Duty-Rated Level 2 Compact Holsters Available for Colt 1911 and Springfield XD

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – August 6, 2020 – Blackhawk™, a leader in law enforcement, military and shooting sports for over 25 years, announced today that it has expanded its popular line of T-Series holsters with the introduction of the Level 2 Compact (L2C) models specifically engineered to accommodate Colt 1911 and Springfield XD pistols.

The new dual-injected molded holsters are available in a right-hand configuration. Like previously introduced Blackhawk models, the L2C holster is designed to provide users a compact holster with level 2 retention. Each holster model is standard with a new speed cut to help with a faster draw and features a low-profile design for ease of concealment. The L2C holster is also RDS-compatible, giving users the ability to add a red dot to their carry firearm.

Blackhawk L2C holsters are duty-rated and come standard with an all-new Quick Dual Release (QDR) attachment method. Using an intuitive button release, the QDR allows the holster to be easily added and removed from a belt without weaving it through traditional belt loops. The QDR can easily accommodate belts ranging from 1.5 to 2.25 inches. In addition to the QDR attachment, all T-Series L2C holsters come standard with a 2-slot belt loop. The 2-slot belt loop has an asymmetrical design that tucks the grip of the handgun towards the body for improvement in concealment.

As the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster, each T-Series holster is standard with 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.

Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.
