For almost forty years, Aker Leather has produced some of the best tactical carry equipment for the military and law enforcement agencies. The Flatsider XR - 17 holster is a classic example of Aker's attention to detail and intimate knowledge of tactical duty requirements.

  • Concealed Carry
  • Fits Glock 42
  • Black or Tan
  • Left-Hand Orientation
  • Premium US Cowhide Material

Paying heed to input from various law enforcement agencies, Aker Leather offers several details that continue to put the XR-17 in a class of its own. The first noticeable change is the wider thumb break retention strap. There is no need to fumble around as the thumb break configuration allows an operator to free the weapon from the holster intuitively.

In addition, the Flatsider Paddle XR-17 holster body features a forward cant allowing the operator to draw naturally, and the leather molds around the pistol so that 100% of the pocket forms a snug fit around the gun.  

Aker Leather also includes a molded sight channel to ensure quick and easy deployment and reholstering.  On the outside face of the XR-17, Aker provides an adjustable tension screw that helps form the holster's body to the weapon and serves double duty as a trigger guard stop. The XR-17 also ensures the trigger is entirely covered when the gun is holstered, preventing the possibility of an accidental discharge.

The Flatsider gets its name because it is flat on one side, making it extra comfortable when worn. In addition, the dual-plane muzzle build promotes the use of both standard and shortened size barrels.

For those who prefer a holster that provides a quicker deployment speed, the XR-17  holster with improved thumb break retention is an excellent choice. When concealment is necessary and deployment speed must be intuitive and essential, the XR-17 Flatsider OWB holster is the one to buy.

Available in either tan or black, the Flatsider XR-17, like all holsters in the Aker Leather line, features premium, vegetable-tanned cowhide. Made in the USA at Aker's California plant, the XR-17 Flatsider doesn't require the paddle to be worn with a belt. However, for extra stability, one certainly will help. This particular model comes in plain black, accommodates left-hand operation, and fits a Glock model 42.
