  • Anyone here have Blackhawk SERPA holster?

    I want to get this one but i'm not sure if it'll fit the standard 2.25" belt as this is made for off-duty/conceal carry/standard belt size.

    Not sure about fitting the belt, but it is an awesome holster. The safety/retention factor is incredible. It's the only holster I let our officers carry on-duty.

      It will fit a 2.25" belt. There are 2 sliders on the back of the holster where your belt goes through. You may have to remove them to allow for proper fit. It wil just take a phillips head screw driver. It's a great holster. I use it anytime I'm in plain clothes (which is extremely rare) but hey I love the holster.

            You're looking at the wrong SERPA holster. It's a whole line of holsters that use the SERPA lock.

            The one you linked to is a off-duty model. It will not fit your belt.

            Any of these will fit your belt:

            There's a level 3 w/ a tactical light mount too, but I'm too lazy to look for it.

            Not all models come in all finishes, so if you need a certain one you might be limited as to which one you can use.


            Oh yeah, I have the regular level 3 in basketweave and it's the best holster I've ever used. I'd recommend it.

              I have the same holster but I don't use it on my belt. I have the paddle attachment for the holster and I find that it keeps it closer to my body and the holster doesn't have as much "give" making it easier to draw from the holster.

                If your asking about a duty belt. No that holster won't fit. I twill fit a 2 inch normal or web belt. I carry mine with the belt slides in on a 1.75 inch web belt.

                    Like Hobbsie said, it DOES fit the 2.25" duty type belt. I've been using mine for a couple of years.

                    You do have to remove the little slide adjustment thingys first. It gives a very snug fit on the belt. Doesn't slide around or move at all.

                    By adjusting it to a forward cant (grip to the rear), it gives you a super fast draw with just a little practice. You come out of the holster with a proper firing grip as opposed to a rear cant where you draw with a "bent wrist" and have to adjust.

                    Several other deputies bought one after they saw mine.

                    BTW, did I mention that I love my CQC?

                      thanks, that's what i wanted to know. what type of duty belt do you have because the I have the nylon one and it's slightly bigger than the regular 2.25 basketweave.

                        We wear the standard Safariland leather basketweave belt. Just for sh*ts and giggles, I measured mine a few minutes ago to confirm, and it is the 2.25 inch width. Don't know about the nylon belt width. Like I said, sliding the CQC onto my belt, it is a snug fit, but that keeps it from moving even the slightest bit.

                        Good luck with it. I think you'll like it if you can make it fit the belt.

                          I have a Safariland fake-leather basketweave belt with velcro on the back. I guess I've always assumed that my off duty SERPA would not fit on my belt (I've always used the low ride duty version on my belt).

                          On a whim, I also just tried to fit my off-duty SERPA onto my belt, it's REALLY tight, but maybe with pliers I could pull the belt through it. Just don't ever re-arrange your belt!

                          Just out of curiousity, why are you attempting to fit the non-duty SERPA onto your duty belt? Does it have a big advantage over the duty SERPA holsters? I have three SERPA holsters, including one I use every day for duty, but I guess I just don't get it with regards to the duty belt.

                            You are absolutely correct. It is a tight fit. But it does fit.

                            If memory serves me correctly, I believe the duty version may have still been on Blackhawk's drawing board when I bought my CQC. I don't recall that the duty models were available at the time. Could be wrong, but that's the way I remember it.

                            I tried it on my duty belt on a whim, and after I figured out that it fit, I liked it enough to leave it on. Been wearing it ever since.

                            I originally bought it as an off-duty holster for my Para, but now I've ordered another Serpa for off-duty, since it's too darn much trouble to keep taking it off/putting it on (my duty belt).

                            I had tried the Fobus and Uncle Mike's Kydex holsters previously. Was definitely NOT impressed with the Fobus, and didn't feel the Uncle Mike's was secure enough.

                            That's about it in a nutshell.

                              I have one and love it. But just so you know, it will stick out a lot from your body, almost as much as a duty rig. So if your intention is to use it off duty, keep this in mind.
