Duty Holster for the all new Walther Arms PDP 5”

fits 4”, 4.5” and 5” models

Please contact us for the Law Enforcement/Military Discount.

Dara's Level II Duty Holster is not just any OWB Holster with a hood slapped on it. It was designed from the ground up for the rigors duty and guaranteed for life. Starting with a robust body formed using .125" purpose blended Polymers, then fastened with blackened stainless steel hardware. This rig utilizes our tried and true Military Grade adjustable Rubber Retention System that allows you to tune the resistance to your preferred draw stroke. Our auto throw hood is locked in place until the intuitively located thumb lever is depressed. The hood then rotates with enough force to move loose garment, making your firearm ready when you need it. Don't settle for less- if you demand quality and endless reliability, you've found it.


-Our Duty Holsters are hand crafted in the USA from .125" Boltaron and molded precisely to each firearm for a perfect fit. 

-Our newly redesigned Duty Holsters are now equipped to accommodate slide mounted optics and suppressor height sights.

- 2 Levels of Retention: Adjustable Level 1 Retention System- Our rubber retention system was designed by us for use specifically with our holsters. Able to hold the most minute adjustments, this advanced system eliminates the need for loctite or any other thread locking substance. Second level of retention consists of a spring operate thumb throw hood system.

-The Level 2 Duty Holsters comes attached to our Drop Offset System and Double Loop. This system drops the holster to clear body armor and to allow for a more natural draw stroke. Another choice is our ALQD Quick Disconnect System.

-The Double Loop attachment fits 1.5"-2.25" belts. The belt width is adjustable and eliminates the need to purchase multiple attachments for different belts. The double loop also allows for ride height and cant angle adjustment. 

-Holster comes with an optional leg strap for added stability.

Please note: Our hole pattern is proprietary and meant only for use with our own attachments.


Be sure to checkout out our OWB Magazine Carriers, as well as our IWB Holsters for your backup gun.

    Duty holster review :walther pdp pro

    I do not have ties to this company nor am I affiliated with them in any way. I simply was scouring the Internet for a duty holster that would fit my Walther PDP pro which had been modified with a PMM comp and a holosun 508T . Fortunately I came across Dara Holsters. The PDP pro has a 4.5 inch slide and a 5.1 inch barrel, with the added compensator it has been a task to find any duty holster that will accommodate it. I ordered the 5 inch PDP holster in hopes it would work. To my luck it fit like an absolute glove. Great retention as well as an audible click that tells you it’s locked inside. As far as craftsmanship, it’s top notch, very well constructed and I really like the button that’s used to deactivate the secondary level of retention. To anyone who’s pistol build is similar I will note that the compensator does extend past the muzzle of the holster by about half an inch, so it is exposed and it is a bit tight at the end making it a bit snug. Not a deal breaker however , I’m still very pleased overall with their product and would purchase from them again.

    Walther PDP Duty Holster

    I purchased the duty holster for a run and gun competition. The fit and finish is excellent! I love the quick thumb release for the retention collar. This was a must as I could not afford the pistol popping out of the holster resulting in a DQ (and more importantly the safely concerns associated with losing control of a loaded weapon). The draw is smooth and I like the belt width adjustment. FYI it mated up perfectly with a Black Scorpion belt. I will be ordering another soon for my other pistol.

    Excellent Holster!

    Absolutely LOVING this holster system with it’s ultra quick thumb throw hood system. The placement off the body is really intuitive and the draw is smoooooth. Also, I can confirm that the hood fit over the 4” PDP Compact with a Holosun 509T atop a C+H Precision adapter plate

    Walther PDP Duty Holster

    First Dara holster for myself. Pleased with how nice it is. I like the drop and offset. Wanted the duty holster for red dot, with the hood working perfectly. Got it for Run-N-Gun, not duty.

    Outstanding Rig

    This is the second one I ordered for my 4” PDP pistol, my first was so impressive for use on my tactical gear, I ordered the second one for my regular duty gear set up. The holster fits the PDP well and has a slight snap retention feature to keep the pistol in-place for weapon retention. It draws super fast with the best hood retractable release Ive ever carried compared to another leading competitor which now doesn’t stand up against the Dara. I highly recommend this holster for your PDP or any other duty use firearm.

    Walther PDP Duty Holster

    This is a review of my Walther PDP Duty Holster. This is my second Dara Duty Holster, the first one several years ago for a CZ. I ran the holster during a week of training at Gunsite in Arizona. I was the only student rocking a duty type retention rig. I mounted it on a battle belt with G Code mag carriers. The holster never hung me up and I was just as fast from the draw as anyone else. These are fast to release and draw from compared to most other duty holsters that I really dislike (Safari****)! Highly recommend if you are in LE or security.

    Amazing service.

    Perfect holster, although I wish they had a level 3. USA duty gear couldn't make one in less than a month, DARA sent me mine in 2 days.
