    Very nice.
    Up to now the only hardshells I have seen with an angled front strap were bml 43's.
    The threads outside directly below the metal plate seem unusual. Is it a repair to the inside lifting strap?

    In the US we must be careful. Now they are selling reproduction holsters with original style stamped markings in the leather. Only obvious flaw, I guess, is that they look mint new condition, from what I have seen. There are apparently no marks to indicate that they are repros, but I am not sure that the marks are 100% correct either.

    Bill,

    Your collection of firearms is most impresive. What a fine example of a P-38 gun rig.

    Regards,

    Well gotta admit that despite guite good stamps thi holster seems to be a repro. Sewinglines do not look right. The thread is nearly white, with no dirtsigns which come really easy after even modest use. And finally inside of the holster - too new - that will say - no signs nearly what so ever that there would have been a gun inside of it ever. Holster seems to be unused - and this is highly unlikely. All this + falsely placed sewing tell too well that this holster is a repro.

    Sorry, but can't see anything wrong with this hard-shell holster "SVaaka"...
    The thick thread that was used on these holsters stay in surprisingly good condition, and I have seen lots of ORIGINAL examples that look even newer...

    A beautiful handgun with a well marked near mint holster "Bill"
    Now where is your spare magazine?

    Love your taste for clean quality "Bill"
