06ranger, I don't know if you've found something suitable since your last posts.

If you already use a Fobus holster and are happy with it, Fobus make a drop-leg rig for use with their roto-holster range.

If you got the roto-holster appropriate for your pistol (if you're not already using a roto-holster) and the drop-leg rig it might suit you.

I use one and find it suits me. Holds the pistol securely within easy reach on my thigh and it's very stable provided the thigh strap is properly adjusted and the belt loop is properly secured - belt keepers may be required to stop it sliding around the waist.

If it gets covered in mud it's easily washed off and dried.

Works for me, may not work for you.

Completely correct. I was on a raid entry team and that's all we used. Solid, durable drop legs.

If it's black and made of nylon, it is tactical... No?

Lol correct and narrowed it down to a T. I was with 1st Marine Special Operations Batallion. Safari land is all we have ever used. Held and protected the 1911 flawlessly.

What retention system do those Safariland thigh rigs use?

The safariland holsters are thumb break holsters and are activated by pushing a button on the hood that flips the hood forward and allows for immediate access and withdrawal of your weapon. The stage 2 only has the hood as the safety as where the stage 3 holsters have the hood as well as another button that is depressed after the hood is down to withdraw the weapon.

Thanks, Recomm.

I like the simplicity of my Fobus. No thumb or finger actions, just snap the pistol out. I've found it retains the pistol very well even when running over uneven terrain and climbing hills.
