Safariland Introduces Springfield XD Fits to its GLS Holster Series

Safariland Introduces Springfield XD Fits to its GLS Holster Series

ONTARIO, California – Safariland® announces today the release of two new fits to its GLS™ (Grip Locking System) holster line. Introduced earlier this year, GLS models continue to grow in popularity and all models are now available for the Springfield Armory XD 4″ Service and the XD(M) model handguns. The GLS series combines security and an intuitive draw in a compact design with its patent-pending retention device which is disengaged only by drawing the handgun with a proper shooting grip.
Similar to Safariland’s proven ALS® (Automatic Locking System) retention system, GLS retention automatically locks the handgun in place once holstered. It provides an important level of security by ensuring that the handgun can only be removed with a straight up draw as the wearer simultaneously releases the retention device. GLS models also feature low-cut sides, aiding in concealment, draw speed and re-holstering.
GLS holster models offer a low profile and compact design, perfect for concealability. The SafariLaminate™ construction provides an excellent fit in a durable, lightweight holster. The three GLS holster models are available in the Safariland STX finish in seven different colors. Belt loop, paddle and clip-on versions are offered to suit the user’s needs.
