I know that the ATP fits in the Blackhawk Serpa holster for the Glock 17. But will it fit in the Blackhawk Light Bearing Serpa Holster as well if you attach the Blackhawk Xiphos tac light to it?

Also on a side note, when is the ATP AUTO's expected release?

Welcome to the KWA forums! I haven't heard of anyone trying the the Xiphos light holster, probably because I don't see that many people in airsoft using the Blackhawk Xiphos. I assume it would work, I don't see why it wouldn't. Do you already have that light?

I would think so.  I don't see any reason why it wouldn't.

I dont have the light yet, but i just wanted to make sure before i bought it that there wasn't any small difference that would make in incompatable.

How much are you looking to shell out for both a light and a holster? Are you flexible? I think there are better combinations on the market that may be more, erm, price efficient?

What other combinations would you suggest? I really like the blackhawk serpa holsters. I have an atp and a drop leg serpa right now but Ill prolly sell those for around 180 once the auto atp comes out. Which i why id like to know a release date on that as well. The money i get from that will go towards getting a new setup.

Hmm, actually now that I think about it, considering the low cost of the holster itself, it probably wouldn't be much of a price difference between this setup and others. This was a problem I was facing when I was searching for a light compatible holster for my M9. Its unfortunate Blackhawk doesn't carry holsters for pistols with any other lights.
My set up is the KWA M9 tactical with the Streamlight TLR1s and a Gcode SOC holster, custom lower for light, and RTI molle mount. Luckly I got a decent deal with this set up.

I dont really like the GCode holsters because you have to flip the strap back up whenever you reholster. the blackhawk ones i can just push it back down and it locks back in.
