Navajo Style Gun Rig

Fabulous heavy leather double buscadero gun rig with Navajo stamp work, including thunderbirds, arrows, snakes, whirling logs and lizards. This is one of only two ever made, custom ordered from "The Pony Express" Sport Shop in Encino, California. It was purchased by Cayuse, directly from the shop owner's family. It was put together by (and maker-marked) Lee Ferris who was a Bohlin employee, but who also apparently freelanced. The rig has sterling silver stamped and repousse Navajo silver conchos set with turquoise, as well as butterfly spacers, affixed to the leather. It is marked: "Pony Express Sport Shop Encino, Calif, 36/41 (hip size) - 38 - 5 1/2 CSA". The latter part indicates that the holsters fit two .38 Colt Single Actions with 5 1/2" barrels. It is missing one piece of turquoise, otherwise it's in excellent condition. The Pony Express Sport Shop was purportedly a favorite stop for John Wayne and other Hollywood notables and their friends.
