OK Chubbo,

The Colt is a 1957 Government with a hammer from one of the WW1 commemorative models. The handles are from Nutmeg.

The S&W is a 1963 K22, it's handles are old ivory.

Thanks, Now, I don't want to be a pest, but, I'm interested, how about the holster makers names?

The holsters aren't vintage, but the guns are. A study in N frame holsters by Dave Keith

The Lawrence 120 "Keith" is kinda purdy in it's simplicity. I tried to
enhance it a bit with the Navajo silver arrowhead. The Red Nichol's
Ranger belt helps too. Peacemaker replica. I keep thinking about
getting a real one, but when I look at the prices I just keep thinking.
Sharps Bowie hiding in upper left corner, and my Stetson of course.

Here's a nice barbecue rig made by Dave Keith, complete with our family brand on the holster.


Nothing fancy here, but a good serviceable rig by Rudy Lozano of Black Hills Leather


Again, not a fancy rig, but one that has seen many, many miles on horseback made by Dave Clowes of Dave's Saddle & Tack out of Bonanza, Oregon.


Another plain, but serviceable, rig from Black Hills Leather.

Sorry Chubbo,

The 1911 holster is supposed to be Myers, but there is no makers mark. I once saw a Lawrence holster that looked very similar.

The S&W holster is a Lawrence and is marked 27LF and 44 over 6 on the back. It was sold to me as a K holster, but as one would suspect it also fits a 6" N frame as well.

If I had to pick just one from my collection I would pick the Heiser #753 double buscadero. The condition is wonderful and I believe it is museum quality. Bill

The S&W, I would have guessed right. By my old favorite vintage maker, Lawrence. I wouldn't venture a guess on the 1911 holster, I am not familiar with unmarked Lawrence holsters, and my very limited Lawrence reference material shows nothing like it. Regardless of the maker, I'm sure it's by a vintage maker, and a real "Knock Out". It just"Makes My Liver quiver". Thanks for sharing them with us.
