What do you mean by "ranger" belt? Are you talking about the 2 1/4" wide belt with the 1" or so billit with matching buckle? El Paso Saddlery makes their "River" belt and the Tom Threeperson's holster for the 1911. Many of a Texas Ranger has worn such a rig. They also have another holster, I believe they call it the Austin, that was/is a Ranger pick.

Click on "Modern" for the 1930 Austin and 1920 Threeperson holsters. They don't show their River Belt at their web site. EP Saddlery makes quality leather gear.
