Whipped up another rig
« on: February 03, 2017, 07:48:10 PM »
This rig is designed with right hand strong side and crossdraw holsters that are each made to fit either an 1860 Army or an 1851 Navy.   The belt is a 2 1/2 inch money belt with 30 extra long cartridge loops.   The reason this BP rig has cartridge loops is the owner carries an Uberti 1873 Winchester along with his BP revolvers.   
I used a new technique for the antique effect on this one that seems to have worked well.  I think this outfit should go over well at the range in Excellsior Springs Missouri.

A guy could show up with the holsters empty and still make a serious impression.

Beautiful rig Mike, I might have one of those in my future. If you don't mind me asking, what's your turn a round once the customer has commissioned the work?
