  1. German: Foreign and German Mfg. 6.35 cal Pistols

  2. German: Foreign Mfg. Pistols and Holsters.
    Attached are photos of a Unique Model 17, Unique Kreigsmodell WaA251 and a Unique Kriegsmodell WaAD20.

    I have had this for years and just saw the marking. It appears to the Mauser Eagle and 63 but as you can see it is not a good stamping. In addition can anyone tell me what the 20 is on the back of the tool?
  5. 1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    Welcome all! Need help determining the authenticity of the Mauser holster. I personally do not have any doubts. Some people are confused by the very good condition of the holster. I will provide any photos.
