This holster is exactly what I have been looking for in an everyday, no nonsense carry holster for my Glock 43. In all honesty I now carry every single day, as I should, because this holster makes it so easy. The price point is unbeatable on the market. The retention and quality are exactly what I expect from Raven. I have the Phantom and was expecting a similar holster, but the Perun seems to be slightly less rigid, which makes it MUCH more comfortable to carry - might just be me. It is extremely light and the belt loops fit my Filson belt perfectly, which isn't always the case as the belt is thicker than a standard dress belt. As far as drawbacks I will mention that the sweat guard extends up on both sides. I assume this is so the holster can be ambidextrous. I have noticed several times that my t-shirt will get caught on the outside piece of sweat guard. It isn't a huge deal, but is a slight annoyance. I will say that it makes reholstering very easy and secure as you can use the dual sweat guards almost like handrails to slide down into the holster. The ride is high and concealability is a breeze. I do not like inside the waistband carry, just isn't comfortable everyday, and this holster is the answer. I am very pleased with the quality at an outstanding price point. Highly recommend.
Perun OWB Holster Glock 43
The Perun is our flagship outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster. It is the result of blending the best features of two of our most popular holsters, the Eidolon and the Phantom, to create a highly refined, exceptionally concealable holster.
The Perun is designed to be the best modular OWB “pancake” style holster on the market. It has a body-hugging design that rides high for maximum concealment. The body of the holster is only slightly larger than the pistol contained in it. This small size aids in concealment while also making the holster more comfortable while seated in a vehicle.
The body-hugging curvature of this holster is accomplished using modular belt loops. Each holster includes three pair of 1.5” belt loops (LH 10 degree cant, RH 10 degree cant, and ambi 0 degree cant), which allow the end-user to configure the ambidextrous holster body for left-handed or right-handed use, with either a 0-degree or 10-degree cant.
Retention in the Perun is crisp, defined, and consistent, thanks to innovative design features inside the holster body. The unique retention slider makes adjusting retention as simple as turning up the volume on your stereo. And unlike other holsters that use the traditional “screw through a rubber grommet” style of retention, the Perun’s retention will not back off after repeated drawing and re-holstering.
The Perun is compatible with most slide-mounted red-dot optics (like the Aimpoint T-1, Trijicon RMR, etc.) and accommodates suppressor-height front sights up to .350” tall. It is also fully compatible with the RCS Balor optic mount.
The muzzle-end of the holster is rounded for comfort, yet has an opening sufficient to accommodate most common after-market extended and threaded barrels (with thread protectors). The opening at the muzzle is also specifically designed to allow foreign objects (like spent casings) to drop out the bottom so that nothing can block your pistol from being safely re-holstered.
The ambidextrous holster body has both inboard and outboard full-height body shields. These body shields offer some protection for your pistol from sweat, as well as protecting your skin and cover garments (especially the thin material used for linings in sport coats and suit jackets) from being abraded by the serrations on the rear of the slide. They also enhance safety by helping keep cover garments and other foreign objects from falling into the mouth of the holster while you have your pistol drawn, and aid in proper, safe muzzle orientation during re-holstering.
The holster is injection molded from a proprietary, extremely high-strength polymer blend that is significantly more durable than Kydex or Boltaron. Like all RCS products, it is made in the USA, and is backed by our lifetime warranty.
*Legacy belt attachments are NOT compatible with the Perun holster.
