Just bought this on-line. Not received yet. What is it for? 1911, M9 Beretta, or something else?

 

Thanks, Scott

Right handed US Air Force holster for the M1911A1.

I talked to the guy I bought it from yesterday. He was a member of the Air Force Security Police. He told me his unit went straight from .38 revolvers to M9 Beretta's and this was his issued holster with it. Guess I have to get a Beretta 92 to try it out. Lol.

So, is it for both the 1911 and the M9? I have been told both now.

It was designed by Bianchi (but also made by Cathey) for the Beretta M9 for USAF security and law enforcement use specifically.  The Air Force abandoned the M1911A1 in 1962 and this holster was not used/issued by the Army.

I was mistaken, got the USAF right but yes as states it appears to be for the M9.
