: : Hey guys,

: : It may take a little digging but I seem to remembe around the forum pages 5,6, or 7 a lot of discussion about the pistols and holsters. I think the holster was a brown, British Army Officer's model which could be obtained from a couple of military collectibles sources. I wish I could remember what page exactly that info was on but it's there. -MP
Holster: The Raiders holster seems to be a civil production or a
custom-made holster while the ToD and LC holsters were both British
Army holsters. Basically all holsters are of the same design (flap
holster) and of the same color (chocolate brown, a very dark brown).
I'm not sure where to get the Raiders holster from, maybe you are
lucky enough to find one or you can also have one made at a Saddlery.
The best thing is to bring a picture of it with you, then they
shouldn't have any problems. The Webley holster (for Webley MKVI) is
pretty easy (well, more or less) to get. You can contact a military
surplus store or look out for military auctions (The Military
Collectors Exchange: www.tmcx.com). You can buy both, a copy or an
original WWII holster. I recently bought one from a military auction
in London. Really nice but in a very bad condition. Good luck.
