We have been manufacturing the “Westerner” fast draw model for 30 years and are proud to say that it has become the choice of many six-gun shooter around the world.
The “Westerner” is made from top grain 8 to 9 ounce cowhide and is contoured to fit low on the hip for a speedy draw. The holster contains a full welt and is double nylon stitched for durability. It comes fully suede lined and also has genuine latigo leather tie downs. This rig is available for Colts, Ruger single actions and most other replicas. It can also be made for most double action revolvers.
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.
