    Review: Awesome holster

    This holster is very nice. It really makes me want to buy more Blackhawk products and love the Lapolicegear web site.
    Firearm fits really good and holster works perfectly.

    Most for money

    Having always carried concealed in my prior job, I was unsure if a level 3 holster would be significantly difficult to get used to vs a level 1. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of drawing from this level 3. I would definitely recommend it to anyone transitioning, especially if you've use a Serpa holster is the past.

    Level III Serpa Holster for Duty
    June 2, 2016
    I carry a Sig P226 MK25 for duty. Trying to find a holster that fits due to the rails was not easy. This fits like a glove.
    The fit. I am kind of biased though, I have loved Blackhawk holster since my active duty days.
    I sometimes miss the second lock release with my trigger finger. Not really a design flaw, moreso practice.

    Great holster
    March 14, 2016
    I have been carrying this same model holster with different pistols for the last seven or eight years. Great holster at a reasonable price.
    Great security but, easily accessible when I need it.
    I have had three of these holsters for different pistols over the last few years .With daily use they all have the same problem. The Phillips head screws on the back of the holster tend to back out. I have to tighten them up every couple of weeks. If this was corrected I would give it 5 stars.

    This is my first 'open-carry' holster that I've used and I absolutely love it. However, this holster + jacket slot belt (low ride) attachment may not work for everyone - it depends on the person and usage. If you have long arms and/or wear a tactical vest, then this low-ride (jacket slot) is a must-buy in my opinion. The lower ride height allows me to wear a tactical vest and be able to draw quickly and comfortably, without snagging the firearm on my vest or molle attachments. I see others wearing a vest + mid-ride holster and they have a difficult time drawing their sidearm b/c the vest gets in the way (or their long arms make it awkward to draw at such a position). Some dislike the "level III" safety on this holster (it's another safety that the thumb must depress which opens a hard plastic flap covering the hammer), but I have no issue with it. In fact, just 10 minutes of practice with this holster and I was able to draw quickly with and without a tactical vest. Also, this thumb safety gives greater protection against accidental firearm release (or release during a struggle); plus, the cover over the hammer helps to keep dirt/grass/mud/etc. out of your internal parts if you have to crawl. I would not use this level III holster with a high or mid-ride belt attachment b/c the flap covering the hammer may prevent a quick/easy draw. With the few limitations in mind, I would recommend this to anyone.
    Good fit Well made / Sturdy Performs well - Fast draw Good safety Great for use with tactical vest
    Level III retention holster might not work well with a mid or high ride attachment due to flap over hammer.

    Excellent Customer Service
    February 20, 2016
    Exactly what I needed for On Duty. Arrived right on time and works perfectly, nice looking too. Glad our staff had us upgrade to Level 3, I feel that my weapon is more secure but just as easy to draw when needed. I have gotten several positive comments about this Holster for my Glock 21. Thank you for the prompt delivery and nice product !
    Secures weapon better than Level 2. Looks Awesome on my Duty Belt.

    Best Damn Duty Holster... Period!
    December 15, 2015
    I used to use a Safariland 070 holster (Still a great holster!) but had the Serpa off duty holster & loved it! I saw this holster & decided to try it & haven't looked back! Once you get the "muscle memory " down with a few hundred draws to disengage the retention of you weapon, this is a really fast & clean holster to draw from. I replaced it 5 years later; no reason other than wanting to insure functionality- my old holster is on my range rig & still functions flawlessly! Don't pass this holster up!!!

    Nice, light weight and affordable. Great duty holster. Level III protection for less than some level II. Easy draw without compromising safety.
    Light weight Easy draw

    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

    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?

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