Fountain Valley, California-based SureFire says one of their new weapon light-interfacing MasterFire holsters have been used with success by military commandos.

“Recently a US Special Operations team successfully conducted the first night combat jump relying on the MasterFire Holster to retain a handgun suppressed by a SureFire Ryder9 suppressor,” said the company on Twitter. “The MasterFire performed as designed, validating the concept and fulfilling the requirement.”

The MasterFire is a rapid-deploy holster designed specifically to interface with most railed handguns equipped with a SureFire H-Series (XH15, X300UH, X400UH) weapon mounted light and an optional Ryder can without dismounting the latter. The holster’s light activation switch can be set to automatically activate the weapon light and/or mounted laser when the handgun is drawn.

The holster adds 8.75-ounces to the user’s kit and the auto-on switch can be disabled if desired. It is also customizable and adjustable to fit an array of belts or carriers.
