Has anyone tried tha MASC brand belt holster for Single actions? Information says they are made in Turkey, and are “treated with safe chemicals”. I don’t know if that statement can include vegetable tanning or not. I’m looking for a belt holster for my single action, so I thought I’d check with the most informed on single actions and their accessory items.
Thanks
Jim

There are so many good holster makers to be found in the 'Leather Forum' over at www.cascity.com that it isn't funny.

Figure out exactly what sort of rig you need - traditional Old West or 'B-Movie Cowboy' - then go shopping.

'Old West Reproductions' and 'El Paso Saddlery' are but two - and if you're looking at something resembling a rig from the Frontier Era, remember that they weren't all-matching nor wet-fitted - they were bought at hardware stores and through mail order houses, and were mostly a shade of brown - black dye covered a myriad of sins, including poor quality leather, and what 'color' they got was from the exposure to the elements, and what 'fitting' happened during river crossings and rain storms - their length was for the 5.5" and 7.5" revolvers, as the shorter 4.75" is but .5" shorter, so it wasn't an issue.

My go-to holster maker has been Mike "Doc" Barranti. I have several from him and have been thoroughly saisfied. Not only is he a skilled leather worker, but knows his guns, too.

From Barranti:

Thanks guys. Just say that wet formed holster ad, and liked it’s look. It will be for trousers belt use. I’ve used a Bianchi small SA #1 to comfortably carry my .22 Peacemaker around on my belt for over 30 years in the field. Don’t like those being made in Mexico now, so am looking for a replacement for 4 3/4 .45 single action. Will be looking at holstermakers like Barranti and Reddog who made my western rigs. Any suggestions from personal experiaces about other alternatives?
Thanks,
Jim
