I have a Galazan gun case, their standard leather case that retails now for around $650 I think. Bought it about 10 years ago.

The little strap that wraps around the wrist of the gun to hold the action and stock in place has come loose. It was never stitched, only glued.

And suggestions for the best type of glue/some other way? to re-attach the strap?

I've seen them secured with a screw or rivet, head covered with thin leather.


I learn something every day, and a lot of times it's that what I learned the day before was wrong

I am interested in learning the best repair too, james. I have a Perazzi case that suffers from the same ailment. It was originally secured with a brass rivet, but it pulled off several years ago. I still have the strap, but to install a rivet now would mean it would have to penetrate the leather cover on the underside of the case, I think. I could send it to Kevin M., but would rather repair it myself if possible.

Stan, we are in agreement.....we are both trying not to put a screw through the case. LOL

I'm not sure of the right terminology, but the strap in my case that secures the wrist of the gun is held in place by another strap that was glued at both ends with just enough slack to slide the other strap through, so it would be held in place.

There typically doesn't need to be a lot of stress applied. I probably reefed on it too hard back when I was young and dumb.

Just remembered that Kevin is most likely at the Vintage Cup this weekend. He may check in after he gets back home. I think I may take some pics of mine and email him for advice. He's refurbished a couple LOM cases for me, so maybe he won't think I'm trying to freeload. blush I just hate to ship it all the way there and back for such a small repair job.

I'll betcha there are others here that might know the best repair method, too.

Best, SRH

For what its worth: I had a similar situation with a case I was relining for a Grant hgun. Here I had a little free space under the gun's wrist and, not wanting to 'bolt' through the leather wall and not having a thick wooden carcass to screw into, I solved the problem by gluing a baize covered wooden block to the case base and you can then stitch/screw/glue the hand strap to that. If there is no space UNDER the wrist, you could glue a block to either side of it and likewise attach the strap to those.
Hope this helps.

What I have done is make a small cut in the lining under where the wrist strap will be placed and insert a small piece of sheet metal, about 22 gauge and the size of a tunie (silver dollar) the metal was pre drilled and a brass screw put through it. Then the lining is glued down. I have used a glue gun and 3M 77 Super adhesive The glue gun works best. The strap is then screwed on. I then have lined the strap with sheeps wool cut from an old coat to cover the nut
