5" J-frame revolvers are about as plentiful as hens' teeth, so I doubt that you will find a standard production holster. Most volume manufacturers concentrate their production capacity on the more common models.

For general use in the field, at the range, etc I would recommend my classic Tom Threepersons-style holster, which I can make for your 5" revolver.

If concealment is a concern I would recommend any of my pancake designs.

I carry mine in a hunter model 1100-9 it is a leather field holster that I ordered from there site the 1100-9 fits perfectly don't order the one they recomend for the model 63 because it is made for the 4 inch barrel but the 1100-9 fits the five inch perfectly you can find these on the cheap sometime at older gun shops

Check out LOBOGunleather, his holsters are well made and reasonably priced. Made to your spec's. I have three and wouldn't hesitate to buy more.

I have an awesome tan ElPaso Saddlery Thumb-break holster for that exact gun.
I've also got a set of "round to Square" Eagle heritage grips for that gun as well.
Both are like new condition.
Email me if you are interested and make me a reasonable offer.

somebody is selling one in the classifieds-from El Paso Saddlery for $50. I'd jump on that one.
