In 1889 the “Fabrique Nationale D’Armes de Guerre” meaning (National Factory of Weapons of war) was established. They were ordered by the Belgain government to manufacture 150,000 Mauser Model 89 Rifles. FN later adopted the current name “Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal” or FN Herstal because they wanted to reflect diversity and stray from “weapons of war”. In 1897 during tough times, FN decided to dive into the bicycle business. This would later become the leading factor to the legendary partnership between John Browning and Fabriuqe Nationale. John Browning played a significant role in FN’s success. It was a good partnership and by 1977 FN acquired Browning. Today FN is seen as one of the world’s leading firearms company.
Most of our belt holsters for the FN models have a slight FBI cant. This helps narrow the profile of the gun and makes it more concealable. Some holsters also feature a reinforced top; so they remain open for easy re-holstering. We have a variety of styles to choose from.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit and contoured to the hip for comfort. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our concealed carry designs secure your firearm; while still providing instant access when needed. Our holsters are built to last a lifetime.
