Alien Gear Launches the Rapid Force Duty Holster at SHOT SHOW 2020


At this year’s Shot Show, Alien Gear introduced The Rapid Force Duty Holster, and in true Alien fashion they’ve thought of just about everything.

For starters, the new holster features what I’ll describe as an uncomplicated but very effective retention system. The Rapid Force Duty Holster is available in a Level II and Level III configuration. Alien Gear describes their patented retention system as the GMR or Gross Motor Response retention system. The GMR system also supports pistol mounted red dot sights.


Level II retention comes from a locking backstrap, actuated by a push-button thumb release. Level III retention is added in the form of an ejection port locking wedge.

The holster is belt attached and supports a duty belt of up to three inches wide. Three belt mounts are available: Low, Standard, or High.

The Rapid Force Duty holster is available for  your pistol with or without a rail mounted light. Unique to the holster is the fact that the pistol can be holster even if you remove the light.

The holster is injection molded using a high-strength polymer blend, and available in a smooth or basket weave finish.

The price is also something you’ll love. Depending on how you configure it, you’re looking at $115 – $144, compare that to competing duty holsters which run upwards of $240.

Supported Platforms Include: Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 22, Glock 23, SIG SAUR P320 (9mm and 40 S&W), S&W M&P 9 (9mm), S&W M&P 40, SIG SAUER  P226 (9mm & 40 S&W)

All of the models listed are in production with different rollout schedules.

Another very impressive offering from the Alien!
