    Default Mystery Holster? Does the shoe fit?

    So, I got this holster in the shop today... The gentleman said his dad brought it back during WWII and I thought since it is VE day, I would buy something. So I bought it from him, the pistol that came in the holster is long gone apparently. (He just moved and found it in his stuff, gave me a uniform also.)

    What do you guys think? It fits my Walther PP .32ACP.

    Thanks

    Just a unmarked small auto holster I had one almost identical in a lighter color of leather with a Sauer 38H pistol in it I bought it direct from a vet back in the 80's marks are nice but there are many original TR period pieces that are not marked but still original nice condition holster. timothy

    Maybe it is some private contract holster?

    Actually, I believe it's abit of a myth that Every pistol had it's Very Specific holster Just for it. I've seen many holster brought back with capture papers that had numerous different holsters than the next one. Some holster, definitely specific, but then you have others that fit more than one type and make of gun being used for several kinds.
