Here we have an all matching 1918 DWM Luger for review. The luger also came with a reichsrevolver conversation holster with no tool inside the flap. Please let me know what you guys think. Thanks for your wisdom

Looks like an honest 1918 DWM Luger that needs a good cleaning inside and out. (I see rust in the bore) Go over the exterior with an oily cloth and clean the bore with a good solvent and brush. It should present itself quite well.

The holster is interesting and unusual. Lugerholsterrepair on this forum can repair the broken strap and anything else that needs attention on the holster.

You have a nice Imperial Luger that's well worth preserving.

Originally a holster for the Reichsrevolver's in use by Germany before the adoption of the 1908 Luger pistols. Converted for issue with the P.08, the pouch on the front for revolver ammunition removed, belt loops relocated, extra magazine pouch added along the leading edge, flap attached with small pouch for a takedown tool and internal lifting strap was added.

Reichsrevolver holster is overall decent, but the flap is a little dry with cracking, and it needs the buckle strap replaced. I would check with Jerry Burney and see what could be done since these holsters are collectible.

Doesn't matter if it is copper or rust, still needs cleaning!
