The British Army used Colt M1911 type pistols extensively in both world wars, but original holsters for these pistols have been difficult to find. This reproduction copies an original in the WPG collection that perfectly fits M1911 type pistols. It is made if top quality leather, and matches the leather used in my British Sam Browne belts. The belt loops are 2 1/2 inches wide. There are also D rings for attaching a shoulder strap.
