An Andy Anderson patterned replication of a Western Walk and Draw set starts at approximately $500 from various makers around the country and an actual Andy Anderson Set sells for much more than that amount used.This Spaghetti Western Gun Belt and Holster set is made of Premium Grade Heavyweight Skirting Leather with Fancy Stitching over the entire length of the 2 1/4-inch wide leather Gun Belt. Also the fancy stitched Spaghetti Western Gun Belt comes with a smooth leather lining and 24 ammo loops centered on the back of the Gun Belt. The Spaghetti Western Style Holster(s) are made in a Fast Draw Design with a rearward cant as were the originals with a metal lined insert in between the leather holster sheath and the lining of the Holster, this helps to promote a faster draw and helping to maintain the Holster rigidity.Available for Colts, Colt Clones, Ruger Vaqueros, and Blackhawks.Since these belts are custom made at the time of order please allow 8 to 12 weeks for delivery.FEATURES:PREMIUM GRADE LEATHERS AVAILABLE IN BLACK, BROWN OR RUSSET COLOR SPAGHETTI WESTERN SINGLE LOOP HOLSTER DESIGN LEATHER LINED STEEL REINFORCED HOLSTER FOR ADDED RIGIDITY FANCY STITCHING OVER ENTIRE SPAGHETTI WESTERN GUN BELT STANDARD WAIST SIZES FROM 26 WAIST UP TO 44 WAIST ( LARGER SIZES 46 WAIST UP TO 60 WAIST ADD $35.00) STANDARD AMMO LOOP CALIBERS OFFERED (NO LOOPS, .22 CALIBER, .32 CALIBER, .357 / .38 CALIBER, .41 CALIBER AND .44 / .45 CALIBER)NOTE 1) WHEN ENTERING WAIST SIZE, PLEASE ENTER YOUR ACTUAL PANTS WAIST SIZE AND ALSO YOUR EXACT HIP MEASUREMENT, 2 INCHES BELOW THE BELT (WIDEST PART OF HIP).

The films are titled A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). All 3 Films were distributed by United Artists, the series has become known for establishing the Spaghetti Western genre, and inspiring the creation of many more Spaghetti Western films.The three films are consistently listed among the best rated Western films of all time. Although it was not Leone's intention, the three movies came to be considered a trilogy following the exploits of the same so-called Man with No Name (portrayed by Clint Eastwood, wearing the same clothes and acting with the same mannerisms). The Man with No Name concept was invented by the American distributor United Artists, looking for a strong angle to sell the movies as a trilogy. The Eastwood character does indeed have a name (albeit a nickname) and a different one in each film: #1) Joe #2) Manco and #3) Blondie respectively.Sergio Leone met personally with Andy Anderson prior to the Filming of A Fistful of Dollars and went over all of the gun leather to be used in the movie which Andy would create. The meeting was held at the Andy Anderson Gunfighter Shop in Hollywood, CA. and at the time of the meeting Andy had been working in his shop. When Andy Anderson and Sergio Leone met, Sergio Leone noticed Andy Anderson was wearing a Leather Wrist Brace Andy had Handmade on his wrist and when he asked Andy about the wrist strap Andy explained he had a Shrapnel Injury from World War II which affected his wrist.Sergio Leone liked the look of the Leather Wrist Strap so much that he actually took the wrist strap Andy Anderson was wearing at their meeting and took it to Clint Eastwood to use in the movie. He told Andy Anderson he wanted the one Andy had been wearing because Andy Anderson and Clint Eastwood were of similar build and he wanted the worn look of the used Leather wrist brace.
