Imperial models                                              

Prototype stock This   type   of   holster-stock   was   probably   used   in   the   first   acceptance   tests.   The   solution   was   not retained and these stocks are today very rare collectible items. S tandard Imperial Holster. The   standard   LP08   holster.   It   was   officially   adopted   on   May,   5th   1914.   The   holster   is   attached   to   a stock (see 1915 Mars holster). Eugen Huber - 1915 AWM/1/15 Holster. This   is   considered   a   rare   variation   and   only   a   few   have   been   encountered   up   to   know.   This   specific sample is associated to a magazine pouch from Eugen Huber too and marked AWM/1/15. Mars - 1915 Pebble Grain soft holster. Another   rare   variation   produced   by   the   “Mars”   Fabrik   fur   Militar-Effekten.   Mars   was   listed   from   1910 to   1920   as   a   manufacturer   and   reseller   of   "novelties",   military   accessories   and   accouterments   for reservists   at   two   different   addresses   in   Berlin.   In   this   photo   it   is   possible   to   appreciate   the   complete set with stock.

Turkish Model

The Turkish holster for Artillery Luger are among the rarest holster variation. Very   high   quality   of   the   workmanship   and   soft   leather   for   this   nice   sample   of   WWI   holster.   The holster is stamped with a Tunghra. Black Turkish Holster. Another sample of great Turkish workmanship. The   28th,   June   1919   the   Treaty   of   Versailles   is   signed   and   ratified   on   January   10,   1920.   It   forbade the production of 9mm pistols with shoulder stock and/or barrels greater than 4 inches (101 mm). The   Artillery   Luger   is   formally   forbidden   and   for   this   reason   most   of   the   holster   were   reduced   to   fit with the standard P08. The   rare   Artillery   Luger   made   by   Mauser   under   French   control   are   often   associated   to   high   quality holsters. Here three samples are proposed. Note   that   the   first   holster   has   a   metal   web   belt   hanger   to   be   used   with   the   USA   belt   model   1936   and 1943 in use in the French Forces. More information on the P08 and LP08 production under French control can be found here: The Parabellum is back! 1945 - 2000 .
