Weapon light compatibe holsters / Weapon light models

Have a weapon light on your handgun? The KT Defender, Weapon light compatible KT AKELA, and Duty KT AKELA holsters are weapon light compatible.

- The weapon lights available to each handgun model may differ because some fits most but not all (i.e. a full size weapon light may not fit a compact handgun, therefore it is not an available option).

- Each weapon light attaches to the handgun, typically via an accessory rail. These accessory rails typically come in two most common formats, the Military Standard M1913 rail dimension (i.e. 1911, CZ, FN, HK, S&W, Sig Sauer, Walther, etc...), and the Weaver or Glock rail dimension (i.e. Glock, Springfield, etc...).

- Each weapon light manufacturer may have a different method of attaching to the rail. Most light manufacturers provide a set of rail keys that lock onto the accessory rail, typically to fit either the M1913 or Glock rail dimension. If you're not sure of which rail key to use on your handgun and weapon light combination, just contact us and we'll provide you with the optimal setup to ensure a good fit with the holster, email: contact@kt-mech.com

- If you modify your weapon light's attachment method outside of the manufacturer's suggested usage, we may not be able to build a holster for you because it would be very unlikely for us to exactly duplicate your personal craftsmanship, thereby we cannot guarantee a good fit.

NOTICE: Weapon light compatible holsters will retain your firearm about 80-90% via the weapon light's contours. Without the weapon light attached to your firearm, the weapon light compatible holster will still function effectively like the old western style holsters, loose and almost no resistant to draw. Use the right tool for the job instead of trying to compromise. We suggest getting a holster without the weapon light if that's how you plan to carry. Our prices are one of the best and you can always get two that each do their job well.

 

Weapon Lights and ratings:

Surefire X300 / X300 Ultra (A/B)***** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Solid build, very good streamlined design, and works well with Thermoplastic sheet holsters. Currently in use with many Law Enforcement agencies, PMC, and Irregular Military Forces around the world. Easy to use, easy to attach, very intuitive.

Surefire X400 / X400 Ultra * - Not available as an option with KT holsters. Its current design and unusual protrusions are not conducive for holster use.

Surefire XC1 ** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Very expensive for what you get, only usable with full size handguns/rails, very compact and neat appearance. The rail locking mechanism is unusual in that it pushes away from the rail the more you tighten the small screw, and may cause fitment issues, depending on the amount of tension you apply. A small screwdriver or a spear point knife is required to lock and unlock this weapon light to/from the rail.

Streamlight TLR-1 ***** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Solid build, BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK, very good streamlined design, and works well with Thermoplastic sheet holsters. Currently in use with many Law Enforcement agencies, PMC, and Irregular Military Forces around the world. Easy to use, easy to attach, very intuitive. Includes rail keys to attach to both the Weaver and Military Standard M1913 rail dimensions.

Streamlight TLR-2 ***** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Solid build, BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK, very good streamlined design, and works well with Thermoplastic sheet holsters. Currently in use with many Law Enforcement agencies, PMC, and Irregular Military Forces around the world. Easy to use, easy to attach, very intuitive. Includes rail keys to attach to both the Weaver and Military Standard M1913 rail dimensions. The laser module is minimal but makes for a tall setup.

Streamlight TLR-3 **** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Inexpensive and works well with Thermoplastic sheet holsters. Easy to use, easy to attach, very intuitive. Includes rail keys to attach to both the Weaver and Military Standard M1913 rail dimensions.

Streamlight TLR-4 *- Available as an option with some KT holsters. Inexpensive for a laser/light combo setup. Easy to use, easy to attach, very intuitive. Includes rail keys to attach to both the Weaver and Military Standard M1913 rail dimensions. The TLR-4 is not available with some KT holster models such as the Duty KT AKELA holster because it failed some of our tests for retention and fit consistency. This weapon light is basically the TLR-3 with an after-thought laser module attached to the bottom, without an upgraded attachment method. For this reason, the TLR-4's attachment hardware isn't very sturdy and has a tendency to cant and wedge itself in the holster during our tests. We humbly suggest that you check out the TLR-2 if you haven't yet purchased this weapon light.

Viridian C5 / C5L ** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Great features, optional attachments allow for a full size or compact handgun/rail. We can build the holster with the ECR (Enhanced Combat Readiness) feature for $15 by request. This weapon light is not cheap but the materials used for construction are. Common issues are the rubber gaskets wear out and fall off over time. The rubber buttons are soft and peel off over time. This weapon light is great for the range and showing off to a friend, however may not be ideal for actual combat, Military, or Duty use because adjustments and attachments require very small tools that are easy to lose and you'll have to carry them with you.

Viridian X5L gen 2 *** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Great features, optional attachments allow for a full size or compact handgun/rail. We can build the holster with the ECR (Enhanced Combat Readiness) feature for $15 by request. This weapon light is not cheap but the materials used for construction are. Common issues are the rubber gaskets wear out and fall off over time. The rubber buttons are soft and peel off over time. This weapon light is great for the range and showing off to a friend. The X5L gen 2 is slightly more rugged than the C5/C5L.

Inforce APL gen 2 screw type (gen 1 lever type) ***** - Available as an option with KT holsters. Solid build, very good value, very good streamlined design, and works well with Thermoplastic sheet holsters because there are no unusual or irregular and unnecessary protrusions. Currently in use with many Law Enforcement agencies, PMC, and Irregular Military Forces around the world. Easy to use, easy to attach, very intuitive. Includes rail keys to attach to both the Weaver and Military Standard M1913 rail dimensions.

Nebo ProTec and other variants * - Not available as an option with KT holsters. Its current design and unusual protrusions are not conducive for holster use. The bezel's shape and inconsistent index from one sample to another is an issue with Thermoplastic holster fitment.

Crimson Trace light/lasers (CT) * - Not available as an option with KT holsters. CT's current attachment design allow for a wide range of rail placement without indexing. This will cause fitment issues.

LaserMax * - Not available as an option with KT holsters. LaserMax's current designs are not conducive for Thermoplastic holster use. There isn't enough surface area to capture because the buttons are located very close to the leading edge where we would have to build clearance to prevent inadvertent actuation. These lasers are great but were not designed for holster use.
