HISTORIC WWII .45 CALIBER PISTOL HOLSTERS PAIR FROM U.S. & NAZI GERMANY

wwii pistol holstersThis is a historic pair of authentic World War II handgun holsters, one from a U.S. soldier and one from a German Nazi. The German holster was a "spoils of war" prize taken from a European battlefield by the American soldier who owned the U.S. holster!

The U.S. WWII Enger-Kress leather shoulder holster for a military service M1911A1 Colt 45 caliber handgun has a few markings, including a hand-etched L 3183 on the front to the lower left of the stamped embossed U.S. decoration. wwii usaf shoulder holsterThat combination is also stamped on two areas of the holster strap. The strap appears to have been modified by the serviceman who used it, as there is a small piece of leather cut away at the upper left of the embossed U.S. decoration. I believe this was done either to make drawing the pistol easier, or making it so the finger could reach the trigger while holstered, or both. Some dark wear marks inside the holster show where the original pistol was held.

The 1941 WWII German military leather belt holster appears to hold an equivalent .45 caliber pistol. It has the stamp ftc 1941 followed by the eagle atop swastika (with eagle's head facing his right shoulder) and the Waffenamt code WaA 182. There are no other stamps or markings. Some dark wear marks inside the holster show where the original pistol was held.

Both gun holsters are in surprisingly good condition for their age and use. The leather is not cracking or brittle, and the holsters feels like it they have many years of use left in them. The leather and snaps have been untouched. By untouched, we mean not cleaned. We usually clean everything we offer, but considering the historical value of this holster, I wanted any possible war residue to remain intact.

These holsters radiate an aura of real history, and handling them gives you a very strange and special feeling. The original owner of the U.S. holster probably shot the owner of the German holster, and for this reason, we will offer them only as a pair. Though this might not be the most practical thing to do, we feel really weird about breaking them up (so please don't ask).
