Blackhawk T-Series Red Dot Sight Holster – First Look

Blackhawk announced its T-Series holster line will be expanded to offer new Level 3 Duty Light Bearing holsters compatible with pistol mounted red dot sights.

Blackhawk T-Series Red Dot Sight Holster – First Look

The new T-Series Red Dot Sight (RDS) Holsters are designed for use with the Trijicon RMR/SRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro, SIG Romeo1Pro, and other similar sized optics.

Developed to support law enforcement officers who are authorized to use red dot sights on patrol sidearms, the T-Series RDS Holsters provide maximum protection for both the firearm and optic. The dual-injected molded holster provides proven durability for the sidearm while an additional removable rotating dust cover further protects the optic from impacts and debris. This combination of features provides users with a sleek, ergonomic design without adding extra bulk to the holster.

The T-Series RDS Holster will initially be available in a right-handed, light-bearing Level 3 Duty (L3D) model for the Glock 17.  Additional models will soon be available including both Level 2 Duty (L2D) and L3D in left and right-hand configurations for the Glock 17 and SIG SAUER P320 pistols. The holsters can be used with the Streamlight TLR-1 and TLR-2 pistol lights.

“As more law enforcement agencies authorize the use of red dot sights on patrol sidearms, the need for a duty rated holster that can accommodate these optics has never been greater,” said Evan McNamara, Director of Product Development for Blackhawk. “With its streamlined thumb-activation retention, the T-Series RDS Holsters keep your firearm and rear optic at the ready while maintaining total security.”


The Blackhawk T-Series line is the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster. The holster combines the company’s proven outer body strength made possible with a glass reinforced nylon along with a soft touch inner layer that is both super slick and sound-dampening. This durable and efficient, low-friction design translates into a smooth, quiet draw or when re-holstering the sidearm. Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.
