Ben Wade holster and cartridge belt hand-made by the last best west

This adventure drama has all the elements that make a great western movie.

Powerful acting, chilling bad guys, a morality play in virtually every scene. Ben Wade’s pistol has a cross in the butt, and is referred to as the,”The right hand of God.”

Well here’s his beautifully hand carved holster and gun belt, patterned after the original.  We take great care in hand-tooling our Ben Wade Holster and it shows.

Wade is first seen watching as his loyal gang execute a coordinated attack on an armored stagecoach which is carrying a delivery of cash.  The railroad owner enlists McElroy, Doc Potter and Tucker to deliver Wade to a prison train where he will be taken to Yuma Territorial prison.  Once there he will eventually be hanged.

At the movie’s end, Russell Crowe gives the best demonstration of a single-action hammer-cock-and-fire we have ever seen. It would be interesting to know how many takes it took to get this very impressive scene right.

All our hand made leather holsters are made in America, and our Leather Master has been working with leather, hide and fur since 1978. For truly authentic, original gun leather you’ve come to the right place!

All our sizes are in INCHES, and all prices are in USD. Our quality leather holsters are made for your semi-auto or revolver. ALL OUR HOLSTERS ARE LINED. Our gunbelt backs are suede so the belt stays where it is buckled.  And all of our holsters have a hammer tie down or strap for security.

Correct Gun Belt Measurement

correct gunbelt measurement

correct gunbelt measurement

Getting the correct gun belt measurement is easy if you follow some simple steps.

  1. Put on a pair of britches/pants you plan to wear with your gun belt
  2. Have handy any belt that currently fits you. You can even use a piece of string.
  3. Put the belt on and buckle it where you will wear your gun belt Slightly down over your hips in most cases. Remember the gun belt will be supporting another 4 pounds per pistol and holster {about 3 lbs for the pistol; 1 lb for the holster} That weight will drag the belt down. You may want to go another notch tighter in your measuring.
  4. Make note of the most comfortable hole in which the buckle goes through.
  5. Lay the belt on a flat surface and measure from the end of the buckle to the most comfortable hole. See picture below.
  6. Distance from the buckle end to the centre hole of your belt will be the measurement you supply us with. This is now your gun-belt size.
  7. Generally this measurement should be about 3 to 4 inches larger than your jean size.
