These barrel protectors are designed to cradle your barrel for protection against the rough conditions that some club gun racks can bring. These work well with the wide mouth racks. If your club utilizes the narrow mouth racks, consider our Soft Barrel Protector.
The traditional brown protector is made from two 7oz pieces of premium Hermann Oak veg-tanned leather. The two pieces are glued and stitched together with strong magnets sandwiched in between. The edges are burnished and waxed, then it receives a Fiebing's Neatsfoot Oil finish and is sealed with Ray Holes' Saddle Butter.
The sleek black protector is made from two 7oz pieces of premium California Latigo leather. The two pieces are glued and stitched together with strong magnets sandwiched in between. The edges are dyed, waxed, and burnished, then it is sealed with Ray Holes' Saddle Butter.
My most recent purchase of a brown barrel protector arrived however the color was very light, closer to light orange than dark brown. However I contacted Heritage about my order 1459 and agreed a replacement would be provided. To me that is fine customer service.
I purchased both barrel protectors to see which one I’m going to use. It is a really tough decision. Both of these are 100% top quality!! I shoot several competitions a year and have never seen a such a well made barrel protector! All I can say is why spend thousands of dollars for a fine shotgun and not protect it from the racks. Best investment ever!!
Adam went above and beyond to make it exactly how I wanted. Great workmanship and fast service.
