A few months ago I posted about a Commando I’d recently acquired. It was somewhat unique, because no forum members had seen a Commando with “USA” stamped near the trigger guard. Also, no one could determine what company was represented by “R & H8”. The Colt archive letter reflects the weapon was sent to Robinson and Houchin Optical Company, which apparently made optical sites for bombers. No clue about the ”USA” stamp. Anyone ever heard of R & H Optical?

Thanks. Still looking for the correct ammo pouch for the Commando/Victory. But, at $200+ for the last two I’ve seen on eBay, it’s been further down my list of recent militaria purchases.

Maybe the optical company was a supplier to Norden for their bombsights which were considered top secret or to Sperry or Martin for their bomber turret gunsights?

Is the holster period or repro? That leather looks to be in great shape.
