Single-Six holster for 4-5/8"

Got the gun, then discovered how hard it is to find a decent LEATHER holster for the 4-5/8" barrel - especially if you want something OTHER THAN the typical "cowboy rig." Most of the easily-available holsters are for longer barrels, or are cowboy rigs, or both.

Triple K model 440
from http://www.cowboyneeds.com/440.html

sixty bucks

very impressed with the workmanship and fit

two-way belt loop allows strong-side or crossdraw carry

Wow that's a nice holster!
I have a western rig, but usually carry my 4 5/8 SS in an old Uncle Mike's. I'll look into the Triple K.

BTW....Where did you get the slick bird's head grip frame on a Single Six??

Try googling ]"The Cowboy and Shooter's Supply[/COLOR]".....they carry a pretty full line of Triple K stuff and are great to deal with. Triple K products may not be amongst the top of the line,..but they do make some pretty good stuff. I have a couple of their
"Lightning 440's",..one for a Ruger Single Six in 4 5/8's as well. They do work well,..and are pretty well made.

Same Company as OPprovided link for

I know folks are not gonna take this the right way but I can't imagine paying $60 for a TripleK when an El Paso Saddlery Threepersons is $75 and a Mernickle PS6 is only $80.

I didn't pay $60.......the Triple K #440 lists for 50 bucks,... plus shipping of course.

The ThreePerson's is a nice looking rig,..no doubt about that. But I was commenting on the Triple K,..as was the OP as I recall,..as an alternative to a typical western style rig.

Each to them's own,............

The quality of the Triple K is very good, if the name-brand doesn't excite the elite.

Most importantly, the Triple K is the only crossdraw-convertible with thumb-break retention that I've seen.
Much to be said for getting very good quality, and exactly the features you want... and for a few shekels less than the big-name brands.

Its the factory offering on the .32 magnum model.

I just gotta ask. What is a 32m? I have found 32 S&W Long, 32 H&R mag, 327 Federal mag, but no 32 m.

Thanks for proving my prediction correct.

It has to be a crossdraw for me.

How about Simply Rugged for $60.

The same holster can be carried, strong side, cross draw, or IWB.

However, I'm not sure if they still offer the thumb break option.
