Default Glock w/ light holster - Sidearmor or Raven

I am looking for a Glock w/ light holster, the 2 that I nail down to are Sidearmor and Raven; similar in cost....

Anyone of you having "personal" experiences with these?

Or any other ones? This 2 seems to be the best fit for me...

I have a G19 w/ a TLR1.

I have had both and they are both good products but for me I give the edge to the Raven as I feel it's more comfortable and better for CCW. It wears more like a pancake holster and I prefer that. Also you can adjust how high or low it rides.

Good find. I have a similar setup(G23/TLR-1) as yours and wasn't looking forward to shelling out $200 for a Safariland 6004 although I'm sure it would be worth it. These look to be good alternatives.

Have you come to a decision?

Not yet...

Sidearmor - able to tweak the draw angle... maybe faster for IPSC type application

Raven - can be use IWB and OWB.... OWB for regular use, IWB for CCW use

Hey Jicko,
I have a Bladetech that arrived recently and ran it through a training day this weekend, worked nicely (I also like the fact I can use it for either a G19 or G17 with light).

But if also intended for CCW, the Raven definitely looks like the ticket.

BTW- except for a night match, why would you run your gun with its light mounted for IPSC?

For that exact setup, I bought the Safariland (both 6004 and 6280), and it's perfect!

I have a Safariland for my 1911 and one for my glock, but not with a light. I'm glad to see the 2 you put up as well, look like nice options. look forward to seeing what others say about them.

I have Raven holsters for two of my guns. I couldn't be more pleased with both the quality and the customer service. Highly recommended.
