I thought some of you may enjoy this one.
This is a Biachi M-66 ambidextrous holster which was developed for Viet Nam era military applications of the 1911 and S&W model 39. The top cover snaps off and can be turned around while dual sided belt loops make it a right or left handed holster.
If you Google a search on these you can find positive remarks from a couple of Vets. A not often encounter holster as they never were actually adopted for a military contract.

I remember when Bianchi cataloged these. I recall that not only are they ambidextrous, but that they can be used as either a flap or open holster. During my military service I only saw one such privately purchased holster being used by a lieutenant.

I wore one of those back in the early 70's as a MP in the Army & being left handed it worked great
