I was asked by a forum member to post these pictures of a Hank Sloan HS-7 with my Model 10-5 4" in this thread. I hope this is of benefit.

Default Bucheimer Concealer as used by FBI

The owner of these two gave me permission to use his pictures ...

For fans of the Bucheimer Concealer holster, two holsters in the FBI style - with covered trigger and front slot, as issued with the 3 inch S&W Mdl. 13 and as worn by Jodie in The Silence of the Lambs. Silence of the Lambs, The - Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games





I read the model/size stamping as 01 604 15 Patent 4,062,481



A second holster in poorer condition but with a better view of the front slot.


Patent 4,062,481 http://www.google.com/patents/US4062481 Inventor Earl J. Clark, Tandy Brands.



Disclosed herein is a holster for pistols having an improved belt loop assembly. A pair of belt loop assemblies are connected to opposite sides of the gun receiving pocket. Each assembly has an inner piece of holster material containing a slot for the reception of a belt. An outer piece free of slots is joined to the inner piece at the top and bottom, defining a belt receiving opening on the outer edge in communication with the adjacent slot.
A pin depends from the loop that fastens the pistol in the holster for locking shrouded revolvers in place (Item #45 in the patent drawing.)

The application gives reference to “One holster of this type is described in U.S. Pat. No. 3,731,858, issued to [Roy] Baker on May 8, 1973.”

Sorry, no size chart.

Here are a couple of Bucheimer "semi-shoulder" holsters, one with the usual spring type holster, and one with the less common holster, which is more of a traditional pouch type holster.

Also, here is my Buchemier FBI holster, together with the Buchemier 2x2x2 pouch issued to agents at the time. The Model 13 is property of a friend, but we got together for a photo shoot!

Finally, here is an article on the FBI Model 13 from 1982.

Excellent thread!!!

Chad's picture showing the adjustable strap would suggest a universal fit holster - or at least a multi-fit holster. Or - 4 inch J frame.

Need info on Bucheimer holsters please.

Default Bucheimer Clark Co. B3LW-52

GREAT INFO here.

Wanted to show you a holster, see Title, I acquired in 80s when I got a M10.

It does not have belt loops or a clip. It slides over a belt. It is right handed with a slight forward tilt. My M642 is a bit large for it, so maybe for .32?

Ideas welcome. Thanks!

Well, the chart shows the number 52 is for either a S&W 2½ inch Combat Magnum or a 5 inch N frame. Same for variations 152 or 520.

Not helpful if your J frame is too big.

Goes to show how many gaps still exist in the list.

Default Bucheimer Speed Loader

Bucheimer marketed - Salinas Industries made [ht linde] - may be the same as the Feather Touch. 1964. Contemporary tests graded it down for retention when dropped, but a perfectly serviceable loader. Pictures by Linde

Default Need help with Bucheimer #43 "holster"?

Hello all,
O.K just back from a flea market with a new treasure! The only problem is it's not in any of the catalogs???? This is an early Bucheimer with the large "b" and "Since 1884"........plus the # 43. The catalog lists the 43 as being for a .38 Colt snub ( I am trying to remember???). I am adding photos to show my Mod 60 stainless and a NAA .22 LR for comparison. I thought when I first saw this it was a sheath for a pair of 6" cutters, but when I turned it over and saw the old Bucheimer mark I bought it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks and God bless. cordell

Holder for a ticket punch, etc.

P.S. Still a neat item. Can't be many of them out there.

As mentioned elsewhere: This thread needs more shoulder holster pictures.
Bucheimer, Clark and Bucheimer-Clark made an amazing variety of shoulder holsters styles. And then there's the one some guy wore in a movie...

Here are a few that are in my photo files:

Two of them are Clark's. Do we know for certain when Clark Holster became Bucheimer-Clark, which stayed in Los Angeles while J.M. Bucheimer continued in Maryland? I have roughly dated that as 1962 in my head. . ..

I picked up this Bucheimer 189-42 on eBay Australia for about $20 AU. The seller didn't have much in the description as to what revolver it would fit. I intended to use it for my S&W Model 15-2 when competing in a Combined Services Match that is shot out here. It seems a little lose and checking the charts, 42 appears to be for a Colt Detective Special or a S&W M28 Highway Patrol. Can anyone confirm this for me please? 189 does not appear on the charts also. Why is this? Many thanks. Moo Moo

I'd bet on the N frame for the 189-42. As stated .. the list is incomplete.

My 1953 digital copy doesn't show Clark at all, illustrating that GD is not perfectly inclusive or always accurate.
The 1953 list is interesting. Roseberry???

It seems a little lose and checking the charts, 42 appears to be for a Colt Detective Special or a S&W M28 Highway Patrol. Can anyone confirm this for me please? 189 does not appear on the charts also. Why is this? Many thanks. Moo Moo
N frame (such as the old M28) for sure with the corroborating info of the K frame being a bit loose. Even the scale of all the bits says N frame :-)
