variations in Yugoslavia m57 holsters in pictures.

#1 Post by Charles Lipscomb » Tue Oct 09, 2018 3:50 pm

As my first post in Russian pistols I offer a photo essay on five types of Yugoslavia m57 m70a pistol holsters along with a few word of my own on the topic.
I know of a sixth and have pictures of it but I saved them at a different time. Long before the thought of doing this ever crossed my mind.
I will do a word description next to a similar holster. Hope to add the sixth at a later date.
These are not in official order of issue. I sorted them how I thought they were issued .
All comments are welcome.
And to the pictures.

Edit: due to difficulty in uploads i will post each holster one at a time.

Very impressive collection. Ive never seen the last one variation with shoulder belt like this. It was much better production. I need to find one.
During years of my collecting Ive collected some variations too.

The white one is for the MP and the black one we used to call "pancake". The last two are for the Beretta M34 and FN M10/22 Yugoslav production too. The green one and black are Slovenian products. The oldest M57 holster is with the cleaning rod attached in the front side similar to the Soviet T33 holster.

Very nice collection. I snagged the pictures from the net. An ebat seller I have bought stuff from in the past . namely tokarev pistol parts.
From time to time he offers m57 holsters. He currently has most of these u for sale now. Or similar copies..

This is a new one on me. Listed as variation 2a on ebay. The only difference is the back with rings and the snap hook.
