ABOUT OUR OLD WEST HOLSTERS AND GUNBELTS Since 1988 I've been researching and making authentic pre 1900 Old West gun leather for the cowboy re-enactor and SASS shooter. Since then I can account for reproducing over 100 variations of holsters that I've seen in museums, private collections or period photos. I've branched out to reproduce the Hollywood gun leather of the "B" westerns of the 1930s and 40s, the fast draw rigs from the TV westerns of the late 50s and the stylized belt and holster sets of the "spaghetti" westerns of the early 70s. All these leather goods are personally designed, hand cut, hand sewn, oiled and dyed to your specifications. True custom work. I've recreated Old West gun rigs for all the single action guns, the cap & ball revolvers of the 1840s to 1860s and even for more modern double action guns. The items you see on the site are available for immediate delivery for the guns specified in the caption. If you need something else, something similar,something for a different gun or of a different size, please inquire either by phone or email. I'll quote a price and estimated time of delivery. Check the catagory periodically as I get to post more items; holsters, gunbelts, bullet loop belt slides, etc, etc.Sorry, At present I no longer have the time to make modern holsters. $

Arvo Ojala Style Fast Draw Holster & Belt. "Hollywood Fast Draw Holsters" were designed and manufactured by famous movie gun coach Arvo Ojala and used by most of the TV and movie cowboys of the late 1950's and 1960's. Arvo passed away in July of 2005. In his honor I am offering copies of his work that was called by many the best fast draw holsters ever made. I offer you many options based on this style starting with simple unlined rigs with straight belts at $135 to unlined contoured belts at $160 to fully lined, contoured, single rigs (as shown) for $375. Double rigs are also available. Please contact me for prices. For guns with up to 7 1/2" barrels. Prices reflect belts up to size 44. $sample shown
Arvo Ojala Style "Roughout" One of the variations offered in Hollywood Fast Draw Holsters was a rig made using split grain or "roughout" leather. I offer only fully lined roughout rigs. Because of the extra work in hand sewing these belt and holster sets the price is slightly higher. The single rig shown with a contoured belt and 24 bullet loops is $430.00. Please contact me for prices of other variations. $sample shown
Spaghetti Western Fast draw Holster & Belt. Holster maker Andy Anderson made the "spaghetti western" holster first used by Clint Eastwood. Soon it became popular with many other Hollywood actors.

Roughout sets are priced at $295 with 12 bullet loops like the originals and $325 for 24 handsewn loops. Available with a 5 degree muzzle forward tilt (as shown) or the 15 degree "walk & draw" tilt as Anderson called it. Prices shown are for guns with up to a 7 1/2" barrel and belts up to size 44. $sample shown
"B" Western Movie Gunrigs During the golden-age of Hollywood "B" western movies (1930's & 1940's) heros and singing cowboys wore very fancy single and double holster Buscadaro gunbelts that were totally cinema creations and bore no resemblance to anything worn by real working cowboys of the old west. Many of these elaborate sets came from the shop of Edward H. Bohlin. Because these items are usually one of a kind creations that we calaborate on or they are copies of the rigs worn by Hoppy, Roy, Gene, et al, You and I must discuss your wants before we settle on a price. These can get expensive depending on the amount of decoration and precious metals you want to hang around your hips. Just one classic "B" western set is shown which utilizes hundreds of gold plated dots and two silver dollar conchas. $sample shown
Complete Bat Masterson Sets The unique cross draw holster used by Gene Barry in the 1950's TV show and the other appropriate acessories can be made to order.

It has 24 .44/.45 cal. bullet loops , an engraved silver plated buckle and two silver plated conchas that secure the bullet loop strips to the belt. Like everything else I make, this is completely hand sewn. The holster is my own design. $265.00
Dress Gunbelt & Holster Set. This holster is for a single action army revolver with a 4 3/4" barrel. A cast, high relief, silver plated concha is set onto the retainer strap.

The Chestnut Ridge This one of my own designs that I believe allows the cowboy action shooter to have a traditionally styled holster that offers the ability to re-holster quickly during those timed events. This example fits a single action army revolver with a 4 3/4" barrel. It has a double row of border tooling and a small silver plated, engraved concha set onto the retainer strap. $68.00
The Moran Brothers This holster is named for the pair of leather crafters who set up shop in 1880's Montana. This example has been slightly modified to accept the adjustable sight of a 4 5/8" or 5 1/2" Ruger Blackhawk or the top latch of a 5" Smith & Wesson Schofield. $sample shown

The Bill Longley In the late 1950's Edward H. Bohlin added his design to the crop of Hollywood fast draw holsters being utilized by the TV western stars. Bohlin opted to lower the position of his holster with an extra long drop loop on the Buscadaro style belt and a hoilster with a short shank. You will see Rory Calhoun using his black Bohlin rig starting with the second season of his show "The Texan" which ran for 3 seasons on CBS from 1958 to 1960. Calhoun played Bill Longley, an itinerant good guy. The real life Bill Longley was said to have been one of the most brutal and sadistic killer in old west history, he was hanged in Galveston in 1878. Rory Calhoun chose to make his character a hero.A fully lined contoured belt and holster with 24 bullet loops is priced at $375. With border tooling, as shown, $390. For either variation in black, add $15.00. Unlined versions are also available, inquire about pricing. $sample shown
