Question about 51 Conversions or 72 Open Tops

Recommended Posts

I was wondering for someone who may possibly own both or either.

 

I am wondering if a typical slim jim style holster that was form fitted for the 1851 Navy will hole a 51 Conversion or 72 Open Top?

 

I have the 1851 Navy Revolvers that have a pretty good set of holsters and I am thinking about either converting them to cartridge or possibly getting a pair of Open Tops but was wondering if the holsters I have now would still fit?

 

 

Thanks.

They will probably fit but the ejector housing could possibly cause some tightness which might benefit from wet molding.

The ejector housing is precisely what I was wondering about. Wasn't sure if that would let it fit. Thanks.

It would depend on how snug the lower part of the holster is, some are more form fitting than others.

Thanks. We don't have any good gun shops in my area that carry cowboy guns so I can go feel things and see for myself. Everything around here seems to carry mostly AR, AK and Glock stuff. I like that stuff too but my love is Cowboy guns.
