Does anybody know if there is a company that makes these types of holsters new. Just to clarify I'm looking for the military holsters for the 1911 use primarily from WWII to Viet nam that were worn across the chest in a variety of ways, and came in both black and several shades of brown. Thanks.

Also try El Paso Saddlery, they made the belt model during WW2 (still do, and they made the ones Patton wore) I believe they make the tanker shoulder holster.

If a replica is acceptable, and you don't mind the gratuitous "M.C." stuck on at the end of the "U.S.", check out:

That USMC shoulder holster looks like it would be great for hunting or hiking. Walking for miles I'd like to keep the handgun off my hip and away fropm my rifle.

I use my ex-army shoulder holster when riding 4 wheelers in the woods.
It works great.

And scroll down to product number MU202, which is the M7 holster specifically for the M9 pistol, marked “US,” in black leather.
IMA - - International Military Antiques - - has a bunch of other neat stuff, but this items seems to be the specific answer too the question, at a moderate price. The Galco Miami Classic runs about four or five times as much . . .
Best of luck to ALL our serving military personnel.
