Pimped up lined Mare’s Leg Holster, HACS Show



Beaver News #68 – March 12, 2018

We here at Beaver Mountain Works are getting ready for the 2-Day HACS Show next weekend – will you come visit us at our booth?

Click here to see a short video from last year’s show. 

But before we pack up our goods and set up our tables at the show we wanted to share this awesome custom hand-made Mare’s Leg Holster with you. 

Our client wanted some signature 3D cartridge loops on the front of the holster as well as a Star Concho and Keeper. In addition, he wanted us to dye the holster two-tone, black and brown. Did it not turn out very classy?

You Dream It – We Make It. 

We sure loved to make this clients dream come true. 

Check out this weeks video of the two-tone, lined Mare’s Leg Holster with signature 3D cartridge loops and Concho/Keeper. 

Custom Gun Belt & Holster on drop-loop



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.

Moving the leg tie on your Mare’s Leg Holster



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:
