced nylon and soft touch polymer liner. This durable material provides protection with a sleek design for minimal bulk.
Available in Level 2 or Level 3 configurations, there’s a fit for any need. This new line of holsters is just the beginning of the anticipated innovations to come out of BLACKHAWK this year; there are plans to release compact, light-bearing, and RMR compatible versions of the T-Series.
This and many other BLACKHAWK products are proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.

There are versions available for Glock (Glock 17/19/22/23/34/35), and more being developed. The holsters for SIG Sauer will also be available later in 2019. They are currently only available in black.
The prices range from $129,95 to $149,95.
