    • Blackhawk Serpa level 2 for Glock23
      Reviewer: Travis B.


      Purchased this for my gen 4 Glock 23. Item arrived quickly. Simply insert the three screws in the back, place it on your hip, insert the weapon and adjust the tension screw.....done. Fitment is great, both on the hip and the weapon. All edges are nice and smooth; nothing the snag. Unholstering and reholstering are smooth as silk. The active retention took a little getting used to, coming from a passive retention holster, but is rather intuitive. All-in-all, a great product at a fair price.

      Reviewer: Tommy Molnar


      It fit my Springfield Armory XD 45 perfectly, and I love the fact that it holds the gun with no chance of it falling out. It came with both the paddle and/or belt mount. I prefer the paddle. It IS a bit difficult to get the paddle slid in to my pants properly, but once in, 'it ain't coming out'! The added effort is well worth it for me.

      Reviewer: larry Sullivan


      Safety feature is great, but putting this on and taking it off is a problem for me. A friend of mine has one like this made by a different company and he puts his holster on and slips it off easily. There must be a step that i'm not getting. Seems very well made and fits comfortably once in place.

      Reviewer: Heisenberg


      This holster is a very secure way to carry. I was worried about the guy who steals your wallet also taking my weapon, but not with this. Between the weapon locking in, and how the paddle secures over the pants and belt, it is a comfortable and worry free carry. I thought it came with the paddle AND belt platforms, but only has the paddle.

      Reviewer: Ron C.


      I purchased this holster for my Springfield XDs 45, The only downside I found was the ride height of the weapon, however, I was able to adjust it lower on the paddle, and now the ride height is lower and more comfortable. The major reason I bought this holster is the retention system, it would be very dificult if not near impossible for someone to come up behind me and take the weapon out of the holster.

      I have another of these holsters for my S&W 9mm so I bought another for my Rock Island 1911 A2 .45. Unfortunately it doesn't work straight out of the box - had to heat it a bit with a heat gun and widen up the top due to the wider hand grips with the stacked clip. Now works Great - super happy with the holster!

    • Repeat Customer, Better if Room for Laser + Light
      Reviewer: Randy


      The Blackhawk Sportster holster for Glock 20 also fits Glock 29 fine (Gen 4 anyway so I guess Gen 3 would fit too), and I have been carrying that way for several months with no scratching or marring. Latches in easy, and never comes out until you want it to. I'm getting two more today for various rigs and carry options. Only reason for 4 stars is it would be better if there were room for my Viridian C5L red and green laser + light set-ups. It is great Blackhawk has them in left and right-hand models since you never know where you could get hit or which arm is left to grab a back-up gun.

      Reviewer: david


      I love Blackhawk holsters however, The newest FN 5.7 is called a Mark 2 and has a wider slide. The model is called Mark 2, So the models for the 5.7 IOM, USG, FDE, ODG are not wide enough. As I have found out twice now. Be sure the one you buy says it will fit a mark 2. I hope this helps other people avoid the same problem I had/have.

    • Just a little extra work made it perfect
      Reviewer: Jesse


      My solution to the loose fit for the level 2 Glock 19 was to put a strip of soft VELCRO at the base of the trigger inside the holster. It still had a little wiggle at the end of the barrel so a 3/4 wide by 1 1/2 inch piece inside the holster where the bottom of the barrel touches and a 1/2 x 1 inch piece where the top of the barrel touches near the front site. Both inside the holster frame. This simple fix will prevent scratching, provide much less wiggle and protect the Glock's finish.

    • Great Bang For Your Buck
      Reviewer: Kevin


      This holster is a bit bulkier than my standard daily IWB carry -- but it fits great. I had never used this type of holster. I can draw quickly and easily with it. The design has it set off of my hip a bit more than I'm used to, but my "inside waist band" holster is obviously going to be very snug against me. I can easily wear a jacket over this and not have a noticeable bulge. I have seen no evidence that this holster is marking / marring the gun or rubbing funny. It fits very well... not too tightly, not too loosely. It doesn't shake as I walk or run, but it slips right out without any effort (as long as I am pushing the button). Regarding the paddle-type holster. I had never used a holster that clipped like this. I'm amazed how well it stays on and stays in place without a belt restraining it. I clip this over my existing belt (or jeans with no belt) and it stays up pretty well. I thought it would sag or pull downward MUCH MORE than it does... it barely shifts around. In a close-quarters struggle, this holster seems like it would take a lot to be removed accidentally. Based on the button and the angle required to draw the weapon, this appears to be a great setup to avoid losing your weapon. A LEO told me that the most important thing to him is to be able to hang on to his weapon in that situation. He carries a holster like this and was impressed at this one-- especially for the price.

      Reviewer: Brandon


      Well, i got the Blackhawk Serpa Level 2 Sportster with the paddle, and LOVE IT already. Just for an idea of size and all, i carry a Beretta 92. *The paddle seems to take some stress off the belt line which is a plus. *It is adjustable on the paddle so you may change the angle of the weapon which is another great feature. *It has an adjustable trap, so you can customize how easy the draw is ( i have mine fairly loose and its still locked in there super tight ) *the release button is very easy to control and while drawing i notice my finger is at the stand-by position along the slide.
