What model holsters will also fit a New Vaquero 3.75" barrel?

Trying to find a decent but not $140 holster for my new .45 Birdshead SA.
Anyone know what other models of guns will work, in size?

For instance, would a K-Frame S&W 4" work?

A Cimarron/Uberti El Patrone 3.5" ?

Also, will a New Vaquero fit in a holster made for a (old) Vaquero?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Well, nobody wanted to take a shot at this one I guess.

I ended up buying a $50 Desantis "Doc Holliday 3.5" Barrel" version on Ebay.

It is an almost perfect fit. If you really like to jam your gun down as far as you can, the muzzle extends 1/4" past the leather (which makes sense, since my birdshead has a 3.75" barrel. But if you just put it in till snug, it is just right. I'll post a photo of the actual gun and holster when I get a chance.



Oh what the heck, snapped a couple of photos

Nice lookin' rig, trooplewis. I opted for a "Tom Threepersons" from El Paso Saddlery at 80 bucks. I like yours better.

Keep an eye on Tombstone Tactical, which is where I got mine. You can still back order them, so I assume there are some left in the current batch. In the last two months they periodically have them in stock, then sell out...

Quiet 1, I looked at El Paso Saddlery, but every time I built one like I wanted online, the price kept going over $100. I just did not want to spend that much for a holster.
