Default Custom holster maker relatively close?

John Power is in the last stages of gunsmithing my Freedom Arms Model 97 revolvers. Both are being altered to a form closer to a target version of a Bisley configuration. Substantial changes in hammer and front sight has caused my 7X Leather holsters to no longer fit the revolvers.

I bought Bianchi CD-127 and CD-128 for them. I don't have a lot of confidence these will function correctly with revolvers' non-standard configuration. Unfortunately, I am nearly certain no off-the-shelf cross-draw holsters will fit if the CDs do not.

To have a holster made for either, I think I'll need to furnish the revolver. And this is part of my problem. I would rather not drive to Ennis, Montana, to have Wes Daems of 7X make holsters. His work is excellent. His distance at my age (and decrepitness) is what I prefer to avoid.

I am in Missoula County in extreme west-central Montana. If anyone can recommend a holster maker in my area, I will appreciate the contact information.

It's not far over to Florence, Montana where you can find Rick Bachman.
He does business as rick@oldwestreproductions.com I haven't contacted
him for years, but last I knew he was still there and one of the best.

Fan-tastic! Florence is just on the other side of Missoula. I've been pretty much locked down my ex-wife is bigger, tougher, and meaner than I am, and she insists. All I needed to do was to reread Packing Iron. All I need to do is wait for Mr. Power.

I don't think it's betting on the come to say, "Problem solved."
