    SIG Sauer Now Offering Safariland M17 Holster As Used By US Military

    SIG Sauer have announced that they’re now offering, alongside the guns themselves, the Safariland M17 Holster which was selected to holster the M17 and M18 Modular Handgun System. The ideal pairing if you picked up one of the original surplus pistols or one of the M17/P320 models. MSRP is $349.99.

    Back in 2017, the US Army unveiled a variant of Safariland’s 7TS as the MHS’s holster with ADS contracted to supply them. While Safariland offer several comparable holsters, including the Model 7304-SP10 7TS™ ALS/SLS® SINGLE STRAP TACTICAL HOLSTER, which are close to the US Army MHS holsters, SIG are offering a Belt and Leg Military Holster Kit that allows users, just like service personnel issued the M17 or M18, to configure the pistol either as a drop leg or on the hip.

    Here’s what SIG have to say about the holsters:

    Now you can own the holster kit officially selected by the U.S. Army for the M17 modular pistol: The M17 Belt and Leg Military Holster Kit from Safariland.
    This kit allows the user to have one holster with two different ways to deploy it.
    Configure it as a drop-leg holster with the thigh-mounted attachment:

    Or configure it as a belt-mounted holster while keeping the pistol from interfering with any chest gear:

    Made of SafariSeven™ construction, a proprietary nylon blend completely non-abrasive to the firearm’s finish with very high heat and low cold tolerances; structurally sound from 300F to -50F.

    Compatible with M17 or non-X model P320 full-size pistols.
