Prospector – Model 1865


The Prospector double holster rig is a direct descendant of the “California” pattern holsters invented during the 1850’s Gold Rush.

Its triple re-curve (cut down on both sides and front) allows the shooter instant access to the trigger and hammer of the revolver. This was a necessity in the lawless and dangerous mining camps of California.

Originally made to fit black powder revolvers, the Prospector is now available for Colt single actions, Ruger Vaqueros and some black powder revolvers.

The Prospector rig is beautiful handtooled in a floral pattern typical of the Old West and has a three piece engrave buckle to match. This is one of Kirkpatrick’s finest Old West Reproductions and truly a piece of Western history.
