Latest Holster 51 Navy Conversion
« on: September 21, 2023, 03:51:19 PM »
Had a guy contact me after he saw something else I did. He wanted this specific stamping with the flower in a left handed holster fully lined for a 1.5" belt loop. He wanted a brownish red color. I went with English Bridle from Fiebings Pro Dye with Fiebings top coat rubbed in. I find that it gives it a nice warm color with some reddish brown. Made for his 1851 Colt Conversion from Cimarron.

Looks good, Rube. That color is very nice. He should be happy with it.

My favorite style of Holster. Your work is top notch. As I've said, it's hard to believe that you've been doing Leather Working for a relatively short time. Many thanks for sharing your work with us.

Thank you. I used Tan-Kote hand rubbed with an old Tee Shirt.
