: Might want to give that picture a quick look over. The M1917 was not a full flap holster, but instead was only a half flap cover for the .45 revolver. Also, I never heard of a butt forward issue after the Civil War as being issued. Interesting. Regards. Michaelson
I think you're right about the M1917. It's possible that the listing was made incorrectly. Is the photo shown here the same as described? The ad even says that the holster was to be worn on the right side. If this holster was worn on the right side, it wouldn't be a "butt-forward", right? I just thought the photo looked like the Raiders holster.
Thanks again Michaelson.
