    Finally, after months of waiting I received an email this week that production has begun on my Raven Concealment holster for my Full Rail TRP with light attachment. I hope to have it in hand in about 2 weeks. I've been dying to carry this bad boy! I hope its as comfortable as i've heard. Ill be carrying it mostly OWB on the ranch for when i go hog hunting. Pictures will be posted as soon as it comes in :thumb:

    Cool man. I can't believe how back up they are. When I had ordered mine, back in early 2010, it was 8 weeks.

    Not a 1911, but I liked how it carried my M&P9. Rides pretty close to the body and secure too. Their mag carriers are nice too, I have them too.

    I have been on the look out for a Raven for awhile just to try out. Almost bought one for a gun I don't even own before...

    They make a great holster. I had one for my M&P. Been using a few different quality knock offs that have been very good plus no long wait.

    ^ Cane & Derby is on my hit-list, as are Atomic Dog, Peters Custom, and a couple of other Kydex makers.

    I wanted to try another make for my light-enabled holster, but ended up placing an order with Raven because I really like the Phantom that Quack sent me home with, when I bought his XDm9. I've been using it as my main class holster for the past year, and it's been absolutely fantastic.

    I still can't get used to it IWB, though. It's just too large of a footprint for IWB comfort, with my body. I have a Garrett Silent Thunder Slim II (IWB) that I use with my Kahr PM9, which is super comfortable for even extended driving, but that's about as big as I will ever go, I think, with a full-Kydex hardshell.

    Even OWB, it conceals exceptionally well.

    Looked at a few other manufacturers as well but very few were able to make one for a full rail 1911.

    I got the Raven in today. I like it a lot. Its a bit tight in certain spots and I had to do a little bit of trimming for it to fit the bulky adjustable on the the TRP. For some reason i cant upload pictures right now but i will as soon as i figure out whats wrong

    Looks like i may need to put a Harrison rear on the TRP as well, this adjustable is damn sharp.

    My Raven Phantom is my most liked holster for carrying a 5" steel 1911. HOWEVER, it is really tough on all my 1911 finishes. I will not use on my blue gun. I do use on my SS, but it has scratched (lightly) the finish. Is this unique to me/my pistols/my holster or is this the curse of kydex?

    ^ It's not really the Kydex, per-se, but rather, what's trapped in/on the Kydex.

    Since all my guns are currently all range/defensive guns, I don't mind the scratches - it just adds character. :smile:

    Something I`ve noticed with these Raven like Kydex holsters is alot of them have fully molded bottoms which are sealed .
    That helps keep the dust and debris in the holster . You can asked these makers to have the muzzel end open but still keep the slide
    covered !
    Just something I`ve noticed !

    ^ Ravens should have an open bottom.

    Actually, it's semi-open bottom. Here's a Raven Phantom that I had sold for a commander 1911. Notice the small bulge, it's a small opening, directly at the muzzle area.

    I'm sorry bud, not all of us can have BIG bulges.

    ^ :smile: :wink: For me, it's either open, or it's closed.

    But yes, the opening is small - more like a slot.
