The “Fort Laramie Roper” is a beautiful reproduction of a holster that was used over a hundred years ago.
The rope border requires over five hundred individual stamps to complete. Along with being stamped by hand; the belt and holster are hand dyed for a rich color to accent this rig.
The “Roper” rig is constructed of high quality vegetable tanned leather and fully lined to protect the finish of your favorite revolver. Molded for a perfect fit, the holster comes with genuine latigo hammer tie downs. The 3″ wide belt comes with 24 bullet loops and a solid brass, nickel plated clipped corner buckle.
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. The heavy weight construction also makes sure the holsters stay open when re-holstering. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit. 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. The belts are made using heavy 9 oz. saddle leather and are fully leather lined. They feature 24 hand molded bullet loops and come equipped with high quality solid steel and brass hardware. Our holsters are built to last a lifetime.
