My goodness. The last time I saw this much fine leather was on my Grandfather's Hereford cattle farm
many years ago.
In following up on my much earlier post (#39) Mike Barranti just finished up what I'm considering the ideal field holster, and one that (at least in my own circle of business) is sure to become tomorrow's classic.. I asked Mike to make some specific alterations to the time tested old 120 that Keith was most fond of, and what follows is the end product I had pictured & described in post #39. Pictured with it is its mate, a 41cal Flattop Colt that's also been altered some, as described in a past thread here on this forum as well. The Colt & leather have both been outfitted so to serve all season ranch use and I am ecstatic that things are finally winding up with this project so they can be put to work..
The rawhide laced 120 styles are surely a sight to behold, and no surprise that they're Mike's favorite to do. With the swapped cavalry button instead of a snap for muddy sloppy and frozen conditions, plus the holsters slightly changed cant-angle and position of carry, in my eyes as an outdoorsman & pasture-rider, THIS IS the Ultimate field rig for dependably carrying a sixgun afield. Proud to call it my own.
I don’t know much about SAA leather .
But I do like these rigs I have picked up over the years.

This one is from Classic Old West in el paso. I found it in a bin at a gun show in Gettysburg and had no holster for a SAA. In fact, this is the only SAA holster i have. The colt is a 1956 .38 special with a 5.5 barrel.
