“US” marked holster
« on: November 23, 2020, 11:00:55 PM »
I acquired this “reproduction” holster with one of the revolvers I recently found. Can anyone tell me what (if anything) it would be correct to carry in it? It’s a perfect fit for my Dragoon but too small for a Walker and too big for anything else that I own, including an 1858 Remington. If it’s strictly a fantasy piece I may just list it on eBay. Thoughts anyone?

Kim, judging from the molding on the backside of the holster, it looks like it's made for a gun with an ejector rod. My opinion is, it's made for a 7 1/2" Colt SAA.

Hi Jim. I figured a SAA or similar had been kept in the holster but I don't own one. (Yet. ;-) As far a genuine military use, is this a good reproduction, and if so, for what era (ACW, Indian wars, Spanish-American war, etc.)?

I'm no holster expert Kim, but I'd say that it looks like pretty nice quality and it's probably Indian Wars era.
