Default HEISER'S STYLE NUMBER CODE

I know this subject has been visited before, but to me it is
still just about as clear as mud. I'm referring here to the
3 digit style code. Not the code for the gun that fits the
holster.

Here's what I think I know:
The FIRST digit identifies the finish.
4 = smooth
5 = basket weave
7= carved floral
8 = rough side out (maybe)
9 = lighter weight leather

The SECOND digit identifies action type.
0, 3, 5, etc. odd numbers = revolvers
2, 4, 6, etc. even numbers = semi-automatics

The THIRD digit makes absolutely no sense to me at all.

I thought 3 might mean those with a skirt, but then found
some without.
I thought 9 might mean those with the hammer shield, but
then found some without.
I thought 8 might be inside the waistband, but the 718 is
obviously not for iwb.
I thought maybe 2 meant the holster was lined, but no.

Has anyone cracked the code? If so, please share what
you know.

Phil, I'm away from home and don't have access to my reference material but a fourth number prefix 1 or 2 indicates something added to a model such as lining, edge lacing or even nickel spots. I'll look when I get back and see what I have.
Regards,
