Western style holster/belt for S&W 686...?

Does anyone have a western style holster setup for their 686? Recommend a brand? It's a 4" model I have, would prefer low hang instead of high.

I have a left handed Bianchi "1898" for a 4" k-frame S&W. Bought it used several years ago. It is plain but functional. The belt has a cutout that the holster fits in to make it drop low. Don't know if it is still made.

Call Kirkpatrick they can make exactly what you want, and their work is excellent. I have 2 of their rigs and couldn't be happier.

You're looking for a buscadero belt with cartridge loops and a holster for a 686?

Check out Hunter gunleather. I have a buscadero belt and holster for my Redhawk 44mag. I like this setup because I carry a backpack with a waistbelt when hiking, and the dropped holster keeps the gun far enough from the bulky pack-belt. Even got it left-handed.

You'll want to look into their 2200 model holster and a belt with 38/357 cartridge loops and a right handed drop, I think. Whole setup should cost less than $100. Even better if you can shop well on the internet. I got my outfit for about $60 + shipping, but I waited for the perfect sales and everything.

You might consider a "Patton" style holster.

Do they have a website?
