The Texan – Model 1845


A replica of a holster design used commonly in the late 1800’s the “Texan” is a true piece of western history.

The T shaped crosspiece, once called the “Texas jock strap”, has remained a great example of old west holster design. Constructed of premium saddle leather, the “Texan” is hand molded for a perfect fit. The belt is 2 1/4″ , it has twenty-four bullet loops and is fully lined. The holster has a curved open top, allowing for a faster draw, and latigo leg and hammer tie downs. Available in plain, basket weave and handtooled the “Texan” is the perfect addition to anyone’s single action revolver.

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.
