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.

The M1911A1 was standard issue thru 1986 in the active forces...

AND...

We were still carryin' 'em in the reserve forces into the '90s...

SO...

Any USGI holster (incl the M12) is beaucoup apropos!!!

I bought one of their leather slings for my SC 1903A3. Nice product for the money.

Don't own way of their repro tanker holsters but their snap off elite is a very nice, well made holster that is worth every penny imo.

Just sayin...

For actual use, and not looks, the Bianchi m12 is a good holster.

Found this original Enger Kress M3 in a bin of random surplus stuff at an antique gun store in Vermont. The store owner says he buys estates. It's in amazing shape! I picked up it, 2 original M1 carbine pouches, a Hunter leather holster for my SAA, and a leather sling for my son's 10/22, all for $35. It was a good day! Right place at the right time!

Not to hijack the thread, but the title is about 1911 holsters. I've had for some time one of the experimental synthetic tanker holsters from the post-war era. It was an attempt to fight the rot and mildew encountered with the leather holsters. I've never seen another one like it, and can't locate the original source material. Perhaps Meadows? I no longer have the books. It might go well with my upcoming CMP acquisition. Any information and value guestimation would be appreciated.

Along similar lines... this is repro (obviously), but at $35 (on sale right now), not a bad deal at all I don't think. Probably made in India.
