Pick Up: Byf 43 Walther P-38 All Matching

    Congrats on your new p38

    There are tons of repo holsters out there and this one reminds me of the ones I have seen/handled in person in the past, and I think your gut feelings about its unusually perfect condition is correct.

    Just to compare, I went and found my P-38 holster which is 1941-dated. It's abviously 'salty', but I rather like the worn look. I bought it nearly 20 years ago for what seemed like a heavy price at the time, but now would probably be a bargain......







    I'm 99.9% sure it's OK ( since joining this Forum, I'm never 100% on anything ! )

    My P-38 is a byf43 also : yours looks very nice indeed and is a great addition to a collection......

    Thanks Everyone, I got the holster for free with the pistol and still got it for a great price. So, no harm done by finding out its a repo. On the search for two original now...
