Holster for a Ruger 3.75" vaquero?

ruger44.jpg

Does anyone have a recommendation for a left handed leather holster to fit a 3.75" bbl .44mag vaquero?

Prefer a pancake style OWB.

Thanks

I was not aware of factory 3.75" Vaqueros .44 mag or otherwise. IF it was not factory done that short, then its unlikely to find a commercial holster made to fit it perfectly.

Sorry I don't have any suggestions, other than look for a holster to fit the regular 4 5/8" barrel and live with the fact that your gun doesn't reach all the way to the bottom of it.

Good luck!

Yes it is factory. They were a Talo exclusive. Ruger's serial number lookup puts the date it shipped at 2016.

Can't help with a pancake style; probably need a custom maker. All my Blackhawks ride in El Paso Saddlery holsters. They make some good ones, left or right, any barrel length. I just got a Tom Threepersons for a flattop 44 Spl.

Many thanks, I was able to order exactly what I wanted from them at a reasonable price!

I ordered an open top belt slide. Model BH52.

I have an IWB holster for my Beretta 92F compact from them and it is top notch for sure.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

I own one of the same Rugers in 45Colt and it is a great shooter. Did you get your holster yet? If so how do you like it?
