The Benchmade Nim Cub II fits most agency policies with its 3.5-inch  blade  and tang that are one piece.

The rails on S&W's 327 TRR8 provide ample room for customization,  although few holsters currently exist to fit the revolver and its  accessories. A custom holster may be your best option.

S&W's 327 TRR8 Revolver

Smith & Wesson developed its eight-shot 327 TRR8, after a SWAT officer contacted the company to ask for a beefy revolver for the lead penetrator, who must carry a ballistic shield with one hand. The TRR8 gives operators eight rounds of .357 Mag in a package including a Scandium "N" frame, 5-inch barrel, and blackened cylinder. Rails and moon clips are included.
