    It looks like it once had dual mag pouches, similar to a Bavarian Steyr holster I had. This isn't one of those, but I think that's what was once there looking at the stitching pattern.

    Waffenampt 142, 185, 186 and 195 are all correct for Karl Böcker (EPF). Could be one of those.

    A block High Power with stock slot?

    Hello,

    This one is a first for me- is this real or fantasy? Recycled frame with an unfinished stock slot? I did not buy it, just watched it out of curiousity.

    Thanks.
