Blevins buckles

I have just bought an old western saddle that I am reconditioning which I s working out great, my only problem is the blevins buckles. It is missing one and they are rusty, so I am looking at new ones online, but can I replace the old style ones with a new one? I am afraid the holes won't line up, it is a 2" horizontal with the clip part riveted to the saddle, my huusband wants to put a 2 prong buckle on, like his saddle and my aussie saddle. Can anyone help with some tech tips or advice.

Welcome to the forum!

Only the very older Western saddles have buckles anymore so I would stick with the Blevins. As for fit, it really is a job for a saddle repair shop. They have the proper rivets to reattach a new Blevins and can install the one with the proper spacing.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
