Is this the picture?



That visible holster is one of the high-impact plastic/nylon types, isn't it?

That looks odd, almost like a light colored version of the UK holster that came with the Falklands figures by Sgt. Larry.

Might be British 58 Pattern Holster, possible kit swap?

The holster in the first pic looks like it could be a Safariland. There are plenty of these available in 1/6, including ones which look just like the one in the pic. Maybe check out some of the older Hot Toys versions that they made before they abandoned their military line.

Slightly larger pic (if you hit View Image). If it's an ABA or LBT holster, it looks like the P58 holster is it's old dad.

Maybe a stock M12 holster for the fabric one? {Corrected} Not the M12. It does look like that British 58.

The other one does look like an early Safariland to me, but I don't know my holsters from the 90's to well.

I posted those pics..got them from militaryphotos.net. they are said to be pics of DEVGRU Black team snipers in Somalia, 1993. Reading "Modern American Snipers"right now and they talk a bit about DEVGRU's Black team snipers involvement there. Great read so far.
