I used David's  cavalry tack for years back in my reenacting days, and I have his S&W #3 holster...
Why I did not think of him is a quandary  :-\

" I do believe the MTL has several levels of quality " 
that is my fear... but @ $ 21  I'll expect the worst and hope to be surprised  :-X

I think the P38 holster was on sale too and was quite good...
I did a little  "Hollywood" age for the camera to it and it responded well to its new look
when planets align...do the deal !

Pacific Canvas and Leather made a great one, but sadly folded a couple years ago.  They also mad a great 1881 Schofield holster.

I don't suppose there a lot makers of this pattern ...so I guess the importers are stocking the same ones.

Anyway my holster arrived , a day ahead of expected , I give MTL props for quick shipping

The holster is made of about 9 oz leather , the finish is Hershey chocolate brown .
For $21 it is bargain ,  on a scale of 10... I put it a an 8   

The M1917 fits quite well

 have dulled the finish    -  it has faux warn finish now, it should just get better from here 

before & after
when planets align...do the deal !

bought a new shiny p38 lightweight frame in Germany in 1980.  Did the ATF form and brought it back home in 83 when we came back from germany
