S & S Precision is a product development and manufacturing company in Virginia Beach, VA. I saw this on their show table at SOFIC. It is a Holster Extender made for Safariland patterned holsters utilizing the ALS system. The actual extender is the aluminum-colored plate you see between the tan holster and black belt loop attachment above.
The extender is a simple sliding aluminum base with a large button on the front to let the holster drop into detents at 1.5″ and 3″ below the hip-riding holster position. The aluminum extender is protected by a special ceramic coating that also subdues the finish.
S & S Precision caters mostly to the Military, and more specifically the Spec Ops community, hence the Virginia Beach locale. According to S & S Precision, “Extraordinary customers require unique solutions.” And further, “The crew at S&S precision eliminates the disparity between end user requirements and design/material/manufacturing expertise. We merge technical knowledge with real world experience to advance tactical equipment.” I have another one of their products in mind that I will write about in the coming weeks.
The Holster Extender is built only for Safariland ALS holsters now, but S & S’s Johnny Swan at the booth said they may be making another version for Blackhawk Serpa’s in the future. A list of S & S distributors is on their website.
I could see this product being useful to the street cop who needs to lower his duty gun and holster when throwing on a rifle plate carrier for hot calls. This is another example of a good design which is then Made in the USA.
