1911 Holster

Postby Death Warrant » Thu Mar 13, 2014 12:47 pm

Hi guys, looking for some feedback.

My holster has always been a rather bright orange and has been commented on as such a number of times, see pic below:

So I finally decided to do something about it, applied some dark tan polish to it, so heres the result, slighter lighter in colour than the pick shows, but you get the idea:

Thing is although I like the result and its a better colour than it was, I get the feeling I may have made it look too aged, so I just want some feedback. An acceptable look, or am I back to the drawing board?

Thanks guys Phil :good:

nice job , i had to do the same on my mouser broom handle holster , it gives it a slightly dirty look as well .

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well
