    I've owned this holster for about 5 years & without fail, through Colorado winters (Patrol on days & graves), this holster has stood up!!! I finally replaced it due to starting with a new agency; the plastic does show signs of scaring getting in & out of my car, but not any more / less than the 5 years I used a Safariland 070. Clean / crisp breaks on the draw (only works if you PRACTICE), and have felt comfortable going hands on that my gun is secure. I'll be back in 5 years for a new one, but the old will serve as my range holster until then!

    Great duty holster! Weapon comes out clean and seems to be pretty sturdy. Only reason not a 5 star is have not had it long and seeing how durable it will be.

    Great Duty Holster
    June 7, 2015
    Great Duty holster!!! The price is very good, I have done a lot of research on this holster and done numerous dry firing with this holster. BlackHawk did a great job on this holster keeping safety in mind for officers using it.
    Not able to use on my Springfield XD .40 tactical model W/ light attach. Blackhawk need to make one for the XD with light.

    Blackhawk Level 3 Holster
    April 1, 2015
    Great holster that combines safety without diminishing speed of draw. I added a mid ride attachment and it is much more comfortable while sitting and driving.
    durable and sturdy construction, no added motions to learn just a nice smooth release which maintains speed on the draw.

    I replaced a Safariland 070 III with this holster after attending a firearms instructor course. I am very pleased with this holster. I originally ordered it as a low ride and purchased a separate attachment to make it mid ride after a few days of wear. I like it much better as a mid ride. The hood release is very simple to use and requires no new motions. Just preform a natural draw and the hood releases.
    Comfortable and well built

    This holster upholds the Blackhawk reputation with its overall durability, style, and function. It is light weight compared to some of the other holsters I have seen, and the retention mechanisms are solid. I very very safe, and am convinced my duty weapon is secure while using this holster.
    Very Durable Updated Style Perfect Functionality

    My department issued us a holster that I have never trained with or cared for. I bought this on my own and will never use another type of holster! Definitely the fastest and safest draw!
    Fast, natural draw

    A busted rig
    February 4, 2015
    I have used black hawk along with other name brand holsters and never had a problem this one broke after the first shooting drill! I was really upset and had to switch rigs at a department marksmen event. Customer service was awesome and I'm hoping it was just a factory bust so I will exchange it for a new one and see . I gave it two stars and that's just for customer service
    If you a Serpa shooter it is what it is
    Broke at a crucial moment

    While I just received this holster a few weeks ago, I am impressed on how will it works and how will it keeps the retention on my Springfield XD. I feel like there is even less of a chance of a criminal getting a hold of my weapon. Great product.

    Nice stable holster. I bought a different belt attachment for this as the one it came with did not fit around my basketweave belt.

    Looks solid as any other Blackhawk product I've bought!
    December 27, 2014
    Bought this at my son's request, he is also an officer in a neighboring jurisdiction. I have been using a Blackhawk Serpa holster with my Kimber TLE-II for several years and it has been fault free. When this one got in I played with it for a while before packing it up for Christmas. Every part appears well thought out, executed, and constructed. I can see this last my son many years of hard patrol use. He came by on Christmas morning (working) and said he loves it. Nice to see it already working at his side. I spent my first 17 years of police life seeing the world through a patrol car windshield and it gave me a keen appreciation of good gear. This certainly looks to be in that category. Living near the Gulf of Mexico, the materials are a good fit for the tough environment here.
    Solid construction, good looks, excellent function in use.
    None that I have experienced.

    Can a Blackhawk Paddle be attached to the Serpa L3 holster. I want to wear under shirt, on hip, for concealment purposes. Thank you in advance.

    What is the difference between the Matte and the Plain Black finish? Is one or the other pictured above?
    on May 2, 2013

    To see the difference between Plain and Matte you will have to look at the Basketweave holster shown in the second picture. The part that is Backetweave will have a plain piece of leather on the "Plain" finish version and the "Matte" version will just be plastic as shown in the first picture.

    Do you make a level 3 for a glock 30

    Do you have a level 3 that will fit a Ruger SR9?

    Will this or do you have a Blackhawk hoster work for a glock 35 with a rail attached light?
    on November 26, 2012

    This Serpa Holster cannot fit a Glock with a weapon light, you will need to search out site for BPG-44H5, that will bring up the Level 3 Serpa Holster that will hold a Glock with a weapon light. We have seen a video that shows a Glock 35 fitting into the holster made for the Glock 17/22 (Model 44H500). However, this holster will only accommodate a Blackhawk Xiphos Weapon Light.

    Will this holster fit a sig 2022?
    on January 2, 2013

    Blackhawk does not make this holster for a Sig Sauer 2022.
