speaking of which, i need a right and a left holster for a pair of 5.5 remmy .44's.. or just a left if you can match my current right hander which the manufacturer claims he cant do...
I can make one to match.  I'd need you to send me the holster to use as a pattern.   
There's no reason the maker can't do it other than he doesn't want to.   Wylie Leather is still in business up north of me in Laramie Wyoming.

says he cant match the color...
Color would never match perfectly.  Every piece of leather stains differently.   Even different areas of the same hide.   I bet I could get a decent match though.  Might take a little time and effort is all.

well ill let you know after valentines day, my fiance just asked me if i like a pair of dark reddish (ox blood?) holsters she "saw on facebook"

but i really like that ugly ass grey, brown, whatever that color is i just got tho... get a lot of complements on it too!!!

You absolutely need the cowboy holster and belt.   

I am leaning that way so far.
But I really do miss my Lyman GPR

All kidding aside Hylander,   I have been eyeballing the GPR for a while too.  It's a tough decision when choosing how to spend your hard earned recreational money.

if you do Amazon, you can get a really nice loop belt/holster combo new for $45 with a little looking about......





if interested I can find the paperwork and give you the maker/sellers amazon ID

it's Mexican, but the quality is similar to American rigs from the 50s and 60s......thick, and with the concealed "shank" in the holster to stiffen it for fast draw.
had it a couple years and the only complaint I've had with it is the black dye discoloring the 1st set of cartridges I had in the loops.
