M3 Tanker Holster
The M3 Tanker Holster features an over-the-back retention strap and original style snap system to keep your firearm secure.

The G.I. Hip Holster is a modern replica of the classic military flap-style leather holster that mirrors the original. Designed for versatility, this holster incorporates hooks for a standard G.I. web belt and slots for a standard duty belt, complete with a leather thigh strap.

As for the M3 Tanker Holster, it is a classic shoulder holster design, using a single strap to secure the pistol over the shoulder and across the body. Designed for the Government 1911, this holster keeps the pistol under the off-hand arm for an easy crossbody draw. In addition, he holster’s adjustable over-the-shoulder strap ensures optimal comfort and fit.

The new G.I. Hip Holster is available for the M1911, Browning HP and the Springfield SA-35, while the M3 Tanker Holster is designed for multiple 1911s, as well as the Browning HP and Springfield SA-35.
