T0. WILLIAM S- nnvoLvER HOLSTER.

This invention relates to revolverholsters, and has for its primary object to provide a simple and inexpensive mea-ns automatically operating to lock the revolver in the holster and prevent its accidental loss there from. j

More particularly, my present improvements provide such a guard device for revolver-holsters, which is so constructed and arranged that'the very quickY withdrawal of the revolver from the holster is permitted.

It is a further general object of the invention to provide a device of the above kind, which may be readily ap alied to any ordinary leather revolver holster and the several parts of l.which may bevery inexpensively produced in the form of metal stampings.A

With the above and other objects in view the invention consists in the improved re volver liolstersaiid in the form, construe. tion and ail-rangement of the several .parts as will be hereinafter more fully described,

- illustrated in the accompanying drawings and subsequently incorporated in the sub joined claims.

In the drawing wherein I have illustrated one simple and practical embodiment of the invention and in which similar refer ence characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views-' f Figure 1 is a rear elevation ofthe revolver holster provided with my present improvements, l l

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1, r

Figure 3 is a horizontal section taken on the line 3 3 of Figure 1, and

Figure t is a detail perspective View of the latch element.

Referring in detail to the drawings where-` in I have illustrated a holster of conventional form, the holster bodyV 5l may be formed of heavy leather or other suitable material, cut tot proper shape, and then bent at the rear side thereof. `It is understood of course, that the central or intermediate portion of Ythe, leather holster closes both of these upper and lower sections at their front sides.

When the revolver, indicated at R, is in serted inthe holster, the barrel thereof is 1925. serial No. 7,504.

4the holster. This plate is preferably bent or stamped into substantially U-shape form to provide spaced end portions 9 to extend upon the outer facesof the side walls of the r sections 6 of the holster. These end portions of the plate may be'permanently se-V i cured in any approved manner vto the holster walls, as, for instance, by the rivets 10.

The intermediate portion of the plate 8,

bridging the space between the side walls of the holster section 6 at their rear edges, isv

provided with a verticallyl `extending recess 11 opening upon the upper edge ofV said plate andterrninating in spaced relation to the lower edge thereof, to provide a seat 12 for the trigger guard Gr of the revolver. At one side-of this seat, the edge of the recess 11 is curved upwardly and outwardly, as at13., yto 'one of the end flanges 9. At the opposite side of the seat 12, the intermediate portion of the plate is provided withan outwardly projecting flange 14, the purpose of which will hereinafter become apparent.

Inv the `plate 8 below the seat 12,' a stud 15 is fixed and projects inwardly from said plate. A latch lever 16 is loosely mounted upon the inner end of this stud for pivotal movement 'and a suitable spacing washer is interposed between said lever and the plate 8. Above the stud 15, thelatch lever termi'- nates in a hook 18, positioned in a plane sub-` stantially parallel to the plate 8, the lower edge 19 ofsaid hook being spaced above the-seat 12. The hook 18 is provided with an upper. inclined cam edge 20v. As seen in Figure 1' of. the drawings, in the normal position of the lever 16, the bill of the, hook 18. projects across the recess 11 fr oln thev flange 14 towards, the curved edge 13 of the Plate 8- The letchlever is` 'normally heureuses in such. .position by meas of a suitable leaf spring 21, one4 end of which is riveted to the innerv side of one end portion 9 of the plate. This spring extends downwardly from its fixed end and fit) the free end thereof is curved and has bearing pressure against the curved edge 22 of the lever IG.

The latch levei` 16 is provided at its lower end with an angularly disposed rearwardly projecting finger piece Q3. Movement of the lever under the action of the spring 2l is limited by a suitable stop pin 24 fixed in the plate S. .i

In the use of the device above described, it will be understood that when the revolver is inserted into the holster, the trigger guard Gr projecting from the rear side thereof, readily enters the upper flaring end of the recess 1I, and by contact, either with the cam edge 'I3 or the tiange ill, is directed upon the upper inclined cam edge 2O of the lever 16, thereby rocking this lever upon the pivot stud i5 to the position indicated in dotted lines in Figure l of the drawings, so that the lower side of the trigger guard may engage upon the scat l2. lVhen the guard is so positioned, the spring 2l returns the lever 16 to normal position, thereby enga-ging the hook 18 of said lever over the'lower portion. ofthe trigger guard,

.to securely retain said guard upon the seat 12. Thus, no amount of agitation will result in an upward movement of the revolver in the holster, whereby it might become entirely displaced therefrom and lost. The lower curved edge kI9 of the hook will prevent the upward movement of the guard in the rell, even though the spring 21 may eventually become considerably weakened.

Notwithstanding the provision of such a safety guard for the revolver, the latter may be quickly withdrawn or removed from 'the holster liy siniply engaging one of the iingers. when grasping the revolver with the finger piece Q3 and applying pressure thereto against the action of spring 21.' Upon thus disengaging the hook 1S with the trigger guard, the upward and outward movenient of the revolver from the holster is permitted.

From the it'ta'egoing description considered in connection with the accompanying drawings, the construction manner of operation and several advantages of my present improvements will be clearly and fully underl stood. It will be seen that I have devised a very simple, inexpensive and effective safety guard for revolver holsters and one which may be readily applied to such holsters as are now lin common use. I have herein shown a desired forni of the bridge plate 8 upon which the latch means engaging the trigger guard is mounted, but it will be understood that this bridge plate may be produced in various other forms as may be 'opening upon the upper edge required, by the particular size or shape of the holster. Further, the several detail parts of the guard means may also be susceptible of considerable modification and I therefore reserve the privilege of resorting to all such legitimate changes as may be fairly embodiedv within the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

I claim I. A revolver holster having a lower pochet like section containing the free end of the barrel; an upper half open, oi' winged sei:- tion embracing the main body of the revolver, but leaving the handle free; a. plate bridging the ends of the wings ot the said upper section, and having a recess towards the open end of the holster for receiving the trigger guard and a seat for said trigger guard at lthe bottom of the recess; and spring pressed latch means pivotally mounted upon said bridge plate for engagement. over the trigger guard to retain the saine on the said seat.

2. A revolver holster having an upper section open at its rear side, a plate fixed to the side walls of said holster section and bridging the rear open side thereof, said plate having a vertical recess open at its'up-4 per end to receive the trigger guard of a revolver and provided at its lower end with a seat for said guard, a latch lever pivotally mounted upon the inner side of said bridge plate having an outwardly projecting finger piece at .its lower end and formed with a hook at its upper end, a leaf spring engaging one edge of said lever and actingl to retain the hooked end thereof in engagement over the trigger guard, and a stop tixed in said bridge plate'a'nd limiting the pivotal movement of said lever to the latter position.

A revolver holster having an upper section open at its rear side, a plate bridging the open side of said holster section and provided with a vertically extending recess thereof and having a seat at its lower end for the trigger guard of a revolver, .saidv plate at one side of said recess being provided with an upwardly and outwardly curved cam edge and having an outwardly projectingtlange at the opposite side of the recess disposed in a plane at right angles to the plane of said plate, and manually operable spring pressed latch means upon the inner side of the bridge plate Vto engage the trigger guard and retain the same upon said seat.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention, I have signed my naine hereto.
