Brown tooled belt info
I purchased the RT draw tooled brown tooled holster in 38 caliber and the size 42 The belt was stamped 38 357. And at first i did not see the 42. So I thought i received a 357 cal holster on a size 38 belt. So I thrown the contents of my refrigerator out to shrink down. Because i had bought a 22 caliber duel holster black smooth size 42 for Christmas. i had to wear it on the very first hole to keep it snug. So i started eating to move the buckle to the next hole. Like Goldy locks now both fit just right. Well the tooled 38 size fits great just right. Two bullet loops are overly loose and bullets push out very easy but do NOT fall through during rapid movement.I purchased this one on sale too I gave this a 5 star because 10 was not an option. I am well pleased with purchases. Pardon me please if this item is red i am severely color blind. Good job well done to the artist at the leathery.

Well made
Well made and sized correctly. After strapping it to a log, the same diameter as my hips, to shape it out, inserted guns, squished the holsters down to fit snug, adjusted the hammer strap with a tug and the rig has worked out great.

Viewed your holster on the web and read many great reviews about it. I placed the order and was surprised how fast it arrived at my home. Upon inspection i saw that the reviews i read were right on. What a fine crafted leather belt and holster. The fit was perfect on my body and the revolver. The tooling was well done and the rig looks as good if not better then some others costing twice as much. Glad i made the purchase and will shop with you again.

Better than I thought, right size, holds my SAA securely. Looks great and well worth the price. Most like this sold elsewhere run three times as much and don't seem to offer any greater value.

In that there are no "brick and mortar" outlets in my rural area that allowed me to "touch and feel" the gun belt and holster I needed for my Ruger Vaquero 38/357 revolver (Bisley grip), I did an extensive web search. Prices varied from about $70 to over $300, but only Historic Emporium offered the variety of products and obvious commitment to the entire culture of our American Western history. Customer comments were detailed and very helpful, along with specific recommendations by Historic Emporium Customer Service. The quality of my belt and holster is superb, and size recommendation from Customer service smack on. The steel casing sandwiched between the double layer holster saddle allowed me to hand form the holster to a perfect fit for my Bisley Vaquero (5.5" barrel) in only minutes, with no water soaking needed. The ammo loops are perfectly sized, firmly gripping the 38/357 rounds. The hammer loop was a bit short for the Bisley hammer format, but easily adjustable. The stainless steel revolver with ivory grips presents a stunning and authoritative appearance in this high quality, plain black leather.

Thrilled!
I bought this holster for my two six shooters, Ruger Vaquero Bisleys with 5.5" barrels, and I love it. They are for my first foray into cowboy shooting, and it looks and feels (and smells!) great! I had to make a change to get the right size, my waste is about 32" and the 34" belt fits well. The customer service was fantastic! Note to future buyers- the belt is not straight. If you lay it flat, it is curved, and the size is based on the distance across the top of the curve. But that curve is what lets the belt sit flat around the hips. I will be back for more authentic cowboy clothes and accessories!

Fantastic Dual Holster
I had been searching for sometime for a dual holster with appeal as well as being useful. This holster was absolutely fantastic. The tooling on it was unbelievably terrific. The delivery time for it to be sent to Australia was quicker than expected. So whether your after a dual holster or even a single holster int a tooled version then I highly recommend looking at what is available from Historical Emporium website. I am already looking at a few other items from the website.

A great fit and great for my left hand. My right hand no longer works safely since I had a stroke and I can't cock the hammer on a single action pistol without squeezing the trigger prematurely. Fortunenately I 've been ambidextrous and was able to use a left draw holster. The price was right for such a good quality leather holster.

Very well made gun belt and beautiful tooling job, only had a little issues with sizing but all i did was emailed them and let them know and they sent me a new size when they got the old one back. Wonderful customer service and very easy to exchange 10/10 would definitely buy from them again.

Draw Pardna
This holster set-up is the finest workmanship East of the Pecos. Don't be fooled by those half priced imitations. Those are sewn in the back so they save on leather. This belt is one piece, end to end. Those holsters (and probably the belt also) are only finished on one side. So the exposed face at the gun grip is not the same as the belt. The tooling is exquisite, I didn't see a flaw anywhere. And the two tone staining gives it the old time original look.

Good value western rig
I just received the two-tone leather version. This is my first western rig and I only have experience with modern holsters. But I am satisfied with the price-to-quality value of this rig. It looks great and the materials don't seem cheap. The fit could be better, I see why people spend the extra money for a more custom rig. I bought this for entry-level cowboy shooting and it will be great for that. This holster fits my Ruger 5.5 inch Vaquero fine, and I paired it with a cross draw holster from another company for my 3.75 inch Vaquero. I wear size 36 jeans and the size 40 rig works fine for me. The narrowest points on the best are 2.75 inches, so shop for accessories that fit greater than 2.5 inch belts.

I recently ordered the 38/357 cal western gunbelt in black tooled leather and i am more than pleased. It is very well made for the money, nice thick belt, fits good, holds pistol just fine, bullet straps hold bullets securely, i dont see any flaws in the leather or dye job, overall just a nice belt without paying too much. I am considering getting a couple more 6 shooters and if i do i will be ordering another holster or double holster from historical emporium.

38/357 gun belt & holster
The belt and holster is in my opinion of the highest quality and workmanship. I love it. My New Ruger Black Hawk fits it like a glove. The draw is flawless and it holds the weapon secure. You can't ask any more from a holster, besides,, it looks darn good ! I have one small problem, I ordered it tooooo large on my waist size. I measured wrong and now I. Struggle to keep the rig from falling off my pants to the ground. Its hard to have a shoot out when your gunbelt falls off your pants to the ground as you draw. ! Ii needed a 42 not a 44. That 2" makes a lot of difference. If I need to buy another one I will, but if I can send this one back I would like too. I haven't scared or messed it up in any way.

HR Cartridge Belt
100% cowhide leather well made that works well with both my High-Rider holster & my personal western style holster. Exactly what I wanted to slip my holsters on to. Be sure to know where you want to wear your belt/holster for a better fit. Since I wanted to wear my belt over my waist & not on my hips, I measured at a 45 waist with pants & pants belt on & a 46 at the hips. It was suggested that I order a 48 gun belt, but should have only gotten a 46. The 48 fit but had to be tightened to the very last hole to fit snug enough. Pleased with the belt but not the size I have exchanged for the 46.

Old West Feel
I have always enjoyed an old fashioned single action pistol with a long barrel. But the pistol isn't any fun unless you can draw it out of an old west gun-belt and holster. This gun-belt is authentic looking and the leather seems of good quality. The ammo loops are properly fitted and sized as well. The price is excellent. I'm oiling and breaking in the belt as I write this review. I've worked with lots of leather over the years and this belt is definitely okay. It soaks up the oil appropriately and seems, after only a few days, to be softening as it should. The only negative is that the stitching workmanship is not the best, although adequate for the function of this belt as I shall use it - fast draw shooting.

Nice
1st one I bought and was bigger but will work as a backup. I bought another that fits perfectly. Would recommend to go smaller on your measurements when sizing yourself. My first was a 48 and was big but worked my second was a 42 and fits more perfectly. The quality is outstanding and very well made for long lasting time.

Outstanding product. Revolver fits perfectly. The holster itself is so sturdy that it is easy to draw from even without the tie down. Leather looks great and is well appointed. Color is rich throughout. Shells fit well within the belt loops. Service was ridiculously fast. Belt and holster arrived within a week. Due to my incorrect measuring of belt size, I had to do a return. (I have a 38" waist, the 40" belt fits great) The replacement arrived in seven days.
