Amazing quality and perfect fit for my Model 19 classic. I could not be happier!

So where do I start, so after watching The Yankee Marshal on YouTube he led me to your holsters especially since I was looking for a 3” OWB holster for my new S&W 19 Carry Comp and there are really none that are drop shipped. So on Sept 29, 2020 I placed an order for a stealth black holster, really wanted signature brown but it was out of stock. So about 10 days later I get a message from 1791 on how am I enjoying my new holster ? I had yet not received it so I called and after a wait I was informed there was a mix up and she had my holster in her hand which was going to be shipped in 24 hrs. 12 days pass and still no holster plus I notice they are sold out of all 3 colors. I call again and speak to Rebecca and after a lengthy conversation she tells me she does not know what happened to my order. She then tells me Signature brown will be I stock in another 3 weeks and the other colors later. I tell her I guess I have to wait because 1791 is the only 3” revolver holster available at this time. She then tells me they are refunding my money because of the mix up and such a long wait, also to keep an eye out for an email for shipping of my Signature brown holster. I Thanked Rebecca and told her it’s not their fault with all this COVID-19 going around throwing wrenches in everyone’s lives. Today Nov 7, 2020 I received my holster and I’m very Happy !! The color and quality of 1791 leather is Great !! Currently breaking it in and will be ordering a Beretta 92x holster soon. I will be posting pictures of the set up and recommending 1791 Leather to family and friends !! Thank You Again Rebecca and the 1791 Family !!

Purchased the RVH2 for a new S&W 686 with 4 inch barrel . I ordered it in dark brown but got an E-mail that it was out of stock. I called Erin and she told me she did have it in the light brown or tan color. She shipped it out the same day and I had it in less than a week! When I received it I followed the instructions for break in and within a half hour it was perfect fit! Great service, great fit , and great price. What more can you ask for ? The only thing that is less than perfect is it seems to ride a little higher then I am use to but I think I can adapt. Thankyou Erin and 1791 Gunleather.

Perfect fit for my S&W Model 10, right out of the box. The retention is right where it needs to be, and re-holstering feels "solid", almost like a kydex holster lock-up. The other reviewers are correct - these are very high quality on top of very nice materials. I'm always happy when I can support an American company and get a great product at the same time. Next up is a 1791 holster for my Ruger SP101....

One of the finest pieces of workmanship I have seen. Have other holsters that I consider good, but this holster is a work of art. Fits both my frame and my 4” K frame like a glove.

Buying a Holster for a K-Frame Revolver

The first K-frame revolver was developed by Smith & Wesson in 1899. The “Military & Police” was a medium-sized revolver — slightly larger than the J-frame, but smaller than the L-frame. Its convenient size made it a decent service sidearm for people who frequently carry a revolver. Semi-automatics and J-frame wheel guns are popular today, but the reliable S&W Model 10 is still the top-selling revolver in history and a favorite among law enforcement personnel.

An excellent K-frame holsters should be:

  • Secure – The reason you’re buying a holster is to securely retain your weapon when not in use. hand-molded revolver holsters snugly retain your weapon using heavy duty, double-reinforced-stitched leather and strong American steel clips beveled for comfort and safe retention.
  • Comfortable – Some people may wear snub-nose revolvers in a pocket holster or IWB for a concealed carry, but the most popular type of holster for the longer barrel k-frames is the OWB belt holster we offer. It’s by far the most comfortable way to carry all day, either on your weak side or your strong side hip, depending on which type of draw you prefer.
  • Durable – We only use leather from the highest quality American sources. Our heavy native steerhide is designed to last for generations. We stand by our craftsmanship with a Lifetime Warranty. Additionally, we care about protecting the bluing of your revolver with a close-bottom design and soft interior resistant to tarnishing or scratching.

Depending on your planned usage, you may also care about buying a K-frame holster that offers:

  • Accessibility — The RVH2 leaves the trigger easily accessible to you at all times, with NO added retention devices like thumb-breaks or trigger guard hoods. This is particularly important when using your weapon for personal protection or for frequent use on the range.
