Default Don Hume Experts

I was looking at a break front holster at a pawn shop and was wondering if anyone could confirm that it is for a 4" K-frame based on the model number stamping. Really a nice looking holster in near new shape and it seemed priced pretty darned good at $30 too.
Below is a photo of the stamping on the back. It says:
Don Hume
Miami Okla
H900 No. 1-4
Adjustable
Sights

Anything anybody can tell me about it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

My Hume catalogs are from the ‘70’s and don’t list the H900 model. Category 1 is for the model 19 and other K frame revolvers, I believe the 4 indicates barrel length and the holster is clearly for a Combat Magnum or Masterpiece as it is stamped Adjustable Sights.
That’s all I could come up with.
Regards,

Call Don Hume and ask. I bought a box full of NOS JIT Slide holsters three years ago and a lady at Don Hume looked the numbers up for me and told me what model handguns fit them.

What a strange thing for a maker to do (mark a revolver holster 'adjustable sights'). Explainable; but strange.

Red's comment about the markings reminded me that I have a couple similar Don Hume holsters. These are H950s, though.... very similar construction with the spring closure. The 2" is marked "Adjustable sights" while the 3" is marked "Fixed sights."

Don Hume is total junk and does not stand up and are way overpriced! They don't even make most of their holsters today! Yup, you guessed it...Made in China! Let the buyer beware!

I havenít purchased or traded for a Don Hume product in three years; however, the few I own are well made and highly functional.

The name is still in business, yes. Not sure where it's made these days though but Don Hume was once the major player in LE leather gear!

Contact Us : Don Hume Leathergoods, manufactures high quality leather and nylon goods.

Mr. Hume passed a while back. But perhaps his grandson Jason Winnie can help?! I carry his gear every day.

Are Hume holsters made in Red China marked as such?

I have several Don Hume holsters and have always found them to be well made and reasonably priced. I have a couple that are over 20 years old that are still in very good condition and quite serviceable. I like 'em.

Donít have a clue as to their current status. But back in the 70ís and 80ís I wore a Don Hume Duty belt, holster, speed loader pouches and cuff cases every work day for years.
It was good leather gear, every bit as good as what I had in Bianchi or Safarialand. I still have a bunch of their holsters and occasionally use them.

I think its a good thing to do. There is a lot of difference in
how a gun with fixed rear sight and one wih adjustable rear
sight fit in the holster.

Don Hume was purchased by Oklahoma Leather. I think that
happened before Don passed on.

Based on my experience with those H950s, an adjustable-sight gun won't fit in the fixed sight holster. It's just that tight. These were new-old stock when I got them, and they're what I'd call heavy-duty construction. Not sure how old they are, but they were in great shape when they arrived.
