I will see what I can do...

I don't like to see anyone not get what they paid for...
or get a refund if they are not going to get what they paid for...
or not get answers to their inquiries....


it is just bad for morale...and I have been in similar situations several times and it is not fun...

and ...
just to clarify...
did you pay him for just a belt..
or a belt and holster?

Do you now have both belt and holster or do you still need either?

A few times. He was surprised that the belt he sent never arrived (never got a tracking number to confirm if it was lost though) and asked me again my size and then nothing. This was some time ago.


Wow, I'm really sorry. Let me send you a refund ASAP.
Sorry that you didn't get it but yes I've sent two out and I use the USPS and not UPS to save cost but I have not tracking number.
Again, sorry about that
Rob

Money has been sent and I just sent out another holster. Yes, you get a free one. I know you may not need it but feel free to give it to another rebel or donation for auction.
Again so sorry I thought this was a done deal.
Rob

And thanks Lori the support...who need TKs when you have Lori.
Very Happy

OK Bob,
You should have your refunds in you account now. Sorry for the delay but it took a couple of days to transfer the funds.
A new custom belt is going out today as well but I still don't know what happen to the first two. Let me know when you get it.
Thanks
Rob

I am now making screen accurate Rebel Fleet Trooper belts and holsters. Here it is.


Here is the completed belt. I had a very hard time getting the color right. Its harder to stain the leather brown than I thought. I tried many times to get the stain right. In the end I used paint. It gives you a good even finish and is consistent every time. And no the paint does not come off easily. Its water based latex and soaks into the leather.

I am looking into airbrushing the dye on. But at this point I dont even have an airbrush.


It can be ordered with or without the logo tooled in.


Here is the belt with MonCal/Jawaman belt boxes.


And as you can see here, a Master Replicas RFT blaster fits too.

The price on the belts are $48 + $8 shipping. Belt boxes are $20 for the pair installed. PM me for overseas shipping. But generally it costs $30 for shipping with insurance. Or $20 without.

The price on the holster is $55 + 10 shipping. Rebel logo tooled in is an additional $5. These take about 6 weeks for me to complete. Real life and all that getting in the way.

PM or email me at anrev@mac.com

Bret made me a holster for my Snowtrooper (I normally carry a DLT-19/MG-34), and I live it. He does great work!!!

I will be listing Anrev as a resource for holsters at the Tantive Yahoo Group too...

It is always GREAT to have suppliers for items such as the holsters...


Thanks again Anrev!

also...
You may want to offer the holsters and belts unstained and let the purchaser dye them themselves...

Wink

Ok I FINALLY found the right color dye. Its called British Tan and I think its a pretty close match. The flash in this pic washes it out a little. The belts match. So if you want one of mine, all the above info applies.

I always heard that Saddle Tan was the color to use.
British Tan has a lot of red in it & is fairly dark.

Saddle Tan is what I used to use, when I could get Fiebings dye, but now I can no longer get it in California because Tandy has gone Eco-friendly here. Now I use the water based Eco-Flo in Range Tan.

Ditto...

I used saddle tan...
and found that about 6 months after I finished my belt and holster that the Saddle Tan was discontinued...

luckily....I had bought an extra bottle when I did my first belt and holster

....because I made a second belt...
the first belt I made small because I thought it had to go through the belt loops and sit at my waist...
the second belt I made was longer so that it could hang down like a "gun belt"...
