    I get my holsters from gun shows. Usually look for lined El Paso Saddlery ones. Often can get a nice one for under $50. And the gun show day is more or less enjoyable too.

    I saw that Lawrence and Eubanks were suggested as well as Heiser. Any would be great. Here's a Eubanks with an early 6-inch Colt 3 5 7.

    bmcgilvray, that is a very cool Eubanks holster. I have a bunch of them and have never seen that particular style before. What are the markings on the back ? I have several No. 87's which are for revolvers, several No. 89's which are for automatics, used to have a No. 90 which was a full flap model for medium frame revolvers and the only one I have seen of a No. 50 which is oak leaf carved for a revolver. I think the Eubanks holsters are very under appreciated by collectors.

    Here's the best of several bad photographs I took of the marking when I photographed the holster.



    I agree with you Walter Rego. A couple of Eubanks holsters live here and they are first rate, excellent quality and workmanship and still serviceable though over 60 years old. The other Eubanks is a flap holster I had acquired years ago and represented as to fit a 4-inch Colt Official Police. Turned out to fit 5-inch N-Frame Smith & Wessons.

A old Triplelock with factory target sights added in 1949 and a 1950 Target also .44 special made in the mid 1950`s. Its just hard to pay a hundred or two for a holster I wont use but nice to have.
    It would be hard to improve on a vintage Lawrence or Heiser flap holster, Mexican carved, for your classics. When you remember that it's the revolvers that are the holster accessory, not the other way 'round :-). I doubt one would pay much less for a vintage Bianchi #16L yet the first two are so much more beautiful. Turnerriver has posted impeccable examples of both Lawrence and Heiser flaps with carving in the past; no modern maker has ever equalled them (Lawrence is uniquely of the Sheridan style of carving). But they aren't cheap and shouldn't be.
