Great job! I really like how it's designed to accommodate the rear sight. :)

Really nice work. I like the sanded seam. Very professional.

Beautiful. I need one of those for my regular 8" Pietta Rem New Army, one for my Pedersoli 20gauge howdah pistol, one for my 51 Colt Navy, and 5.5" Pietta Rem New Army. All left handed of course.

Beautiful work. Is the belt loop closed, or did you put in a spring steel plate to use it as a clip on?

Dude - the belt loop is closed

Clean beats fancy every time. Keep up the good work.

I like how you angled the belt loop so the gun and holster will hang at the right angle insted of trying to shift to vertical like the other cross draw holsters I've used. Very, very nice.

Nicely done...simple...functional...eye appealing...the way it should be!

Nice work, the edges are great. I don't have the knack for leather work, good thing they make dye to cover my mistakes.

Thanks again folks!
Madcrate - I sure do enjoy working with leather....the only thing is I had to trim my clawhammer banjo playing fingernails off so I don't get the leather all marked up when I'm wet molding holsters.
The first time I tried to make a folding knife case I ruined several hours of work in an instant when I noticed all the gouges in the wet leather caused by my fingernails. :uhoh:

like you I love leatherworking but have to really be in the mood to do it since it can take awhile to complete.
I dont know if I showed any holsters I've made in this Forum and please forgive me if it seems like I'm highjacking your thread but here is an example of a cowboy rig I made in the not too distant past.
I'ts made for my Bisley-Vaquero (old syle, large frame) 5 1/2" bbl in .45 Colt.
Both holster and gunbelt are Florentine triple-laced...the holster is suede lined and the belt is pigskin lined. Lacing took forever...or so it seemed at the time.
