Possibly your grips may be mismatched. As far as the holster is concerned, There are some products on the market that can soften the leather. The man to ask is Jerry Burney (Lugerholsterrepair). Anything can be restitched. Jerry does excellent work. I'm not sure Jerry woud use Pecard or Lexol, but as an amateur I use the stuff all the time and have had some success with these products. One should always try to save an item that has history and this pistol came in the holster I presume.

yes the 9mm came with the hoslter, the byf 41 wood handle on left side does have a number ending in 41 no papers or anything else it was kept in a box for years i will check on the repair for the hoslter as you indicated

thanks

Dave, I used Pecard at one time, Jerry is not fond of it, too sticky he says. He does like some stuff called Hide Food, found at Rolls Royce dealerships, so I've been told, since I've never leaned on the hood of a RR. :)

Ed,
I've found that if you apply Pecard VERY LIGHTLY and rub it in to the surface til it is almost gone away, it isn't sticky. But, this takes a lot of time. I found that Pecards even softens leather a bit. I am also familiar with Connelly Hide Food. Years ago my wife bought it for my auto seats. It is great, but I don't like it on damaged/worn surface leather. FYI, I never leaned on the hood of an RR either...I drive a VW Passat!! ;)) Jerry does know more than I though!!
