That particular hat and hat band is supplied to the NPS by Stetson.

It's pretty easy to replicate - needing only two 1/2"plated rings for hardware, sewn onto something decorative - then both sewn to the previously tooled and edged band and the adjustment strap added to the affair, but it's a royal pain to adjust properly.

Take a look at the 'Service Hats' made by Stetson, and you should be able to see an example.

Scouts Out!

Had a lot of fun. Great getting to see Drydock and Pony Express again. Got to meet Fingers McGee.

Thanks to Delmonico for getting the sweatband in my hat so that I could wear it this weekend!

Long trip home though. Got home about 1:30 this morning.

Ubertis do not have a slide lock and do NOT slam fire.  Pedersolis have a slide lock and do NOT slam fire.  Slam fire has nothing to do with the slide lock.  Colt, USFA, AWA, and Taurus will slam fire if the internal parts are adjusted properly.

So we have now returned to the beginning.  Does Mexican loop refer to the belt loop on a one piece holster?  Does Mexican loop refer to the loops that hold the bucket to the skirt?  Does Mexican loop refer to the loops holding the bucket to the skirt and the holster covers the part of the trigger guard?

I always believed it was the final one some thing along the lines of the cover picture on Packing Iron.

Take a look at  Sun Body Hats ( They have hat bands under a separate heading, and you might find what you want/need ... then you can make it for yourself or order from them ...

It was worth the effort, the thing weighs I'd guess a 1000 pounds, not sure on the engine, appears to be a mostly stock 1600 dual port (71 or so) with a centrifugal advance distributor (didn't check the #, but looked like a 031 to me).   Stock carb and a header, guessing 75 HP.   Shifter is crap, told him to steal the Hurst out of the one of mine down there parked.   Got a racing harness, I didn't bother because I did some light shake down it it and had no plans on trouble.  May next time borrow a helmet and strap in tight and giver er a good run, the belt keep my head from hitting the top I thing and if not a helmet would be better than a palm leaf.

This may be off topic, if so I apologize in advance.  I am looking to make a hat band with a cinch similar to the one found on a National Park Service Ranger hat.  I have been told the wrapping is for show and the actual hooking system is a post inside the hat band.  Would anyone have some idea, plan/patterns or maybe pictures of the system?  I have googled till my eyes are bleeding and found nothing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Grin

I really question (and highly doubt) whether that RT Frazier holster was made prior to 1899.

Frazier worked for Gallop then was partners for a few years and didn't start his own saddlery until right at the turn of the century.

That said I have a customer using a holster of mine based on that particular holster in Packing Iron and shoots NCOWS with it. It's not (in my opinion with no offense intended) something I think would work in the Originals category or for anyone serious about a particular 1800's persona.
