ONTARIO, CA – Safariland® is excited to announce the debut of the Model 578 GLS™ Pro-Fit™ Holster, bringing its unique GLS (Grip Locking System) to fit a wide variety of guns with a single holster.
Designed to fit more than 60 firearms based on barrel length and be customizable for a perfect fit, the 578 GLS Pro-Fit features an innovative technology that automatically secures the weapon when holstered and releases it upon application of the middle finger with a standard shooting grip for a more intuitive and safer release. It’s the only holster on the market that can fit a wide variety of handguns with a secure and easy-to-use GLS lock up.
“Building on the recent success of the GLS and 7TS™ holster lines, Safariland continues to innovate by combining these two unique features in the 578,” said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment Category. “As a multi-fit holster, it’s available to a wide variety of our users, making this revolutionary safety-enhancing technology more accessible than ever.”
The 578 Pro-Fit holster body is constructed with SafariSeven™ material featured in the 7TS line of holsters. This lightweight, state-of-the-art nylon blend is completely non-abrasive to a gun’s finish, tolerant of extreme high and low temperatures, and easy to maintain.
The low-cut and compact 578 Pro-Fit holster rides close to the user’s body for concealment while still providing easy access for a quick draw. The holster includes an injection-molded paddle and an injection-molded belt loop that is adjustable for maximum comfort and allows the holster to be worn cross-draw.
The 578 GLS Pro-Fit is available in SafariSeven Plain Black and FDE Brown finishes with an MSRP of $55.00. Four fits are available that fit a wide array of Glock and S&W handguns. The holster will be featured at The Safariland Group booth #12762 at the NSSF SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, January 20-23.
