Help With Swivel Holster ID-For Revolver


Recommended Posts

This appears to be a shoulder holster, or maybe for a Sam Browne type set up? The attaching points seem too small for a belt, so I'm not sure what or how it was carried. No markings of any kind. Any ideas are appreciated.

Hello:

 

Your holster is not USGI. It is a commercial holster from the 1920-1940 time frame. It is designed for a revolver. Can't say which one since I can't examine it personally or get much scale from the pics. However, It is probably for a S&W 4 or 5 inch barreled, .38 Special, 6-shot Military & Police model (Model of 1905 Fourth Change) or a Colt Official Police in the same barrel length and caliber. It is right handed and is missing the shoulder strap that would have fit across the chest. I can't tell if the odd loop just above the bullet loops is intended for a belt. Many different companies made holsters similar to this design so without markings it is going to be very tough to ID the maker.

 

Hope that helps you.

 

Regards,

Charlie

I agee with Charlie.Civilian or police use as they had Sam Brown style belts as well that used a over/off the shoulder strap to suspend the holsters.Lot of the old motor cycle cops used this set up as well.
