Here is a quote from a post on the Smith & Wesson forum - THIS FORUM - from April 2019. The forum search function can be your friend

Hi guys. I’m new to forum and have been looking for a vintage holster for my model 28. I’ve seen a lot of Don Hume H216 Jordan Border Patrol holsters for sale on EBay but wasn’t sure about sizing. So I emailed Don Hume and they sent me some sizing info on these. Many of you probably know this but I thought I would share this info in case anyone’s looking like I am.

H216 no. 14 and 16: K frame, Ruger Speed Six, and Ruger Service Six. Second number denotes barrel length. 4 and 6 inch.

H216 no. 24 and 26: N frame

H216 no. 74 and 76: Colt Python, Trooper, Dan Wesson, Ruger Security Six, and L frame.
If that does not answer your question you can do what the poster above did and send an email to Don Hume and ask them.

hmm, don't see anything for the no 3, What's the small frame that a "chief's special" is made on? That would be in the neighborhood. it's a small holster, but has the "basket weave" look to it, and made to work on a wide belt if required. It was made for some type of service weapon, but back in a time when they still used small revolvers on duty, mostly detectives, chiefs and the like, not the uniforms.

That reminds me, I'm looking for an older but fully serviceable double action revolver, something not too small, in physical size, but I'm open on the caliber. I prefer to stick to 22, 38 special, or other common calibers so ammo is easier to find (a problem for all calibers these days I understand) A friend is letting me have a 380 auto for the time being, but it's a cheap one and frankly not what I'd prefer to have. For my needs, I like a revolver, they go bang or you just pull the trigger again if it doesn't, no racking a slide, no stovepipes, none of that nonsense.

What would y'all recommend? prefreably not something pricey.
