Thank you all for the kind words.  I really do love working with the leather.  Everything I have done so far is just for myself.  I have never made anything to sell.

Thanks again.

Here are two Butt Covers I made for some fellow shooters. The end caps were wet-molded to fit the stock end. These covers were finished with several coats of Neets Foot Oil only.

Thanks, pards. Much appreciated.
I've always admired the double stitching on the Roosevelt holster so I finally jumped in at the deep end and had a go.
I think I've got the tooling pattern as near as possible to the original.
The configuration of the Collins holster is distinct from Meanea's. The leather rises higher over the cylinder and the bulge between the loops is lower down, closer to the end of the ejector rod.

Other observations I've noticed. The Meanea holsters I've seen are also more pointy, tapered, getting smaller down at the toe plug and the bottom loop is smaller. Meanea holsters have a partial welt at the top behind the trigger guard too. You can see it in the second pic.

This is my 7 1/2 inch version of a Meanea. I took measurements from an original and got is as close as possible.

Further to the differences between Collins and Meanea, I'd say that the leather rises higher over the cylinder, the bulge between the loops is lower, the waist is slimmer and the end is slimmer in the Collins than in the Meanea. Here's a photo of a Collins holster which has had its skirt cut away by some ill-advised person. The virtue of it is that we can see the shape of the holster very clearly.

This is the same configuration as in the Roosevelt holster.

That Collins holster looks closer to the early Gallatin mexican loops. I can't help but think it was Frank Meanea that designed it though. Or someone working for them as this style didn't start taking shape until Meanea was a partner with Gallatin.

The bulge moved up and the Cheyenne holster took on the shape we are most familiar with in the 80's when the were being stamped with Meanea's own mark. Gallatin sold his remaining interest to Meanea in the early 80's, by that time Meanea had been in charge of the Cheyenne saddlery for a few years.
