Who makes a good holster for a Colt Detective Special with a three inch barrel? I have a late series 2 one with the thin barrel with the unshrouded ejector rod. I can't seem to find a good belt holster for it. Most holster makers only make holsters for the two inch barreled version. I know the three inchers were rare, but somebody must make something.

One of these days, when I can find one and I have the money, I'd like to pick up one of the series 3 guns with the three inch barrel, that does have the shrouded ejector rod. No doubt I will want a holster for one of those as well when I get it. Right now though, I'd be happy to find something to fit the DS I've got.

Try a holster made for an sp101.

I've been in the same boat, and found a solution at a gun show while going through a box of "worthless" old hosters :evil: and discovered one for a 4" Police Positive Special, that was made on the same frame/platform as the Detective Special. It was in "like new" condition and set me back $15.00 cash money... ;)

Simply Rugged shows the Detective Special on their list, but don't specify barrel length.

Likewise for Lobo Gunleather, they show the Detective Special, but don't specify barrel length.

The more I look, I'm guessing this is the case with most holster makers. You may have to call them and verify. The guys that have been in the business for a few years may be the best bets as they made holsters when that pistol was more common in use. Such makers as Alessi, Rosen, Sparks, etc.
