EACH AND EVERY HOLSTER IS MADE TO ORDER

I specialize in traditionally made leather holsters for classic and vintage pistols.

Each holster is hand made from a custom template for that specific pistol and wet molded for a close fit.


Any prices shown on the site for holsters are for a standard model (i.e. regular weight leather, riveted fittings, single row stitching & front snap retention strap).


As every holster is made to order I can easily accommodate custom requests.

Choose from the range of options below to customize your holster.


LEFT OR RIGHT HAND?

All holsters can be made for either Left or Right handed use.


LEATHER

All holsters are made from hand-dyed high quality veg-tan tooling leathers:

- Regular weight (2.5 mm / 5 to 6 oz.)

- Medium heavy (2.8 mm / 7 to 8 oz.)

- Heavier weight (3.0 mm + / 8 to 9 oz.)

See the Colour Options section on this page for available colours for the leather.

SEAM

All seams are hand saddle-stitched with heavyweight linen thread and have burnished edges.

See the Colour Options section on this page for available stitching colours.

CARRY OPTIONS

OWB – (Outside waist band) - belt carry

Standard belt loop - no cant / angle, sized to fit a 1.5" wide belt. This can be made for larger / smaller belts on request.

Loop is fixed with double cap steel rivets hammered flush with the inner face of the leather (these won't scratch or mark the pistol).

Stitched belt loop - add £6 to £8 GBP to base cost of holster.

Belt loops can be set at an angle / canted for cross draw etc.

Belt loops can be replaced with metal clips (see IWB section below).

IWB (Inside Waist Band) & OWB clips and loops

Leather IWB Loop(s) can be permanently fixed with rivets, stitched or fitted with press studs for easy removal of holster from belt.

Most models can be fitted with a front or rear metal clip for IWB or OWB use - add £12 GBP to base cost of holster.

For IWB carry on small automatics these hybrid pocket designs are recommended to increase the surface area of holster sitting under the belt line:

POCKET

Pocket carry versions can be made for most small and medium frame models.

Can be left plain (not wet molded) to break up pistol outline in the pocket.

Can be made ‘rough side out’ to aid pocket retention and ease of draw.
