I'm getting one of these Tuesday. Maybe 2" S&W K frame holsters might work.
I have a few and will try them.

Yes...a K frame holster will work for the 617/817. I have a Bianchi Shadow for a 2-3" barrel K-frame which fits like a glove.

:) Great! This will relieve my 3 inch model 66 for daily carry; after I run some ammo through it.
I have quite a few holsters to pick from. I'm now carrying Speer 38+P 135gr Short Barrel in the 66 and plan to use them in the 817 for carry.

Thanks for the feedback,

My 817 now has 400 rds through it. Using the Hogue grips and K frame holsters.
Great carry gun.

Anyone have any suggestions in the way of belt holsters for the model 817?
FWIW any Uncle Mike's® holster size 0 (zero) will be a "PERFECT FIT" for a Taurus® 617 or 817. Both of these guns are on the compact frame size and are smaller than a S&W® K frame. I have two Galco® FLETCH™ holsters for K frame guns; while they'll work for the 617/817 the gun is loose in the hoster. I haven't tried Bianchi® but will look into it.
