FINNISH MILITARY LAHTI (L-35), HOLSTER AND STOCK.

Figure 1. Back of Lahti holster showing the loops that the stock rests in. The luger style stock is SA marked and it’s iron fits a Lahti.

Figure 2. Luger style stock attached to Lahti holster. The Finnish made Lahti holster stock is too large to fit in the loops of this holster. This style of Lahti holster with straps to fit a luger style stock is not infrequently encountered. It is suggested that the luger style stock was sometimes used with the Lahti.

Figure 3. Front of Lahti holster showing tool pouch, extra magazine and brass rod. The tool pouch and magazine pouch are made to specifically fit a Lahti tool and magazine.

Jan, Is the Lahti stock attachment the same as the Luger? Really nice example here. Beautiful quality and craftsmanship on all of it.

Reason I ask is the stock shown has the four holes for the closure strap on an Artillery rig plus I don't know anything about the Lahti Pistol.

You also take beautiful photo's..What type of background are you using and do you have any lighting tips?

Thanks, Jerry

Are SA marked Lahti holster stocks hard to come by now? I used to see them often but don't anymore. If someone knows where to look, I'd appreciate any leads. Thanks!

Probably Finland obtained these luger stocks as surplus from Germany after World war I (no documentation). A standard Luger attaching iron may not fit the slightly larger Lahti (than luger)lug. The one shown above does.

9mm
Obtained the stock shown above many years ago. Havent seen one for sale in recent years.
