The image above shows the classic Collins configuration which stayed pretty constant over the years
As you can see, it's the same shape as the Roosevelt.
Who created this style first, Meanea or Collins? Maybe it was joint development.

Oh, drool, cliff! That one looks good enough to eat. Beautiful work. I didn't know Meanea put partial welts in. Very fine example.

KT, that one is very cool. You're going to make someone happy. The finish sets off the design nicely. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone.

Marshal, yes the partial welt on Meanea's holsters give a little pocket for the trigger guard to sit in. Francis Meanea was top notch maker in form and function.

After seeing this on original Meanea holsters and realizing how nice it is I've also been putting that partial welt on a lot of my other holsters for the past few years.

If it's a Meanea style it definitely gets the partial welt and toe plug.

Thanks, Cliff. I'll have to include that next time I do a Meanea style holster.

Thanks, Cliff.
It's a European single bend from Tandy's, veg tan, 8-9 oz.
I dyed it with Ecoflo Pro Waterstain, medium brown. I gave it a light initial dyeing and then a second heavier one. I find this pro range pretty good. I was trying to duplicate the original in the Autry Museum which, like a lot of Collins holsters, is darkish brown.

I could tell you had rubbed something on it but wasn't sure what you started with. I really like the color, the only of that waterstain I've used is the black. I'll have to try it.

Great job on it, looks like it could be in a museum.

I had to do some work on this thread. I think I have everything right. If there are any missing posts, my apologies on that. If anyone thinks something is missing, I can see about finding it and putting it back.

We'll lock this thread and use the new one, now.

Great work, pards. Keep showing us yer stuff here: The New Show Us Yer Stuff Thread
