    VIR II Holster

    Anybody have experience with duty holsters for the Streamlight TLR VIR II? G19 MOS RMR, threaded barrel. Hoping for Safariland ALS. G34 length is preferred because Iíve also got a Roland Special.

    Edit: see below. It works with a TLR-1 Safariland holster.

    I believe the size is identical to the TLR-1 line, with everything contained with the head. So any advice for that light should cross over.

    My 6354DO’s (832?) were molded a bit to fit the PPQ with both TLR and X300, and I’ll be using one with the VIR II.

    I checked that out last night. The TLR 1ís bezel is slightly further from the bore. The X300ís shoulder is a tiny bit further back. Either are close enough to work with slight modification, probably. But in the holsters (not Safariland) Iíve checked so far, its not quite right. Iím going to contact Safariland and Streamlight on monday, and also ask a local dude I know if I can try his.

    I was just mildly surprised since they looked so similar, and the internet told me it would work.

    Edit: see below. It works in a TLR-1 holster.

    Well that is potentially disappointing. I still plan to pick one up, so will see if these modded holsters will work for my situation

    Works perfectly in two Safariland TLR 1 RDS Duty holsters, with two types of retention. Iím pretty stoked.

    I can only say I wished I knew about Safariland QLS fork system and one strap drop leg for the win. So many mfg make holsters for it other than safariland like Tier 1 etc. had I known what I know now, I could have saved serious cash building full belts for each gun.

    Yeah, brother. Iíve been married to the G Code system for a long time, but I think Safariland has some things going for them that G Code isnít matching, now that Iím shooting with dots more. Plus, pretty much everyone I train with on the LE side is wearing Safariland.

    I also heard the TR1 will work. I plan to get an ALS soon for my P320 X5. I just moved the VIR II from my rifle and need a new holster now.
