Anyone carrying a 4" 686 IWB successfully? I'm looking for a high quality leather holster to make this work.

Look at the Ruger six series first post. That Bianchi 3S Pistol Pocket does double duty with my 686. That Ruger kinda swims in it because of the smaller cylinder, but the thumb strap helps. I'm not positive but I think they make a 4in variant for the 686. mine is a 2.5in

That seems like an awful lotta gun for IWB.
Good luck in finding the right holster for you.

Galco makes a good summer comfort holster

Also there are many good custom holster makers that make IWB holsters for revolvers.

CABO would be another maker of leather IWBs for large guns. (But their website seems to have evaporated. Might not be still around.)

I carry a 4" 629 IWB sometimes, but my holster is a Kydex Miurage from Hoffner's.

I just found Tucker Gun Leather. I may go this direction.

Sam - any chance you were thinking of LOBO Gun Leather. I also just found them.

Nope. :) "CABO" stands (or stood?) for "Carry A Big One." They make (or made) leather IWB holsters, mostly deep-tuck straight-drop styles for large revolvers, though I think they did have a few for autos.

Now, they seem to be just a memory on the web. Their old website is listed as up for sale, so I'm guessing they're not operating any more.

Lobo is a different company. They make a much wider variety of styles than CABO did.

Gunblast did an article on concealment holsters for large pistols.
