I quite like it.
It looks period to me
Also my idea!
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
looks a good one to me.
my 2 cents:
the grip is not what i would expect on a Hörster mini, the leather and that type of gripwire is not commonly seen on Hörster mini's:
I would like to see a celluloid grip with a twisted wire.
I would pass on this one.
thanks Ger...my idea is that the grip has been taken from a luft sword miniature and the wire was replaced
I would not be too sure that Horster didn't use both type of grips both celluloid and leather covered.
I think it is perfectly reasonable that the leather grip was on more of a luxury item.
First up a labelled Horster Mini with leather covered grip
Typical Celluloid handle that Ger refers to
All the best
i didnt say it couldnt be Original, i said: not what i expect on a Hörster mini, in fact i have seen dozens all having the celluloid grip.
In this case i simply prefer a well known textbook example over a "DeLuxe" example.
thats why i said: my 2 cents....
