Anyone have one of these

How would rate it quality wise ?


US M2 Holster for M1917 Revolvers


Code: 103720000
In 1942 the Army re-issued old stocks of M1917 .45 ACP revolvers, but a new holster was adopted.
Price: US$ 36.00


US M1909 Holster for .45 Caliber Revolver
Retail Price: US$ 48.00


Code: 103719000

I don't have that one, but I've got a USMC holster for .38's from WPG, and it's quite nice.  You could also check with El Paso Saddlery.  Great quality, but quite a bit higher, and you'll probably have to wait a while for it.

Keep in mind leather tends to deteriorate over time.  If you're going to use it, it would probably be best to buy a new one.

.....on a like note, a buddy and I both got the Ropes holsters from WPG. Good holster, well made, does what we intended them to do. Don't think you could go wrong with that .45 holster.

Thanks,
 I do have the British issue Sam Brown holster for my 1911 from What Price Glory and it is good...

The Original I was watching on eBay is over $100 now with an hour to go ....

So I think I'll order the WPG holster

Looks like Man the Line has a 24 Hour sale on this holster today.  Looks black in the attached photo but the text clearly states it's brown.  I've bought things from MTL before and I've never had any complaints.  As a result MTL sends me these short notice sales from time to time.

......any problems receiving items from MTL? Never dealt with them, have heard from MBs that orders from the website can be sketchy. No issues with ordering items off EBAY.  They do show some nice stuff. Although on the website, none of the clothes (US) are available, as well as belts and ammo pouches?

I've gotten a couple things from them with no problem, for what it's worth.

I've ordered 4 items from them, first was no problem, last three never shipped, after a month I asked and got refunds. All were ordered from E-bay. I always wondered why they listed the same article multiple times in their E-bay store for different prices and shipping costs? After that, I un-subscribed from their e-mail notices. They did offer some pretty unique stuff, but if it never arrives????

My 2 cents worth....I have a number of WPG leather products.  All are excellent quality and durability.  I also have a couple of  MTL pieces.  They were cheap, feel cheap and age cheap.  OK for the price but I will only buy from WPG, Carrico leather or Wolf Ears from now on.

........wasn't familiar with Wolf Ears.  The  holster prices are comparable to Carricos. They have some nice belts....

Wolf Ears responded with ...
" Sir, if you look at wolfearsequipment.com you will find my 1881 holster. By shortening that holster for the 1917 revolver it will look almost exactly like the 1909. Your cost will be $98 plus shipping of $15. Total would be $113.00 "
Stan Dolega    wolf ears equipment
.... I was not interested in that concept .

I did not contact David...Doh !  Maybe I should have  :-\
 I have a couple of WPG  leather product I rate good , the photo(s) I posted are from Jerry's page.

I do have a P38 holster from MTL, and it is good . I guess I'll find out  :-\

I have a web belt from him for CAS.  I really like it.  Great quality and enough adjustment to wear with just pants/shirt or over my heaviest winter gear, great coat etc.

That is disappointing to hear re: the 1909 holster.  I need one for my US Army 1909.

I have a couple of David C. holsters and they are really top quality. 

I do believe the MTL has several levels of quality.  My one is a CW holster that I bought to do a "post saddler" modified Cavalry holster.  Another project that I need ot finish. ::)
