Original U.S. WWI M1916 Holster for 1911 .45 Automatic with M-1910 Pistol Belt, & WWI Magazine Pouch

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Set Available. Incredible rig for the WW1 M-1911 .45 Caliber Automatic Pistol. The set includes an excellent example of a M1916 Holster. This is a must have for the collector of U.S. M-1911 Pistols!

The set consists of the following:

- Original WWI issue M1916 Holster: The holster is in great shape, with only light staining, and retains its original russet leather color, having never had oil applied which would darken the leather. The leather is slightly stiff from age with some stitching loss present on the rear. The rear has an extremely faint maker’s stamp and we believe it to be Boyt.

- Original WWI issue M1910 Pistol Belt: The Belt is in fantastic condition, with the webbing not exhibiting any signs of dry rot, tears, or unsightly damage. The brass hardware still retains most of its original blacking.

- Original WWI issue M1911 double magazine web pouch dated 1918: Free of damage and looks to have seen very little use in service. It is marked on the inside “MILLS OCT 1918

This is a beautiful and iconic belt rig set up for Officers and NCOs alike! Comes more than ready to be displayed

With the U.S. entry into World War I, the Model 1910 equipment experiences some distinctive changes. The color of the equipment went from olive drab to drab (khaki) to accommodate commercial manufacturers who had difficulty matching the olive drab dye, but even the drab color soon weathered to an off white. The eagle snaps gave way to lift-the-dot fasteners on both the cartridge belt and the canteen cover, and manufacturing techniques were somewhat simplified. The supply of ammunition carried in the cartridge belt was augmented by the addition of one or more olive drab cloth six-pocket bandolier. Each pocket held two five-round clips of .30 caliber ammunition for the M1903 rifle.
