If you find yourself here because you think there are too many attachment options for the Ragnarok and Light Compatible Ragnarok, know you're not alone. There are several available attachment options and it can be confusing. This article is to help you make the decision of what option may work the best for you.
- Belt Loops
- Belt Slide
- Bladetech Paddle
- Safariland UBL Mid-Ride
- Safariland Mid-Ride UBL and Thigh Strap
- Safariland QLS Fork and Receiver Plate
- G-Code RTI Hanger
We built our Ragnarok to be the toughest OWB holster on the market with a versatile hole pattern. It works with a variety of attachment systems including Safariland, Blackhawk, Bladetech, and G-Code. The two holes on the left and the right are specifically for our Belt Loops.
Belt Loops give you the lowest profile possible, as they keep the holster tight to your body. You may find a dab of blue Loctite will serve you well when using the belt loops. To keep the screws from backing out if you are installing them yourself or want the added security (all of our hardware does come with a dab of thread locker from the factory, but you might want a bit more when installing these). These Belt Loops come in either 1.5" or 1.75", we find the majority of customers are running wide 1.5" belts.
The Belt Slide is a good option if you're wanting the holster mounted higher on the belt. There are two sizing nubs on either side, which can be adjusted to work with up to 2 inch wide belts.
The Bladetech Paddle is a great option if you think you'll need to take your holster off quickly at any point in your day. This paddle is also adjustable up to 2 inches.
The Universal Belt Loop (UBL) is our favorite mounting option here at T.REX. We prefer the Mid-Ride option as it places the back of your pistol level with your belt line. You can also use the CUBL if you would like to cant your holster forward.
Note: if you have the retention too tight on your holster it may kick out away from your body. We suggest using a Thigh Strap, highlighted in the next option, to counteract this.
Safariland Mid-Ride UBL and Thigh Strap:
The Thigh Strap keeps the holster in place, which allows for a smooth and consistent draw. The UBL with Thigh Strap works well If you only run one holster and do not plan to swap out to another holster during a range day. The Safariland QLS attachments are helpful, but not required.
Safariland QLS Fork and Reciever Plate:
The QLS Fork and Receiver Plate are used to easily swap out your holster. For example, if you run your Glock and then decide to shoot your M&P for a bit you can quickly switch out to your other holster. Without the QLS system, you would need to remove your whole rig from the belt and thread another holster back on.
The GCA35 Hanger is part of the Rapid Transition Interface (RTI) system from G-Code. It is similar in its function to a Safariland QLS system. If you already have a belt built for the RTI system, this is an easy add-on for you.
