Default Holster for Square Trigger 5903

I'm so new to this S&W brand. I tried searching, but couldn't find anything clear cut or current. I have an early 3rd Gen 5903 with a square trigger guard. does anyone else here have a square trigger friendly holster or know where I can get some?

Also, my gun came with 14 round magazines. What brand or where can i get 15 round mags?? Aftermarket support seems so limited for these antiques

Thanks in advanced

Finding holsters for the square trigger guard can be difficult. I like the Don Hume Double Nine (H721-5M) holster.
Factory magazines are currently on sale at MidwayUSA.
You can change the black follower to the orange follower in your current magazines giving you 15rd capacity (also available at MidwayUSA).

I'll second the motion for the H721. I think it also comes in an open top version, but I'm not 100% sure. Either way, it's a very nice way to carry a full size 3rd Gen.

Try Lobo Gunleather for a holster. I had them make a holster for my round trigger guard 5903 and if I remember right they had a square trigger guard option as well.

Antiques???

Being a LEO in CA, I guess you are not limited to 10-rounds or "pre-bans" only or any other such nonsense. Brand new S&W OEM 15-rounders are available from MidwayUSA... but wait for a sale. They go on sale quite often.

Default Bianchi 105

This is a Bianchi 105. It's surprising the number of firearms that ride well in it, including your guns uglier step sister, the 5903 with giant trigger guard and Dumbo ears.

I might have one and if I find it I'm happy to let you have it. PM me to remind me to look for it. I am pretty sure I acquired one way back at the commencement of the high-cap ban, when I acquired my 5903 SSV, but since I never shot it or carried it (my only true safe queen) I am not 100% sure I can find it but I am happy to try.

I have a 659 with the square trigger guard and those handsome dumbo ears. I have a Galco CM244. Their website shows it fits the 5903TSW also. I love the look and fit of this holster.

Try looking for holsters for SIG 228/229. They have very similar frame and trigger guard shapes. I have been using a Galco for my 5906 and a Bianchi for my 6904 (and a few marked 220 for the 4506).

I was looking for the similar info a while ago - square trigger 5904 and 6906.

I would say check holsters that are for Sig P226. Also holsters pop up on Ebay occasionally for the square trigger 3rd gens.

6906 Holster Recommendations - All types

Great news!! I found a beautiful Don Hume duty holster on EBay for $15 shipped! It's polished and looks great, very slightly used. It fits my 5903 pretty tightly. I just have to leave the gun in there to break it in more. Just need a pancake holster or OWB now.
