Flap holster for Woodsman Sport 2nd series



Log in to see fewer ads
In the past I've had custom flap holsters made for Woodsman I owned at the time. A recent addition, a Woodsman Sport (4 1/2") 2nd series (transition version) needs a leather flap holster. Just a plain working style. Without going the custom route are there any proper factory flap holsters currently available? I think that Triple K made one at some time. Anyone have any experience with one?

4 1/2 inch second and third series sport holsters are hardest to find on the vintage market. Lawrence made some. Heiser flap holsters look mostly for first series guns. I found a nice unmarked floral carved holster for my second series sport, but it isn't a flap holster. I have a Heiser flap holster for my pre-Woodman target.

I don't know if the man will do it, but if you will look at the Rusty Dog Leather, mr. Gerald Greene is a super leather guy. He has a website under the above name. Most of the holsters I have from him are 1st quality. Just my 2 cents, good luck. Happy shooting!

My 2 cents---don't use a holster and chance wearing the bluing of these classics.

mxl: For collectable Woodsman I would agree with you. All my Woodsman are well used but in very good shooting condition. I have carried them in backpacks, in shoulder holsters, and belt holsters when hunting or just woods walking in our mountains. I've decided, rather than have a leather flap holster custom made, I will use a basic every day style nylon flap holster on a bandoleer style setup. Thanks for the replies.

I have a holster Mr. Greene made for my 2nd Series Match Target that is nice. It is not a flap, but has a strap. But he does make flappers, too.

If you get a custom made holster a good leather crafter can make it lined with fine glove leather, or with the rough side out which serves the same purpose. I've made them that way and they are gentle on the bluing, and the neat thing is the rough side out never gets scratched up in thick brush. If it gets dirty or scarred up just give it a once over with a wire brush!
If you lived really close I'd build you one but I can't do it without having the gun to work from.
