Vintage Milt Sparks 1911 Duty Holster

Does anyone know about this holster? I emailed Milt Sparks and they said: It isnít an HSR, itís earlier than that. There were several similar style tension welt holsters and this one is close to being a Bakersfield.

That holster you have there was called the model #445. It was made in several iterations from the mid 70's through the mid 90's.

Judging by the way the thumb paddle is incorporated, your holster was probably made in the late 80's early 90"s. The #445 was not a cataloged item.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for your reply. Am I correct in assuming that this model #445 fits a 1911 with a 4 inch barrel? The holster length is 7.5 inches.

More than likely it was made for a Commander length pistol. I don't think there were any commercially available 4" 1911's back then.
