Original U.S. WWI M1912 Colt 1911 .45 Holster
Original Item: Only One Available. Before World War One the M1912 holster was designed for the soon to be adopted Colt 1911 .45. It was produced from 1911-1916, although commercial models were also made well after WW1.
The M1912 is identified by its extended hanger and swivel section. The holster was designed for mounted and dismounted troops. A dismounted model was also produced under contract, identified by still having and extended hanger but no swivel section.
The M1912 holster can be seen in some pictures being worn by troops with the swivel section folded over the belt giving the impression of the shorter M1916 holster.
Due to problems with the swivel section the M1916 holster was adopted in that year. This holster was for mounted and dismounted troops. The M1912 holster still saw use throughout WW1.
This excellent example is a commercial production and is stamped P.I.Co on the front flap. Construction quality is excellent and it features a belt hang extension. Genuine period holsters such as this example, even though not marked U.S. were commonly used by officers during the war.
A wonderful, excellent condition, genuine period Model 1912 holster, just perfect for your high grade vintage Colt 1911.
