Safariland’s active retention outside-the-waistband holsters have been a staple for us at T.REX for a long time. The 6354RDS is a Level I retention holster with a very intuitive release mechanism that allows your draw to remain smooth, fast, and uncomplicated. The ALS (Automatic Locking System) latches onto the ejection port when the handgun is holstered, keeping it firmly in the holster during activity. It is compatible with most red dot sights and comes with a hood to keep mud, rain, etc., off the optic. The hood flips out of the way during draw, but it can also be removed entirely according to individual preference. All models we carry are compatible with SureFire X300 or smaller weapon lights.

These holsters fit multiple lights, will they fit multiple guns? For example, can I put a CZ in a Glock holster?
While these holsters are not super picky when it comes to weaponlights, they are very much model specific. CZs wont work in Glock holsters, Glocks won’t work in SIG holsters, so on and so forth. If you don’t see your handgun listed in the drop-down menu we don’t offer a model for that specific setup.
Will shorter pistols fit into longer holsters? For example, will a Glock 19 work with a Glock 17 Safariland?
Shorter guns will work in longer Safariland holsters. However, the muzzle plug will be too short, so the gun will be able to move up and down in the holster. You can fix this by using the proper OT Defense Multi Muzzle Plug to fix the gap left by the stock muzzle plug that was made for longer pistols.
Will threaded barrels work in Safariland holsters?
Long story short, Yes. You’ll want to order a size up if you have a threaded barrel though, so if you have a 17 with a threaded barrel, you’ll want the Glock 34 model. So on and so forth. You can also use the OT Defense Threaded Barrel Plug if desired
