The Safariland Model 6378 is a concealment version of the new Automatic Locking System (ALS) series holsters. The 6378 utilizes the SLS as the primary security system with the Hood Guard installed, and includes an internal locking device (ALS).

Once the weapon is holstered, it "locks" into place, providing an extra measure of security from standard open top holsters. A simple straight up draw is possible once the ALS is de-activated by your thumb while obtaining a shooting grip. The addition of the Hood Guard gives the holster added protection to the SLS. IDPA approved.

The Model 6378 features an all-new injection molded paddle design that is highly concealable and rides close to body with a slightly forward weapon cant. It also comes standard with the 567BL belt loop to fit 1.5" and 1.75" belt slots.

Additionally, it features suede lining to help protect the gun's sights and finish, and its SAFARI-LAMINATE structure wraparound design provides the strongest design combination available.

Good holster
Initially when I place my order for this holster it was backordered for quite a while once it came in and serve my purpose exactly how I needed it. The retention is great, the thumb release feels natural and it carries very close to the body.

Safariland 6378 paddle holster for Glock 19
The holster seems to be exactly as advertised, much more comfortable than the Serpa it replaced. Very positive latching, easy release required only a few cycles to feel comfortable. It is also considerably easier to wrangle on & off my pants than the Serpa, which fought me every time. I do agree with some other reviewers who think the paddle is too large but then I am a small person, small bone structure and I will probably wind up trimming the paddle to fit me better.

Safariland 6378
Great quality as to be expected from Safariland. And this was a little more expensive but other sites did not clearly list product so safe bet was LA Police gear!
ProsGood solid quality Finish of holster is great
ConsPaddle mount is beyond huge! I am 5ft 5 and about 160 to 170lbs. This paddle wraps all the way around my hip and back into the hip bone in the front. Not sure why they had to make it this large. If you are of smaller build you may want to consider another attachment method.

First off, I would definitely recommend the paddle holster as it is super comfortable and easy as pie to slip on and off pretty much any belt rig. Firm locking system with easy button release and still has good friction retention. Great product!!

Just received my 6378 for my S&W .40 Shield, weapon goes into the holster fine the problem is that it will not secure. I can pull the weapon out without any retention. If I turn the holster upside down the weapon falls right out. Can you please advise if I'm doing something wrong. I have read the directions several times and there is nothing that address this problem. Thank you
3 Answers
I have purchased several of these holsters as have many members of my department. None of us have had any issues like you are having. I would suggest returning the product and having it replaced. These holsters are very high quality and I believe you will agree when you get your new one.
on October 4, 2016
from Boston, Massachusetts
First let me say I am very pleased with the 6378 Safariland holster. Although the directions leave much do be desired, it just takes a few minutes to figure it out. Although I changed the paddle for the tilted belt loop as I intend to use it at the range, I had no problem with the retention device. Since my S&W M&P 9mm Shield fit perfectly out of the package with no adjustments, it appears Safariland pre-adjusted the holsters for the 9 instead of the 40. If a simple slight loosening of the adjustment screw doesn't bring that audible click when you holster your weapon, there may be a problem. Until I hit the thumb release it would take a great deal of force to draw the pistol from the holster. I'm guessing your 40 just doesn't go in quite far enough to engage the retention device. A half a turn or so with a screwdriver should resolve it.
on October 4, 2016
from Rock Hill, SC
Ok I would suggest to check and may sure that the holster is the proper one by ensuring that the model number for the holster is correct. You can do that on safarilands website. Next I'd look to see if the ALS system in the holster is working properly. It could very well be a defect from the factory.

Inasmuch as the difference in barrel length for the FNS 40c vs the FNS 40 is nominally .2 inches, will this holster secure the FNS 40c as well as the FNS 40? My department issues the FNS 40LS and authorizes the FNS 40c as a secondary weapon for use in plainclothes assignments. Our issued holster is an ALS design and the only holster specifically designed for the 40c has a GLS system. It is authorized and easy to use, but if possible I would like the exact same system as my issued rig.

But, I am looking for 6378-447-412: Sig P229R Dak w/bobbed hammer – STX Plain - Right (as in right handed). Do you anticipate having this holster available for right handed people?
1 Answers
We most likely can have that added, what you would want to do is email that information to and they will see about having the model you need added. I would have done it myself, but i'm unable to pull up the correct model on their site, i would need the caliber. It's asking for whether it's a 357, 40, or 9x9 parabellum and I have no clue and don't want to have the wrong model # added. So email them with the information you provided and they'll most likely get it added to the site or available to order within 1-2 weeks.

Do you have these available for a SIG 229R DAK for a righty? I only see left as an option.
1 Answers
It might be that we do not have the right handed one added to the site just yet. I don't have enough information just yet to go by to ensure that i have to correct model to add to the site. Their website is asking what the Caliber is and I would need to know the holster finish you would want for that as well. But what you can do instead is utilize their holster finder and see if the model # that it provides you with is the same for one we already have added - If you see that the model you need is available but doesn't match any that we have on our site, email us at and we will see if we can get that added for you. Sometimes they have models that fit multiple weapons, so we may just have it under a different weapon. I would have done all of that for you, but i just didn't have enough information to go by.

Does this holster, model 6378-477-411 fit the Sig Sauer P226R. I have read that this holster does not fit a rail gun.
1 Answers
I show on Safariland's site that it is on the fit chart for this weapon. A good way to check is to go to Safariland's holster finder and plug in your weapon specs. That should pull up all holsters that will fit your weapon, including this one and it allows you to pick what model weapon and caliber so it will give you the exact model # you would need. It's just a matter of cross referencing with what we have listed to ensure that you receive the correct model. Here's a link to their holster finder - I hope that helps!
