It is particularly annoying when you buy a new handgun model and find that many off-the-shelf holsters need to have a fair bit of work done with the Dremel before things fit perfectly and work smoothly. The fact of the matter is that many airsoft manufacturers are slightly off in the frame sizes of their handgun replicas which results in the holster not accommodating your new pistol.
WE Airsoft Europe have a considerable range of pistol replicas which is growing all the time, and to make sure that you get something that works straight out of the packaging they have gone to great lengths to produce viable holsters as part of their NUPROL accessories range; not only have they produced a range of holster models but they’ve also gone the extra mile to produce an entire system that works flawlessly together!
Starting with the holsters themselves, there are currently models in the NUPROL line-up for the 1911/MEU, EU, M92, and F series models. £19.99 will get you a dedicated holster for your replica made out of 100% bombproof Law Enforcement grade polymer. The holsters themselves offer Level II retention thanks to a lever inset to the body; when you holster your pistol the lever snaps closed over the trigger guard meaning that it’s not going to come out until you really want it to. Each holster comes with a belt ‘paddle’ which can be rotated for a canted draw; this is easily adjusted through the centre of the retention lever with the hex wrench that comes as part of the package. In use the draw is smooth and intuitive, and after some practice with my own EU17 pistol it was also super quick!
This hex wrench also means that you can really start of play with the other components of the system. For £14.99 you can add a double magazine pouch, once again dedicated by model to the different pistols. This also comes with a belt ‘paddle’ as standard and is fully adjustable for tension, holding your magazines firmly in place, and once again you can angle it for ease of draw simply by adjusting the central screw.
For both the holsters and the magazine pouches you can remove the paddle entirely and then there are two options for mounting available to you. It has become popular for many airsofters to attach their holster directly to their plate carrier or chest rig so the NUPROL system makes use of an easily installed MOLLE adapter which slots into the webbing. Once this is in place it’s just a matter of screwing Tired of never finding a holster for you handgun? Bill Thomas gets his hands on the latest Perfect Fit models from the NUPROL range…
the holster or magazine pouch straight onto the adapter; once everything is set, it’s rock solid. The adapter costs just £9.99 and fits all the different holster and pouch models.
Should you wish to carry your pistol separate from your other gear, but have clearance for draw away from the base edge of a plate carrier, then the NUPROL system has this nailed as well. Priced at £34.99 the Drop Leg Platform has three ‘roto’ attachment points for the holster itself and two other accessories like magazine pouches. This is a cracking piece of kit which allows multiple configurations and it’s put together from the same high grade polymer as everything else, along with top-quality webbing, Velcro, and buckles. It’s fully adjustable for length of draw and sits very comfortably on the thigh when properly adjusted.
Overall this a really well thought out and achieved system and it comes with my thorough recommendation; yet again the NUPROL team have proved that they know the game by providing super equipment for players at a very reasonable price!
