Just picked up a 1943 tanker holster, NOS, Canadian made, complete with all straps, snaps and buckles. Found one on a collector sight for $395 cdn ......NOT ! Missed one on eBay for $270 us. One in the UK for £235.....PLUS £26 SHIPPING..... No friggin way!
In the end got mine for $230 shipped to the door!
It might be a little pricey but it looks to be perfect and unsoiled as the gentleman had the holster but no pistol. He was hoping to buy a tank to go with the holster but alas it was not to be..... His loss was my gain. Pictures to follow when the postman arrives next week. :thumb:

Cool! I assume it is the rarer Mk. 1 Tanker holster (with the long strap). I have the shorter Mk. 2 holster.

Look forward to pics. :mrgreen:

Yes, it is the long strap version. It will look great with my Albion tanker.

A square10, yes you have the long one. The short one was made by cutting the long strap and making a loop, and doing away with the leg strap.
