Need help deciding on holsters for my Schofields.

Recommended Posts

Looking to shoot my S&W Performance Center Schofields more this season. Doc Nope will be making what ever style I decide to go with. I'm not looking for  holsters that are competitive but more for a rig that will suit the period of the guns. I combed through my Packing Iron book and just can't seem to decide. I like slim jims and mexican loops alike. Doc can make a replica of any holster based off of a pic so I'm not limited by design at all. Anyone have any suggestions?

So easy-Buy both styles. ^_^

Then you can sell(if you want)the style that doesn't fit your needs.....

How long are the barrels? Slim Jim holsters look better with long barrelled guns.

The Mexican loop will be easier to holster, but the Jesse James style is a beautiful rig and usable if the entry is firm and the edge curled a bit.  The tear tooling is quite attractive on these also. They tended to ride higher for mounted shooting during the early years.

I think this double loop looks good beside a 5 inch gun.

I googled "Schofield Holster".    Of the images returned, I like this one.

Sounds awesome that your going to take them puppies out of the safe and use them.   I'm a big fan of the Slim Jims,  You can make the holster a bit longer than they need to be to get the slimmer look.

I also like a black military style without the flap

 

 

Best regards,

You can always tuck the flap behind the belt .... sneaky, gamer practice... but one I'm not above using... ;)

These aren't for Schofields but my Russians look good in these slim jims, for longer barrels i think slim jims are the way to go.

I'm not sure he has had a "pure" thought since I've known him.   Secondly, How much more embarrassing for him when you whoop up on him with flap holsters :P and schofields

I like the Snake-Eye's holster.  I go similar but with Red Stitching and Red inner Liner on a Black holster.

when i shoot my schofields i use slim jim type holsters,they are cut of a bit on the top for easy transitions.

sometimes i use two crosdraws and carry them but forewards.

Apparently this fellow made both the rigs for schofields in the latest version of 3:10 to Yuma and the Assassination of Jesse James

 

 

Interesting claim. This site, http://www.westernleatherholster.com/western-movie-holsters/

claims they made the holsters for that 2008 3:10 to Yuma. 

They also have many historical holsters as well such as Jesse James. 

 

I correct myself. They made some of the holsters in 3:10 to Yuma.

What is that made from?  (kind of leather)

 

It is a rough-out leather, beyond that, I am not sure. It was from John Bianchi Frontier Gunleather.

Interestingly enough the rig in 3:10 to Yuma with the guns showed up at a local gun store with paperwork authenticating it.  It was appealing, but the tariff was a bit stiff.

I think I've settled on a slim jim design coupled with a Fair Weather Christian cartridge bel with canvas loops.

Howdy

 

Slim Jims are great.

 

I had one made up by El Paso Saddlery a bunch of years ago for my New Model Number Three.

 

Turns out my Schofield fits in it too.
