PATROL RIFLE® HOLSTER
The patent pending Patrol Rifle® Holster (PRH) is designed for use by LEO’s in passive environments. The concept is to give LEO’s a means to holster the rifle, so their hands are free for other tasks while they maintain positive control of the rifle, just like they do with a holstered pistol. The PRH gives officers an option to holster their rifle (when appropriate) at the conclusion of violent incidents, while working static posts, while working crowed special events, and even in the training environment. The PRH makes carrying a rifle much more comfortable while putting citizens at ease and will improve officer and citizen safety. Other applications may include recreational shooters, rifle- armed security officers and military personnel.
1. User comfort and positive rifle control: Reduces a slung rifle's weight from the user’s neck & shoulders.
5. Stability: When the Patrol Rifle® Holster is used PROPERLY, a holstered rifle will barely move as the user moves, turns, bends, and kneels.
2. Public perception: Improves the public’s comfort level when seeing rifle-armed LEOs while giving LEOs the offensive power and accuracy they may need at a moment’s notice to protect the public.
|6. Ambidextrous: Lefties using the Patrol Rifle® Holster will draw and holster their patrol rifle with a right-handed grip and transition to a left-handed shooting position.
3. Safety: Increases officer and citizen safety. Slung rifles present two consistent safety concerns. The first is that the rifle's safety can get accidentally moved to the fire position as the rifle bounces around. Second, muzzles can easily be pointed in unsafe directions as the user is handling the rifle and as they move, turn, bend, and kneel.
|7. Training environment safety and efficiency: Increase range safety and save time so you can do more training.
4. Easy and simple to draw and holster the rifle: Simplicity at its finest using nothing more than your MILSPEC rifle's standard parts for new functionality. America baby!
8. Parts: The Patrol Rifle® Holster is ready to use with no modification or changes to your MILSPEC patrol rifle.

HOW IT WORKS: The PRH, unlike many other products on the market, does not require anything to be added or attached to your patrol rifle. The PRH allows the user of MILSPEC AR-15, M-4, or M-16 patrol rifles to hang the rifle by the bolt catch roll pin housing located on the left side of the lower receiver. Simply slide the top of your rifle’s bolt catch lever into the PRH and then push it downward until it locks into place. Most of the rifle’s weight is then rested upon the bolt catch roll pin housing. In addition, the magazine release housing guide snaps into the PRH, which helps prevent the rifle from twisting, keeping the muzzle pointed at the ground while increasing everyone’s safety. Once the magazine release housing snaps into the PRH, counter pressure is exerted and the magazine release button becomes very difficult to actuate while in a standing position, which helps prevent your officers from accidentally dropping a magazine at the conclusion of violent incidents, while working static posts for long periods of time, or while working crowed special events.
To draw the rifle, twist outward on the rifle’s pistol grip while pulling it up sharply and out of the PRH. When violence surprises officers working in the passive environment (parades, festivals, special events) even first time PRH users can expect a draw and presentation speed that is about as fast as an average user of a slung patrol rifle (both hands either on, or off the rifle). If a faster draw stroke is needed due to the proximity of the violence, officers always have the option of drawing their handgun.
SLINGS: The PRH is designed to be used with a quality two-point sling. It is not intended for use without a sling or a one-point sling. CMI can help you with recommendations and procurement of quality slings that work well with the PRH.
Attach the PRH directly to body armor.
Do not piggyback the PRH onto other MOLLE compatible accessories.
Note how the PRH is used in conjunction with an quickly adjustable two point sling.
The PRH will not fully seat if a chamber blocking device is inserted in the patrol rifle.
BODY ARMOR CARRIER SETUP : User comfort will dictate where the PRH is placed on your MOLLE compatible externally worn body armor or plate carrier. That said, we have found that a front mount just off the gig line (right side for righties…. left side for lefties) keeps the rifle sling in a comfortable position (not across your neck) and works best for the quickest draw stroke and for the holstering of the rifle. CMI can help you with recommendations and procurement of quality body armor and carriers that work well with the PRH.
PRH TRAINING: The PRH has created a whole new category of holster ware. Any training, drills, and policy regarding the deployment of the PRH are dictated by your agency. Even though the PRH is a very simple product to use, we recommend your agency provide some level of training on its proper and safe use prior to the deployment of this product.
TRAINING ENVIRONMENT SAFETY AID: Your agency’s firearms instructors will appreciate the added safety element that the PRH can bring to your range. Your agency’s training policies and or rules will dictate how you might use the PRH during patrol rifle training.
PRH MAINTENANCE & LIFE SPAN: PRH is an injection molded product that is made of a durable glass filled polymer. Maintenance requires nothing but wiping it down with a dry cloth. No chemicals of any kind should ever be used to clean the PRH. Daily inspection should occur to ensure all screws are tight and that the unit is in good working order. PRH is a disposable product with a life span that will vary depending on the frequency of use. For example, the PRH should last the average LEO, who only deploys the patrol rifle a couple times a shift, years before replacement becomes necessary. If your PRH wears out, you can inexpensively replace just that part of the MOLLE Patrol Rifle® Integrated Magazine Pouch.
