      What a unique design. I can't tell from the pic -what keeps the holster closed?

      Wink

      howdy guys the holster has a latch that locks the holster together , you grip the butt firmly and press thru the trigger [ not on the trigger or opps ] and the holster pops open , not bad for 1930's tech , I have a bunch for sixguns too , zorro

      Is it a real Berns-Martin? Or a copy?
      Looks as if the holster was made for something other than a 1911. Maybe a revolver? (Is there molded-in space for a cylinder?) Maybe an older Star 9mm "long-nose"? (Model B?)
      These were available into the late 1950s, and maybe into the early 1960s. One version was standard-issue to LAPD.
