Original German WWII Walther P38 Black Pebble Grain Softshell Holster by Moll Lederwarenfabrik

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Recently purchased at an estate sale, this is a very nice condition WWII production black pebble grain finished leather holster for the standard issue Walther P-38 pistol in 9mm. It is nicely marked CXB, indicating manufacture by Moll Lederwarenfabrik (Leather wares factory) in Goch, Rheinland, Germany. This was a known maker of holsters and other leather items during the war. Under this marking is a number 4, which could mean 1944 manufacturer, due to rushed production.

The holster is correctly marked P38 on the upper right rear, and appears to have seen only light use. There is some wear to the belt loops, and this was definitely a holster that held a pistol for some time, as indicated by the markings on the leather. The holster is a bit stiff, but otherwise is in great shape, with almost all of the original black finish still present.

This would make a perfect addition to any wartime Walther P-38 pistol.

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.
