    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.

    Regards

    thanks Ger...my idea is that the grip has been taken from a luft sword miniature and the wire was replaced
    Thanks again

    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

    Hi Doug,

    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....
