Picked this up a few weeks ago. A nice older Uberti Mfg. Remington Reproduction. Nice fit & finish but I bought it for the holster. Original Army issue about 1881 or 85 I'm guessing. If someone knows more about this holster, I'm all ears. Missing the end plug but everything else is in great condition. Makers mark on the back is Lanz, Owen & Co., Chicago. The initials H.K. are stamped on the front flap, I think those are the inspectors initials. The L shaped tool was stuck so far down between the front flap and the belt loop, I doubt anyone noticed it was there. This holster has two holes in the flap to accommodate either the Colt .45 Single Action Army Revolver or the Smith & Wesson .45 Schofield Revolver. Thats about all I know about it but I'd like to know more. What is that tool? Who were they Issued to and how long were they Issued? What is it worth?

    Holster is a pre WWI era US Cavalry holster. Worn on the right hip, and is a left hand draw, as the sword would be worn on the left hip, and drawn with the right hand. When wearing this holster on your right hip, the butt of the pistol would be facing out. These were worn through WWI, and usually sell for around $100.00 give or take a few. Nice holster!
