    Anybody know a good source for a holster for a ROA that has a flap over the top to keep rain out? Leather or synthetic, doesn't matter how it looks, it's just for the woods.

    I could make a leather holster with flap, especially for a ROA.

    Think I got mine from Cabelas. It's for the 1960 army, but has two holes in the flap and just does fit my ROA. It's got the US stamp on it to match an accessories pouch I've had for a while.

    That is beautiful work! Are you still making holsters?

    Bianchi used to make one with the Ruger eagle on the flap. It was russet in color, built like a vault and looked great. They were made especially for the ROA, and I'll bet there's one floating around somewhere. I've seen them at gun shows, and checking the auction sites might be worth your time.

    El Paso Saddlery makes a nice flap holster.


    Oklahoma Leather also makes one but they use rather thin and floppy leather. I may destitch mine and use it for the pattern.
