    Default Mauser holster. Wehrmacht?

    Hello all,

    Could you please help me in an identification of the holster? It is made of black leather and has the stamp "fkx 4" on the rear and hardly visible microstamp "GS / ina?" on the flap. I've filled stamps with a white toothpaste to make them more contrast.
    I've been assured that the holster relates to the wartime Wehrmacht equipment.
    Your comments will be very appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hello,
    I do own the same example with same markings (except for the small stamp on the flap), and the Walther PP fits very well in it...
    Thanks

    It's in great condition and would be perfect for that Walther or Mauser looking for a new home! Nice find!

    Guys, thank you for valuable comments.
    I've found one web resource where the holster is described more or less definitely.
    Pistolen der deutschen Wehrmacht

    Here is the screen:

    There is mentioned that "4" in the stamp means 1944 year of manufacture.

    Regards,
