M1916 45 Cal M1911 Holster w/Hip Cord

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks: I recently picked this M1916 45 Cla M1911 holster up marked "Warren Leather Goods Co." but without a date. Based upon the info on this site...WWII period. The leather etc. are in great shape...but as stated...no date. Comments?

Being 1944 Warrens dated, it should be a 1945. Late WWI production.

BTW "hip cord" is quite "crude", call it "leg thong"

It’s WW2 production.

 

It has a steel belt hook, whereas all WW1 holsters had belt hooks made of brass.

Thanks....that’s what I thought ....appreciate your help. I was impressed with the condition since many are well worn or “blackened” due to the US Army regulation requirement changing color to black in 1950s
