Do a search for either M3 Holster or the M7 Holster (later version). Plenty of them out there, originals and repros. On originals, be sure to check the snaps, especially the bottom snap (belt strap). Corrosion (verdigris) builds up between the leather and pushes the snap off. Repaired quite a few over the years and this is a common problem.

IMO,the best one I've found is the El Paso Saddlery one. You can get an unmarked one from Midway right now.
