This week Mark is talking about Western Gun Belts. The belt he is showing in the video he made many years back (30-35 years ago!) and this is a very popular rig that gets ordered quite a bit by our customers.

The Ranger Star Rig is a really good gun belt if you are going to be riding and shooting, if you are going to be out on the range carrying a side iron, or if you are doing mounted Cowboy Action.

Riding with a belt that comes off the hip is a lot easier to draw from and shoot than to have a Buscadero Rig. Also, the holsters are form-fitted so the firearm doesn't just come out or bounce around and shift while riding like it is the case with many mass-produced unlined holsters.

The inspiration for the Texas Star Conchos came from one of Mark's favourite actors Chuck Norris in the series Texas Ranger.

But if you don't want star conchos on your rig that is fine too. We can put any kind of concho on the belt and holster, you just let us know what you want.

If you are interested in ordering one for yourself, you can find it in the Online shop here: But first, watch this week's video here or by clicking below. 

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.
