Original WWI U.S. M1909 Holster for Colt / S&W M1917 Revolver by Graton & Knight - Dated 1917

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is straight out of the attic ! Absolutely original that has not seen the light of day for maybe nearly 100 years. This is a WWI AEF US Army/USMC M1909 Leather Belt Holster for the Colt or S&W M1917 .45LC Revolver. 

The holster is in good condition, though the leather is stiff from age, and does show some cracking on the edges where the leather is folded over. However it is completely, with stitching and rivets intact. Still has the leg and belt ties as well. It has a worn US oval logo on the front of the flap. On the rear of the holster there are additional markings:


G&K is the marking of Graton & Knight Manufacturing Co., Worcester, Massachusetts, who made this holster in 1917. A.G. is the marking from the inspector at that location, usually it was their initials.

This holster is not a left hand design. It was originally designed to be carried on the right side of the waist with the gun in the "Butt Forward" position. Please see: page #216 in Edward Scott Meadows book "US Military Holsters and Pistol Cartridge Boxes"

A nice Condition authentic example of a nearly 100 year old holster for your WWI collection.
