A couple years ago, I would have agreed with you. But Raven has gone downhill lately.

They discontinued their flagship Phantom holsters, and have switched to a new design (that's cheaper/easier to mass-produce). They also switched from using Kydex to using (cheaper) injection-molded plastic.

To make matters worse, they're only offering OWB holsters for four different handgun models now.

Like most holster makers that grow to a certain size, they've basically gone from offering high quality custom holsters to cranking out lesser quality mass-produced holsters using cheaper materials.

A huge disappointment, as they were one of my go-to holster makers in years past. I'm glad I stocked up on kydex Raven Phantom holsters when I had the chance...

Agree with this, I wanted an OWB scabbard for a new Glock 26 and found a slightly used Raven Phantom holster on Ebay. The OWB holster that they are making now... no thank you.

Quoted for truth!!!

Raven Phantoms are Awesome. Then Raven felt the need to discontinue that line and go CHEAP. I have stocked up on five Phantoms for the G19 which work equally well with my two G19.5 or two G26.5 that I use for EDC. I think Raven Concealment made a very stupid mistake. I wonder how long it will take for them to reintroduce the Phantom as their Retro or Classic Model??? Big Grin

Also agree about Raven. Not even sure where I stuck their new Eidolon. I stopped using it. I still use their Vanguard 2 minimalist holsters for my guns without lights.

I ordered an OWB holster from squared away for my 32 w/TLR-7.



Not minority enough!

Agree on the torsion holster from bravo concealment, its a great option.
I am a bit more happy with the vedder holster I also have. The vedder holsters have more customizable options, and just feels to be higher quality.
Vedder has options for gen 5 glocks, and you can also request accommodations for an extended slide lock.

These folks make a nice holster for a reasonable price. I am not familiar with all the light models but you may find one that works for your set up.
