How to Measure for and Install Your Butt Sleeve (butt wrap)

 

Beaver News #64 – December 4, 2017

You can now order a butt sleeve (butt wrap) from us, even if you are not able to bring your firearm to the shop.

When you order your butt sleeve you’ll provide us with three measurements. This is all we need to produce your butt sleeve and we will ship it to you. Once you receive the butt sleeve you can install it on your favorite firearm yourself.

As Mark says: if you can hunt and shoot a gun, I’m sure you can do it.

We created two videos, the first video explains how you get the three measurements that you need to send along with your order. To watch the video, click on the image below:

 

The second video explains how you install the butt sleeve once you receive it from us:

 

Should you have any troubles to install the sleeve, don’t hesitate to contact us.

How to adjust the Mare’s Leg Shoulder Rig

Video

 

Beaver News #63 – November 20, 2017

In this short video, we explain how to adjust the Mare’s Leg Shoulder Rig. Even if you have not ordered one from us, this video will still give you an insight into how we make our products fully adjustable to your liking.

Find our first video about the Mare’s Leg Shoulder Rig here

Whether you are tall or short, heavy or skinny, left-handed or right-handed, our products adjust to your body and to your liking. Mark shows you where and how you can make your adjustments to position it on your body. 

He also talks about the quick disconnect on the belt connector and why he built it the way he did.

Once you feel you found the perfect fit you need to secure the Chicago screws with some Loctite and then periodically check them to make sure they are not backing off (which is common to happen).

A Rig Inspired by a Movie

Video

 

Beaver News #61 – October 16, 2017

As you know, our Motto is: You dream it – We make it! so when a client came to us, asking for a rig similar like one he saw in a movie – well we accepted the Challenge 🙂 

The movie he was talking about is Two Mules for Sister Sara and he had his eye on the rig that Hogan, aka Clint Eastwood, is wearing. 

It’s a gun belt with a holster and the first thing you’ll notice is that part of it is rough-side out – meaning the rough side of the leather is out and not the smooth side. 

The belt is lined and stitched with a decorative stitch, we added our signature 3D cartridge loops to it and of course, the buckle can be easily exchanged with our chicago screw system. 

The holster is lined as well, molded and fitted to the gun, and the keeper is a buckle-keeper just like the one on the show. 

If you have an idea of something you want to have manufactured, or you’ve seen a photograph or movie of something that you are interested in, come talk to us.

Custom Gun Belt & Holster on drop-loop

Video

 

Beaver News #60 – September 25, 2017

Today we are talking again about a custom item: this is a gun belt with a holster that we just manufactured for one of our customers.

He wanted a 1-3/4″ belt and he wanted to have a drop-loop on it to put on the holster for his revolver. As a prospector, he goes into the woods a lot and he has a license to carry. He wanted something that is versatile and that fits his .357 magnum

Also, because he carries different equipment on his belt he found that if the belt buckle is on the left side, where it normally is on a man’s belt, it has gotten in the way of his equipment. So we manufactured the belt to his desire and put the buckle on the right side. Watch the video to see the other features on this custom rig.

Mare’s Leg Shoulder Rig

Beaver News #56 – July 3, 2017


You dreamed it ….. we made it. You’ve asked for it, and we deliver:

We’ve taken our normal Mare’s Leg Holster and implemented it into a shoulder rig. It comes with

  • a plain ammo plate or an ammo plate of 6 or 12 cartridge loops
  • left- or right-handed which means you can have this as a cross-draw as well.

You can adjust the harness in a way that the holster is all the way up or further down. No matter if you are a tall or a short person, you can customize the fit of your shoulder rig and holster to your liking.

This also takes the weight off the hips and puts it more on the shoulders which equalizes it out if you wear a belt with a knife on it, for example, or you are moving around a lot, you never have the gun sitting down so far.

You can have this Shoulder Rig with any of our Mare’s Leg holsters:

And last but not least, we also added (by demand) that you can switch the hammer tab from the outside to the inside, there are instructions in the video below on how to do that.
