Cheyenne Holster & Ranger Cartridge belt
« on: June 15, 2018, 10:26:34 am »
The iconic Mexican double loop holster was never done better than the F.A. Meanea Cheyenne holster version.   According to the book packing Iron it was introduced around 1890. 

I used the extremely accurate patterns from Will Ghormley's Old West Collection for this holster as well as the Ranger cartridge belt.  The holster is lined 8 oz.  and the belt is unlined 10 oz. Hermann Oak leather.

Great Rig! Excellent workmanship.
