I have a black Bianchi flap holster for 4 5/8 Blackhawk. It fits the 50th Anniversary 357 very well. How old would this holster be? All the pictures I have seen of Bianchi holsters are tan. How rare is the black? Is it any older or newer than the tan ones? Thanks. :?: :?: :?:

Most likely someone dyed it black. It wasn't ever offered in black to my knowledge. But,, I too have a black one & it's been dyed,,,!

Contender: Thanks. I took a closer look. It does look like it has been dyed black. They did a pretty good job of it. I wouldn't have bought it if it were tan. However...If I had known...maybe I could have talked 'em down more on the price!
