What other brand of pistol is the K6S most shaped like?

Just bought my wife a K6S for her to carry on her horseback adventures and she wants a custom leather holster made.
My problem is that most of the vendors I have found do not list the Kimber K6S as a size/shape option. I was wondering if I picked a different similar snub nosed revolver for them to use as a form, which would be closest in dimensions. Ie Ruger SP101, S&W Ladysmith, etc.

J-frame Bodyguard

hello! A Blackhawk pocket holster #4 works well with the K6 but isn't really formed to fit. Here's some pics with my S&W Bodyguard....judge for yourself.

Note: the middle pic ....can you see the K6 under the Bodyguard?

Not sure if this recommendation will pay off or not, but I've used Old West Reproductions (Old West Reproductions®, Inc. - 406.273.2615) for customer rigs. Give the owner, Rick Bachman, a shout to see if he can make what your wife wants.

Maybe you should try giving Ken from KG holster a call, he's a KT member and he builds a quality holster for a reasonable price. It's worth a try.

I have two of Matt Whitefields. They are very well made and he usually has one especially for the K6S ready to go. Check "the bay" or give him a call. Good guy.
