That for the reply SuperMan. Don't have a 1917 but a Colt Officers Model Heavy Barrel 6" is a bit snug and the flap does not close over the "knob".

Very unusual construction (the belt loop is folded inside against the flap; rather than attached to the backside separately). The very fine stitching suggests perhaps 1900. Sewing machines were most uncommon even then.

For sizing I expect it's for an SA of some sort, which could be a broad spectrum of things in that era. Take thee to a gunshop that has antique-era pistols.

Thank you Sir. I appreciate your insight. Will check on the SAs. Respectfully, Bill

Keep us informed, interesting rig. That belt loop looks like it would be stable in wearing and possibly crossdraw. Think on horseback!
