    Default Holster for Review - US or European?

    I picked this holster up as part of an auction lot and would like opinions as to what it may have been for. It looks military since it has a number on the back. Does anyone know if this is US or European holster? Black leather. Could it be a German Nagant? Russian possibly or maybe a US Colt? Thanks for any information -

    Maybe a Brit holster for for example a Webley revolver?

    Looks like a Colt M1850/M1860 holster but probably not original (doesn't look 150 odd years old)-could be for film/TV or re enactor use-the pistol it fits has a very long barrel that isn't like more 'modern' late 19th century onwards revolvers.

    Hi,
    It looks like a British Enfield revolver holster as they seem to have the same type of shape but i may be wrong, interesting to find out.

    It does kind of look like an old colt holster but the barrel end is flat and not rounded.

    The long barrelled Colt/Remington type revolvers were widely used around the world in the mid/late19th century-They were a common police weapon here in colonial Australia and Canada for example-US Govt holsters are usually prominently embossed as such, so not US issue I would think. They numbers on the back of the holster look like they were added post manufacture so are probably a rack number or even a service/badge number for police use as black leather is more commonly associated with them than military use at the time.
