With the tremendous popularity of SIG Sauer’s P320 and its adoption by a host of law enforcement agencies and military units, as well as plenty of civilians, the ever-growing demand for weaponlight and light-bearing holster support only makes sense. One popular light option for these handguns is Streamlight’s TLR-7/8 series. These lights provide a compact form factor, a menu of side and high or low rear switch options, and the availability of either red or green visible laser-equipped models in addition to the light-only versions. Now with a July 24th press release, Blackhawk has announced an expansion of their holster line to provide P320 and TLR-7/8 users with new Level 2 and Level 3 Duty options. The release reads:
VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia –– Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, announced today that it has added new T-Series Level 2 and Level 3 Duty holsters compatible with the TLR 7/8 pistol light for the SIG SAUER P320.
The Level 2 Duty (L2D) and Level 3 Duty (L3D) Light Bearing holsters are available in the right-handed configuration and provide SIG P320 owners with additional options when searching for the right carry platform. For those seeking an added level of security, the L3D holster features a hood across the back of the firearm for extra retention. Each holster comes standard with Blackhawk’s Jacket Slot Belt Loop.
As the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster, each model features a soft touch inner layer that is both super slick and sound-dampening. This durable and efficient, low-friction design translates into a smooth, quiet draw or re-holstering of the sidearm. Externally, the T-Series holster features a proprietary, glass-reinforced nylon to ensure the highest degree of durability available in a duty rated holster.
The new holsters are designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, allowing the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.
