The “Big Jake” is a replica of the rig used by John Wayne in many of his films. Like our other holsters, it is hand made from beginning to end using only the finest materials available.
Constructed of quality Herman Oak Leather, the holster is full leather lined and molded for a smooth draw and easy re-holstering. This hand dyed holster has all edges burnished then painted for a long lasting finish. The belt is made of 9 oz. leather and double ply suede.
The “Big Jake” comes equipped with twenty-four bullet loops, a solid square buckle and latigo hammer tie down.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. The heavy weight construction also makes sure the holsters stay open when re-holstering. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. The belts are made using heavy 9 oz. saddle leather and are fully leather lined. They feature 24 hand molded bullet loops and come equipped with high quality solid steel and brass hardware. Our custom gun belts are built to last a lifetime.
