BLACKHAWK! describes this item as follows:
Level 3 retention holsters have long been the standard for law enforcement duty use. The problem has been that many holsters that provide this level of protection are clumsy to operate and can prevent the officer from drawing his weapon rapidly under stress. The level 3 SERPA Auto Lock holster uses your natural drawing motion to release the weapon. No unnatural motion or complicated sequences to remember, just grab and draw.
- SERPA Auto Lock System provides a quick, natural draw with immediate security upon reholstering to increase officer safety
- Injection molded carbon fiber composite construction provides incredible strength
- Extremely light weight
- No snaps or hoods to accidentally open, weapon stays secured until you decide to draw
- Ease of training, same drawing technique for undercover, tactical and duty
