    Holster advice for S&W 327 Night Guard

    I'm looking for some good ideas for an IWB holster for a 2.5" barrel S&W Night Guard N-frame revolver. I'd prefer leather belt loops, none of that kydex clip stuff.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks! The nice fellow at Cabo tells me he is concerned his holsters won't work all that well with the short-barrel N-frames, he's concerned about retention.

    The ideal holster I'm envisioning, from experimenting with my 625, would be one that carried the revolver actually quite low, with the cylinder at/below the beltline, so that pretty much just the grips stick up/out. Basically something that lets me securely/safely Mexican-carry.

    Lane at CABO is a good guy. I carried my 625-10 (when I had it) in my N frame CABO with no problems.

    Tucker makes a holster like you describe, also HBE Leatherworks.

    I think that revolvers are harder to get good holsters for. If Sparks makes one that is the way to go. I notice on the Lightning Arms site that Lou Alessi makes holsters for revolvers, but I do not know if he makes one for your particular revolver.

    Don't skimp. That is a large revolver, and needs the best in a holster and a belt also.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Jerry's right, it's hard to find a good N-frame holster, particularly in a short barrel length. Lots of makers will make them so they ride very high, making them hard to draw if you've got short arms or a short torso like me.

    Fist Holsters Fist Holsters will make any of their models for any length N-frame, and their IWB's look like they ride fairly low. I've got a couple of their OWB holsters and like them fine, but I haven't tried their IWB's.

    John Ralston of 5 Shot Leather 5 Shot Leather, LLC is making me a holster for a 3.5" N-frame and he was very willing to work with me and alter his pattern to fit my gun. He makes really beautiful gear and is a nice guy to deal with.

    I ended up going with a pancake from Rob Leahy at (Simply Rugged). It works great OWB on a good belt, and perfectly for my needs IWB with his "inside-out straps" conversion. I've been using it a couple weeks now, and it's great. Two thumbs up.
