Default Oliver Bros. Flap

I recently found this little Oliver Brothers flap. It appealed to me on several levels. A well made Texas flap is always on my want list. It was presented to me as being for a J frame, but I played a hunch and found that a round butt K fits perfectly.

Regards,
Bruce

That’s a dandy little holster Bruce! It looks like there may be room for another inch of barrel?

Tim,
I suspect a 3" J frame would slip in there, but all I have are K's and N's.

They have a long history of leather work in Vernon and later Amarillo.

C.W. Oliver opened his first shop in Vernon 1917. Moved to Amarillo in 1960. His grandson and great grandsons still run the shop today. The oldest family owned saddle shop in Texas! Great article in Amarillo Globe-News from May 18, 2018.
