Here is a new scabbard for a 4”, N frame with fixed sights.

Hmmm, not able to post images, too big?  Oh well…

If you can get those photos reduced in size, they would be most welcome here. That holster is outstanding.

If you need to resize your photos in Windows, Faststone Photo Resizer works great.

In Linux, gThumb is the easiest I've found. It's installed from the Software Manager. I make photos 640 x 480 pixels and never have a problem with them.

On a Mac, I'm not sure, having had little experience with them.

Wow! Okay, here is a view of the welt.  Mike skived the layers to produce a tapered welt. The scabbard is built so the welt is tight to the frame of the handgun and forces the sidearm into the fold of the holster.  This acts as the retention so no retreat straps or things are needed.

Here is the back of the holster.  The stitching on original scabbards is often the signature of the maker and is used to identify who built the scabbard.

Here is the toe of the holster.  It is sewn closed and sewn to the fender.  A small leather wedge kicks the muzzle out and forces the handle to lay close to the body of the wearer.

I can hold them like this until my arms gets tired and it will not fall out.  But, a simple pull upward while the holster is belted, allows for a fast, smooth draw.

I mentioned the fit of the welt.  Properly done, the holster fits only the revolver for which it was made.  In my case, I had it built for a 45 ACP, 4” barrel, fixed sights with the reinforced ejector lug, aka, Model 22-4. Here is how an adjustable sighted version of that revolver sits in the holster.

It sits way high.  A proper holster does not fit a variety of revolvers, that is a bucket.

Mike did a very good job on this holster, considering it was his first attempt at one.  He says he has learned a lot and the next one won’t take as long. I am already planning my next one!

Yes, that is the first one Mike made. He said he learned a lot about holsters building that one.  The next one will come together quicker!

I may have lead you to think this was his first holster. That is not correct.  It was his first attempt at the Sunday Scabbard.

That's an awesone Holster especially for a first attempt. Look forward to seeing future projects.

Hi
While TRUE, I have Will Ghormlehy's pattern for the Lone Star / Brill Holster.  That holster is a whole nother level past the 3:10 to Yuma holsters.

I sent you a pm with his contact information. If you have him do anything, post a photo or two back on the forum. We're photo junkies.
