  • Safariland Raptor Holster Question

    Does this holster have a jacket slot similar to the traditional 070 holster?

    I'm looking for a holster that has a jacket slot so the weapon rides away from my body an inch or so.

    None of the photos on Safarilands website have a good image.

    With the standard belt attachment it does. If you go to the "1" series belt attachment (the model number would end in 1) it becomes a high ride and loses the jacket slot. If you go to the 1.5" or 2" drop (the model number ends in 5) it will also have a jacket slot.

    So, yes in its standard form, the Raptor does have a jacket slot.
    Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

      Thank you!

      You don't happen to have a photo of the holster at an angle to see this would you? All the photos I see are straight on and I would like to see it at an angle.

        I'm sorry, I might've misinterpreted...

        but

        There is a high ride adapter for the Raptor? I have searched high and low for the answer to this question with no luck, including e-mailing Safariland reps.

        The standard "mid-ride" is not high enough for my liking.

          Yup there is. It will fit any Safariland holster that uses the UBL. I know the 6280 (standard height) can also become the 6285(1.5" or 2" drop) or the 6281(high ride). I believe the belt attachment is made to make these holsters into "concealable" holsters. However, anyone who's ever handled one knows you can't conceal it under anything but a parka. The "concealable" belt loop is made to fit 2" or 2.25" duty belts also. This allows the holster to function quite effectively as a high ride. I've personally seen it done with a 6281 and a SSIII 070, not yet with a Raptor (only a couple pics), but it will work.
