Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value This holster is very well made and was as new. Plan to get a couple more for mid sized auto pistols.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! This holster is dated 1992 and is in great shape. There were a few minor scuff marks that I touched up with shoe polish and it looks great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was ok with buying what I thought would be a "good" condition used holster for this price. However I was disappointed. Not near as good as pictured. Most disappointing is that the stitching has come loose in several places and is frayed. Holster is fair to poor in reality. Also noticed that the price just bumped up slightly. The good ones must have gone to other reviewers. Usually happy with SG but not this time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive, But Limited Use This holster is very well made. The swivel part is impressive and ingenious. It fit my S&W 44 Mag 4" bbl really well. Doesn't cover the trigger, but the thumbreak keeps the hammer from moving. Can't shoot a revolver w/o moving the hammer, so that doesn't worry me. Trouble is, I'm left handed and these only came in right hand. I tried putting a 1911 in it and the thumbstrap wouldn't fasten unless the gun is carried "cocked & locked" with the strap under the hammer. Not a bad plan, except fastening the thumbstrap knocks the safety off. Yanking out a 1911 "cocked & locked" with the safety off could result in a real surprise all around. Not a good holster for a 1911. This holster is built like a tank, shows very little wear, and the finish is beautiful. There are 2 snaps that make the holster rigid (non-swiveling)--unsnapped lets the holster swing away so you can sit in a car w/o jabbing your innards. I'll bet the French cops are real tickled with these things. I wish I was right handed. I could carry my S&W model 629 and feel warm and fuzzy all over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived in excellent condition! Stamped 1995, the holster I received was in better condition than I expected. No reconditioning was required. It is very heavy duty and my old Smith Model 915 fit it like a glove. Thanks again SG for a great value and an unbeatable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to beat for the price, if it fits Condition was as described. Good quality leather in used but good condition. Some blue corrosion on the brass snaps (especially under the two that secure it from swiveling). The stitching at the top of the belt loop as coming off from use/wear, but was cosmetic stitching in that location anyway. Mine is stamped with "Foucault 1990". This holster best fits my Canik TP-9, the length looks almost exactly what was used in its previous French life. The back strap is almost tight, just loose enough to make it easier to close, maybe 1/8 to 1/4 inch of movement if you pull up on the pistol.A SARK2P 9mm also fits, but is more loose at the closure. Length is a good fit. A Springfield XD sub-compact (.40) fits in the holster halfway well, but has extra room at the end of the barrel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional Holster was not in as good of shape as some of the reviews made me hope it but is OK and functional.The brass work- snaps/rivets/swivel- were tarnished, but cleaned up easily enough.The leather is a very high quality, indicative of government spending!It fits my Kimber 1911 perfectly, but more important to me, it also fits my new Keltec PMR 30 .22 mag pistol. At least now I have a holster to carry that new pistol on the range.
