I like that concept, build it top quality went they are young and it's life long heirloom.
 when he moves on to the real deal that Holster will still be top quality with patina.....

That's top notch gift. There's no such thing as too good a quality for your little ones. Like Major 2 said, it'll be an heirloom for him.

Major 2 and Marshall Will hit the nail on the head. This is a wonderful gift.

When I was aound ten years old I had a Hopalong Cassidy two gun rig. As best I can remember the holsters and belt were of a molded plastic construction. The Pistols were made out of Pot metal and used rolls of caps.

I don't remember the holster ar all but I had a metal six shooter that used Greeny Stickum Caps that you stuck on the end of a pot metal cartridge that a brass looking case slid over the end of. Looked like a real bullet. You loaded them just like a saa would load and fired away at those pesky banditos. The revolver was pretty realistic. They also had a levergun that used the same 'ammo'. A neat toy. I wish I still had it.

Wow, I had a Roy Rogers rig. It had buckskin fringe gloves with conchos on em, too.

Baltimore Ed, they also made a Derringer, too. Dyna-Mite, I think they were called.

Hey, are we all about the same age?

Buckle Guns,  Mattel made them ,  They made the "Spitt'n' Image carbine , Fanner Fifty & the Shoot'n' Shell revolvers Ed speaks of...
Greenie Stick'um Caps were their patent as well...
There also a Roll'n' Block (Remington) single shot carbine...
This was the Golden age in toy guns , NICHOLS ,Hubley & Marx were major players too a that time.

In that era , No orange muzzle tips .... Good Lord , a kid could go around well heeled , walk into a corner Mom & Pop store without a second thought or raised eyebrow.

Those guns, command , BIG money to collectors today...Note the $8.00 on the original box set .... about $250 today.

As to Leather quality the best I recall was, my Paladin Rig.  A single rig in good sewn top grain leather, and a Knight chess piece in chrome plated metal.

Buckle Guns. Of course. Thanks for that, Major. What fun, eh? I always wanted one of the Fanner Fiftys.

I fondly remember, I had a Fanner 50, 2 of the Shoot'n' 6's  & 1 each of the Spit'n Image 94 & the Rolling Block Mattel ,
I had the Buckle , and wore it many times to Elementary School  Shocked
My favorite was my Hubbly  45 ( also shot it's version of shooting shell )
I 'm sure it instilled in me my passion for the 1860 Army & Conversions .

That Hubley Colt is way cool. Never had one, darn it.
In my teens I came across plastic kits of guns. I got the whole series. There was a deringer, a miquelet and quite a few others. I came across this kit of the Peacemaker online. Selling for - wait for it - $150. Phew.
