Holster Shoulder Rig for Chiappa Alaskan Scout Takedown

Video

Howdy

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

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.
