    Unhappy Disappointed - Model 19 Holster

    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?

    Thanks

    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.

    Call Kevin. He doesn't make one because he doesn't have a dummy gun. If you are willing to have an FFL ship the gun to Kevin's FFL Kevin will make the holster for you. How do I know? Check these out.

    PWL - Price Western Leather

    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.

    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.

    Here's a PIC or two of my Milt Sparks Summer Special II for a 4" N-Frame.
