Original German WWII Walther P38 Black Pebble Grain Softshell Holster
Original Item: Recently found in a warehouse overseas, these are excellent condition WWII production black pebble grain finished leather holsters for the standard issue Walther P-38 pistol in 9mm. These holsters are all nicely marked cxe 4 , indicating manufacture by Britzer Eisenwerk Paul Szubinski, Britz Kreis Angermünde, most likely in 1944. They each are also marked P38 on the back. These holsters appear to be mostly unused, possibly unissued, and were stock leftover at the end of the war. They are a bit stiff, having never been conditioned or put into use, but all are fully intact and ready for use. As they are pebble grain leather, they will generally require more conditioning before use than standard grain leather.
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.
