Light-Compatible Raptor

Ships in 1-4 weeks

The Light-Compatible Raptor Holster is an innovative solution for carrying a firearm with a weapon light inside-the-waistband (IWB). It features variable retention so you can adjust the fit to achieve your preferred draw. The LC Raptor comes with two different attachment clips that are mounted at zero cant, optimized for appendix carry. Our Raptor Claw is also installed, which pulls the grip tighter to the body and conceals the firearm more effectively. The Claw can be removed for more comfortable 3-6 o’clock carry.

Includes a Raptor Claw, IWB Quick Clip, and IWB Tuckable Clip.

The Light-Compatible Raptor only works when a weapon light is mounted to the firearm. For the non-light-compatible-version of this holster, click here

To accommodate a slide mounted optic, like the Trijicon RMR or Leupold Deltapoint, choose “Optic Cut” under options.
If I take the light off my pistol, can I still use this holster?
Negative. The retention of light-compatible holsters is based on the light. So if the light is not present on the pistol, there is virtually no retention and nothing prevents the pistol from sliding deeper into the holster than it should. At which point the draw is very difficult.
Can you wear this holster and tuck a shirt in over it?
Yep! The shirt can be tucked behind the clips. The clips will be visible over your belt.
I’m… larger. Can I wear this holster?
It’s difficult to give a simple yes or no answer to this question, because everyone is a little different. However, there are lots of larger folks who use and like the Raptor. Whether or not it works for you depends on what you wear, how tight your belt is, and your personal preferences about comfort. 
How tight can this Raptor get?
While the light-compatible Raptor won’t be as tight as a regular Raptor due to the weapon light compatibility, it can still be adjusted to be pretty tight. The particular weapon light the holster is made for can also affect overall retention. Retention can also be affected by being on/off the body and under a belt; so when your Raptor arrives, be sure to test on the body and play around with the screws.
Which shirt guard height do you all recommend?
We recommend the mid guard. It helps with re-holstering, helps keep your shirt out of the holster, and once the pistol is removed won’t jab your stomach as much as a high guard.

Different ways the Raptor can be adjusted:

Retention:Two screws beside the trigger guard side can tightened or loosened to either add friction or click. Be sure to test this on-the-body, as belt can affect retention.  Just play around with them to find that sweet spot.

Ride height: the Raptor comes with two clip options. The quick clip (pre-installed) adds stability but cannot be adjusted or allow for cant. The Tuckable Clip provided can be mounted and adjusted using the two screws below the Raptor Claw for different ride height.

Grip tuck: The pre-installed Raptor Claw can be placed in different depths on the holster, to pull the grip to  or from the body, or altogether removed. If carrying elsewhere than appendix, the claw can be removed.


Raptors can be ordered with three heights of guard in the back. The guard aids in reholstering and keeps some sweat off of the slide. Low, mid, and high shirt guard heights are shown here.

All Raptors come standard with a Raptor Claw, which you can customize to your preferred depth in order to best conceal your handgun. Shown here are three different Claw depths on Shield Raptors.
