    Nice! I don't have one in my collection and have been watching for one at a reasonable price.

    It certainly appears to worth the wait. As with the case above, I too have not added one as they seem to be just over the top in regards to price vs condition.

    A very nice example you managed there, congrats.

    Chinese Contract Holster

    That is a very nice Chinese Contract Holster.   There were two production versions of this holster, the tan one is dated 1944 and the green one 1945.

    Ed, I should probably know this but I don't. What is Chinese Contract? Can you explain this to me as it is something I am not familiar with.

    Cliff,
    I am terribly hurt that you are not one of the 26 people who bought my book "Ingllis Diamond". The complete stoy of Canada's sale of Inglis Hi-Powers is fully described therein. Can I suggest you ask your local library to get a copy? Then I will have sold 27. party2
