    Agree with rsparacino2 that you have a unmarked commercial Luger holster. A WW I military holster can be easily picked up, if you are looking to have a "correct" rig. Love the 2 matching mags. ...

    The 5 digit number you mentioned finding is indicative of a commercial Luger. All military models were 4 digits, usually with a letter suffix. Also the holster was constructed for a barrel of 4...

    Pretty early in the war to have run out of holsters. Might have been a sign of things to come, as far as the availability of raw materials (leather) in Germany

    I think some of these guys seem to be a little old to still be junior officers. Maybe their naval careers are not advancing as expected.

    Outstanding example of a 1908 and that holster is in incredible condition, especially for it's age. Obviously this rig never spent anytime in the field. Best of luck.

    Nice police rig.

    That holster being numbered to the M1914 pistol is rather unusual, because it was originally made to carry a CZ. Probably post war, when the

    No bids on this pistol. Obviously the starting reserved was too high to generate any interest. I have never seen one of these M1934 and it appears to be a very interesting variation.
