The Rapid Force Glock 17 Duty Holster combines lightweight, rigid construction with a more intuitive retention system. No other duty holster carries as easily nor functions as easily with the same security level. Take one for a field test, and you'll see the Rapid Force difference in action.


We surveyed dozens of agencies, hundreds of law enforcement officers and military personnel to learn what they wanted in a Glock 17 police holster. Their feedback resulted in the creation of the Rapid Force system.


The holster itself is injection-molded, using a lightweight but high-strength polymer blend that stands up to abrasion as well as the elements. Your choice of belt attachment can be deployed with or without a quick-release system.


The retention system is modular, configurable to your desires in a Glock 17 retention holster. Both Level II and Level III retention levels are available on the Rapid Force, with the Gross Motor Response retention system.


The Gross Motor Response control unit is placed on the inward side of the holster, between the belt attachment and the holster itself. You gain access to it while acquiring a firing grip on the pistol. Level II retention comes from a locking backstrap, actuated by a push-button thumb release. Level III retention is added in the form of an ejection port locking wedge.


A button guard is also included, acting as a guide rail for the user and preventing any unwanted access.


To operate the holster, push down with the shooting hand thumb, releasing the backstrap, and pull back on the thumb swipe lever, releasing the ejection port lock. This frees the pistol and ensures a proper grip coming out of the holster.


The holster can be ordered for pistols with or without weapon-mounted light capabilities, and with or without an RDS. If ordered as a Glock 17 red dot holster, an RDS sight hood is mounted to the backstrap with a protective flap to protect the optic while carrying.


The holster comes with one of three available belt attachments, for low-, mid- and high-ride applications. The belt attachments are jacket-style belt slides, which can be clamped to the duty belt, used as a belt slide or used with MOLLE webbing if desired.

Good Robust Holster Review by Noah
Quality
Price
Value
My agency purchased a rapid force holster for testing and evaluation. The Deputies who used the holster found them ergonomic, easy to learn, and very robust in design. After several months of testing and literally dragging Deputies around by the holster in an attempt to induce a failure, we were unable to defeat the retention. Since that time we have begun fielding the holsters as primary issue.

The sales staff and customer service has been pleasurable to work with and very accommodating. We look forward to a long relationship with AlienGear Holsters. (Posted on 1/15/2021)
Practical, Robust Holster Review by Dolph
Quality

Value
I was given a Rapid Force Duty Holster from a Rep. about six months ago to try out, for my Glock duty pistol. It is the level three holster with a hood cover for a red dot sight and accepts a tac light as well. I have been very pleased with this holster. It is extremely practical and adjustable, making it able to adapt to any shooters ergonomics. It is fast and the retention is sound! It's a very robust holster that can take a beating and protects your weapon well. The hood actually locks covering the red dot, instead of just being a loose flap that can fall off if bumped like other popular holsters. I have started using it on my SWAT battle belt and am looking forward to running it in that capacity now.

My only minor dislikes about it are that it doesn't yet have a quick disconnect system so you can transfer it to another belt and the ejection port release lever has some play in it, but I realize I have an earlier prototype model. I understand there is a second generation coming soon with upgrades.

I have been in Law Enforcement for nearly eighteen years, in many capacities and have spent ten years on tactical teams. I have competed in multiple handgun, three gun and SWAT competitions, including the Florida International SWAT Roundup. I currently am an assistant Armorer and Rangemaster for my Agency. I thoroughly trust this holster to do I what I need it to do and recommend it, especially for the price as well!

Flawless Draw Review by Alan
Quality
Price
Value
I was recently involved in a shooting that took me by surprise. The suspect drew from appendix carry and I had no indication of his intentions. I can say that this holster aided in my survival due to the ease and smoothness of draw.

This was one of my first thoughts shortly after the shooting. I've owned it for about 7 months, and I didn't have to think about the draw. I will never carry another holster for duty. Prior to this, I carried a Safariland that the majority of officers use.

My only recommendation is to Loctite the screws once you have it in the position that you like it. (Posted on 1/10/2021)
Minor flaw but still great Review by Grant
Quality

I purchased this holster to replace another name brand holster. The holster has a good build quality however I noticed that the holster tends to rub the slide while being drawn. It does not come with the locking quick disconnect like shown in the video however if you have a RTI rig you can put a safari land to RTI adapter on it and it works fine. The belt adapter that it comes with also works with Molle belts. I will keep using the holster for my Glock with TLR-1HL attached because of its quality. (Posted on 12/12/2020)
No quick latching system Review by Eli

This is a really quality holster that I use on a daily basis for my job. The video advertised a quick latching systems yet when I received my product there was no quick latching system which is the main reason I bought this holster. (Posted on 11/11/2020)
Good Holster. But......! Review by CJ
Quality

This holster was purchased at the beginning of 2020. It has been a good duty holster but I have found flaws. Like in another review there are exposed threads on the screws for the belt loops. It has also caused slide rub on the left side of my glock. These are things I can work around though. The holster still looks great and functions well. My main complaint is that this holster is advertised to be capable of switching to several different platforms which is why I bought it. This was my deciding factor when I purchased this holster and we all know there are other options out there but I choose to give alien gear my business. With that being said I've reached out several times for a time frame on accessories and have been met with no real answer. Due to my job functions now I have to spend more money to buy a new holster to fit my other job needs. Good duty holster but not what they made it out to look like in their video. Don't advertise it to do something that you have not yet produced or have no time frame on providing on what was advertised. (Posted on 9/23/2020)

Low mounted duty holster Review by james
Quality

got this holster a few months back for my glock 17. first look it seems large but simple and secure. very glad they included different size levers and thumb buttons. after some use it still seems incredibly bulky and the mount for the belt is very loose even when tightened all the way. this was my fault for ordering the low mount but it is very unstable and insecure (at the belt) due to how low it is compared to the belt. hand gun is very secure and fist perfectly into the holster. level 3 retention is extremely easy to use for the shooter and feels much safer than level 2. overall glad i own the holster but could use some improvements at the end of the day.

Rapid Force Duty Holster didn't disappoint... Review by Mark

I was a little upset when my order didn't ship at the expected time. I contacted customer service via the chat feature and was told I would have to wait a few more months due to a backlog in production. I then called customer service to speak to someone and learned there was a tweak in the design for safety purposes. The customer service agent was very helpful. My order was sped up and I received my holster about a week later.
Well, this week my department had qualifications and the holster worked like a champ with very little carry time or practice. It was worth the wait and I highly recommend the holster. The only thing I need to work on is re-holstering. I run a light and the first holster was a hand me down from a partner. I'm glad I made the switch.
I look forward to carrying this for the foreseeable future. (Posted on 8/27/2020)
