New Western Rig

I received my new rig from Frontier Gunleather yesterday just 19 days after placing the order. They call it The Hollywood. I had the front cut straight like the Arness Rig. It has 30 cartridge holders on the belt.

Pros
Very nice looking rig.
Fit is good, like most leather it needs some breaking in.
The leather belt and holster are thick and stiff like I like it.
The holster is reinforced in the cylinder area.
It feels very comfortable.
Very fast turn around time.
They sent a customer satisfaction survey card, stamped for return. So they must be listening to their customers comments.

Cons
It was what I consider expensive. But I like the thickness of the leather and don't mind paying for the quality that I want and got.
There were several scratches on it that I didn't put on it. Looks like it will show scratches easily, maybe because of the finish or color.
I asked to be notified when it was shipped since it wasn't being shipped to my address. They didn't notify me and thats my biggest complaint with it.

The cartridge holders didn't come filled with .45 colt ammo.

Pretty nice....

....I am not a holster kind of guy but under the right circumstances, the style of rig you picked is one I could get used to.

Very nice

Very nice looking. Are the belt and holster both lined?

As far as I can tell neither is lined. The inside of the belt is smoother than the outside of it, but looks the same. Maybe double leather, it is thick .250". The holster is rougher on the inside than the outside.

I just read their (things to know) on their websight and it says, all of their belts and holsters are fully leather lined.

That is definitely "Hollywood".
Looks very nice and you wear it very well.

Where's the left one? Do you have it on back order? LOL just joking, us CAS shooters like one on each side.

You have a rig to be proud of sir.

Thanks all for the nice comments.

I would like to get a 1873 rifle and a rabbit ear coach gun one day.
