Holster Shoulder Rig for Chiappa Alaskan Scout Takedown



We continue talking about shoulder rigs this week, this customer came to us and said,

"I love your shoulder rig, but I bought one of those Chiappa Scout with the full-length stock and the short barrel. I'd love to have a holster for it when I go out in the bush."

He also didn't just want the standard holster but the lined version and in addition, he has a scope on the rifle that he wanted a cover for so when he is walking in the bush it's not filling up with leaves and dirt.

Quite a special set-up that requires a lot of customization, so check out in this weeks video how Mark built this holster shoulder rig.

How to clean and condition leather goods


Beaver News #17 – August 3, 2015

New Video: “How to take care of leather goods?”

This is a question that we are asked a lot, so we decided to answer it in this weeks Beaver News and also make a video about it.

First of all: You only need to do this every once in a while ! The main purpose is to put oils onto the leather that then impregnate into the leather which will keep it nice and pliable and above all protected.

Here a short summary of what to do and what NOT to do:

Step 1
Before you use any of the products we suggest, make sure you take off all the dust and dirt. Use a small soft brush and some lukewarm water and brush off the dirt and then take a nice soft cotton cloth and wipe it dry.
DO NOT immerse the leather into the water and make it soaking wet.

Step 2
Take the product of your choice (Neatsfoot Oil, 4Way Care, Lexol or Natur Glo) and apply a moderate amount onto a soft cotton cloth and wipe down your rig or leather product.
DO NOT apply directly onto the leather

Step 3
We use some Fiebing’s Aussie Leather Conditioner  that helps protect the leather.

Step 4
When everything is dry (after about 2-3 hours) take a soft brush (or a cotton cloth) and buff it out. The heat friction will help penetrate the conditioner and help create a coating on the outside. It also give you a very nice lush color and makes your leather look really good.
