    hey guys. wandering about adding a streamlight to a glock 19. raven holsters work great iwb for my kahr pm9, but i feel much more better with my glock. raven has a quick ship holster for the glock 19 with a streamlight for iwb carry. anyone use this set up or is it too much to conceal iwb. thanks

    Just about zero applicability for ccw, but if you feel compelled to carry a mounted light in your waistband for some reason, raven isn't bad.

    For my G19 I have the insight M3X and use the Fobus M3 holster. Allows you to carry the M3X next to your spare mag for night time use if needed.

    I went this route over looking for a gun/light specific holster. With so many light options these days, a simple light change, and that holster no longer works.

    Insight has many choices in the M series lights, lasers, LED, etc...

    Do they even still make M3X's? Note that holsters that accommodate M3 lights do not necessarily also accommodate an M3X. If you want current technology, look at the TLR-1. Though good for home defense, there's little reason for a mounted light for ccw. That said, a mounted light is just that. Don't fool yourself and think that, in a life or death situation, you will be mounting your light in situ.

    Yes they do.

    The M3 holster may fit other insight lights, it appears they really haven't changed the rail attatchment design or the rocker switch on the back.
    Wish I knew people close to me with a wide variety of lights to test this.

    Insight appears to be the only light that has an optional holster. Uncle mikes, Fobus, Blackhawk all support the Insight M series

    Now, Blackhawk makes a dual rail holster made for the M series light but it may accomodate a wider variety of lights.

    Yes the M3X has slightly larger dimensions than the M3,
    Which points out my reasoning on giong with the light holster option over a gun/light specific holster. A simple light change can render an expensive holster useless.

    M3
    Dimensions: 3.4" L x 1.57" W x 1.52" H

    M3X
    Dimensions: 3.4”L x 1.6”W x 1.6”H

    I have a Comp Tac C-tac holster for the G19&TLR-1. I carry this combo occasionally during the summer at night. I just picked up and Aker paddle holster for my P226&TLR-1 this week. So far I am pleased with both holsters. If you can take some night time defensive shooting courses.

    A handheld light is much more practical, for many reasons. My 4Sevens light clips to the bottom of my Safariland 123 horizontal mag carrier. It's a much better (brighter and wider cone) light than any weapon mounted light too.

    for the past week i have been carrying a Glock 19 with a TLR-1 attached in a Ravens Concealment holster. i carry it OWB and just wear a light jacket and it conceals great! and its very comfortable.
