    Super 38 Shoulder Rigs

    Darryl, et al

    Attached here is another doc I just located revealing the purchase in 1935 of "Clark #10" shoulder rigs for the Super 38. I've sent this on to Kevin Williams. There's another doc not shown here revealing the purchase of 40 more of these the same month. Hope you can read the attached. I'm not familiar with Clark but appears they were based in Los Angeles.

    I picked a couple of early Heiser holsters that would have suited the early FBI's taste.
    One is for a Colt semi auto and the other is marked OP4.
    Does anyone know anything about the OP4 holster?

    Another FBI related question:
    How would the 30's era agents carry their badges, where they issued a leather
    wallet for them?

    Thanks in advance for your comments,
    -Darryl

    The holster marked OP 4 is a model 457 Heiser FBI holster. That is the holster that first appears in a circa 1938 catalog which states " This holster was designed for the F.B.I. of Washington, D.C., who require the holster for fast draw." Although Heiser did not usually mark their holsters like this I've seen several model 457 holsters stamped like this & have an example or 2 in my collection. It signifies that the holster was made for a Colt Official Police 4" revolver. Regards, turnerriver

    FBI Training Video - Fundamentals of Double-Action Revolver Shooting (1961) - YouTube

    I saw this video on another forum. It is an FBI training film from the early 60's showing revolver holster from the era. Looks a lot like the Heisers for revolvers shown above.

    I love that training video! Turnerriver, I have a holster similar to the one posted , but mine has a strap which seems to defeat the fast draw holsters the FBI wanted. Do you happen to know the model # and approximate years it was made. Not in great shape but just curious.
