Saw this and had to own it. I’ve seen DLU 1945 P.38 holsters but haven’t seen a K98k pouch until now. Anybody else seen one like it?

I like the use of the two different style rivets, the individuals and the ones mounted in the bracket. The fact that the pouch isn't single layer is a cool variation but I wouldn't say its surprising, look at everything else WW2 German and we will find all sorts of variations to manufacturing that were not implemented even after authorization. The more 1945 pouches that appear the more of these I think we'll find.

Very cool pouches, and I was also a bit surprised to see them look about the same as early war pouches. Nice find!

Here’s the very rare P38 holster. This company made hardshell Luger holsters as early as at least 1940.

What’s interesting is the pouch is not made with the 1945 approved manufacture shortcuts in the back panel you told me about Wolfgang. When we do the book addendum I am going to do a few pages on the 1945 shortcuts. There are actually a lot of 45 manufactured pouches.

I have noticed not all firms went along with all late war shortcuts. Leather maker , helmets , k98k production it all varied maker to maker.. That's one this that makes it interesting and a collectors dream. :thumbsup:

I am fascinated by the late war things, and am not sure exactly why! I love seeing 1945 things no matter what they are.
