Our Western Rigs are truly Heirloom Quality projects. All cartridge belts and holsters are made with dual layer premium Herman Oak Leather. Our starting price for both cartridge belt and 1 holster is $350 depending on the barrel length of your weapon.



To get started:

  • Know the style of belt that you want first (Sally Brown, Straight Cut or Buscadero.
  • What color? (see footer below to view color examples: Natural, Saddle Tan, Chocolate or Black)
  • Single holster rig or double? 
  • Straight draw or cross draw holsters?
  • We need Make, model and barrel length of your weapon(s)
  • Do you want Conchos? (see gallery below for choices or send us your own)
  • Color of buckle? (see gallery below to view the clipped corner Brass or Chrome plated buckles) This buckle can easily be changed out after you receive your rig if you had something else in mind.
  • Do you want a full rig tooling design, no tooling design or a simple border tooling?
  • The number of cartridge loops we provide is strictly depending on the length of the belt and the size of the rounds. This will be determined by the maker when your belt is being made.
  • The BEST way to measure yourself for this rig is to wear whatever clothes you would typically be wearing along with a pants belt. Use a cloth measuring tape and wrap it around you. We need the measurement in inches where the 2 ends meet. Be aware that most western rigs are worn just below the pants belt. Some people like to slant the belt lower on one side so please take that into account when measuring. Look in the mirror and confirm the placement of the belt- especially in the back. Please note that this is a custom order and is not refundable. We depend on YOU to give us the right sizing!
  • When you receive your western rig, it will be very firm. You'll need to wear it to break it in. We top coat the leather to seal in the dye and give it a little bit of water resistance, yet it IS NOT waterproof! Water will spot the leather and this cannot be fixed. If you want to apply a waterproofing agent. Use Kiwi Boot Protector. This product, if used as directed, does not drastically change the color of the leather. DO NOT use mink oil!
  • Typical lead time for completion of Western Rig orders can vary from 6 to 16 weeks depending on the time of the year. We are slower in the summer and busier Fall-Spring. We can give you a more accurate estimate when your order is placed.

History

 Western Rigs are in itself, a true and original art form. It has a long and colorful history and had peaked in the 1940's and 50's during the Western movie era. It's roots can be traced back to the end of the Civil War and continued through the frontier period of the American West. After the turn of the century, Western lawmen, especially the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Border Patrol contributed many ideas to saddle and holster makers.
