I have two British WW1 revolvers that I would like to find holsters for (preferably full flap holsters).

The first is a Webley Mark IV with a 4" barrel in 455 Webley. I've seen a lot of reproduction Webley hoslters available but I suspect they're mostly intended for the more numerous Mark VI's with a 6" barrel. Does anyone have experience with the reproduction holsters sold by IMA or World War Supply?

The second revolver is a Garate, Spanish made copy of a S&W 44 Double Action, First Model in 455 Webley. I'm not really sure where to begin to look for a holster for this revolver.

Does anyone have any ideas of where I could find holsters for these old revolvers? I'd be happy to provide some pictures later as soon as I find my camera.

I went to Ebay and did a search for Webley Holster, and a lot of different holsters came up, from webbing originals to leather reproductions complete with shoulder straps. You might try that on GunBroker too.

I did the same, but I think they're generally speaking meant for the more common .38 Mk IVs or for the longer barrel Mk. VIs. I was hoping someone with a 455 Mk IV with a 4" barrel might have some guidance. Many thanks, though!

Check What Price Glory. They are a major manufacturer and seller of reproduction military equipment.

Robert, that was a very helpful link. I've sent them an email but tentatively, I'm hoping the standard Webley holster might fit the Garate and they have an "Indiana Jones" holster that seems to be for 4" barrels. I'll let you all know what I figure out.

I have a couple IMA holsters, both are very well made.

I did end up ordering from What Price Glory. I'll be sure to post some pictures when the holsters arrive to give you all an idea of what WPG is offering. The items have apparently already shipped, some from the US warehouse and the rest from the UAE apparently.
