Standard U.S. Military-issue shoulder Holster is rated 4.3214 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised Carried one of these on active duty in the 80's, saw the price and figured it must be a factory second. Holster arrived in a very timely manner and I was astonished by the quality. Just like the one Uncle Sam issued me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This holster is a do-It-yourself project and an IQ test rolled into one. By Nedd Ludd in NH on May 4, 2015For the price, this is an excellent, high quality, heavy leather holster.When complete, this holster is simple to put on and easy to wear.This is not a concealed carry holster because of the front chest strap,but it is excellent for hikers, hunters, and anyone spending time in the outdoorswho wants ready access to their pistol.However, this in NOT a holster for the impatient, or lazy.This holster is a do-It-yourself project and an IQ test rolled into one.If you're not into that, do not buy this holster.First, the holster will require extended oiling to soften the leather.Second, it will require assembly, which can be challenging.Before you buy this holster you need to understand that it must be softened upbefore you try using it, or even try putting it together.It took me two and half days, drenching the holster in Lexol Leather Conditioner,before I was satisfied that the leather was soft enough to work with and that the holster would be comfortable to wear.Once you have the holster softened up you can proceed to assembly.The directions, such as they are, consist of a picture of the assembled holster with each part numbered and labeled. That's it - Really.Also, the photo shown here on the model shows the holster put together incorrectly. Again - Really.The cross chest strap shown on the model has the cross chest strap laced to the shoulder strap in front. This is WRONG.This will make the holster very difficult, if not impossible to put on.To see how the holster should look when properly assembled, Google: 'US Army Shoulder Holster' - Images. Study a few of the photos.The included Snaphook (not shown in the SG photo) goes in front and attaches to the D Ring at the top of the holster. (See attached photo #1.)This will allow you to put on and take off the holster very easily by unsnapping the front hook.Finally the best news...After being softened up, this holster fits my older SIG P226 without any problem.My Sig is a full size, double stack pistol, but without a Picatinny rail.I'm guessing if this holster fits my Sig it will also fit many modern automatics without front rails.If your Sig is newer and has a front rail, I believe this holster will fit, but it will be a very tight squeeze. (See Attached photo #2.)The barrel channel of the holster will need to be stretched to accommodate the extra width of the Picatinny rail.One additional caution: If you have an older, collectable pistol, the unlined, rough leather interior of this holster will probably wear the bluing.Good luck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should fit a variety of guns I read all the reviews it was kinda dry but I don't think it is as bad as some portrayed really only one spot of concern where it bends the strap with all the holes right at the d ring but I don't think it will break. Did seem at first glance to be difficult to put together but a quick search I found good pictures on an ar15 forum that made it take about 5 mins to assemble. The product picture above is kinda backwards so dont totally rely on that as reference .Fits Glock 22 and Pt111 down to revolvers so if you have multiple guns it might work of course its made for 1911 and Beretta 92 that should give some reference on compatibility. I recommend getting some leather softener before you put it together all I had was hand cream.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. Arrived as described. Well made and easy to assemble. It needs another 6 -8 inches of adjustment in the straps for a XL size person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best general use holster for heavy auto recently wore this rig for 4 days- one day for 24hrs. easy to get in and out of vehicles. compfy for sitting and not noticeable when walking distance. Can rig 3 ways. (the SG photo is wrong) clip needs to be in front. the Brit way seems best for me with the strap over the head to the other shoulder. the method shown in the packet is best if you expect to be dragged out of a burning tank. in this case- use the leather thongs- otherwise Chicago screws with loc-tite

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Holster I have had one of these holsters for several years and I love it. I carry my 1911A1, Daewoo 40 Cal, Browning Hi Power, High Standard Double 9 22 Cal and Colt SSA 45 LC in it. I wouldn't trade it for a Gold Bar. (Well, maybe I would a Gold Bar) That being said, this is the most comfortable holster I have ever used period. This one was ordered for a friend. I'll let you know how he likes it.
