IWB holsters for SP101?

I'm used to carrying slim semi's but lately have been wanting to carry my DAO 2 1/4" SP101 more. It's too big/heavy for me to pocket it comfortably (my LCP is as big as I'll go for pocket). I don't like OWB unless I'm open carrying out in the woods and I can't find a IWB I like.

Those that I've tried all have the clip/belt loop in the center of the holster, right on the cylinder making it seem ultra thick. I want something like the Comp-Tac MTAC or Milt Sparks VMII but can't seem to find one for the SP101. I carry my Bersa Thunder in a AKJ Concealco that I really like and was thinking about just ordering one of those for the SP101 but thought I'd get suggestions on others first.

What are yall suggestions for a good holster that has the belt loops spread out too make it not as thick?

Almost any quality holster sized for a Colt Detective Special or a S&W K frame will fit an SP. But since manufacturer's ideas of how snug the fit should be you should try it on your gun before you buy if possible and check the retention and ease of draw. I also use several holsters made for a Charter Bulldog that fit the SP very nicely. The SP is essentially a "medium " sized revolver.

I used to carry an SP101 DAO...

I used an AKJ Concealco IWB...super holster with off-set belt loops, which spreads the weight and keeps the whole package thinner. Adjustable for ride height and somewhat for cant angle.

I also used a Crossbreed Qwikclip IWB. Similar to their famous Supertuck, but with only one attachment point, which is a large clip. The only thing that I did not like about this holster was the cant angle...they claim it is adjustable...but adjustment made the ride height too high for me...

When I carried an sp-101, I used a TTGunleather Mike's Special. Upside was that once I wussed out due to the weight and got a Bodyguard .38, it fit beautifully. When I went mainstream and got a 642, it still fit. Was a little loose, but pressure from the belt made it a-ok. FWIW, I bartend 13 hours at a time. This involves climbing over kegs, cases of beer, etc. Odd positions, reasonable activity, and always seemed very secure. Off topic, I went another direction and started carrying a G19, got a Minotaur IWB. Made carrying a bigger gun even more comfortable, so I would say either of these would be golden.

Remora makes some good IWB holsters for your SP101. That is what I use when I carry. It is very comfortable. Check them out.

Bianchi Pro 100 series: high backed to protect against hammer spur rub, plenty of leather to fully cover the trigger guard and very comfortable.
