For the American model they used the same holster as the civil war.

The S&W #3 the US adopted was the 1875 Schofield, the issue martial holster has
TWO stud holes in the flap, one to accommodate the SAA issue revolver, the other the S&W top break.

U.S. Army Model 1881 Cavalry Holster for Colt SAA or S&W Frontier Revolvers

I don't think a US military holster was patterned for the American Model as it had not been adopted as a Service arm per say.

Frontier Iron / Military holster for S&W American

"This new design, the Smith & Wesson Model 3, was adopted by the US Army as the first cartridge-firing revolver in US service." as say the Library of Congress.  So, there must have been a holster for this gun but I have had no luck in finding anything about one.
Can anyone provide a source/information on this topic?  I have been amazed at the expertise found in CAS.  Thanks for the help in advance.  Capt'n Jack

And one must remember the earlier .50-70 rifles,  The 1866s in particular were well into the market by the mid 1870s in one form or another.  I suspect if one saw a Trapdoor in civilian hands prior to 1880, it was probably an 1866.

When the serial numbers below 50K were called in they were broken down and the 'unservicable' parts sold off. Hartley & Graham, Whitney and others wasted no time in putting them back together and selling 'genuine US service rifles' on the open market. This was 1879-80-ish and the Ordnance Dept. was hopping mad. This is probably the source of at least some of the mixed parts mongrel early model Trapdoors.
