I am looking to mount my Safariland on my belt, which is an old eagle warbelt. It works quite well for my purposes so I don't really feel like going out and buying a new belt. Anyways, right now I have it wrapped around the war belt itself, which creates several problems in of itself. I am not going to too far into detail on that, because I know how I could possibly alleviate those problems (tape, cutting the belt itself, etc)

However, what I am wondering is if there is any safariland molle adapter that is also mid-ride or ow-hang, because from what I've seen all the molle adapters mount the safariland pretty high if mounted to a belt. Which is a problem because I wear a pc and it'd get in the way pretty heavily.

So are there any options or solutions for this problem or am I basically stuck with either getting a new belt or mounting a belt-mounted mid-ride underneath my warbelt on a duty belt?

For wanting to go molle straight to belt, not gonna have a low ride option. The adapters are made to go between the belt loop and holster, that's where you'd get your drop. Unless you want to spend an extras $150 on top of holster, molle adapter, etc for s&s adapter....

That is $157 just for an attachment? I am good on that, ha! I feel like buying S&S clone stuff now, just out of spite.

Thanks for the input guys. Gonna have to weigh my options, because at this point it's seeming easier and cheaper to just buy a warbelt that gives access to the belt.

Was referring to the s&s clone stuff that's out there. :lol:

I have no need of it, but after seeing their prices I completely understand now.

@horsefighting: have you tried that combination? Wondering if the CTOMS panel is stiff enough not to hinder the draw?

no, i haven't used that combo. here's a pic -

i know it looks sloppy in the picture, but I bet if you ran it through the last row of molle on the belt before the drop extension it would straighten out a bit.

again, i'm just speculating. you don't know until you try it.

Well, from the looks of it, it looks like it wraps around a duty belt or inside a war belt. Not really sure how I'd mount that onto an old Eagle warbelt. Was hoping that was molle mounted. Unless I am totally misunderstanding how it works, from the pictures it doesn't look like it is mounted via molle. I guess I can just have my local custom gear maker, make me something very similar, but with molle on the back to mount to my war belt and then hang down low. Awesome, I just got an idea that will work.
