The Colt is current but the leather is vintage.

And you're sure an N frame won't fit in that holster? Is that the one that's marked OM6?

Both are marked OM , one is OM6 (507) and the other OM6 1/2 (511) . 507 takes an Officers Model target pictured and nothing larger . The 511 is a good fit for the .44 HE second model pictured with it . 507 must just have been miss marked. Couldn't get the other markings on the 511 to show in a picture .

Eddie

PS : I have the original grips for all the Smiths pictured but prefer the Magnas for use .

Well, let's keep it going. Here's a pair of S.D. Myres holsters, an early IWB holster and a Pink Simms model holster designed to be hooked to your suspender strap.

Another Texas maker, C.I. Tibiletti of Victoria, Texas.

Crazyphil aka Lucky-B gave me this holster and after removing an adaptor inside it that 'necked it down' to a K frame, it is clear it was made by Chic Gaylord to fit an N frame (the moulding into the cylinder flutes now matches, didn't on the K frame). It's made of two layers of thin horsehide, held together with stout nylon cord. Carry angle is precisely 32 degrees positive (i.e., pistol angled with the rear sight forward of the front sight).

I recently got a 1957 pre model 10 nickel 4" and added the stag grips. The S&W model 22 Basket weave size 34 holster looks like it was made for this gun.

I have had this 39-2 in nickel for a while. Recently I bought this Floral Carved S&W Model 11 holster for it so it is picture time.

Well Bruce, not only did you find one, you found a really nice one. I really like the color of that one. Lately, it seems to me, that when I am just about to give up on finding something, one will fall in my lap.

Great Western came into being when Colt announced that they would never bring back the Single Action Army revolver. However the popularity of "Cowboy Movies and Television" made Colt change their mind. Shortly after Great Western got started Colt announced that the SAA was coming back. This Great Western 45 Colt Sheriff or Store Keeper model with 3" barrel without ejector looks great in this Hunter Holster.

Well there was that, plus an obscure single action introduced in 1953.

I think it rhymed with “Luger” or something.

I have not seen many Model 15-2 38 Special Combat Masterpieces in 2" so I had to get it.


What about a holster. This Bianchi Model 13 can be worn on a belt and works well or can be worn on the shoulder strap that works better than it looks.

Prior to 1911 all 22 rimfire S&W revolvers were quite small. West Coast Dealer Philip Bekeart convinced S&W that if they used the 32 I frame and made a 22 LR target revolver he would buy a lot of them. Thus Smith & Wesson developed the 22/32 Heavy Frame Target or Bekeart model. I have one that was first shipped Jan 1917. I did not have a holster for it. Since the 22/32 Targets (model 35) were discontinued in 1973 holsters are not pleantiful. I got this H.H.Heiser Model 418 Holster in Reno.

I bought this FBI QUICK DRAW holster that came from EVALUATORS of QUANTICO, VA so it is quite possible that at one time it belonged to an FBI agent. My 38/32 Terrier fits it beautifully. Some day I might get the proper I frame grips. The Later S&W grips work fine.

Back in the 1980s my Police Duty plain clothes revolver was this S&W Model 13 3" modified to DA only. I needed a holster for under my jacket but did not have a proper holster. I had a couple of 4" holsters and took 1 and shortened it a bit. It worked fine for the type details that I worked.
