Pattern 83 Holster?

Postby Troopie » Thu Sep 07, 2017 5:56 pm

I've been told previously that the SADF never issued a handgun to common troops, which is identical to the doctrine of many modern military forces. That being said, this certainly looks like a proper SADF holster, potentially something commissioned rather than issued, but the way it's manufactured seems in line with how other SADF web gear appears.

Would this have been a universal holster or something specifically for the Vektor Z88, assuming it isn't someone's custom creation?

Unfortunately this is not mine, simply images pulled from an ebay auction that ended a year ago.

I've seen these been worn by military police with their camo uniforms. MP's are the only part of SANDF to carry pistols.

that looks like a drop leg holster? Definitely not SADF doctrine.

I have some cool holster from SAP and SADF MP's that I'll post here soon
