Ok, so living in a country with tight gun control laws means I don't really do holsters. This is the first one I've done to suit anything that didn't fire Nerf foam bullets, and this is a toy as well! As it was the prototype I just riveted the thing together, the actual holster will be sewn, but it's the first one I've drawn a pattern for so I didn't want to waste the time on stitching if it wasn't going to fit! Wish I had sewn it now as the pattern worked perfectly.

The gun is a toy derringer and will be part of my customers Steampunk costume. For the customers model I'll move the stitching line in a little to account for the rivet size, the actual size with the riveted seam is just about perfect, the gun slips in with a little 'click' when it goes home.

No dye as yet and the holster is still damp.

Critique please Smiley

Very nicely done, sir. All that is left is to dye the piece, bone the edges, and wax.

Looks like I won't be doing the sewn one, the customer loves the rivets Tongue si it's dyed black, edges are boned and it's had the first coat of finish applied...

It's so nice to see evenly spaced rivets. Smiley

Easy as since I just got my new wing dividers today Smiley

I think he's planning on painting it up a little once the holster's done, but either way I'm just glad the holster turned out so well Smiley

You did a very good job with the molding and the rivets. My only suggestion would be to remove a bit more leather around the grip. you should be able to get a full grip on the gun before pulling it from the holster (Learned from experience, I've made over a dozen holsters for people who carry guns every day). Please post pics of the finished product, I'm sure it looks awesome.

Yeah, it was modeled after a full-size pic. I don't think I shrunk that section enough. For a toy, not a big deal, but for a real gun it would be an issue Smiley
