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.

Very nice holster yet I want more..

I use it for my Smith Wesson 48 and it required zero break in! Looks great and fits your hip like a glove. The only thing I wish was available is this holster with a suede liner! Come on guys! I always prefer a lined holster to provide optimal protection to the "purdy" part of the gun. Sure it will cost more, but will save some wear on the blue job. I'll buy the first one you make!

Beautiful craftsmanship

Excellent sturdy holster. Retention out of the box was tight but very secure on my ruger match champ .357. Vintage finish on the leather looks spectacular. Seems to be built to last a lifetime.
