The one on the left (dated 6/89) is the one I just received from Omaha Surplus (thanks for the link!) - the one on the right (dated 3/63) is the one I received from USRO a couple of years ago.

I received mine Friday. Exactly as described and the holster is dated 6/89. I also ordered a magazine pouch, and thought I would share it too. It is dated 3/87, and is in new unused shape too. Omaha Surplus didn't waste any time getting them shipped out either. I ordered on 7/3 and received them on 7/6.

Just received my 1911 holster from Omaha Surplus. Might have an issue but am not familiar with how the closing stud works.

When I pulled the flap open I expected the flap to slip over the round knob on the stud. Instead, the stud pulled out of the leather and the stud stayed in the flap.

Is this correct or is the stud defective?

Also, I had hoped to use it with my Kimber full sized Gold Match 1911. However, the pistol has an extended tang and the flap is too short. Not really a problem as I purchased the holster for my hopefully future CMP 1911. So, a heads up to others.

Thanks, Rich

Should've oiled the leather first.

So I presume the stud should have stayed in the holster body.

Back to Omaha!

Thanks, Rich

Correct.

The leather on mine, especially the newer one is very stiff - however, you shouldn't have to oil it to unhook it, it should stay in place even so.

Default Replacement holster on the way!

Omahas Surplus responded quickly to the defective stud and a new holster is on the way. Apparently a small number of them shipped have had this issue.

If you have a new in the wrap holster and have yet to try it give the flap a good tug to make sure it does not pull the stud out.

In any event, excellent customer service response!

Default Leather holsters for the 1911

I have a Boyt 44 holster I have had since I was 10 yrs old. Probably Vietnam War era. I’m thinking about getting a shoulder rig like an M3 “tanker” holster or even something more modern like a leg rig (MOLLE) which would be nylon. Not for concealed carry, just the range. I caveat this with being lucky enough to get a M1911 to begin with. Probably better to stay more authentic to the period of the pistol.

We were issued a leather flap hip holster.
Pretty much every one of us bought one of the ballistic nylon holsters to carry the thing in the field.
