Raven Concealment Systems Announces Perun Holster

Raven Concealment Systems has given first look at their new strong-side outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster to SSD. It is called the Perun, named after the Slavic war god.

The holster can be described as the best features of the Eidolon holster body merged with the body-hugging strong-side profile of the Phantom.


The holster body’s design, clearly based heavily on the Eidolon, significantly reduces the holster’s overall size, making it more concealable. This smaller profile is also more comfortable while seated in vehicles.


Because the body is ambidextrous, it comes with 1.5” belt-loops designed to allow left or right-handed shooters to configure it for either 10-degree cant or a 0-degree cant. This ambidextrous design philosophy has been present in all of RCS’s latest products (like the VanGuard 2, Eidolon, Morrigan, and Copia product families) and simplifies inventory for retailers and government clients because there is no need to try to forecast how many lefty holsters need to be ordered.


Unlike the Phantom (which it replaces in the RCS lineup) the Perun has an innovative adjustable retention slider that allows a uniquely crisp retention that is unmatched by other polymer holsters. Unlike the more traditional “screw-through-rubber gasket” style of adjustable retention, the Perun’s retention design allows easy tension adjustments that do not back off after repeated draws.


It is injection-molded of a polymer blend that is substantially stronger than Kydex or Boltaron, and allows it to remain functional after sustained exposure to high temperature levels that would cause Kydex holsters to lose their form.

The Perun will be available for pre-launch purchase on Black Friday, with units shipping in time to be under the tree for Christmas morning. The first three models it will be available for will be:

Glock 17 (Gen 5/Glock M and backward compatible)
Glock 19 (Gen 5/Glock M and backward compatible)
Glock 43

Following quickly thereafter, will be a Perun LC for:
Glock 19/17/34 + Streamlight TLR-1 HL
Glock 19/17/34 + Surefire X-300U

Followed quickly thereafter by (order subject to change based on .gov orders):
Sig P-320
Sig P-320 Compact
S&W M&P Shield 9mm (2.0 and backward compatible)
Ruger LC-9
1911 5” Government profile
Springfield XDS

The list will continue to have models added as units move through tool-up and into production.


Additional belt attachment options will also be unveiled in the coming months.

As with all RCS products, they are made in the USA and are backed with an unconditional lifetime warranty.

    Any word on a light bearing version, maybe for surefire’s new XH series lights? I like my masterfire, but having a concealed carry option without having to switch out to a different light would be nice.

  2. Bob says:

    Is it safe to assume the article meant to separate the m&p and the shield line?

  3. Marc says:

    So…it’s a bladetech eclipse?

    • Jim d says:

      I thought that too, but it looks far better executed. BT mailed it in on the mounting hardware so it’s not very close to the belt line, this seems to conceal better and seems far less snag prone than the Blade Tech. The material change is likely an improvement as well.

    • Ian says:

      I’m a long time Eclipse user. I’ve been using and testing the Perun for about a month now. It is nicer than the Eclipse. It is closer to the Total Eclipse than the classic Eclipse, but the polymer is better. It is more slick textured for a better release on draw, and the retention mechanism is very different and much better. It also accommodates an RDS better. My Total Eclipse doesn’t fit well with my G19 MOS with RMR but the Perun fits perfectly. The one advantage the Total Eclipse has is that it is convertible between OWB and IWB, but that might be made possible with the Perun in the future if they release mounting options for IWB.

  4. Adun says:

    Any chance the Glock 19 version of the holster has been tested with a CZ P10C? I could use a new light bearing OWB holster for it.

  5. Geoff says:

    I’m underwhelmed. I just don’t see much innovation in this.

    • PPGMD says:

      I’m more underwhelmed by the fact that even though they discontinued their Phantom series about 6 months ago, they couldn’t get all the attachments available at release. You would think that having at least one IWB attachment would be an extremely high priority.

      • Craig says:

        It’s designed from the eidolon holster. Basically if you want to carry iwb you would purchase the eidolon holster and if you want to carry owb you would purchase the perun

    • Jon C. says:

      You havn’t seen the price yet, which will be impressive. Also, the retention adjustment is the first one that doesn’t add any thickness but has a tremendous range of adjustment, and isn’t prone to coming loose.

  6. Timmy says:

    If the manufacturing is as good as it was on the Eidolon, this will be a great holster. Raven always knocks it out of the park with their fit, gun angles and even more importantly, their customer service. Without a doubt one of the best companies I’ve ever dealt with

  7. Evan says:

    I’m a religious RCS holster user with all of my guns but the lack of m&p holsters being released is frustrating. Ran a phantom and use the Morrigan (which are great) but all of the new and really innovative designs not being offered in m&p full-size or compacts for years… is getting old. Was told at shot 2017 to keep an eye out so maybe sometime soon.

    • RCSMichael says:


      Unfortunately, as a manufacturer, I have no choice but to prioritize design resources based on projected sales volume. In this case, we have Phantom and Phantom LC sales data that goes back to the launch of the S&W M&P. The sad truth is that if you combine the total sales of our holsters sold for M&P Full Size, M&P .45, M&P Compact, M&P .45 Compact AND all of the corresponding light compatible variants, that total is still LESS than, for example, the HK VP-9 (which has been on the market for a fraction of the time, and is just ONE model).

      M&P owners are always vocal, but they have not historically voted with their wallets. I’m not saying we won’t support the M&P family, but its place on the priority list is directly related to historical sales data.

  8. Andrew says:

    Any word on what the max front sight height this holster will accommodate is? I run a deltapoint pro and the front sight is pretty tall.

  9. Geoff says:

    Looking at the pic above, front sight area looks pretty big. I think they realize the popularity of RDS on pistols and the accompanying suppressor height sights.

  10. Hodge175 says:

    I would have to agree, I know for many the Glock is the flavor of choice. But not all of us are Glock only people. The lack of holsters for other very popular pistols like the M&P and the Sig P320 steers me away from many of these companies.

    • Jon C. says:

      They’re coming soon my man, I promise.

      It’s an OML for volumes and Glock always rides at the top.

  11. AlexC says:

    As a lefty I appreciate the ambidextrous aspect of this development.

    Thank you.

    • Jon, OPT says:

      That and the including of tiny upgrade loops is alone a great move for me as a retailer. As a beta tester the item’s performance, and simplicity are really good as well, I like this 10x more than my old Phantom.

  12. Kevin says:

    How quickly after the pre-sale will the light mounted version be available?

  13. Joe says:

    Maybe…you could get in board with the rest of the world and, ya know shoot a Glock?

  14. RoSpec says:

    RCSMichael – Any plans for a Roland Special version? Would a glock 17 LC x300U version work for a glock 19 and KKM comp with supressor height sights? Thanks much. Look forward to trying one as soon as they ship.

  15. Patrick says:

    Any idea on timing for a Sig P229 Legion with RMR?

  16. JK says:

    They just went live and are up for grabs. Just ordered me one.
