I ran through the threads and did not find anything about matching holster dates with the Lugers in them. I now have my first Luger and it came without a holster. I was debating on making a rig. Do I have to get the same date holster as the gun (42 code 1940 i-block), or can I go with a 1941? With p38's we have found that there was no attempt to purposely mate the date on the holster with the guns. But, what about Lugers? Thanks, Dave.
