In need of holster recommendation.....

I have a Smith and Wesson 657 41 mag. It has a 7" barrel. Currently I'm using a cheap Uncle Mike's sidekick holster that doesn't really fit it, but its the biggest side carry holster I have been able to find in local stores.
I want to get a hip holster that fits it properly. Can anyone recommend one to me??

Check out Galco or go to S&W site they may have a holster compatibility chart. If you look at Galco check out the Kodiak Hunter while not a hip holster it is very nice I'm considering it for my 7 1/2 Ruger SBH. Oh by the way good choice in the 41 mag love mine.

Re: In need of holster recommendation.....

I just checked out the Smith and Wesson site and I couldn't find the chart you're talking about. Also, they stopped making this model about 4 years ago so I don't know if they will have it on there anyways.
I don't really wanna shell out the money to get a custom one but I may not have any other choice if I want a hip holster.

Any holster designed to fit an N frame Smith should work.

If you're talking outside the waist band, I tend to like the pancake holster with or without a thunbbreak strap, try DeSantis. Midway probably has them and a bunch of others. For something a little nicer and maybe more options try Kramer Leather.

+1. These are really good pancake style holsters. The guy that makes them used to be in Alaska, he's in Arizona now. I carry my 4 inch 29 and my 6 inch 629 in Simply Rugged pancake holsters. They are comfortable, sturdy, and reasonably priced.

The simply rugged holsters are nice, I used to own one for my 686. Can't go wrong with it. I've since switched to a chest holster, and will never go back to belt carry.

Stock image, not me.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.
