Here's a Brauer Brothers holster that fits a wide range of J frames- this was a gift from forum member Watchdog.

Strapless Bianchi.

This one is marked "Almar New York "

An unusual Berns-Martin holster for a 2" J frame.

Another odd holster made by Western Saddlery in Tampa, Florida.

El Paso Saddlery cross draw.

I don't have this holster any more but I think it was a Gaylord.

I've always had J frame revolvers and have found a lot of holsters for them over the years.

turnerriver
This is the one I intended to get in the above post John.

Yes, Null does the 'upside down' stitching, too; but notice at the welt seam that Ken has incorporated a 'welt effect' by stitching 'round the frame in front of the trigger guard, which neither Chic nor Paris did (but the amount of 'pinch' it would add for retention would be nominal, so it's largely a styling exercise). Makers often look for a 'point of difference' in stitch patterns, such as welt and belt loop areas. In that way they become like MacDonald's 'golden arches': it's a clue to tell a consumer what to expect as to the quality of the source.

There were belt loops that snap on with 6 rounds and dump pouches with 6 rounds sometimes with spaces for two rounds each. These were less noticeable on the belt if your jacket flapped in the wind. These days when I carry a revolver in plainclothes, I use both types and a Speed strip in the right front pocket. I carry a 640 in my front left pocket or in a Buchiemer Clark Sheriff model, which is similar to the Lewis Police Special. I carry a 19 2 1/2 in either a Kramer, a Galco, or an old school Bianchii FBI tilt holster. I went on the job in SoCal in 76. Lewis holsters and Buchiemer Clark were routinely seen on the plainclothes folks.

Is the Colt "D" frame the same as a "J" ?
I picked this Myres up recently and don't have anything that fits it.

Bruce

Bruce, the Colt "D" frame is between the Smith and Wesson "J" frame, and the "K" frame. It is a six shot 38 Special, but slightly smaller than the "K" frame six shot. For example, most of my "J" frame holsters will not accept a Detective Special, as it is very slightly larger, but my Galco pocket holster will hold either one, since it has a more generous cut.

Best Regards, Les

Thanks Les,
This one was priced so cheap that I put myself in a "buy first, ask questions later" situation. 😊

Regards,
Bruce

Holsters made for Detective Special accept a Ruger SP101 purty good.

Bruce, I sold you that one on GB.

Now you need to find a Colt DS showing some wear but unfortunately I can't help you with that.
