Beautiful gun, holster and picture! I don't have a .38 OMT yet, and getting one is high on my list. I know they are terrific shooters. (Plus they are just so darn easy on the eyes!)

The holster is vintage? Or is it new from a Heiser pattern? (Don't know much about holsters.)

The Heiser holster is about the same vintage as the revolver-the black & gold three H snap was used pre-WW II.This is a top of the line Heiser-chamois lined,rawhide whipstitched edge lacing & full Mexican hand carved finish.The OM fits it perfectly.
Thanks & regards,

John,
Very nice OM and Heiser. Picture looks great. I finally found an OM two months ago, same vintage 1937. These are really great revolvers in fit and finish. Keep the pictures coming!

John,
That's a gorgeous gun, holster AND photo!
I love my HB (it's from 1936), and marvel at the quality and smooth action produced before the days of CNC machining!
Congratulations!
Don
