    Sam, I will have to closely inspect all Karl Bocker holsters that come through the leather shop from now on.

    Now that all the dust has settled, I'd like to ask a question. I based my mis-spelling answer on the information in the book, "The mauser Parabellum 1930-1946" by Hallock & van de Kant. On page 667, it lists Karl Bocker 3 times with an address of Waldbrohl. On page 673, it shows a 1940 Karl Bocker Holster with an address of Waldbrul..
    Can someone clear this up for me? Maybe the old saying is correct, "You can't believe everything you read in books".

    I can't speak to that, but here is another KB 1940 from another forum spelled the same way.

    Jerry, the only thing I noticed was the back belt straps don't line up like 2 railroad tracks? I have had over 60 Luger holsters. Otherwise it is a mighty fine looking holster.

    I noticed the belt straps are not on the same line but at a different angle. Not like any of the many Luger holsters I have owned.

    I am sure I am in the minority but I do not like this holster. Would like to see a picture of the inside strap area. Bill
