Smith & Wesson 4 Inch Revolver Holster Laredo Texas 1970s Exc Black Leather GL0450  Non-Guns > Holsters and Gunleather > Revolver
Description: From the collection of our favorite Navy Firefighter comes this very attractive Black Leather Holster to fit most 4 inch barreled Medium Frame Revolvers. Manufacturer is stamped on the reverse side, American Sales & Mfg Co of Laredo, Texas. We estimate it was manufactured some time in the mid to late 1970s; or early 1980s – at any rate, before the onset of black nylon holster popularity. It is typical of well made, but inexpensive at the time, leather holsters that were mostly hand made. Most of the ones like it we sold during that period came from Bob Gibbs Leather. American Sales was a competitor to the Gibbs / Muckleroy Company. Construction is genuine American Cow, leather, Not Chinese Nylon. Leather is two ply, almost 1/5 inch thick, with double stitching over the entire edge system and heavy single cord back tab stitching. Retention system consists of a one ply, but very thick, hammer strap secured by nickel plated brass and steel snap. Surfaces are smooth black dyed throughout, and this holster is not lined. Surface detractions are minimal, only some scouring on the outer body, as the photos show. The strap has never been stretched; it will stretch within 2 weeks to go over the hammer of most any medium framed revolver with 4 inch barrel or shorter, chambered in .22, .38, or .357 Magnum Caliber. It was manufactured before the onset of full lug heavy barrels like the Smith & Wesson 686 and Ruger GP100 Revolvers. It was designed for medium or heavy barrel revolvers without the full lug, like Smith & Wesson Models 10, 15, 19, 64, 65, 67; and Ruger Speed Six and Security Six Revolver – but not for one with a barrel like a Colt Python. The Taurus 82 heavy barrel showing in some of our photos is correct for this holster, and as always with this type holster a person will have to pull hard to get the strap in place at first, but within a couple of weeks the strap will stretch. The reason the strap was never stretched was, this holster housed a 1935 Beretta .32 Automatic; it was not fitted at all to that pistol. Holsters like this sold in their day new for less than $20 apiece. In case anyone is not aware of inflation over the past 35 years, a Taurus 82 sold for less than $100 at the time; and a Smith & Wesson Model 10 sold for about $150. Adjusted for inflation, we’re offering this genuine American Texas Made Holster for only $ 39.00.
