Default Holster for 2 1/2 inch S&W 686

I recently bought a S&W 686 with a 2 1/2 inch barrel. Looking for a holster but everything with that length bbl is made for the J frame models. I'm not a big revolver person but can't understand why I can't find one. Looked at a gun shop and over the internet but no luck. Hard to believe they don't make them but that's the way it looks.
Is this the case or can someone kindly point me in the right direction?

Blade-Tech. I've bought a few of its products. Delivery is quick, usually 1-2 weeks, and quality is high. The website indicates they've got a holster designed for you gun.

Price Western Leather (PWL) makes a very good holster for the 2.5 inch 686, and many other gun models. Here is a link to the company website and a photo of my 686 in the holster:

For wheel guns, Mitch Rosen, Galco, and if you have extra dough and don't mind waiting, Del Fatti.

Thanks for this, I was looking to try out my same 686 snub in IDPA and I like that these guys also make some nice speedloader carriers. Like the OP I've been having a hard time finding a good holster that fits the L-frame snub...

Look for a K frame holster for the 686!

Are you saying a K frame holster will fit a 686?
