Original German WWII Brown P38 Softshell Breakaway Holster
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice German P-38 holster from WWII, and is a standard soft-shell "break-away" design in brown leather. The holster is complete and fully functional, with the original brown finish still present. This indicates it was most likely used by "Rural" Police in Germany, who had brown leather trim on their Tschako's and other equipment. There were also some military units that still utilized brown leather, while most other stations required black.
There is the expected wear from age and service, but it is still quite attractive. The stitching is mostly intact, and one of the two belt loops has been replaced, with correct heavy white stitching.
Still, it presents very nicely, and would make a lovely addition to any collection. It would be perfect for any WWII Walther P.38 pistol in need of a nice condition original holster.
The Walther Pistole 38 (P.38) pistol was first introduced in 1938 as a replacement for the P.08. The P.38 was a more cost-efficient and more reliable in war conditions such as mud and rain. The P.08 was a typical prewar German gun, over engineered to perfection, with a sensitive toggle breech system that would malfunction when dirt was involved. The P.38 was a workhorse that did just what it was meant to do. It could handle most harsh battlefield conditions and as such the closed hardshell holster was discontinued later in the war and replaced for a partially open softshell holster. During the War close around 900,000 were produced, so the holsters were also produced in large quantities.
