    Created an ammo belt a month or so ago and decided to make a matching holster. The two sets of ammo loops for 20 total are of a separate construction and mounted with Conchos and Chicago Screws. I may add another Thunderbird Concho to cover the billet stitching.

    Originally the holster was to be for an 1873 SAA but the trigger guard wasn't matching up very well and fortunately my Open Top slipped right in. No stains or dyes, just Dr. Jackson's Oil which consists of sunflower, linseed, coconut, grape, and a few other oils plus vitamin E.
    A little neutral Kiwi shoe wax to finish it off.
