    Polish Radom VIS P-35(p) Holster....
    Bill P35b is the designation for the Belgium Browning High Power, this holster looks just like my Vis holster... I am wondering could this be a Vis holster marked and delivered as Browning for war time expediency?

    This piece is interesting. It is an old beat up PP holster Unmarked brown and civilian with front flap scarification. What makes it very interesting is that it is the piece pictured in the popular reference book (at least in my country) German Pistols and Holsters 1934-1945, VOLUME III by LL. COL. Robert D. Whittington III, U.S. Army (RET). The piece appears on page 76, listed as: Figure 59: Walther PP breakaway. No Markings. Red/Brown cowhide. Unknown Category. Original Holster for Nazi Tirolean Walther PP, serial # 135347P, (I wonder what has happened to this gun as I do not have it with the holster), it goes on: illustrated on page 283 of Volume II. Steel button. Height : 7.12 inches (182mm). Maximum flap width 5.12 inches (130). Stout Photo/Author's collection.
    I have included pics of the volume cover and page for reference. If you were looking directly at both you could see the match is unmistakable.

    The (b) is a well known BNZ mistake just a upside down (p) found on this run of 1944 pistols holsters. Has nothing to do wqith the Browning Hi Power... BILL

    Does anyone have any examples of private purchase holsters for pocket pistols like the Mauser HSC or the Walther Model 8. I have always wanted to know if there were any popular holster manufacturers or leather smiths that sold to officers in the pre war period.
