Customer Favorites from Blackhawk

Blackhawk has made it their mission to constantly research, refine, and perfect every detail on all the gear they offer to ensure that it won’t let you down when you need it most. Take a look below for information on three innovative, top-quality customer favorites from Blackhawk.

Looking for tensile strengths between 5,000 and 7,000 pounds for effective rope maneuvering and rescues? The Blackhawk 1.75-inch CQB / Emergency Rescue Riggers Belt is MIL-standard certified and built with parachute-grade buckles and adapters for unparalleled strength and support. Extremely durable and NTOA member-tested and recommended, it can readily handle close combat as well as rope rescues. Its hook and loop closure helps secure its running end and prevents it from getting caught on other things.

Considered to be crucial equipment for a variety of operations, the Blackhawk Carabiners are constructed of heavy, black anodized aluminum and feature a working-load strength force rated to 26kN in excess of 5,800 pounds, thereby ensuring your safety while you’re on the ropes. They measure 2 inches by 4 inches by a ¼ inch on the outside (excluding the lock’s diameter), along with a 3 ½-inch by 1 ½-inch opening on the inside. They can withstand a tremendous amount of pressure and will not break nor accidentally open, due to a major axis strength of 6,900 pounds coupled with a working-load strength force rated to 26kN in excess of 5,800 pounds. Choose between a locking “D” or a non-locking carbiner, and take pride in the fact that you’ve made a safe selection.

Praised for its smooth draw, easy re-holster, and unparalleled weapon security, the Blackhawk CQC SERPA Holster Tactical Matte Finish features a unique, speed-cut design and the patented SERPA Auto Lock™ release, which is automatically positioned to facilitate a correct drawing motion – an ideal combination that translates to a perfect Level 2 retention holster for concealed carry. Thanks to its unique design, you don’t have to worry about old-fashioned thumb breaks – notorious for slowing your draw and complicating re-holstering.

Utilize the patented SERPA active retention system lock to engage the trigger guard as you holster your weapon; the lock will not let go until you release it. Make the release by using a natural-drawing motion; position your trigger finger beside the holster’s body. To facilitate a fast, smooth draw of your weapon, simply rest your trigger finger on the SERPA active retention system lock’s release mechanism, and push it as you draw. This efficient method avoids an awkward use of a middle-finger release or thumb break that interferes with a full-combat grip. Additionally, it fits shoulder, S.T.R.I.K.E., quick disconnect, and tactical-holster platforms.
