Civil war 1860 Colt army holster patterns

Recommended Posts

I'm very new to this forum however I've been searching for months, online for a simple Colt army holster pattern or even a slimjim pattern. I even drove several miles to a Tandy leather where the guy told me the Al Stolman book was sure to have one but it doesn't, lol. Anyone here have what I. Looking for? Thank You!

You are probably going to have a hard time finding a pattern exactly what you need.  If you have the Stohlman book it tells you exactly what to do to create your own.  Basically you fold a piece of heavy paper in the middle, put the gun on it on the barrel, sights down.  then roll it to the left, for a right hand gun, and trace around the gun.  Add about an inch to the tracing rounding out the curves, cut that out and fold it over and trace around it now you have the pouch.  For the belt loop you need to refer to the book, I don't have it right in front of me but it will walk you through the process.

I don't know if you are still looking for a pattern, but one of the members on this forum, Brazzos Jack, was kind enough to share a pattern which he created for the holster.
