    I am saving up to buy a big boy S&W 500 (I'm a bona-fide big blast junkie).
    Just in case I ever want to hunt with it-- how would you holster it with a scope mounted??

    I though someone posted a picture of an across the chest holster for a full size (7 1/8" barrel) X frame S&W with scope awhile back but I can't find it. Google search has not helped either.

    Anybody know of one this big??:confused:

    i know this is an old thread

    BUT

    what i did is ordered a cross draw holster from ross leather for my s&w 500, 8 3/8". it has a weigland stainless x frame mount and there 4 ring magnum rings setup. i laid the gun with rings and scope on top of the holster, marked it and trimmed a slot in the appropriate area. works like a charm, and is the same thing as youd get from one of these "custom" holster makers that want to charge you $500 for a holster setup.

    i can send pix of mine if anyone wants to email me for them, or if they have any questions.

    Galco Kodiak is now being made for a scoped .500.
