Original German WWII P38 Police Eagle B Hardshell Holster by Albert Fischer

Regular price $595.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Just purchased from a private collector, this is an extreme P.38 rarity! This is wartime produced A. Fischer, C.2  Berlin made tan leather front dyed Black Hardshell Police Eagle B marked holster for the P.38 Pistol. Very few Police P.38 holsters exist, most are soft shell and these hardshell holster very rarely ever turn up. Albert Fischer was one of two major suppliers of leather equipment to the Police. This is a very rare holster and a significant find.

The back of the holster is marked P38 on the upper right hand corner. Between the belt loops it reads:
A. FISCHER
BERLIN NO. 2
194?

There is the remains of a German Waffenamt marking which was mostly obscured with an intentional scuff mark.

The holster is complete and fully functional, with the original black finish still present. There is the expected wear from age and service, but it is still quite attractive. All stitching and rivets are intact, and the interior strap to lift the pistol when the holster is opened is still intact as well. A great period authentic example of this style 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.

A perfect addition to any WW2 Walther P.38 pistol in need of an excellent condition original holster.
