    5" smith N frame holster?

    Does such a creature exist? I've only been able to find 4 and 6 inch holsters. I'd like to find a leather crossdraw holster for my 629 with a 5 inch barrel.
    Where can i find one?
    when in doubt....poke it with a bayonet

    you'll only grab a bluefish by the lip once...

    the grass may be greener on the other side, but it still needs to be mowed

    Try a custom shop. Black hills Leather www.bhlstore.com does mine and it takes about four weeks to ship. Rudy's work is great.

    Talk to Eric at Side Guard Holsters (http://www.sideguardholsters.com/hol...B_Holsters.htm). He makes some good holsters, and can make it to order.
    Don't know about cross-draw, but I am wearing one of his Double Clip IWB holsters with a 4" N-frame M-25 as I type this, and as it is open-ended, it also accommodates 5" and 6" barrels.

    Several Years Ago...

    ...Dillon Precision offered some cowhide OWB holsters for S&W N-frame revolvers, made by Kramer Handgun Leather. The four-inch version is boned for the traditional ejector-shroud barrel. As I recall, the five-inch version (which is currently buried in a box somewhere in my garage, is boned for the full-underlug barrel of a 625 but I believe it will also accept a revolver with the more traditional barrel. I believe that the holsters are the Cowhide Vertical Scabbards, which appear to cost an extra $10 for a five-inch barrel.

    If IWB is more your cup of tea, check out the offerings from CABO Holster.

    Take a look a El Paso Saddlery's selection: http://www.epsaddlery.com/c-9-holsters.aspx .

    They have some very nice options, including the two below, and should be able to make it for you for about any barrel length.

    Buy a Hunter X-draw and have a good leather worker cut it down and sew the toe closed. Or leave the toe open. Shud run $15-$30 bucks. That is what I had to do it and it works well

    I have two Simply Rugged holsters for a K and L frame, respectively. Awesome. I also have the Galco Phoenix for a 4" N-frame, and it is a good production holster. The Galco is a bit less bulky and tension adjustable, but if you want a traditional pancake SR is where it's at.

    I have that same gun (the one with the full underlug). Got a horsehide holster direct from Kramer. It is a little high-ride though, and with the gun being so big anyway, you feel like you are drawing it into your armpit to get the gun out. Won't win any quick-draw competitions with it.

    Kramer makes a very nice cross draw for the 5" N-Frame, I use one for my 625.
