    Who carries a K-Frame?

    I've recently decided to switch my carry gun from a Springfield XD .45 to a K frame (or equivalent) revolver in .357. Any number of reasons for that, but I'm starting to get discouraged by the holster selection.

    So, who here carries a K frame equivalent, and what do you pack it in?

    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    if the security six is a k frame equivalent then i do. I use a H721OT for my security six, and for that matter all 4 of my carry guns. Nicely priced for what you get there are probably more holsters available for your gun than mine. fist makes revolver holsters i believe as does little bear holsters. i'm sure ret will post his usual Fist holster linking you to a good choice...think its ret that does that. i still need to look into them as well

    I hope to be picking up a K frame, S&W Model 65 soon. Meanwhile I carry something close, my S&W 686+(L frame) and I use a Sourdough Pancake holster from Simply Rugged.

    I carry a 3" 65 in a Desantis OWB. It's very comfortable and conceals well.

    Plenty of options for your K Frame revolver here:

    I'm using the #12 for my K Frame S&Ws.

    I carry a K-Frame Smith & Wesson Model 10 4-inch most often. For cool weather carry I've toted it in this Bucheimer Federal Man holster since the 1970s. High-rise holsters of this type conceal well beneath a jacket or suit coat.




    Here's the Bucheimer Federal Man afield with me Monday of this week. I usually don't use the Federal Man as a field holster but finally wore out an equally old Smith & Wesson holster recently and haven't replaced it.

    For summertime use with the same revolver I use a Holsters Unlimited IWB holster. I used to frequently carry the Model 10 in a Bianchi X-15 shoulder holster under my suit but that holster doesn't see much use any more.

    I have a Model 13 4" and have been looking for options as well. I really like the Simply Rugged everyone who has one seems pleased. I am going to follow this thread for other suggestions as well.

    I was hoping to get a C-Tac but was sad to see they skip straight from J to L frames. :(

    As soon as I get my hands on the K-frame and find a holster, I'll report back. I'm hoping it's early next week.

    I carry various revolvers and have a short list of holstermakers. It's getting harder and harder to find a "cowbender" that can work around the wheelie. Here's my short list:

    Milt Sparks
    Matt Del Fatti
    Greg Kramer

    I carry a k-frame model 66-1 w/ 2.5" barrel from time to time. I have a Galso combat master pancake style holster which rides high, and a Don Hume JIT, which works ok. I have a AKJ Concealco IWB holster on order.

    I just dug out after the first of the year and started again carrying occasionally my Model 19 Combat Magnum 2.5" Nickel.... It rides in a Desantis Thumbbreak Scabbard holster. I like that holster because it has 2 set of belt loops so you get into very high ride position for more concelled carry.

    Model 66 snubby in PWL holster

    Once in awhile I carry the model 66 snubby below in a PWL leather scabbard holster. It rides nice and high and conceals well.

    I was on the search for a tuckable IWB for a 4" K frame. I tried calling to see if it would be available and the guy sorta chuckled and said man folks just aint carryin em. I guess there just isnt as big of a demand cause they arent as cool. As much as I love my Glock 26 my K frame trigger is like butter and magical.
