Greetings Everyone!

I posted in the "Show Us Your Taurus Revolver" thread, but thought I'd also post here to ask for recommendations and advice about holsters for my new-to-me Taurus 689. I am THRILLED to have found exactly what I wanted, which is not an easy task when seeking something that hasn't been made for twenty years.

If anyone can share some answers to the following questions, I'd appreciate it....

- Can anyone recommend a holster for it? I'd like an OWB leather holster, right-hand draw. The gun is old enough that some holster makers don't list it, but it's a common size & shape.

- Does anyone think a replacement for the rear sight is available, and where? OEM or aftermarket...doesn't matter. Mine is fine, but has a ding or two and the while outline of the notch is slightly marred.

- If anyone has a scan of the original papers for this gun (user manual, exploded parts diagram, etc.) and could share the file, I'd appreciate it.:D

Can't wait to shoot this beauty! Taurus 689 Resize 1.jpg

Very Nice, looks similar to my new to me 669 I reviewed a few weeks ago. I don;t have any info on replacement sights or even a link to a manual. I just know my 669 shoots 357 very accurately. Like 6 shots touching in the bullseye at 15 yards accurate. The rear site looks a lot like the 627 rear site, that may be worth a look. The 669 is on the left.

I had a 689 in 6" barrel.
Traded it away.
Worst thing I ever did. It locked up like a bank vault and shot beautifully.

Bobbr3...Looks like it's time to get into leather holster making. It'll be a great Winter hobby!

Great gun you have there.

For holsters any one of them that will fit a Taurus 65 or 66 will fit the 689 or 669. I go with leather holsters only for revolvers. https://www.taurus-guru.com/taurus-689/holsters https://www.americasgunstore.com/ho...taurus-revolver-holsters/taurus-689-holsters/ https://www.americasgunstore.com/ho...rs/taurus-66-holsters/taurus-66-4-0-holsters/

That'll cover most things for you. Call the parts place or e-mail them because that way you get up to date what they have and do not.

I bought a leather holster for my S & W 620 that also fits my Taurus 627 (4" 7 round .357). I will check this evening if it is a Galco or Desantis but I image it will also work for your 689. Beautiful pistol by the way congratulations.

I'm glad you were able to find a stainless. A rare bird indeed.

Any holster for a S&W K/L frame ought to work for the 689. I use a Bianchi for my 6 inch 689.
