Drawing from it is easy. You can pull either striaght up. or pop it through the spring. I haven't got reholstering down pat quite yet,but figuring out how these vintage holster were supposed to work is part of the fun.
I love to get the Sheriff ofr my DS and the 4 inch OP, and a Lewis for the 6 inch OPs.
There is more than one version of the "Sheriff" style, which appears to have originated with Clark, the predecessor company to Bucheimer-Clark; or Lewis, the latter being best known:

Leather Personal protective equipment Arm Leg Footwear
Black Footwear Leather Boot Shoe
Antique Metal Sculpture


As you can see, the pocket was sometimes omitted.

For some reason the Forum image system doesn't care for my pic of the Clark (floral) with the pocket :-( so it's missing from this post. Note that the Lewis spring doesn't reach the top of the cylinder pocket, while the Bucheimer-Clark and Clark versions do; and that the last black Lewis image uses an entirely different spring and styling more commonly associated with crossdraws such as Safety Speed (but never found with pockets). I have a 6" version of this one in my own collection.
