I'd love to one day own a real Brill holste but for not as close as I am is three Will Ghormley prototypes that I have. Here is one of them.

Hi Rube

Is Will making holsters for sale or a pattern pack?

Thanks

This was one of the prototypes for a pattern pack he was making. I bought three of his prototypes.

That means your image needs to be reduced in size to upload it. If you don't want to reduce the size, then you need to have images saved somewhere like Imgur where you can post a link to them.

The first two links here will give you some direction on posting photos.

Been posting images for a while now, some on this thread.  Now, no matter what I do nor how I size them, I get image exceed some magical number.

As I recall, this has happened before. I disappear for 6-8 months and when I come back, I can post 2-3 images!

In the past I've reduced photos to 640x480 pixels to upload them. Anymore I just put them on imgur and post a link to them. It's easier to do that than mess with uploading them. It has the advantage that your image doesn't take up server space on CAS City, too.

Anyone who likes the Brill holsters needs the book Holstory. It’s a wonderful book on turn of the century holsters.

Will Ghormley recently released a. We pattern pack on Brill style holsters.

Hi
Are you talking about the El Dorado pattern pack?  It's the only one I thought looked close. 

By the way, while I agree with the comment that this is the top of the heap:  "In my opinion, they are the ultimate in the evolution of the Western holster."  I also think that it looks like a difficult holster to make correctly.  Toe plugs are hard enough...  In a way, I think I'm happy that I don't have anything I carry that would fit correctly in a Brill Holster.  Except a 1911.   :o

Will's El Dorado holster isn't a Brill design. I didn't see a Brill on his site. You could email him to see if he has the pattern available.

Thanks Marshal, but I don't have anything (except 1911's) that really fits JUST that period.  I am curious about the pattern, because I really think it is a complicated design.

It is a bit more complex than other designs but it's amazingly well though out. There are a variety of pistols that they were made for. Colt SAA, 1911 and Colt & Smith DAs to mention a few. I like the look of the 1911 ones but they are definitely a great design.

He does have them available. It's called the Lone Star Holster pattern pack.

Hi
I searched and found it here:
https://leathercraftersjournal.com/product/lone-star-holster-pattern-pack/
I didn't see it on Will's sight though.  I need to go back over the list and see if I have something that needs a Brill Holster.

Would that pattern be available for a 3" S&W N frame?

It is available for 4" and 6" N frames.  Looks like it is designed for 9-10 ounce leather; the originals were 7-8 ounce at most.  That's too bad--who wants to wear a brick?

I want to wear a brick! Just bought a classy S&W N frame with 3" barrel. I need a classic holster for it.

Hi
I ordered the Lone Star Holster Pattern from Leathercrafter magazine.  It's not advertised on Will's website at this time.  The pattern and directions are a step or two more detailed than (for example) the Lawdog pattern, and they need to be.  The Lone Star (Brille) pattern is fitted to the frame of the pistol in such a way as to hold the pistol tightly in the holster.  It was interesting that the example Will used, didn't make the holster all that tight to save the pistol's finish.  Again, the directions are very detailed with the last pages containing 57 individual steps. 

I'll build one of these for a 1911, and a Smith L Frame, but it will be a while.  Neither is on my list of things to do (until last week).
