Smith & Wesson
In 1852 Smith & Wesson was founded by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson. Their first pistol was unsuccessful and soon after the company started struggling financially. Both partners made the difficult decision to sell their company to a shirt manufacturer that was owned by Oliver Winchester. S&W was later renamed “Volcanic Repeating Arms” which became the “Winchester Repeating Arms Company. Wesson Stayed with “Volcanic Repeating Arms” for several months and Smith decided to leave the company. In 1856 Wesson left “volcanic Repeatin Arms and rejoined Smith to form the “Smith & Wesson Revolver Company”. Today S&W has been a unit of “American Outdoor Brands Corporation” since 2016. It has been decided that S&W will Stand on it’s own again. It will be splitting from “American Outdoor Brands corporation”. This will take into effect later on this year (2020). S&W continues to develop iconic revolvers.
Most of our belt holsters for the Smith & Wesson models have a slight FBI cant that helps narrow the profile of the gun. This makes it more concealable. For those individuals seeking a holster with greater retention, we also offer a holster with a thumb-break design. We have a variety of styles to choose from.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit and contoured to the hip for comfort. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our concealed carry designs secure your firearm while still providing instant access when needed. Our holsters are built to last a lifetime.
