Default HOLSTER ADVERTISING

I learned in business that a good advertisement does 3 things:
1. Get Attention
2. Create Interest
3. Urge Action

Well, I was surfing on the Bay and came across a Mexican carved and laced holster. Carved and laced always gets my
ATTENTION.

I read that it was made for a 2" Python or Trooper. I don't have
either, but I have S&W's model 10 with 2" barrel. I looked at the dimensions and thought that would be close enough. They said it was made in Mexico (and there is a very small stamp on the back that says Mexico) but no maker mark. I was 99.9% sure that it was made by Reyes. I was INTERESTED.

I would not be able to be available at the auction ending
so I ACTED. I pulled the trigger on the Buy Now option.

I think Python and Trooper are probably 2.5" not 2" like my
S&W because there is a little wiggle room, but not too bad.

Here it is:

Yes, those Colts have 2.5 inch barrels, but your basic issue is that this holster is for an L-frame gun if also meant for those Colts!

Try a 2.5 inch M-686. Should be the right fit,

Texas Star beat me to it. Lot of my 4 and 2.5 686 holsters were made with a Python mold.

BTW I didn't mention the holster is lined with red suede.
Different, but nice.
