If you’re a gun collector or lover, chances are that you have at least a few classic Western pieces in your collection. These guns have incredible history behind them and are well-crafted and powerful. Such beautiful pieces require equally beautiful holsters; and at Black Hills Leather, we have a large collection of them in our store so you can find a western rig that fits your requirement easily with us.
1. Remington Model 1875
The Remington is quite popular with collectors because it was carried by several outlaws and law enforcers when it was introduced. While the company didn’t enjoy as much success as Colt and Smith and Wessen during this age, Remington is one of the most coveted classics. This is a small, simple, and functional pistol that requires an equally simple and elegant holster. Highly embellished or detailed western rigs would simply overpower the gun.
2. Spencer Repeater
This was the gun of the Union troops and cavalryman and one of the most well-known and appreciated repeating rifles of the time. This is a very familiar looking gun with an iconic design and a long history behind it. This gun was easily available at the time and thousands were manufactured for the war. They delivered a relatively reliable performance, which contributed to their popularity. Today, it’s not perhaps has coveted as some of the more iconic and interesting guns, but Spencer Repeater does find its place in many collections. It’s a long rifle and requires a secure rig to carry it and you can find one at our store.
3. Smith & Wesson Schofield
This gun was introduced in 1875 and has since attained legendary status and that’s not really surprising. The gun was named after Major George W. Schofield of the 10th Cavalry after he modified the mechanism for easier loading and reloading on horseback. Over the years, this model has been refined and reproduced several times and it’s considered one of the most collectible guns in the market. The silver finish with the white handle will fit in well with black leather because the pale design would stand out and grab attention.
4. Colt 1851 Navy
This Colt pistol is arguably the most popular gun with enthusiasts and collectors. It’s the second most successful handgun manufactured by the company and about 255,000 units were manufactured during its hay day. This was the most commonly found gun in the Civil War and many solders carried and used it regularly. Even after the war, the Navy continued to be one of the most used and purchased gun for many years. It was also converted from to metallic cartridges from the previous cap-and-ball ammunition by the company in the early 1870s. Like the Schofield, the Navy also has a silvery finish with a polished white handle so plain black leather rigs would ensure it shines when you wear it.
