Hellhound Leather



Log in to see fewer ads
Giving a shout out to Hellhound Leather. Got my first Henry lever action, and did not love the way the lever felt on the back of my finger when working the action. Found Hellhound Leather on the old google and ordered their leather lever wrap. Went with the black version, and could not be happier. After watching the installation video, it fit perfect and went on pretty easy. I used the baseball stitch and it looks great.

Gavin (I assume the owner) sent me a very a nice e-mail after I made my order and has been very responsive to several follow on e-mails.

Great product, great company to deal with!

Nice!

I'd like one of those but worry about rust forming underneath the wrap. I managed to put some pits on the cylinder of my first single six by leaving it in a leather holster too long.

They have a great video on how to install them, was pretty easy once I got the hang of it. Very happy with how it looks and feels.

Nice addtition!!

I wrapped a Marlin .357 mag lever that I used to shoot cowboys and indians back a number of years ago and something in the leather caused serious rust under the wrap. Just a thought and a little FYI.

Thanks for the heads up, I will keep an eye out. At least if it does rust, Henry levers are pretty cheap.

Maybe coat the inside surface of the leather with a good amount of gun oil first. I had the same concern. Too much work removing & replacing the leather to check on it on a regular basis.

You are correct, way to much work to take it off to check. But, in the future if I do take it off I like your idea of using some oil before putting it back on.

A square 10, great point. The best option would be to reach out to Hellhound for a recommendation. Their customer service was Tip Notch and I am sure they would be happy to make a recommendation that would work.
