Not an exact replication, but it wasn't meant to be. I went with functionality vs movie screen by adding the retention strap to hold it in securely and a few extra rivets to ensure the thread didn't have too much stress. Took about 2 days total. One day cutting and measuring, another to dye and finish. All leather is hand cut (I couldn't locate any leather straps with matching color) so some straps aren't perfectly straight. Works and wears great and the grip is quite comfortable. I coated the grip and knots with leather glue and then buffed it a little, giving it a hardened but flexible feel. I left a lot of play in the shoulder and ribcage straps to adjust for whatever I would be wearing while using it. It's not a prop to throw on a shelf, it's for actual use outside. It came with plastic grips and a cheap nylon sheath, so I figured I'd do something nice with it.
