Default 686P 5 inch barrel holster search

I love my new 686 with its 5 inch barrel...but I am pulling my hair out trying to find a holster to fit it.

I can find holsters for a 4 inch 686 (lots) and some for a 6 inch, can anyone point to one that is specifically for a 7 shot 686 with a 5 inch barrel?

I'd really like to avoid a generic "fits any large revolver" kind of holster, nylon or otherwise, just cause they're ugly.

I have a number of sourdough holsters from:

Leather gun holster, concealed carry holster - Simply Rugged Holsters? - Proudly made in the USA

These holsters are top notch in my opinion and sell for around 70 USD. Send in an order for what you have and a few weeks later a package comes with your rig.

I'am looking for a holster for a 32 caliber S&W long revolver. A vintage S&W holster would be nice but new right handed holster I would also look at. It has a 4 1/2" barrel and the revolver was manufactured in 1903.

Default Craftholster for S&W 986 w/5" barrel

This place can make you a leather holster in 4 to 6 weeks designed for the S&W 986 with 5" barrel:
Comfortable Leather Belt Holster | Craft Holsters(R)
I'm guessing it would fit a 586 or 686 with a 5" barrel, too.
Price is shown as $62.95 as of 9-29-17

If function is more important than form, Blade Tech makes their Classic OWB holster for the 5" 686+. The Simply Rugged is nice but they are not tightly boned, more like a leather envelope or sandwich.

Adios,

Pizza Bob
