3" Model 624 .44 Special N frame in a Lobo gunleather IWB, held up by a Crossbreed 1.5" gunbelt. The holster is great but the belt makes the difference in wether this rig is comfortable or not.

Either way, you will be pleased.....Mernickle is a fine rig....not only that, my wife ordered my rig, and they treated her right. She didn't know a thing about what she was ordering, but they walked her through it...
My wife is very very pleased with their customer service....

Bob is good folks. I see him about once a year up here in Cheyenne.

Just wanted to bump a good thread & add to it. I just placed an order for a Simply Rugged Sourdough to carry my S&W Brazilian 1917 while hunting.

I don't own any short barreled "N" frames but I use a Bianchi X15 for my 6 in. M27 and 6 1/2 in. M29. By using shoulder holsters I don't have to worry about losing my pants. Larry

Default Years Gone By...

... I carried a Model 28 4" around in a Bianchi 5BH. I was young and poor and the two of them were all I had. I was on the Sheriff's Reserve and the 28 was my duty gun. The 5BH was my woods / CCW holster.
Both gone now and I wish I had them back (or at least the 28.)

I carry my 625 with 3" barrel in a Lobo Model 1 Pancake with Inner Hammer Shield, with Detailed Boning. I have also been carrying my 310 Night Guard with 2.75" barrel in this same holster till Ray gets me an Enhanced Pancake custom built for the Night Guard.

I also have an Enhanced Pancake on order for my 4" S&W Model 610.

I carry the steel N Frames with no problem. The 310 Night Guard N Frame Air Weight is fast becoming my favorite concealed carry piece however.

I prefer the pancake holster for revolvers for concealed carry. I like the Askens Avenger style for semi auto's.

3 and 4" 624s in the original (Gould and Goodrich) 624 holster
and the Mernickle previously mentioned. Both of these lay flat
on the waist and let the belt straight through without much bending.
I have tried (and returned) several pancake holsters that required
the belt to do some serious belly dancing to do its job.
These holsters you can wear the belt in its normal hole on the
buckle.




The Mernickle is an interesting and unique holster in that it is
the outer 3/4 of a duty holster sewn onto the back panel of a
pancake. It works wonders. Very comfortable. It also fits my
Mountain Revolver.

I use a Galco SB-5 1.75" belt. About the most belt you can fit in a
pair of jeans. Recommended.

I carry a S&W 310 Night Guard in a Lobo Gunleather pancake. This is my everyday carry gun and I love the gun and the rig. I actually bought a second 310 and a additional Lobo holster for it.

Default Just another thought is the model 624 or the 24 in SS.

The 24 or 624 was a 44 Special. Just a note I am selling the original vintage 1980's holster made by S&W for the 624 in 3 in black. They probably are big and heavy guns because they are n frame. I can see how shooting a 3" 29 or 57 with Magnum loads could be a nightmare. The muscle flash would not be contained in the barrel and I imagine you would see quite a flash outside the barrel when using Magnum loads and the kick would be very large making it difficult to hold. I don't imagine the people that have these could fire the magnum loads very long. I could see difficulty in even holding the weapon with the magnums. I wonder how long a 3" 41 or 44 Magnum would hold up to firing only magnum loads. Personally I could see how the N frame could be handling considerable stress when the barrel is so short. The kick would make rapid fire very difficult and subsequent firing slower with magnum rounds.

Default Question about an S&W holster for a 624?

I have a holster with the S&W label made by Galco for Smith and Wesson. The holster was intended for the 624 3" N frame but I have found that the holsters that fit the 624 also fit the other N frame 2 1/2" and 3" revolver. I am wondering whether this holster is going to have the same ability which is to fit other N frame guns like the model 629. Thanks.

If you have the Galco model number or style, go to the Galco site and search by gun model.

I *believe* an N frame is an N frame but it's been a while since I looked.

Good luck.

For a PC 627 UDR I use the Galco Combat Master. Rides high, but not so high you're hitting your armpit to draw. An even higher option is the Galco Silhouette High Ride pictured on page one of this thread. A DeSantis Thumb Break is a bit lower than the Combat Master, but will conceal under any light jacket and some shirts worn out, but in my opinion, you give up quite a bit of quality with the DeSantis when compared to the Galco.

i stuff my 57 into an old jackass shoulder rig with a double dump pouch on the other side. it works fine, and unless your very observant, hides well.

