M66 Ambidextrous Military Holster (1972)
The M66 is Bianchi’s original military holster, designed nearly two decades ago for specialized military applications. The symmetrical design allows its use as a left or right handed holster. The flap unsnaps , swivels out of the way, or removes completely. The holster snaps onto wide belts or slides onto narrow belts and is equally suited to cross draw use. Holster is wet-molded with closed muzzle..
After six years of development work Bianchi introduces its latest contribution to the U.S. Military- the M-66 Holster. Designed for the .45 Government automatic, it is also suitable for the Browning Hi Power and S&W 39 9mm. Among many other features, the new M-66 incorporates an unusual symmetrical design which permits ambidextrous use as well as cross draw from either side. A flip-top action provides fast draw without sacrificing protection of the weapon. A multi-use holster, the M-66 is well adapted to combat or garrison duty. It fits most gun belts including the G.I. web pistol belt. The current issue M-1911 pistol holster has remained essentially unchanged for 60 years. In contrast, the comfort of the M-66 holster and its secure, high position on the hip offer much toward the performance required by today's modern military needs..
