drbuster, I thought so too but looked sort of Mickey Mouse, like it was done by an apprentice. Didn't have the best photo's though, so I couldn't see it all that well. Would likt to see it close up and in more detail. Jerry Burney
drbuster, I would like to get my hands on this one for a close up look. It appears to be a rudementary holster. Not molded well at all, neither the top or the body. I suspect because this was made from another holster altogether. I can't tell from the photo's if it is a Reichrevolver conversion. I don't believe so because the top flap has been sewn on seperately. Also no holes appear to be on the front. I took a second look and can see some holes near the lifting strap.It would be fascinating to me to take a good look at the method of repair on the top and body, where the holster has been extended. Hard to tell exactly without a hands on inspection. Interesting though....Jerry Burney
George, I better start being careful what I wish for....Holsters like this intrique me . It is certainly an early attempt at holster conversion and holds some fascinating period leatherwork. Thanks for thinking of me. Jerry Burney
Well, this interesting "conversion" luger holster went today on e-bay for a staggering $344.35! I was way overbid by "blucreek", whomever he (or she) is. I was surprised that George was apparently trampled also in the bidding. What is also upsetting is that Jerry may not get a chance to examine this specimen, unless of course "blucreek" is really one of us and will "share", perhaps with some closeup photos. One can only hope.
George, Sounds exciting...Let me know and I can call you if you like. I suspected this holster might go pretty high because of it's early origins. These interestings specimens are rare and desirable to the right party.They are not in my bugetary range however. I am afraid the details I want to see cannot satisfy my curiosity with photo's. You are right, one can only hope! Jerry Burney
