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.

Video

 

Beaver News #52 – May 8, 2017

People have asked us “how do I move the leg ties on my Mare’s Leg Holster”? So we thought we make a short video about it since there is a little trick to it.

Don’t own a Mare’s Leg Holster yet?
Order yours here, you can choose between six different styles.

When you receive your hand-made, high-quality Mare’s Leg Holster from us, the leg ties are on the middle setting of the 5-holes, but you might need it higher or lower.

So how do you move them up or down?

This is what Mark explains in this short video. First Mark shows you how to figure out in what hole your leg ties should be and then how to move them there.

What you will need:

  • pliers
  • a basic paper clip
  • and a little bit of patience
  •  
    Watch the video below and let Mark show you how to do it:
