Bought the holster for duty. As usual, no gripes with the item or its function. It did not come with the belt attachment however, but LAPG is working on that. Good customer service as usual.
ProsAll good.

Great holster. We've used them for quite a few years now, and don't see us switching anytime soon. Very durable and secure, yet easy to draw from. Would always recommend Safariland to anyone.

Safariland 6280, good to go.
Got a great holster at a good price, I used this after my old holster failed to hold my pistol in during some ground work shooting training, I dropped the drop leg and mounted on a battle belt, and learned the release system, for me it was a great holster and worked well, I recommend this to anyone wanting a positive retention of their weapon.
Prosgood retention with a simple release system

Safariland 6280-74321-81 for beretta 92fs w/TRG tick mount and TLR-1HL
I bought the Safariland 6280-74321-81 for my beretta 92fs w/ "TRG tick" light mount and streamlight TLR-1HL pistol light. Holster did not work for this setup. I also tried it with the Surefire Mr-11 light mount and also did not fit in holster. I have checked out 6 places looking for a holster that will work for my setup and everyone keeps saying is this holster. It does not work!! gun will not go in and if you force it gets very difficult to remove. I called safariland and they tell me they have nothing that will fit my set up! I am frustrated! This holster looks awesome and built great! wish it would've worked for me!
ProsLooks great! great functionality and very tough!
Consdid not work for the beretta 92fs with streamlight even though it says it does!

Stands up to extreme duty with no issues!
I've used this holster in the G17 w/M3 light configuration for about 8 years now. Shortly after I purchased the duty holster I was moved into a Narcotics Detective position, so I contacted Safariland about getting the platform to turn this into a drop leg holster. Then about 4 years later I moved into a supervisory position in Patrol, turning the holster platform back into a belt rig. Within a few months I had a drunk try to rip my holster off my belt. Even with the plastic being 8 years old at the time, and subjected to some pretty extreme duty, this fat bastard was only successful at pissing me off and cracking the loop along the belt path. With an 8 year old holster I call Safariland and asked about ordering another belt loop, but was told they would take care of it. That is top notch customer service in my book, and their willingness to send replacement parts on an 8 year old holster that has been beat up on many occasions is a true testament to the Safariland name... As a cop, and competitive shooter I have used many high end holsters from Blade-tech, Galco, ect, ect..., but none hold up to the quality and form factor of Safariland, who by far has the best customer service department of the various companies I've used. Save yourself the money in the long run, looking for a holster to fit your philosophy of use, and just get one from Safariland. You won't be disappointed!

You have to get the option that specifically says it's for a Streamlight weapon light. A Streamlight weapon light is wider than the Surefire weapon light so it won't fit in a Surefire model holster. On the flip side a Surefire will fit in a Streamlight model holster.

Good holster BUT you have to confirm that the holster fits the specific make and model weapon and light that you are using it for. Safariland does not do a good job in explaining the differences and style numbers for the various makes and models. I am using a Sig Sauer P226r with Streamlight TLR-1 and it does fit. The specific model that I am using is 6280-7721-131. I hope this helps.

Sometimes the models will fit multiple lights or weapon models, so we try to post what's most popular, but if Safariland shows that the model we have listed will fit your weapon and light, than you should be good to select that one even if it doesn't mention the X300 on our listing.

Customer Service

Safariland is missing out on an entire demographic with the popularity of the Glock 19 Gen4 and the TLR-4 light/laser combo. G19 owners looking for the thumb retention (not necessarily the hood or lever as in the 6280) are turning their wallets towards small time, fly-by-night kydex slingers. While kydex holsters are great, most manufacturers are a single person, not a corporation with an extended reputation. Additionally, police departments are beginning to reduce their .40 inventory in favor of 9mm. (Check FBI statistics) I enjoy the 6378 ALS - It makes sense. With the addition of the TLR-4 light, I can't use my 6378 ALS anymore. I would like to upgrade to a pair of holsters like this WITH the TLR-4 option. Keep me posted, please.

Under the drop down menu we do show your weapon listed for fitment and it will fit your weapon just fine with the correct weapon light attached.

Is there a holster model that fits the Glock 22 w/the TLR-1 that isn't +$40? I don't want the STX finish.

unfortunately since all the other finishes incorporate a premium finish onto the the holster they do have an up charge of 40 dollars which the manufacture charges more for. STX tac would be the only finish that safariland does not charge extra for.
