I HAVE PICKED UP A P-38 RIG. MADE IN 1944 AC WITH THE HARD SHELL HOLSTER IN BROWN? I BOUGHT IT OFF THE VET THAT BROUGHT IT BACK AND HE SAID THAT HE GOT IT FROM A LUFTWAFFE SERGEANT.. ANY WAY THE HOLSTER WAS MADE IN 1944 , HAS A EAGLE WaA77, CIRCLE WITH 44 AMD THE MAKERS CODE. HDK. IS THIS A RARE HOLSTER? BEING IN BROWN COLOR? AND POLISH MADE?

Hi Bob,
Send pics please!
Is that holster only Polish made or for a Polish pistol like the VIS (Radom )?
There are two polish plants with the WaA 77 acceptance known today:
lyo, Kromolowski Radom
ndk, Arba GmbH Petrikau ( 1944 ).
A brown holster made in 1944 seem somewhat strange.

Bob, Why do you believe the holster was Polish made?

hdk code is Zerver, Eugen, Werkzeugfabrik. Remscheid-Reinshagen

Brown would be unusual for a P-38 holster as late as 1944 but not unheard of.

The WaA77 and the 44 in a circle sounds very much like a ndk Polish made P.38 holster. They were virtually all medium brown in color. The other Polish maker of P.38 holsters was lyo. The lyos were the same color as the ndk holsters. The ndk and lyo holsters were made of a much lower quality leather than the leather used for German made holsters and are usually found in rather poor condition.
