Interview With Brian Wilson of UM Tactical
Arms Directory’s Todd Feltman discusses the Qualifier Holster and the RAGE compensator with Brian Wilson of UM Tactical.
Brian shares valuable information about his growing product line’s many benefits to shooters, competitors, and law enforcement personnel worldwide.
Todd: What is the name of this specific holster?
Brian: This holster is called the Qualifier Holster.
Todd: Tell us about your unique holster designs.
Brian: This is our Qualifier Holster. It’s different than other holsters because it can be converted into an OWB holster. We call it a hybrid, as it can function as both an inside and outside the waistband holster using our Qualifier Strap.
Todd: What is the material used for these holsters?
Brian: We use a hybrid plastic called Boltaron, which was engineered specifically for holsters. This material offers flexibility while retaining durability.
Todd: Are these holsters available for different types of guns?
Brian: Yes, we manufacture a wide range of molds for various gun models, including Taurus, Glock, SIG, and more. We have the capacity to produce about 10,000 units a month for this style of holster.
Todd: How much do these holsters cost, and where can they be purchased?
Brian: The holsters retail for $59.95 on our website and can also be found on sites like Palmetto State Armory. Our holsters are often available at your favorite firearm store as well.
Todd: How does the qualifier strap work?
Brian: You remove the screws, pull the clip off, and directly replace it with the Qualifier Strap. Then, it functions like a pancake holster but with plastic instead of leather.
Todd: You also manufacture an innovative muzzle brake. Can you tell us more about that?
Brian: Our Rage Adjustable Muzzle Brake is a modular system that comes with multiple port washers. The number of washers varies depending on the caliber of the firearm. But, each of these washers displaces the gas differently, and the ports can be adjusted for different rotational angles.
Todd: What is the retail price for the Rage Adjustable Muzzle Brake?
Brian: The muzzle brake retails for $160. Considering it offers 180 different combinations, it’s an excellent value for the price.
Controlled reduction in muzzle rise and felt recoil is a primary reason elite shooters choose the RAGE compensator system.
The RAGE Kit includes five “port washers,” interchangeable, angled ports for the shooter to adjust and divert expanding gasses coming from the barrel.
Shooters can change the direction of muzzle gasses by quickly changing washers or shifting the location of the RAGE on the muzzle. The system requires no drilling and conforms to the 3 Gun Nation and USPSA Multi-gun rules.
The RAGE allows competitors the ability to manage muzzle gasses for the perfect shot; giving shooters and law enforcement personnel an extreme advantage.
RAGE Compensator Packages:
- Compensator Kit for the 5.56/223
- R.A.G.E. TCS 308, 9mm
- R.A.G.E. AK47
