Here is a "new" holster I bought from Russ, it is only marked with an 8 on the rear, there appears to be a marking on the inside, but it is so faint I can't tell if it is a Imperial clothing depot marking. Overall it is in good shape, stitching is tight and leather is nice.

There is one Bender's Luger holsters and accessories that is very close, but this one is pretty much a match for a "normal" luger holster.

Tool pouch is a bit rough, but not as rough as it looks in the pictures.

I would like opinions on if anyone else has one like this one, or seen one?

Ed, They got those on sale at Wal-mart. Two for $3.98.I saw Russ with a cart full the other day:D

Kind of a neat holster. Was it made that way or is it a conversion?
What ever it is they must have made at least 8 of them.:) I would think it's probably a commercial. A Hell of alot more practical than the military design.

Ron, You will notice there are no stitching holes where an Army type buckle and strap would have been placed. I believe this holster was made this way. Jerry Burney

Jerry, In the close up of the tab and stud there appeared to to be marks that I thought could be stitch holes. I could'nt see it clearly enough to tell. But I can tell by the way the tab is attached that you are correct.

Jerry, was wondering where you were, hadn't heard from you!

Seems like a nice holster, wish you were here to look at it? If I send you something, or come out there, I'll bring a couple of them...

Did the inside looking test and holes appear original, front and back...

Ed, I have been in Yuma and have been extremely busy catching up with my holster repair. I had to take a couple of weeks off to move here so it piled up. I still have a week to ten days to go...Not much time to peruse the site on my favorite subject! Jerry Burney

Interesting stud closure type holster. Page 132, Weimar Lugers, is a photograph dated 1922/1923 that shows a police relief guard in Duisburg. The police all have stud closure holsters (Note: these are not cut down modified artillery holsters.).

New manufactured dated police holsters did not start to show up until 1928/1929 (see page 176, top, Weimar Lugers). This suggests that the holsters used by the police prior to 1928/1929 were Imperial Army holsters modified with stud closure. (also, the type of new manufactured holster shown on the bottom of page 174 of Weimar Lugers may have been used prior to 1927/1928. However, I have not observed dates on these holsters.)
