    Jango Holster buckle thingy?????

    Not sure what it is actually called? But question is what are you guys using to make it. and do you have any templates or measurements?

    I am speaking of the the chrome piece pictured.

    I used sintra. Cruzer uses PVC pipe I believe. cut it so it has a flat back. I'm sure Cruzer could provide a measurement.

    I would also be very interested in a pattern for the size of this. I plan on making mine out of a strip of aluminium, but need help on the scale of the thing.
    Much thanks in advance

    I call it a "d-ring holder"...since it holds the d-rings on the Jango holster rig...and have made more than I'd like to remember (50-give or take a few).

    I searched high and low for a handle, thingy, anything made of aluminum, fiberglass, resin, etc. that had the accurate shape (1/2 round top, flat bottom) and the closest I came was an aluminum handle to a pair of garden cutting shears from Target. But it still wasn't accurate enough because it was about a 2/3 round top.

    So, I make my own out of 1" pvc class 200 pipe and 1/16" styrene sheet. Glue the two pieces together, trim, sand, primer, sand, R&B, and glue it to a piece of leather to be screen accurate.

    Here are a few pics that might help you in your build. I think the accurate width is somewhere between 2.25"-2.5", but I usually make mine about 2.75" to accomodate taller heights than Temura's.

    Hope this helps,

    No problem.
    If it turns out to be too much trouble and $$ gathering everything up for just one holder, let me know and I can probably hook you up with the pieces for cost plus shipping.

    Thanks Cruzer! I actually had all the material lying around the shop! I will post up some pics later. I just finished the girth belt so I take pics and post all together!
