    Re: 1903-08 Period/Era Correct Holsters

    Ziggy,thanks for the offer-I sold this holster some time ago.
    Here's a few others-I've been going through some holsters & keep turning up holsters made for the Colt pocket autos.coltauto's excellent examples illustrate how popular this pistol was.
    The 1st photo shows 2 Audley holsters-1 made specifically for the Savage 1907 auto & 1 for the Colt 1903.

    The next photo shows an inexpensive embossed holster probably from the 1930's-'40's,marked "FINK LEATHER SHOPS" on the rear & stamped "246 AUTO".Fink had a government contract for M1916 .45 service auto holsters during WW II.

    The next photo shows a George Lawrence model 16 flap holster stamped "32A" on the rear.There was a pin attached where the three holes are on the flap & the snap shows a swastika.I believe this holster pre-dates any Nazi association;I have a couple of early Lawrence holsters with this style snap.

    [/ QUOTE ]. My understanding is the reversed Nazi symbol was in use by the American Indians long before there were Nazi's. It is called the ROLLING LOG I believe. Prior to WW2 the US even had an infantry division that had the Rolling Log symbol on their uniforms. (Promptly removed and changed prior to our involvement in WW2). Regarding the maker of the holster, I have seen Shipley, Kansas City, saddles with that design tooled into the leather. So Shipley would be another possibility. Regards.

    You guys really fasinate me with your knowledge AND goodies.

    There's just something about the 1903 that revs my engine. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    WOW, all very nice. The Hammerless Holsters are as neat as the Pistols themselves.!
