I just bought a Stoeger Uplander sxs shotgun (12 ga) and I'm trying to find a leather butt cuff to help with reloads. Something like this I had in mind. (except for 12 gauge loads of course)
This picture is just to give everyone an idea of what I'm looking for. I'm having trouble finding one online, so I ask if anyone knows where I could get one. All help appreciated.

Welcome to THR Carl!
I don't know where you can get one but wonder if you really want/need it? I tried one once and found that not only did it screw up the balance of the shotgun and my mount from low gun, but it took longer getting the shells out of the loops than just reaching into my pocket. I found a small open fanny pack over my right hip (right handed shooter) was the fastest in the field when not wearing a coat. Then you can grab two shells at once easily.

Hmm, why not the exact one in the picture...for 12 gauge of course. It looks like a Galco and they make that cuff for shotguns.

It is a Galco, and on the site right here it does have 12-gauge listed as one of the carrier types.
But they're not really clear on which type listed in the options is the 12-gauge.

Welcome Carl, I'm an amature leatherworker and made one, mostly out of boredom, for my 870. It's nothing fancy like the one shown, but it's on an 870 express so :rolleyes: I'd say for just this project it's not cost effective to buy the tools and leather. But if you've thought about leatherworking as a hobby..this is not a hard a difficult project at all and I'd be happy to give you a list of the materials you'll need and instructions on making a template.
