    Holster ideas for Model 60 three inch adjustable sights

    Yes, I finally got one.

    Now I'm having trouble finding a holster.

    The holsters I have for my Model 36s don't have provisions for sights.

    I'd like inside waist band but I'd be happy to hear of any ideas, even a shoulder holster.

    I would call or email first to explain about your concern about the sights fitting in this holster....and then decide.

    Rob Leahy has developed a unique way to convert his OWB belt holsters to IWB with what he calls "Inside the Waistband Straps". I dislike IWB carry....particularly with fat, lumpy revolvers jabbing my bony frame, but I'm assured these things work well. Look over his website for photos.

    I have two of his belt holsters - a "Sourdough Pancake" for 2 1/2" K-Frame, and a "Cuda" for a full-size auto. Both are outstanding in quality and design.

    Thanks much.

    The J frames are not so "lumpy." In fact, they're pretty comfortable.

    I will give it a good look.

    Only OWB holsters for me and I can vouch for the Simply Rugged pancake holster. ElPaso Saddlery also makes a great OWB Combat holster that I use for my S&W model 66, with a 2.75” barrel.

    Holster ideas for Model 60 three inch adjustable sights

    I just received this Simply Rugged “Sourdough” from Mr. Leahy a few days ago - this one for a 2 1/2” M-66 K-Frame. Even though adorned with his excellent floral carving, it was delivered exactly 2 weeks after I ordered it online. It’s similar to the “Silver Dollar”, only slightly larger.


    I didn’t want the IWB straps or the removable retention strap since the pouch is so deep and the formed leather retains the revolver enough to suit me. I may add a thong from the back to loop over the hammer on rare occasions of rough use.

    Here are two holsters I use for the little 3”ers. One is a Bianchi 5BH and the other is my Sunday holster, a custom version of the Brill style holster. Far left holster in each photo.

    I like them both.
