    Updated Safety Recall Notice - Issued 07dec07

    Please note that the Updated Safety Recall Notice linked above and issued on 07dec07 for certain "High Wall" versions of both the Blackhawk Carbon Fiber SERPA and the Blackhawk Sportster holsters, supersedes all previously released notices about this recall (only).

    The linked update adds two additional Component Part Numbers (C1215-S and C1215-L-S) to the two (C1215 and C1215-L) that were contained in the preceding notice(s).

    Please read and follow the Notice linked below to determine if your holster is among the limited group affected by this recall.



    Blackhawk Products Group is announcing a safety recall that applies to the "High Wall" versions of Blackhawk's Carbon Fiber SERPA Holsters and Blackhawk Sportster Holsters intended to fit only Glock Models 20 and 21 and the Smith & Wesson M&P in any caliber or configuration that are marked: "Glock 20/21"; "Glock 20/21 S&W M&P; or "Glock 20/21 S&W M&P .45". These holsters also have the Component Part Number C1215, C1215-L, C1215-S, or C1215-L-S molded into the bottom of the rear wall of the holster body.
    As a result of a single incident, it has been determined that employing certain movements when attempting to place the Smith and Wesson M&P Pistol (in any caliber or configuration) into these "High Wall" holsters can cause the handgun to engage that "High Wall" and unexpectedly discharge if there is a round in the chamber and the trigger is in what Smith & Wesson calls "the striker fire action mode". A discharge or "firing" of the weapon in this manner could cause property damage or personal injury or death to the user and/or others.

    Regardless of what firearm you are using with the holster, you should immediately determine if your holster is included in the two groups of holsters affected by this recall as described in the actual Notice linked below. If it is, you must stop using it and return it to Blackhawk Products Group by following the procedure contained in the linked Notice.

    Yeah its the holster, not the guns. I've had no issues with my MTAC, and neither has anyone else that I've heard of or read about.

    So this only applies to the S&W or the Glocks listed as well?

    From my understanding the same holster can be used for a Glock 20,21 and M&P all in one but only the M&P has a chance to discharge correct?

    BTW I use a Blackhawk holster for my G22 and I love it. Very good quality much better than Fobus.

    :rofl: I thought I was the only one that hated fobus. My friend showed up to our "range day" with one and started bragging about his new fobus holster and I gave him the :hs: face.


    that being said, I have a Blackhawk SERPA for general holstering needs while at the range, and it works fine for me.... But I have a Glock 22. I wouldn't daily-carry with it, by no means!

    I think they make great guns too. I'd love to have a DR-200 someday.
