What would you Cobra experts recommend as a good quality leather OWB holster for your Colt Cobra?
Yes and no. The 5 was originally a strapless revolver holster, the 5A was the version for autos. The 'B' was to differentiate it from the first two, and indeed is the thumb snap. Yes, the 'H' is for the high ride version, though we did not apply it to the 19 auto holster when I converted it to the high ride belt loop created for the 5BH. The straps were added to the original 5s out of prudence. It's nice to think that these old models could still be desirable; some years ago it was a bit of a shock to search 'vintage holster' on eBay and have my Bianchi creations come up! I'm that old!?It's pretty hard to beat an older Bianchi #5 or 5BH. I believe the B stands for thumbbreak, the H for highride.
