US Army Selects Safariland Holster for New Sidearm
“U.S. Army weapons officials recently unveiled the holster that will be issued with the service’s new Modular Handgun System.
The Army selected a commercial holster, designed by The Safariland Group, to issue with the XM17 full-size MHS. The MHH Holster Kit, as designated by the Army includes a Safariland 7360 holster, a single strap leg shroud, the Safariland Universal Flex Adapter and Safariland’s MLS Quick Attachment System with multiple mounting options.
The holster features the ALS® locking system that can be released with the shooter’s firing hand thumb. “It comes with multiple mounting options so soldiers can tailor their load,” Army weapons officials maintain.
“The holster was available at the Defense Logistics Agency tailored logistics program and Safariland was able to meet the characteristics for MHS as well as the timeline, said Sequana Robinson, product officer at Soldier Clothing and Individual Equipment.”
