Trying to find all the metal rigging pieces and buckles to make a new Han Solo holster rig! I can take care of the leather work, but I need help finding the other pieces!

the hardware is the most expensive part of the rig, IMO. I won't lie to you, I have some vague plans to do the front and back buckles, in the future, for custom belt rigs but I really have no plans to work on the other pieces.

I know I have patterns somewhere for all the hardware pieces and could get them priced out. Based on the cost of the Luke ESB/ROTJ buckles I am working on, I would guess a set of hardware for a Han rig would be at least $150-$200 or more based on everything needed, I just don't know if enough people would be willing to shell out that kind of cash. I'm estimating in my head the Luke buckle being in the $25 range if/when I sell them. You have 2 buckles on the Han rig including the cold welding of the loops and hardware on the back of the buckle with the option of 2 different set ups, plus the 2 holster pieces, plus the 2 connections for the front buckle which need to not only be cut but also need to be bent in a press brake, plus the droid caller holder..........wow......it might even be higher to be honest......

If there was enough interest we could start planning and requesting quotes, but the interest list would have to be a long list, like 25 people or more long.....

All my opinion mind you

Dave

Here is what I did for my Hoth Han rig, as I made the belt myself. The buckles I made from old street signs picked up from salvage for $5.00, for the fron clip on the belt, I had my old LEO belt collecting dust, so I removed the closure clips and and used JB Weld to attach to the buckle and basically attached the clip to the leather belt as it was from the duty belt. For the belt loop sections on the back buckle, I took a wire coat hanger (heavy duty) and made them with pliers and JB Weld holds them in place. I've never had anything shift, and works well.
For the holster sling, I took chicago screws (post screws) and used JB Weld to hold them in place also. I have a total of $55.00 invested in my holster rig. ( I already had the V-8 model for parts). Not everyone has a duty belt sitting around, and they can be pretty expensive, but it is an option.
