  1. Hi All Thanks for all the nice comments, unfortunately the pistol is only a replica, made by Kolser and the cartridges are inert. Regards Forester
  2. Hi All Picture of finished rig as promised. Forester
  3. Thanks for all the feedback, but I think some of the titles might be a bit long to put on Ebay or Etsy. Might go with "Old School Style Holster". Regards Forester
  4. Hi All Thanks everybody for the nice comments! Regards Forester.
  5. Hi All I saw this type of holster online and thought it looked old school, so I made a pattern and this is what I came up with, I think it turned out really nice. Just don't know what to call it when I try to sell it? Also in the process of making a belt for it. Thanks all in advance. Regards Forester
  6. Magnificent Seven, Steve McQueen, Gun Rig. Copy from the great film or as close as I can get it, couldn't find a similar buckle so went with a chap buckle.

    Beautiful work!
  8. Hi All It took me while but this is the version of John Wayne's Suede Belt gun rig i am happy with, belt is made from sand coloured premium suede split with a 3-4 oz veg tan inner core to give it a bit of rigidity. Holsters are made from 6-7 oz veg tan leather, back to back, both sized for a colt with a 4 and 3/4 inch barrel. Hope you like. Regards Forester
  9. Hi All The holster is lined so the stitching at the bottom could be there to secure the lining, just a thought. Regards Forester
  10. Hi All Thanks for your input, i think i will insert a toe plug. As for the question on the stitching line, i was going to put it just shy of the camouflage stamping which makes it just under a 1/4 inch or 5mm, should be enough, have done it with less. Attached picture is what i have been working off. Regards Forester.
  11. Hi All Work in progress, this is my take on President Theodore Roosevelt's colt .45 holster, to fit a 7.5" barrel. My question is, does anybody know if this holster had a sewn in toe plug or was it open. Regards Forester
  12. Hi All A customer asked if i could make this gun rig but he wanted it so his friend could also use it , the customers waist size is 42" and his friends waist is 46". After a bit of head scratching i came up with this, longer billet with more holes to fit both, with 2 holes each way for adjustment. Has anybody else had to do this? He also wanted 2 holsters to fit a Colt .45 with 5" barrel and a holster to fit a Scofield with a 7" barrel ( my schofield sticks out a bit because it has a 8" barrel). By the way the rig is not finished, just have to burnish the edges, fit straps on the holsters, hammer thongs and a final polish. Regards Forester
