Looked at the Chesty Puller rig/holster by "Simply Rugged" a while back for my Ruger Alaskan.
Nice but I didn't want to pay almost $130 for it
JMO, but Dr Football has the big $.

Again, thank you all for the great info.

I was able to locate a blued standard version today. The cost difference is a little over $100. $925 for the mark III and $1030 for the blue.

Which one of the finishes (standard blued vs. mark III epoxy) lasts or wears better.

Since I live in California, I will never be able to carry the pistol. It will be used for range and perhaps defense use.

Which would you pick????

Doesn't really matter...have both...love both! I will say that the epoxy will wear better than the blue, but, with care, they both will outlast you.

Sorry I'm late to this. The big picture here is that less and less Hi Powers get made and imported every year. My advice is go grab whichever of those two you like best if it's within your means. The Mark III is tougher but the blue is sure prettier.

I grabbed up my supply of HP's off the used market, but it took several years of hunting to get it done that way.

Hmmm - in my experience Simply Rugged has been one of the most competitively priced maker of customer leather holsters and accessories.
The Chesty Puller rig by itself is priced at only $66
True that you would also need one of their holsters to go with it. So say we are talking about the Cuda OWB holster. That is also priced at approx $60 (and so the holster and the shoulder/chest rig both would drive the price up to around $130).
But keep in mind, if you are looking to just purchase a quality custom leather holster alone - such as Milt Sparks - the holster alone runs about that much.

The quality of Simply Rugged is every bit on par and comparable IMO and so, by my estimation, it is a spectacular deal for the $$ in the world of custom leather holsters.

I would not say that 3T, but I save it up for a few things here and there. In Fact, the most recent holster I bought is an $18 Bulldog Copy of the "Sneaky Pete" to carry the LC when I have to wear "Dressier" clothes like tomorrow when I have to help MzGrn teach the Adults Photography Class @ the Library...
