BLACKHAWK announced the release of a Level 2 Compact (L2C) version of their T-Series holster, originally introduced in April
BLACKHAWK – a Vista Outdoor company – has spent the past several years behind closed doors in the Bozeman, Montana facility taking attention to detail and quality engineering to an even higher level to create a new line of duty-rated holsters: the T-Series.
First introduced at the 2019 edition of the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, back in April, the BLACKHAWK T-Series holsters are available in Level 2 and Level 3 light-bearing and non-light bearing versions – some NTOA approved – and are built on a combination of reinforced outer polymer and smooth, sound-dampening, hydrophobic lining to ensure a safe use and dependable performance regardless of the elements and situation.
The latest evolution in the T-Series line is a Level 2 Compact (L2C) version that combines the durability and sturdiness of the L2D and L3D T-Series holsters with a streamlined and concealable form.
The BLACKHAWK T-Series L2C holster was built around the Company's own Master Grip Principle, meaning the holster encourages the user’s hand to naturally land exactly where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.
This efficient movement pairs with the low-friction dual-density internal material for a fast, smooth, quiet and effortless draw, while the external proprietary, glass-reinforced nylon provides the highest degree of durability.
Key points that set the T-Series L2C apart from the rest of the T-Series family are a speed cut for a faster draw – which also makes the holster compatible with optics-ready and optics-equipped pistols – and a low-profile design for ease of concealment.
Despite the smaller profile, the BLACKHAWK T-Series L2C holster is still duty rated, just like the L2D and L3D versions. The T-Series L2C comes with an all-new attachment method called the Quick Dual Release, or QDR. This attachment method features an intuitive button release that allows easy attachment to and removal from a belt without weaving it through loops. The QDR can accommodate belts ranging from 1.5 to 2.25 inches and allows the holster to cant at various angles, depending on user preference.
An included Two-Slot Belt Loop attachment method also comes standard with the L2C. The asymmetrical design of the loop attachment tucks the grip of the pistol toward the body for better concealment and less interference with daily tasks.
The BLACKHAWK T-Series L2C holster is currently available for Glock 17 and SIG Sauer P320 pistols only; other versions will surely be made available in the coming months.
