Just bought this holster on ebay. Can anyone tell me anything about it or the maker.Thought it might go nicely with my newly aquired 1936 S/42. All facts,speculations and opinions eagerly accepted.

Thanks! Ron

I should of said very nice and definetly held a luger as evidence of the toggle knob wear. A late mauser would also compliment the holster nicely.

Lou, Thanks for the info. Unfortunately don't have a late Mauser...Yet! The 1936 is the latest I have. However, this is the correct era for it. And it's as close as I could get so far.Would love to have a 1936 holster in the same condition.

Yes the 1936 luger is a beautifull specimen, have seen and owned several and they all retain a high percentage of blueing, also the manufactures/workers seem to have had the rust blueing process down pretty good prior to switching to the salt blue. A mistake in my opinion but I guess it speeded up production for the war years. Picked up a nice 1937 holster for mine several years later so they do surface from time to time without wading through all the crap and forgeries that we all have to contend with from the online sites. Ebay is giving the ligitamate sellers a bad name by allowing the junk to sell to the uninformed buyer.

I remember a few years ago. The same thing happened at gun shows. The fast talkers kind of took over.And were peddaling junk to newbees. It was getting so bad I quit going for awhile.Just got tired of some guy yankin'my crank, and trying to sell me forged or rebuilt guns. Then the honest dealers got fed up with it and started outting the bad ones.. I noticed that it's changed quite a bit in the last few years. Not that you should'nt still be very weary.
