Restored Post 54: The Mystery of Lewis Holster

Updated: Dec 13, 2022

The Lewis holsters are as well-known as their Clark counterparts, and as commonly encountered on auction sites if one wants to collect them. But doggone it, we know f-all about who Ed Lewis was or his company.

Oh, I have bits of compelling information about Lewis, and examples of his holsters galore, but the research is too uncertain to say much more than that.

Right now I'm intrigued to find this one that is marked for the 2-1/2" K frame that I expect m/b the Combat Magnum. Likely this will lead to more dating certainty because we have more facts about Lewis at the end of its operations than at the beginning. I won't give up on his trail just as I didn't give up on finding out what happened to Jelly Bryce's English wife Minnie/Sandra from birth to death; when no one prior knew any more than the Sandra part.

Read more in my book titled "Holstory -- Gunleather of the Twentieth Century -- the Second Edition" that is available at and printed for you/shipped to you in USA.
