I have been looking for a holster for my 2.5" Model 19 and someone suggested that I look at K&D. I really loved the look of his defenders and after reading everyones praise about them decided that I would like to have one. However, K&D does not make a holster for a 2.5" K frame - I am so disappointed.
Can anyone please recommend another quality holster maker that I might try?
Be reasonable. See things my way.
Thanks for the info on FIST. Anyone else have suggestions?
For an "off the rack" holster check DeSantis. If you don't mind paying a bit more for horsehide, my preference, contact Kramer. It makes a difference and is well worth the price tag. Kind of a buy it once theory.

For my S&W model 66 snubby (same as your model 19 but stainless) I use a belt scabbard holster made by PWL - Price Western Leather, and am very happy with it. It really pushes the butt of the gun into my side and hides it completely. I believe it is the model 120TS.

Galco makes several holsters for the model 19 K frame 2.5"
Andrews Custom Leather might be worth a try.

Give him a call, very easy to deal with.
As one other stated you might also need to ship your firearm to a good holster maker for molding purposes.

Milt Sparks or Matt Del Fatti get my vote.
