HISTORY AND BACKROUND:
Safariland has been around for more than 45 years, and has made some of the best and most innovative products for the law enforcement, competitive shooting and military industries. Neale Perkins launched a holster business from his garage in Sierra Madre, California in 1964. The company became named after the African safaris he and his father did together. Since then, Safariland quickly went from making a few holsters to more than 5,000 within a few months. (All information above was taken from Safariland’s website directly)ORDERING:
Ordering the Safariland was as simple and easy as any other airsoft product thus far. You are asked to fill out some questions, such as address, email, credit card information, and a coupon code (may vary).SHIPPPING AND DELIVERY:
As far as shipping goes, the options are up to you. It can change from Next Day Air (one day delivery), to Ground (five to seven business days delivery). After you open the box and having a field day with the bubble wrap and shipping peanuts, you should fine it in a Safariland clear bag (made of thick plastic). MATERIALS:
The holster is made from a heavy duty plastic. Safariland calls this their “Thermal-molded SAFARILAMINATE” construction, which is excellent at protecting the weapons sights.BODY AND FUNCTIONS:
The Safariland 6004 holster is built for comfort as well as functionality. The holster features a Self Locking System (SLS) rotating system which is excellent for tactical situations encountered today. The hood on the 6004 holster can only be released by being simultaneously pushed down and rotated forward and actually becomes more secure when upward force is applied. The STX Tactical finish of the holster is rugged, protecting the gun in scrape, scratch and dent incidents. Molded sight track and soft material inside the holster, which Safariland calls “SafariSuede,” protects the gun’s sights and finish. A special feature of the 6004 holster is the double leg strap and the leg shroud. These two features combined equal comfort and stability in the holster position on the leg. Another awesome feature is the adjustable tension. This allows the user to adjust the tension in the holster, against the weapon. This way, it is not wobbling around inside the holster, it is nice and secure.PROS:
• Sturdy/ has much stability
• Made of excellent material
• Interior padding to keep your weapon from scratching
• Adjustable tension to keep your weapon secure
• Looks awesomeCONS:
• Personally, I found that it is not as easy draw your weapon from this holster as fast as a Serpa tactical holster. The reason for this is because; to draw the weapon you have to use your thumb and push down and forward, as appose to the Serpa where you only need to push down with your finger to release tension. Again, this is a Con for me personally and nothing to do with the manufacture.
• That’s it!PRICE AND RETAILERS:
The Safariland 6004 holster is available at the following locations:
The price new from these great retailers can range anywhere from $117 to $150. The price change is determined on which weapon type is made to fit.CONCLUSION:
I give this product nine out of ten. The reason for this is because of the build, comfort, and durability. I did not give this a ten out of ten is because it is not as “High Speed” as a Serpa holster. Once again, this is only a personal preference.
In conclusion, I am extremely pleased with the holster. Safariland continues to make outstanding equipment for personal/recreational, law enforcement, and military equipment. This is an outstanding product, and will last you many uses to come. You go Safariland!
