The Safariland Model 6280 SLS Mid-Ride Level II Retention duty holster is the base holster of the Self Locking System (SLS) holsters. This duty version features a unique rotating hood design. Since there is no snap the SLS allows for a smoother single-motion draw and greater protection against attempted weapon takeaways. The hood can only be released by being simultaneously pushed down and rotated forward, and actually becomes more secure when upward force is applied. It is also far less likely to release accidentally than conventional thumb break snaps.
The model 6280 is a top draw and straight drop cant, a style popular with major police departments and a personal choice for individual officers.
Safariland features a tensioning device on their Model 6280, which, when firmly adjusted becomes a Level III Retention holster. This model also features a molded sight track and SafariSuede lining that protects the finish on any weapon. Its wraparound construction provides the strongest design combination available. The SafariLaminate structure makes these features possible.
The rigid Safariland UBL anchors the holster and stabilizes it on your duty belt with hardened aerospace fasteners. Your holster and belt become one unit, a real advantage when executing crisp, clean draws.
Available in Plain Black, Basket Weave, or Hi-Gloss finishes.
