About the ASG Drop Leg Holster Platform
Holster sold separately***
Convert your Action Sport Games Strike Systems holster to mount to a drop leg holster. With ASG's modular Strike System series of holsters, you can adapt one holster to many types of loadouts and situations. The Strike System holster series is made up of locking holsters made from injection molded materials. The locking mechanism secures your pistol from coming out unintentionally and is released by the press of a large button on the side of the holster. By default the Strike System holsters are configured to be used as a paddle holster which clips to your pants and follows the contour of your body.
Available other options to adapt your holster are this MOLLE adapter and belt loop adapter. You will want to run the MOLLE adapter if you wish to mount your pistol to your web gear such as your plate carrier or a modular drop leg panel. Some people might not like the hard plastic drop leg panels so this would be the alternative to getting a true drop leg platform. The belt loop adapter hangs the holster slightly off the belt as opposed to the default paddle which just clips to your pants. The belt loop is ultimately more secure but more difficult to take on and off unlike the paddle. The option you are looking for makes the holster mount off your leg and gives you a nice space on your side so that you can have a clean draw. Sometimes your vest with all its pouches makes it impossible to run a belt mounted holster so dropping it down is a better option. All of the Strike System holsters mount with a single bolt however the holster can be timed at whatever angle you would prefer thanks to the integrated adjustable mount molded straight to the components. Simply mount the holster at whatever angle you prefer (some people like a slight cant to improve their draw), line up the grooves in the mount and then secure the single bolt with the supplied allen keys.
To mount a holster to this platform, be sure you have an ASG Strike System Holster first as that is the only compatible type. The holster requires the use of one screw and tool which is included. You can use the adjustable mounting system and index it so you have your preferred draw angle.
Q: What is injection molding and what does it mean for holsters?
A: Injection molding is a process used to make affordable holster such as these. It relies on a mold which is filled with plastic material. General fit and finish will be excellent and you won't be able to tell the difference between this and a very expensive holster for fit. Manufacturers can save you money with this process because mass production is much faster and easier this way. For airsoft this is perfectly usable. Other holster types include the soft/sewn nylon type and Kydex. The nylon type requires being sewn by hand or machine and is more expensive than a molded holster. Kydex is a hard plastic material that is very durable. People and manufacturers alike use this material to make their own holster that is going to be very strong. The material as well as time to produce make this more expensive.
