over and out
Raven would be the closest but I think you are going to have a very hard time finding a holster that will fit both guns.
Blade-Tech shows a IWB w/light holster. I didn't go through all their options so don't know if one will work for your situation.
I will PM you a guys number, from Portland, that will make you exactly what you want out of kydex and leather. He may already even make one, he does a lot of IWB with lights. He does great work. I can play basketball with my Glock 19 and never know it's there. He should be able to do it in a week or so for under $100 in guessing.
Have you considered getting a small toaster over, some Kydex sheet, some rivets and a few cutting tools and custom molding a kit yourself? I've been intrigued by it since I watched a video on making Kydex "custom" holsters.....
You maybe hard pressed to find one holster that fits both the 17 and 19 and also the x200 and x300...thinking out loud unless the length difference is only in the slide and both frames are the same size it might be doable. Again depending on the lights being the exact same size.
As above Raven will be good and you will be waiting.

After hours of reading about DIY Kydex, it is just what I did.
My most recent examples
VERY NICE... now THAT'S what I'm takin' 'bout!
Ah ha!! So you admit it... yer just skeert of a little DIY!
Im interested in that contact as well. I've been making all my own gear for years, but now Im selling all my kydex fabricating equipment (downsizing into a studio apartment) and I can already forsee I'm going to be in need for some custom gear in the very near future.
Check out Whitehat holsters
How long does this take, where do you get the materials? Do you need to be an engineer with a garage full of tools to do it? I am interested!
Pretty simple really, especially if you have some fabrication background (Jr. High wood shop would count). Small 1 x 42 belt grinder, hand drill, rivet press, toaster oven, and Kydex forming foam and press. Check out Knifekits.com, they have everything. Watch some you tube videos and go to work. Trial and error are your friends. Kydex is very forgiving.
So I have decided to give making my own a shot. Are there any tips you are willing to share, material thickness, eyelets thickness, or any helpful tips? Been watching some of the youtube videos and I am excited to give it a try! Between myself and one of my buddies we are going to equip ourselves and have a good time learning.

Ever since I started using these holsters, I have no desire for any other brand.
