chest rig for a 7.5 inch Ruger bisley?

Stumbled upon a like new Ruger super blackhawk Bisley for a deal I couldn't pass up...
I usually carry my large from or long barrel revolvers on my chest...I'm a big of Rugers chest rig, but they only make it for 4inch models... and this being a single action it seems a lot harder to find a chest rig that is acceptable.... so do any of you carry your 7-1/2 inch single action revolver in a chest or bandoleer setup? Pics would be great

I have three of the El Paso Saddlery "1942 Tanker's" for both revolvers and autos. They are well made, comfortable, and you can have them jazzed up if you like. They offer them up to 8 3/8".

Bianchi makes a nice chest rig. It's geared for hunting, and very comfortable. Nylon, but good quality.

Well, it's not the setup you are asking, but this is how I carry mine. Simply Rugged holster, on one of their belts. A good stout belt helps distribute the load of the gun. Crappy cell phone pic, but here it is:

Bianchi - +1

I carried several different longer-barreled Ruger's & Smith's in Bianchi's Ranger 4100 H.U.S.H. (HUnting Shoulder Holster) cross-chest, bandollier-type Cordua Nylon rig.

I used black, but IIRC, it's also available in camo - and sized either for scoped or unscoped particular handguns.

I bought the rig with both a retaining strap and the optional flap (both are Velcro-attached to the back, snapped onto the face).

I liked how the empty Bianchi holster could be easily slid around to the back of my shoulder when I was stalking or sitting, with the gun "in hand" (as it should be when hunting).

Rusty Sherrick Leather. He made me a beauty for a Super Redhawk.

Price was reasonable.

I carry many large bore/long barrel revolvers. I also have a Ruger SBH Bisley Hunter with a 7.5 inch barrel. I highly recommend SIMPLY RUGGED HOLSTERS. I have four of them and use them all. Their Chesty Puller rig just simply works.!!

I've two for my Super Redhawk, both scoped and naked. They were made by Bob Allen back in the day. They are no longer around, but Bianchi makes a very similar rig.
