Thanks for looking! I just picked this up at a local thriftshop where it was labeled as "ww2 german pistol holster". Can't find a holster with this particular snap botton tho, so figured I ask you guys. Do you have any idea what the make, if it was used for a mauser, and around what time these holsters were made? The holster is void of any prints or stamps, so others have suggested that it may be a non-military holster. What are your thoughts on this? Any info is welcome - many thanks!

I have seen this snap design many times on German Imperial era military equipment.

Looks to be a private purchase holster of the Imperial era.
Based upon the relative snap size, I'd say it might be for a 6.35mm pistol.

I have that same snap design on several of my Imperial German WWI trench knife scabbards.

Neat holster !

From my limited experience I believe this was a common snap of the era. Likely produced by a very large European firm , it's availability was widespread throughout the Continent and consequently was used by most everyone who needed a snap for leather goods.

Whoever is currently making the repro Dutch mag pouches and holsters evidently has access to modern production of these snaps . The repro snaps do appear more "domed" than the originals.
