Default RADAR Holsters... (Part 1: 4" N-Frame)

There was a question about RADAR Holsters in this GREAT Show your knives and revolvers! THREAD (Page 3,
posts #122-125). So -as promissed- a bit more information:

RADAR is an Italian Company, founded in 1957. Today one of the biggest European Holster-Makers:
Police duty gear, gun holsters, military supply, army equipment | RADAR 1957


"Before the Internet" I knew them only from (paper)catalogues, here is a link to the newest one
(Sorry, only in German, but at least you can scroll through the pictures...)
400 Bad Request
My first thoughts: Elegant looking (their Leather-things !) Holsters. Italian Design, as Ferrari, Benelli,
Beretta...(FIAT ?). Hmm...


Someday I had the chance, to get one for a very good price. My first RADAR

with M 29-2 + HOGUE ROSEWOOD:






IMHO with the Strong Side / Cross Draw Option a very universal OWB - Holster.

But with all due respect, P.44 -- what would Radar have done if they hadn't had a Bianchi #5B to copy? It is excellence in Italian design, but by the Italian named John Bianchi :-).

Hello Red,
of course you are right !
In this case (BIANCHI ./. RADAR) at least it "stays between the Italians" ...

My old computer "broke down" and typing on on a tablet (or even worser on a smart-phone) is -at least for me- a bit "like driving an
Alfa Romeo with thick winter-boots". Therefore the last months I was "more in reading than in posting something". Still trying to
rescue some older pictures.


So here / at the moment only one question:
When -and how, eventual a signed exemplar ?- can we get your book ?

Just seeing on your homepage...obviously you are still working on it....and just found (post#16) Old Bianchi Breakfront... I was
interested in something like this since March 2016...

Thanks in advance + Always the Best
Peter
