    Colt 1911 USMC BOYT 45 Holster

    Dear Collectors,
    I would be glad to have Your impressions about this Colt 1911 USMC Boyt 45 model M7 shoulder holster.
    Is it original ? Is it really rare ? What is it current value ?
    Thank You in advance.

    An original Boyt M7 and it looks very nice. You don't see them around much any more, more M3s or black M7s. Not that they're rare, just not many left on the market. Boyt made lots of leather goods. As for the value...hang on a minute...
    Regards, Jim

    The condition and the green waxy substance on the metal are consistant with the M8 I have that is known to be legit. Take care with the fasteners as they can be a bit fragle. Perhaps a bit of wax type lube can prevent damage fastening/unfastening. Value? I have seen some on e-bay which is probably about the best way to determine real world value (careful of repros). Very nice piece in need of a 1911.

    For a revolver no less. Those aren't as common as some others.

    I like the layout for your stuff, it still gets ahead of you though. After a bit it's sort of deeper than wide and you can't see the bottom any more. Some very good looking gear there. Yes, there are several of us here that will admit to walking around the house wearing equipment like the M7...and .45.
    Regards, Jim
