ONTARIO, California - Safariland® announced Tuesday the release of their new Range Series products which includes the Model 5195 Range Series Open Top Low Ride Holster, Model 332 Range Series Belt and the newly updated Model 5197 Open Top Mid Ride Holster. These models were designed specifically for typical rugged use on the range, with competition shooters, range instructors and shooting enthusiasts in mind.
"With the growing number of shooting enthusiasts practicing at the range and trying their hand at competitive events, Safariland recognized that it was necessary to expand its product offering to meet the individual needs of these shooters," stated James Dawson, Category Director for the Safariland brand.
The Model 332 Range Series Belt, the foundation for these holster models, is constructed of a polymer laminate which is covered by a Cordura® nylon wrap making it sturdy and durable. Reinforced to hold the weight of competition holsters and ammunition, the belt also features a non-slip material on the interior which keeps accessories from sliding. The Model 332 can quickly and easily be removed and is available in 1.5" (38 mm) belt width.
The new Model 5195 Range Series Low Ride Holster is designed specifically with female users in mind. The belt loop is offset from the holster to allow for a smooth straight up draw on shooters whose hips are larger than their waists. The Model 5195 also features a modular offset adaptor to accommodate other Safariland belt accessories such as the QLS19 Locking Fork, the 745BL belt clip or the 567BL injection molded belt loop.
The Model 5197, a popular concealment holster model, has been updated and now features a new belt loop that is user-adjustable for cant while eliminating common belt-bulging. This belt loop includes fits for 1.5" (38 mm), 1.75" (45 mm), 2" (50 mm) and 2.25" (58 mm) belt widths.
Featuring SafariLaminate™ thermal-molded construction, both holster models feature low cut sides, are compact and lightweight and feature a detent in the trigger guard. This feature provides added security as the detent is thermal-formed into the holster's walls and increases its retention, whether during a match or while carrying concealed. A simple straight-up draw defeats the friction detent and the gun is ready to be used. To re-holster, the gun is effortlessly pressed downward into the holster until a distinctive click is felt. Both the Model 5195 and 5197 are IDPA approved.
All models in the Range Series are available in Black, OD Green and FDE Brown and are available now. MSRP as follows:
