Nevada Smith holster/belt
« on: April 02, 2024, 11:39:40 AM »
I am looking for a good picture of the rig Steve Mcqueen wore towards the end of the movie. I tried googling images but wasn't very successful. Any help would be appreciated or if someone made one.

Attached is a picture I took off of YouTube. I have the movie and I'll see if I can find a better picture.

On another note, I did find a pretty decent picture of the rig McQueen wore in the Magnificent Seven.

Could well be the same rig, belt looks the same design

I read in a magazine or online that Andy Anderson made the rig in Mag7 as well as the belt/holsters in Nevada Smith. Just can't get a clear image. Thanks for the response.

I read they were Anderson Rigs too.
Many of the Actors, ordered and owned they own rigs.
I know JWayne & Eastwood did.

The photo above the holster appears to have a slight forward muzzle rake.

That picture of "The Vin" is just wrong with the S&W in it.  :)

I wondered about that also. I was sure McQueen carried a SAA Colt.

I think I found something close to the NS rig.  The new Mag7 movie had the leather made by Andrews Custom Leather out of St. Augustine, Fl.  The rig they made for Chris Pratt looks pretty close. The strong side holster and belt.  Probably a one-of-a-kind run for the motion picture industry.
