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.
