Leather Holster Option for the LCR - Discovered Unintentionally

I just bought this Azula leather IWB holster from Amazon. I bought it for a Charter Arms .44special Bulldog as that model is what it was advertised as designed for. It supposedly fits a few Charter Arms .38spl models as well.

However, upon examining the holster I received it's clearly obvious it was molded from an LCR. It has the characteristic Ruger push-button cylinder release, the same swooping trigger guard, the upper polymer hammer shroud and the bulge where the back-strap of the Hogue tamer grip ends. It even has a faint outline of the Ruger seal imprint located on the top side of the polymer frame on the reverse side of the holsters upper flap! The cylinder imprint looks like it was taken from the fluted .357mag or 9mm model so it should fit those models precisely.

What I got looks different and nicer in person then what the Amazon photo would indicate:

The Azula is made in South Africa (when is the last time you bought anything made in SA?). It is not top grade leather work but is decent for the money. I'm only putting this out there as an inexpensive leather IWB option for those of you with an LCR who don't like the nylon or plastic jobs and prefer model specific holsters.

This is not the first time I purchased a holster intended for a certain gun that I ended up using for a totally different make and model. I don't know if they are all like this or if they just sent me the wrong holster by mistake, but I'm not returning it as I was thinking about getting an LCR in 9mm anyway. Now I have yet another reason to.
