Here's a couple of successful reblocking jobs. The first one is an early 50's Heiser FBI holster made for a short barreled S&W K-Frame that I reblocked to fit a compact 1911. The second is a Lawrence Holster made in the 1930's for an S&W 38/44 Heavy Duty or Colt New Service. When I got it, it was as flat as a pancake, and unused! It now holds a Freedom Arms M83 6"!
