Sleeve Waist Collar Wood Leather

I have this holster and would like to know what gun(s) it was made for? It measures 5-1/2”. And, as the pictures show is stamped 10 F. I’m pretty sure the”F” indicates Floral Carved, but I’m at a loss on the 10. Anybody that can offer assistance is greatly appreciated!

That can't be right, because
A - a Colt Anaconda is much larger than a Smith K frame, and
B - there is no way that holster is made for a 4-inch barreled gun.

Would be nice to get a better picture that was smaller. In my computer the picture fills up the whole screen and I have to scroll to see the rest of the holster.

Interesting. According to that chart One Shot posted, it is supposed to fit a Colt D frame or a Smith & Wesson J frame, up to four and a half inch barrel.

According to the picture on that chart, their guns had a closed toe.

It is quite possible that someone with a 2 inch gun, having no need for a holster that will accept a 4 and 1/2 inch, did a little modifying.

I was just going off of information that I found over on the s&w forum. I couldn't find that chart.

That was my thinking…

There’s definitely no signs of modification.

The charts might be different depending on the era.
This chart lists a 10F for a 25 caliber Colt.
Seems more appropriate for the size of the holster.

Hello Kirby: Your holster is definitely for a Colt 1917 .25 Auto. I know because 1. I carry my .25 in that exact one and 2. I purchased the J.M.Bucheimer (R) co. back in 1980 and our main company has been producing different JMB and Bucheimer Clark(TM) models continously. Hope that helps and please disregard many of those charts found on forums. The main co.,J.M
Bucheimer (R) used to change codes to curtail theft by travelling sales reps in those days who accepted checks for orders. It was a bookkeeping thing. Take care! P.S. Any questions about Bucheimer are welcomed. Check our business profile. JM
