While perusing a antique store today, I ran across this. Since the price is what I would have paid for the holster alone, I bought it. I have never seen one of these. If you put it over your shoulder, the holster is at waist level, leading me to believe that this is the shoulder portion of a Sam Brown belt. The front side of the rig shows that it is US property made by the Milwaukee Saddlery Co. in 1946.






The holster itself is made by Graton & Knight Co.

Its part of the MP rig.


As you said, its a standard 1911 holster mounted on a belt loop along with a shoulder strap that runs diagonally across the body like a Sam Browne cross strap thumbsup.gif
