Default Who makes Western holsters for 686?

I would like to get a good Western style holster and belt with cartridge loops for my 686. Do you know of anyone that makes good quality ones?

El Paso Saddlery make some excellent Western holsters for modern double actions.
Many of these are made to the same pattern El Paso made in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

Quality is up there.

I agree and highly recommend the "Austin" for your 686.

Look up Mernickle on-line. They specialize in western holsters, but will work with us double-action guys. The made me one for a 2 1/2" 66 and a 3" 65. I love them.
