    They also had the same basic spec produced by Ruger on the security six, GP 100 (GPNY), and SP101 (SPNY).

    And, period holsters are probably a bad idea, for the OP:

    Not being a Ruger guy, about seven years + ago I helped broker the sale of a very good condition 4” GPNY between a detective in my squad and a PO in our precinct. The detective had carried the GPNY while he was a NYC Housing cop.
    That same PO (now a sergeant) contacted me the other day saying he was looking to sell some pistols. Guess what I bought? I figured I’d add it to my NYPD and SCPD collection.

    I’ve owned 2 GPNYs. Very cool guns, but heavy and big for .38 spec only.

    … which undoubtedly makes them creampuffs to shoot.

    Oh yes. I remember particularly liking the way that Buffalo Bore’s hot version of the FBI load rolled into the compact grips that come on the GPNY. Aside from it being a boat anchor, it was a perfect shooting gun.

    Gotta find a better set of grips for it, and maybe some nice leather. This is probably as close to a BBQ gun as I'll probably ever own.

I am assuming thats what the sight are regulated for. Any idea where I could get a holster for this, preferably something period correct. Any help or information is greatly appreciated.
    Nice pick-up! It’s not period-correct but I can definitely vouch for the Kramer scabbard. Thumb breaks are impractical on these DAOs but the thin, stiff horsehide of the Kramer retains the gun very well and essentially lasts forever. I have a Kramer IWB #3 for a G19 that has seen regular use since I bought it in 1998 and it is in as good condition now as the day I bought it.

    I love my 64-5. It’s not NY-1 cool, but I do love it. I would like to have it bead blasted.
