Must be a few on e-bay. Watch out for post-war production Holsters with the steel strap tab.

Seen some rods on ebay but there seems to be different length of rods, I guess there the same as the webley, not sure what length it should be for a 5 inch barrel, cant rely on ebayers knowledge all the time. There's a coulpe of holsters ive seen but the prices are ridiculous, maybe thats what ill have to pay, looked at the one's SOF have got for £50 at the victory show but they look a bit iffy!

You need to know the length of rod you need or with a tanker holster it protrudes out the bottom into your leg.

The WWII type ones for the .38 Enfield No.2 and Webley MkIV revolvers are 9.5" long. The earlier ones are brass and the later ones are steel. DS Solutions have them:

Beware of the US made copper plated steel rods which are too long to fit in a UK holster. Example here:
