BIANCHI INTERNATIONAL is a modern day success story. One of the modern BIG THREE makers, with top of the line manufactured holsters Bianchi has carried and developed a huge line of holsters and top of the line accessories for the sportsman, professional competitor and law enforcement and military.
Originally a working Police Officer in Southern California in the mid 1950's, John Bianchi started making holsters in 1958. He wanted a holster to his own taste that he felt was safe and effective for him as a Police Officer. Friends demanded his products and soon evolved an early "garage" business. That has grown to a 110,000 square foot business today, not only manufacturing, but also dedicated to research and development.
Classics like the Thumbsnap, The X15 Shoulder rig (think Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry) and the $100,000 holster, the great AUTODRAW 3000 were all Bianchi originals. I have little doubt many of these are future collectibles.
Bianchi holsters definately mark a turning point in holster design that took place in the early 1970s, spawning numerous patents and designs that are still the standards 47 years later. Taking advice and buying patents from other major manufacturers, using creative market strategies, but mostly just using the best materials and workmanship available has gained BIANCHI a top reputation as the modern working mans holster.
Early holsters were made in Monrovia, California, but BIANCHI operates out of Temecula,California today and continues into the 21st century with wok in synthetic space age materials as well as fine traditional leathers. When you buy Bianchi, new or used, you know you are getting a holster to last a career or a lifetime.
This is for a USED, quality made BIANCHI leather vertical shoulder holster in plain brown for LARGE DOUBLE ACTION REVOLVERS.
The holster is double stitched at the stress points, and features secure snaps. It is marked with the BIANCHI Logo, and model PHANTOM X2100.
THIS IS A RIGHT HAND DRAW HOLSTER
This is an upgraded and more model specific version of the X15.
Slicked and coated edges make for a professional finish on this rig, which also has a FULL SUEDE LINING. A cut out is present for larger target sights and there are also cylinder cut outs for proper seating of the gun and greater retention.
A special dual spring is incorporated in the holster and closes firmly around the gun, yet allows a fast "breakfront" draw. No retention strap is needed for regular activities, as the V Spring will hold your gun.
The straps are adjustable and the holster snaps to your belt for stability and concealment.
The vertical holster position and style provides a fast natural cross draw, or even an off hand reverse "cavalry" draw.
The harness is the Y Style, which is lighter and comes off more quickly. The off side has an adjustable ELASTIC cloth strap for comfort and freedom of movement. This is washable in soap and water.
The gun side is soft leather, cut wide to support the gun weight.
The leather is flexible and alive with no tears, rips or cracks.

The holster is Used, good condition. There exterior surface has only a couple light surface scratches, some minor impressions.. The lining shows some holstering marks, but no tears or damage. There is an even light patina from age. The "lips" of this holster are strong and line up correctly when a gun is holstered for good retention.
There is still stretch to the off side elastic, but you will probably want to replace that ina season or two.
The leather is flexible and alive and there is no loose stitching, or damage.

An EBAY MEMBER since 2003, I have a 100% LIFETIME feedback rating, not just the last 12 months that EBAY lets you see.
As an experienced seller and researcher of gun leather & other products, I make every effort to ensure a proper application of gun to holster or grips to gun.
However, misfits will still may occur a very small percentage of the time. Sometimes the gun is not the same year vintage of the holster and improvements and changes in the gun model may not be reflected in a holster that was made before the gun was made.
I work to be a 5 Star 100% feedback seller.
