What name are you after? The name of the gun? See if you can post an image of what you are looking for.

It's a bandolier over top of his normal shoulder holster.

Can you show me at Google?? I can't find good one.

Darth, it's a WW2 Turkish Bandolier.....According to my friend. It's like the one seen in the movie Lawrence of Arabia.
I'm looking for one myself. There are some replica bandoliers out there for sale that look close to this but so far I haven't found any for sale that are an exact match.
The shoulder holster for Uncharted 1, 2 and 3 are not common shoulder holsters. None of them exist in real life. The only way you can get an exact match is to have them made for you by someone who's handy with leather work OR you do it yourself.
The best you can do, like I've done, is find real life holsters that are "close enough" to what you see in the games.

It would make perfect sense that ND would copy the bandolier from the LOfA film because Lawrence figures into the plot of the game. IF I'm not mistaken even his dagger can be seen in the teaser trailer lying on the table.
As far as the holsters go.....Yeah, I'd imagine the holsters were modeled after the real Galco holsters....A while back I did a search for a sideways ammo pouch for my shoulder rig and didn't find much online. Most hang straight down.
The thing with buying shoulder holsters is that most are quite expensive unless you find a good used one on Ebay that's cheap. I plan on purchasing a real Beretta 92FS in the not to distant future so whatever I get shoulder holster wise it needs to work for a real gun and not just as a prop. Owning multiple holsters can be costly so I'm willing to forsake screen accuracy for functionality.

I'd go with a Galco Jackass II or a Miami Classic, (the Jackass looks a bit more like the one pictured above.) I'm also pretty sure Galco also sells individual holsters for the Jackass rig separately, so you can pick up a holster for any number of airsoft or blank "prop" guns, and have one to fit the 92 for practical carry.

just bought a glaco vhs118 on ebay for just over $100. not 100%, but it is brown, leather, and has the vertical holster that i was looking for. plus i'll probably be able to recycle it for other projects. i think i may completely bs the bandolier and go with one of those cheap plastic "bullet belts" since i splurged on the holster.

One thought on the bandolier is that one could potentially make a workable copy from a dark brown pleather.
That said, I'm going to wait to see how prominent the bandolier is in the final game before I decide to do anything like that.

I am new in the forum and a great fan of the uncharted series too. Also searched a long time for the leather holsters, bandoliers etc. Also contacted naugthy dog for their interest in producing some officially licenced versions. No response yet - unfortunately. Maybee there is not enough request/demand to make the hole thing financially lucrative.
I have some experience in leatherwork and so I build my own ones. I can encourage everybody to try it - not as difficult as I thought (please take a look at the pictures of the holsters of part 1+2).
Would be great to get some feedback about your oppinions (accuracy etc.)
Will post some pictures of the bandolier soon...

Wow, that holster looks great! I am actually looking to get one made for my 2012 comic con costume.
Oct 5, 2011, 4:44 PM - Re: Uncharted 3 shoulder holster
here a first picture of the unfinished prototype of my uncharted 3 bandolier.
One problem I have not solved yet are the buttons. The in-game buttons have a really complex shape with several ornaments. To mimic their appearance is no problem. However these push buttons have to be quite robust and functional...
Maybe someone has an idea?

Completely agree. I only hope that if they commission someone, that they do not produce crap. If you take e.g. the Rambo knife sheaths you know what I mean...
Concerning the metal parts. I lost a lot of time searching every shop on the internet for fitting parts. You will always find something close, but never 100%. Mostly nickel plated iron - will rust sometime. So I decided to build everything from scratch - closer to the original and rustproof. However: A lot of work!
Following the rules of this forum - as a new member - I can not sell or offer something until the 45 day delay is over. Since I got several positive comments - really unexpectedly - I will potentially think about selling one when this time is over....

Yeah, I totally understand. It'd be nice to be able to get one of these holsters. I can only *HOPE* with the release of the third game and the movie coming sometime in the near future that we see a lot more Uncharted merchandise popping up.
Oh, and keep in mind that Nate has two different holsters in Uncharted 3 plus it looks as if he has a slightly different one in the Uncharted : Golden Abyss game.
Oct 10, 2011, 1:31 AM - Re: Uncharted 3 shoulder holster
my 2 cents... I'd be fine with the diamond shaped snaps being replaced by round ones.
It would make the thing easier to produce I'd think.

You're talking about the Desert Drake holster set, right?
Oct 14, 2011, 4:45 AM - Re: Uncharted 3 shoulder holster
