Those are great pistols. I bought one many years ago from an older gent that got it from his father who bought it new in the 20s in the original box W/ a letter from Colt where it had been converted to .22 L.R. Had the original holster as well.


Never mistake motion for action.

Colin- milt doesn't make one, and I can't find onyone on the net that does.

Anyone else have any ideas??? I'm looking for a high quality carry holster.

El Paso Saddlery makes them, and I have had
good results with their leather. Excellent
quality, but not the highly-polished finish
of Milt Sparks.

Hope this helps.

Kramer holsters are the best. IMHO

El Paso Saddlery is A-1 IMO..used them for years. Bobby McNellis owner or was may still be has a close Brill copy of holsters..Brill out of Austin was the best holsters every made, All the Texas Rangers used them, they are were awesome. Not sure if they are in business these days, but worth a try..I have several of them by old man Brill but they fetch big bucks in Texas these days.

+1 El Paso Saddlery
Bobby passed away some years ago, the business has changed hands and quite a few of the old time guys have retired or left.
So El Paso new management is not as user friendly as when Bobby had it, but their leather is still top notch.
I’ve used them for 35+ years.

Another one for Kramer.

If he doesn't currently offer a holster for your pistol now he will make one if he has access to that model gun.

If its recoil does not bother you, do as Mac did and buy a .300 Weatherby. Ammo might be hard to find in many places, but you should be able to plan ahead and take enough for where you're going. It's certainly enough gun for anything that walks in this world, including an elephant in a pinch if you have solid bullets and you can convince the local game guard that it's a legal caliber.
