Custom Hand Crafted Gun & Cartridge Belts
The above images are only a select sample of the many styles of gun belts we can craft.
Any of our gun belts styles can be customized to your specifications.
All gun belts are unlined unless otherwise noted.

We make three styles of gun belts with three types of ends: billetted, tapered, or straight.

**1. Percussion Belt: A single thickness (8-9 oz) or full-lined (2-4 oz lining) leather belt without cartridge loops.  These were originally designed to be used with the Slim Jim holsters when packing a cap and ball revolver. 

**2. Cartridge Belt: A single thickness (8-9 oz)  or full-lined (2-4 oz lining) leather belt with cartridge loops.  Three types of loops are available in this type: A) Sewn loops which average 30 loops.  B) Woven loops which are made by cutting slots in the belt body and then the loops are laced through  each slot - average 30 loops.  C) Semi-woven loops which are also made by cutting slots in the belt body and then weaving the loops through the slots.  The difference is the semi-woven has a space between each loop making the average about 25 loops. Loops can also be mix and match with rows of shotgun, pistol, and/or rifle loops all on the same belt.

**3. Money Belt: This is my choice and is one of the most comfortable cartridge belts ever designed for day in and day out wear. These are made of veg tan calf skin folded lengthwise and usually sewn across the top and down each end with a slot under the buckle.  The same cartridge loop variations available on the Cartridge Belt are available. 

Our Percussion and Cartridge Belts are available: lined with buckskin or calf skin, with border or basket stamping, or can be had full carved.  All types are available with: nickel, brass, or silver spots, nickel or silver conchos, and various style buckles in nickel, brass, or silver (the nickel plated California clip corner style is standard), and range in width from 2" - 5".
Cartridge and Money belts are available with combination cartridge loops: Shotgun, revolver, and or rifle in any combination and with revolver cartridges in a double row configuration.
There is no extra charge for large sizes.
There is an extra charge for cartridge loops:

  • an additional $2.00 each for over forty pistol/rifle cartridges
  • an additional $2.00 each for over twenty five shot gun shells.
