    It was that thread that made me go JM for my 3 GP100.

    I wonder if the + is the problem. Different cylinder than the standard 686 so it would need a different mold.

    I have a JMCK for my GP100 Wiley Clapp, my new (to me) 686+ PC fits in there pretty well. Mine was ordered three years ago before the 3 GP100 was a listed option.

    The broken edges of the hammer on the PC help with the gut-poke a bit where the Rugers hammer is very sharp. Looking back I should have ordered the holster with a higher cut.

    Despite the cylinder mass and weight, appendix carry of a short-barreled revolver conceals surprisingly well.

    I corresponded with Tony when I bought my M-69

    He said he had a mold that broke, and he doesn't have a gun to work from.

    I wondered about the cylinder flute issue because of my M-69 being 5 shot, but the discussion never really went that far.

    I prefer unfluted holsters to avoid dealing with with the 5/6/7/unfluted issue altogether.

    Hey guys, I just checked with my CNC mold guy to see if he has an L Frame (up to 4" barrel) that will fit un-futted cylinders and the 7 shooter. For whatever reason, I have been getting asked about the L frame quite a bit lately so there may be enough interest to warrant the cost. And of course I may have to buy one for test fitting

    Stand by.
