BLACKHAWK! is continuing their tradition of manufacturing innovative holsters with the new EPOCH Level 3 Light Bearing Duty Holster for a number of Glock and Smith & Wesson M&P pistol models.

Complete with a thumb-activated release for single-phase operation, this brand new holster is capable of accommodating several under-barrel pistol lights, including the Streamlight TLR-1 and TLR-2, the SureFire X300 and X300 Ultra. According to the press release, the holster’s patent-pending retention system features a thumb-activated Auto Lock and Pivot Guard, along with a passive retention detent screw. The holster engages the ejection port when holster and does not let go until released. In addition, the Pivot Guard is open for one-handed re-holstering and prevents the end user from being locked out of the holster.

The BLACKHAWK! EPOCH Level 3 Light Bearing Duty Holster boasts a polymer construction. It is compatible with the Glock 17, 20, 21, 22, 31, 37 and S&W M&P 9/40. The manufacturer suggested retail price is $124.99. See below for additional details.
