The design allows the user to transition the holster from one mounting option to another with unequalled precision. To use simply slide the plastic lock to the open position and insert the RTI holster. Slide the lock back to the locked position and the holster is securely in place.
For many gun owners, the RTI is preferable because mounting attachments do not have to be purchased separately and a number of mounting platform solutions are available including pistol belts, battle belts, a standard RTI wheel mount, or MOLLE gear. Additionally, the wheel mount can be placed anywhere a screw can be drilled such as inside a car or under furniture.
3. OSL Standard and RTI Kydex G Code Holsters
For those that do not require the heavy duty G Code holsters, the Operational Series-Light (OSL) is a great alternative. It’s perfect for plain clothes or off-duty carry officers as well as for competition shooting and tactical applications. It is essentially a cross between the OSH and SOC holsters that are so popular today.
Specifically designed for those that need to carry their weapon and light together, it is considered a precision level one holster. This is an important component when weapons are equipped with RMR’s or like optics plus, even though it’s lightweight, it’s just as fast as its OSH counterpart. The OSL RTI G Code holsters, on the other hand, allows the user to instantly switch the holster to other RTI mounted configurations just as with the OSH options. Both are guaranteed for life and are made in the USA.
Price (Standard): $55.00.
Price (OSL RTI): $66.50.
4. XST RTI Kydex G Code Holsters
For people inspired by features included in the OSH Series such as heavy use, precision formed fold and wrap design and adjustable pro-safe tensioning with second-level of retention, the XST series might be the perfect option. The over-the-top power-assisted retention canopy is a featured component of the XST design.
It was created with combat in mind and is ready for the field once strapped on. Ample clearance has been added to accommodate night sights as well as raised suppressor sights. Additionally, extended threaded barrels are not a problem due to the open front design. Unlike some of the other options, accessories are not included such as the RTI Paddle Adapter, RTI H-Mar Molle Adapters for vest and plate carriers, and RTI Battle Belt Molle Adapter to name a few.
The base price is $60.50 with accessories ranging from $10 to $52.25.
5. SOC RTI G Code Holsters
Setting a new bar for G Code Holsters is the revolutionary SOC RTI Series. The design is unique in that different Kydex lower cowlings can be interchanged with a Molded Injection top frame. What that means is that lower cowlings can be purchased for the gun-only along with additional cowlings needed to accommodate weapons with mounted light combinations without having to pay for additional molded injection top frames.
When multiple weapons and combination weapon/lights are utilized, only the lower cowlings will need to be purchased. The result is a significantly reduced price over time. The over-the-top power-assisted retention canopy then serves as a second level of retention. The unit is compatible with all RTI accessories and comes with an RTI mounting plate installed. You can purchase lower cowlings in a variety of colors, but the upper frame is available only in black.
Price: $98.00 (for a basic unit without accessories).
