Buying J-Frame Revolver Holsters

As Smith & Wesson’s smallest and most concealable revolver, the J-Frame is the classic “snub-nose.” When buying revolver holsters for a J-frame, you’ll want to look for:

  • Retention – The last thing you want is for your weapon to come popping out unexpectedly. Leather revolver holsters hold your weapon in place through the firmness of high-quality steerhide leather, reinforced with double stitching, and the custom-sizing to J-frame revolvers. Most people do not need the extra thumb breaks, trigger hoods, or other retention straps found in other holsters.
  • Comfort – Nothing beats leather revolver holsters when it comes to comfort! They warm up with your body heat and conform to your hip for all-day carrying.
  • Durability – Proud gun owners who purchased leather holsters back in the 1970s find that they still perform today, even after heavy use. Our leather holsters are designed to have that same classic longevity. Unless you’re frequently carrying in a jungle swamp, a leather holster should have the sort of durability you need. Every 1791 Gunleather holster comes with a Lifetime Warranty on craftsmanship.

Very happy with purchase

I’m quite pleased with this purchase. I bought this for my S&W 637 1.875. This is my first leather holster for my first revolver but I followed the break-in instructions and it fits perfect. With such quick shipping, perfect fit and nice color (vintage) I couldn’t be happier.

  • Firearm Smith & Wesson 442

Very good holster, prefer this over kydex

Very happy with this holster. For all my 9mm handguns I use kydex holsters, but for a 442 I thought that wasn’t necessary given how deliberate the trigger pull is for the gun, so I went with leather. Holster is very well made and looks good. It feels much more comfortable than kydex and is significantly cheaper. This holster combined with my 442 makes for my most comfortable carry option for whenever I need to leave the house quickly and don’t want to throw on a belt and larger gun.
