    I have been looking around various catalogs and websites and it seems that there is a distinct lack of holsters, etc, that cater for BP Revolvers.
    Is there actually any interest in leather designed specifically for the Colts, Remmies, etc?

    Cap and ball leather

    Howdy,

    Check out Black Hills Leather. Rudy will fix you right up.
    They have a nice online catalogue and you can custom order any special features you desire. I just got one of their "Morgan" rigs and it fits both my Colt SAA and Remmie NMA equally well. The lack of top strap and smaller cylinder of a Colt Navy or Army makes for a little looser fit so a custom holster is now on order to make my "Morgan" a double rig !

    If you don't want to wait for a custom order you might try El Paso Saddelry or Texas Jack's.
    I'm purdy sure one of them Texas leather companies will be able to supply what you need.

    Cheers,

    Cincinnati Slim

    Leather

    Also check out Bullard. I have two of his transitional holsters, and am very happy with them. They have held up for years now. He doesn't charge much, but what he makes looks like it comes straight out of Packing Iron.

    Lots of options

    Lots of options, depending on how much you want to spend. Some inexpensive ready-mades, probably unlined (single thickness) can be found here Cabelas and here Track of the Wolf. If you want something that is lined, made in the color of your choice, with the cant you want, etc, etc, and don't mind paying for it, try one of the custom makers. My personal favorite is William Brown of Tombstone.
