Original WWI-Era Spanish M1913 Campo-Giro 9mm Pistol First Model Softshell Brown Leather Holster
Original Item: Only One Available. This is very rare and very hard to find, being the early FIRST model Holster for the 9mm largo pistol, designed in 1912 and introduced as the Model of 1913. The pistol was designed by a Spanish Grandee and Officer named:
COLONEL DON VENANCIO LOPEZ DE CEBALLOS Y AGUIRRE,
COUNT OF CAMPO-GIRO
A real mouthful who got the Pistol adopted by the Spanish Army in 1913, and was in use up until 1919 when the new ASTRA Pistol, a clear descendant of the CAMPO-GIRO, was introduced. The Colonel himself was killed in a horse riding accident in 1916. The Campo-Giro pistol however went on to see extensive service in the Spanish Civil War of the 1930's and even into the Second World War. The holster design changed to a thicker skin version which was very much stronger than this very early pattern.
Used but in a nice condition, leather creased in places but not torn, complete with the wide 9mm largo spare magazine on the closing flap cover, which was often removed. The holster also still retains the body sling "D" ring mounts to rear as well as loop for sliding onto a waist belt, with an intact cleaning rod pouch. Very Rare, ready to display.
