Product Description
 
Reproduction of the "soft shell" holster for the German Walther P38 9mm pistols. Black leather, hand sewn, with two loops on the back to allow it to be worn on belts up to 1.75 inches wide. The pattern for these was made from an original holster, and they are maker marked with Waffenamt stamp.

Note: These are dated "40". Yes, I know this pattern of holster wasn't made until 1943- but these are pretty nice despite the date not being 100% historically correct. There is no good way to change the "0" into a "3" or a "4" so, if this inhibits your happy time warp experience....

How do they compare to the other repros?
1. The leather is very comparable to the originals, nicely finished and does NOT stink.
2. The stud is the correct gray painted steel type- not the hyper-farb brass, nickel or black chrome nipples used on most repros.
3. Hand sewn, not machine. Yes, it's easy to tell.

Break-in: My P38 went in fairly easily, but a bit of use will help loosen them up. They are not hellaciously tight.

Pistol not included.

What all fits in these here holsters? The never ending chain of questions on all holsters- what can one cram inside other than the pistol these were specifically designed for (namely the Walter P38 pistol- see photo.)

P08 Luger pistol (just barely)
Snicker's Bar
Craftsman 3/16 screw driver
Half a dozen ball point pens

How about other guns? Not so far.
M1911's, HiPowers, Radoms, Glocks, Sigs, etc do NOT fit. This is made for a pistol with a slender barrel and the slides on most other automatics are too thick.