Default 629

Well I could not resist and a large local GS had a 629 6 inch and I bought it !!!

Well I reload everything I shoot now so I am using Hodgdon Titegroup. I load the .44 remington mag with 2 Loads: 4.7 grains for a "special" load and then 9 grains for a full magnum load .. 240 grain jacketed hollow points... speer. Well I love the thing and I DO carry it concealed , really!! In a right hand draw shoulder holster I bought off ebay. and it's not bad. on the right side are 2 pouches for speedloaders. Clearly I love the idea that anything I have to shoot will not recover but I will be honest getting it out of the shoulder and pointed, WEll it is a tiny bit slow. I am practicing doing just that, Hopefully, in an emergency, I will actually have a few seconds to drag it out. Also it's true though, you can shoot the .44 special loads all day, the magnum loads? Not so much!

I have 3 N frame snub nose revolvers, a 25 45 Colt, 629 44 mag and a 24-3 Lew Horton 44 and one L frame. I carry them in a Craft Holster iwb. It has an adjustment for the smaller L frame 686 357. It's a comfortable holster and I'm able to conceal it with a loose shirt in warm weather. Sometimes I'll carry it in their shoulder rig. I have it on right now with the 686 and had it on all day. The only thing I had added to it by a local shoe repair shop was a sweat shield to keep the gun grip away from my skin in the warmer weather when I don't ware a t shirt.

Aloha,

If all goes well, the Wife and I will be in Texas by end of summer.

At which time we both expect to have our CCW permits.

Carrying any firearm will be new to us.

We plan to OC on our property and concealed when out and about.

I have been watching these threads with great interest.

If nothing else, I'm admiring the leather and what goes in them.

N frame Smith & Wessons have been my choice for more than 10 lustrums........


3 1/2" barrel lengths are my preference.


I like em hung on a separate gun belt.







Or a carved holster on the pant belt for a more discrete carry,

Simply Rugged CID for my 21-4. Rides high and is hidden under a light jacket or shirt tail. This may not work for someone with, shall we say, a large build.

Maybe not the most concealable, but for driving and open carry I am another Mernickle cross-draw fan.
Got it off a forum member here as an experiment and is now a favorite after some break in.
So comfortable you forget that extra 3 lbs. on your waist.
This is a 696-1 in their holster and the Galco SB-5 belt.

Carry a 57 or 657 Mountain Gun once in a while... Usually use a DeSantis Speed Scabbard. Holds the gun high and tight to the body and has "ears" that protect ones clothes from the rear sight and hammer spur...

$50+-...hard to go wrong...

Here's something a little different. It's an ITP (In The Pants).
My 4" Model 29 .44 Magnum is in the pouch.
I got it from the Old Trading Post. About anything will fit in

Gunzuki - I think you just broke the record for digging up the oldest thread (almost 6 yrs) and bringing it back to life.


Back to topic - I have a Bell Charter Oak Grizzly Bear IWB for my 629pc.

I prefer IWB and generally use a Lobo like Roundgunner's last one pictured above. That style, with the snap straps help distribute the weight over a broader area across a good stiff belt and IWB keeps it in tight to the body. I carry Nightguards (325 & 329), 24-3 LHs, and also have one for 4" guns (29-2,3). I also sometimes use a Milt Sparks Summer Special for my 4" fixed sighted N frames 21-4, TripleLock, and HE-4th.

Too heavy for me. Used to carry an N-Frame as a backup during the winter under my uniform jacket in a shoulder holster. Even a 2" model 66 is too heavy for me in an OWB belt holster for only 6 shots off-duty. If I carry an N-frame in a belt holster, chances are, I'm on a mission..... Otherwise, I'd carry a full-size Glock or Sig with 2 extra mags for the same pain in the butt factor.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Rudy for a 10+ years, Black Hills Leather 956-712-9434. I have High ride OWB holsters for 629,57,500,19, plus derringers, double rig shoulder holster and all have been superb in workmanship and comfort. Photos of 500 SW, 4" . Be Safe,
