What Leather Holster For A Colt Model 1909 Revolver?

Recommended Posts

I know about the canvass Mills holster but what leather holster dated prior to WW-1 was used for the Colt Model 1909 Colt Revolver?


I laid-away a correct 1911-made US Army marked example in about 70% condition today and was just wondering.


I'm figuring it's just a regular pre-WW-1 dated M1909 holster. Just wanted to check and make sure....Thanks.

I think you're okay....all the ones I've seen were were made by Rock Island Arsenal, and with a date of 1911 you're golden on that.


Thanks. The only pre-WW-1 dated one I could find was a US M1909 holster with the USMC embossing.

Yep, the proper holster for the Model of 1909 Colt revolver was the Model of 1909 holster as manufactured by Rock Island Arsenal. They are very scarce. I don't have access to my pics right now or I would post one of the example in my collection. The Navy and Marine Corps had their own holsters for their versions of the Model of 1909.
