The heart of our model #200AW is the adjustable tension welt that was first developed by Hank Sloan of the FBI.
Elmer Keith also had a hand in this design by requesting that a shroud be incorporated to help prevent sharp, checkered hammers from wearing holes in his jacket liners.
Because of its heavy-duty design, the #200AW is best described as being a field, or range type holster.
In construction, we use a heavy 11-12 oz. Vegetable tanned cowhide for the un-lined holster, and 2 layers of 6½ -7oz. for the lined. The adjustable, slotted welt is skived and tapered to prevent the welt from backing out once the screw is tightened. It is then meticulously hand stitched in place for long lasting durability.
The #200AW is available for most revolvers with barrel lengths up to 7½ " and can be fitted to belts up to 2" in width. Standard cant is muzzle to the rear (FBI), straight drop available on request. Colors available are black, cordovan or natural (tan)
