    Safariland 6377 comments and colors

    I'm thinking about getting this holster for my M&P9c. Does anyone have negative experiences with the 6377 or with ALS?
    Also wondering about the colors Foliage Green and Brown. Is the brown a tan, and how dark is the green? The available pictures aren't too clear, for me anyway.
    Thank you!

    I had a ALS on a Duty belt and It is a very nice system, no complaints here, very easy to use and when reholstering you just slide it back over the weapon, no snaps to mess with, you cant go wrong with a Safariland holster, very well made and will last..

    lyodbraun, does the ALS have something to slide over the weapon? I thought that was the SLS? Thanks!

    The ALS locks into the ejection port. There is an optional ALS Guard that allows an additronal level of retention if you feel you need it.

    Great rig

    I ordered a 6377 in foliage green. I think a black holster would really stand out against the clothes I usually wear. I'll let you know how I like it!

LOL, when you get the holster you will see what im talking about and how it works, they are a great holster...
    What you just described is the SLS, not the ALS. 2 different mechanisms. The SLS is the rotating hood design and the ALS has a lock that locks into the ejection port. Different systems

    I have a Safariland that has both BTW.

    I use a 6377 w/ALS guard on a duty belt for my P226 and it works great.

    I have one with SLS & ALS for duty, and my off duty is ALS only, great for muscle memory
    I took the sentry guard hood and extra retention lock off my duty rig since that was too much (level 5 with all in place)

    Great holsters

    You'll like the 6377. The ALS is the only retention system I'll use.
