EXCELLENT EARLY WAR REGULATION ISSUE CAVALRY HOLSTER FOR THE COLT ARMY

$695.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 286-519

Worn on the right side of the saber belt with the butt of the pistol facing forward, this is the regulation issue holster for the cavalry .44 caliber Colt Army Revolver, the standard sidearm of the Union cavalryman, and the C.S. trooper too, when he could acquire one. This is in excellent condition with about all of its black leather finish in place, showing just overall crazing and a few wrinkles from age and use, and some slight wear to one side of the belt loop and a couple of other small spots as could be expected. The holster even still displays the impressions from the contours of a revolver it must have held for decades. The seam and the toe plug are in place and in good condition. The belt loop is secure, as is the latch tab. The holster also shows the early war construction of attaching the latch tab just a straight row of stitching and no rivet. Ideal for an early war cavalry display.   [sr]
