Howdy here are several photos of Air Force M13 Aircrewman flap holsters [ and issued with the model 10 2 inches issued in 1960 and the model 56 ] , one is a odd ball in that it not marked USAF , I had believed until now only Milsp [ Milawalee Saddley] and Servise MFG of Yonkers were the only manufactures of these holsters .Milsup holsers are not marked Milsp , but do have the 55D3513 part number on the side and are not of the quality of the Servise MFG holsters .Servise MFG of Yonkers are marked Servise MFG of Yonkers.
This odd has no marking and is again not marked USAF , has anyone else seen a holster like this ??
The holster studs and snaps for the shoulder straps are brass, unlike the standard USAF nickel or chrome.

Could be a "sterile" holster. MACV-SOG and a certain alphabet agency that ran the Ravens and Air America were big into to sterile gear.

Looks like an example of the endless jive they made and sold in little booths all over SVN.
You could find all varieties of belts, holsters, and puches, or have it custom made.
Many outfits were tolerant of this for some reason.
I still got a.45 rig that cost about 5 bucks MPC.
