George Peppard's western movie twin shoulder holster

After re-watching tombstone with Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday, where he had that shoulder holster rig, I was reminded of the double shoulder holster rig that George Peppard wore in the 1967 movie "A Rough Night In Jericho" (co-starring Dean Martin as the bad guy).

Does anyone here know exactly what that rig Peppard wore was called and who made it? Was that what is known as a double huckleberry rig?

No idea about the one in the movie. This one was custom made by a member here.

n I saw a movie about the James Gang;s fatefilled Bank robbery and before the went to MN. James was walking around the house in a Double Sholder Rig. It looked cool!
I have a nice Texas single rig for my Vaquero and it rides naturally up in the armpit! Mine isa vertical-draw so it's not the fastest style of rig. Front-Breaks are the quickest!
This last time out my buddies shot more than I did and I just kept score and spotted. Some days I like to watch as much as shoot.
At my Club we're not allowed to carry holstered guns.

I have a spring loaded shoulder holster for a Colt 32-20 that belonged to my great grandfather. Missing the cross strap tho.
