Chris, I am no expert on WW2 Lugers, but can tell you this, in all reality, ANY hoslter is okay! Okay, now let me backstep, any holster is okay because soldiers were issued a gun and from the armory or supply and the holster and the gun would not neccessarily match up. But common sense tells us that a holster within the same time period makes sense, as a holster and a gun would be ordered / issued during the same tim period, i.e. they get 58 1936 Lugers and so they would be issued or order 58 holsters to be made. Find a 1935 (hard to find) 1936 or 1937 and you will be in the ballpark.

That said, most collectors try to match them up via the same year, as I do to, but my above advice is true.

If it were me, finding a P08 holster would be the bottom line.

I have seen holsters of very different dates with lugers. There is no date rule. However, statistics apply, e.g., the large volume of lugers issued in 1939-1942 will usually appear in similarly dated holsters because such large numbers of 1939-1942 holsters were made. How often holsters wore out and were replaced, I do not know, but a lot of holsters of late date appear with earlier dated lugers.

Chris, Finding a 1935 Army style holster is going to take up guite a bit of your time and money. Very few of them were made and so marked. It is one of the dates that is most scarce. I have seen only a handfull of them in all the years I have been looking and have never had the opportunity to buy one. Almost any other date is common by comparison.

1935 Police holsters are not rare at all. Good luck and remember, the pleasure is in the hunt. Jerry Burney
