ATK announced the US Army recently selected the BLACKHAWK! SERPA Tactical Holster for its Improved Modular Tactical Holster Program.
The five-year, $24 million contract was awarded to BLACKHAWK! distributor ADS, Inc.
The SERPA Holster is now the current platform for the US Marine Corps, US Army, Army Military Police, the German Army and other law enforcement and military agencies both domestic and international.
"ATK is honored that the U.S. Army has chosen the SERPA for their Improved Modular Tactical Holster Program," said ATK Sporting Group President Jay Tibbets. "ATK is focused on delivering affordable and innovative products that meet the needs of our customers. Our high-quality BLACKHAWK! SERPA holster system has, once again, been selected by a U.S. military organization as an integral part of a Soldier's standard issue equipment."
The SERPA has been proven in military conflicts and law enforcement engagements worldwide. The latest award was in response to a Soldier Clothing and Individual Equipment requirement for improvements to be made to the current Army Tactical Drop-Leg Configuration Holster System.
The improvements provided by the SERPA holster are the increased modularity, including a drop-leg configuration that can be quickly transferred to a hip configuration. The SERPA also has the capability to be worn or attached to current Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment (MOLLE), load carriage equipment such as rucksacks and the Tactical Assault Panel (TAP) or on individual body armor such as the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV) or the Soldier Plate Carrier System (SPCS).
The BLACKHAWK! SERPA Tactical Holster complies with the Berry Amendment and has also been assigned a national stock number (NSN) and is available to any unit in the U.S. military, including the National Guard. The 8,400 units already delivered on this contract will add to the 6 million SERPA holsters in service worldwide.
