I am looking for some recommendations for an S&W Model 66 2 inch revolver. I have been searching around locally and online, but I have not found anything that really jumps out at me. I am looking for all leather. Not a real fan of kydex on revolvers. I am not interested in pocket holsters. No preference IWB or OWB. I am looking for something I can order and have within about a month. Some of the holster makers I was looking at had great products but I am not willing to wait for the product that long.

Your answer is sitting at the top of the screen...see 'Related Links'...search out Fist holsters.
I have over 2 dozen of them...reasonably priced, good quality, 3-5 week delivery...the sight offers clear pictures and some vids of their use.
It costs you nothing to look...
Stay armed...can't go wrong with a Fist holster...stay safe!

Galco makes several OWB holsters that would fit your gun, delivery takes about a week. By the way, the S&W M-66 has a 2.5" Bbl.

2.5 barrel? Lol the guy wrote it up as 2 and I have been searching for 2. Kinda explains the lack of options I am seeing right now. Thanks for the input.
I should be able to meet your timeline.
I have a Double J-clip already made for a 66 2.5". I can make a The Slide OWB also for that.
I just got done making a The Slide OWB BQ holster for mine if you want it. I love my 66-1 for a carry weapon.
Let me know.

How about Shado leather? I bought this Clamshell for my 2" K frame and it works well. Clamshell Leather Belt Holster: Rays Holsters & Accessories
it is only $35 and they have fast shipping. It is not a very fancy holster but it can serve you well while you place an order and wait for some real quality gear.
MNBurl, Classy holster and like the cutout section. Who made them grips for you?

Guys, you're killing me! I traded my 66-5 for my SA Mil-Spec about two years back and you're making me regret it, they really are great revolvers.
When I was looking for a holster for mine, the only thing I found on the shelf was a Don Hume J.I.T. . What a complete piece of crap, don't waste your money. One of the problems with finding holsters for the 66 is that, since they aren't made anymore, there doesn't seem to be much demand for leather.
That SGH looks pretty sweet if you want something exotic and need it fast.
