The drop holsters as above were designed to be attached to a loose fitting belt with shoulder strap support in order to work properly. The original design is based on the patent by SS Standartfurher Arved Theuermann. These holsters were made in the late war for the Luftwaff and Himler used one. I don't know if the original design is pre war or not.

I picked up a German made P38/ P1 post war holster for $7. There are a lot of these around and mine was from a surplus dealer in excellent shape but the flap needed to be restitched to the rig. Easily done with an awl & spool set. I've also used sticky ripstop patches for tents or ponchos cut to size to cover inside rivets. But any soft thin material cut and glued in over rivets will work. If it gets too thick, it can catch the frame and be pulled off.

The next holster is an odd one. I purchased this from a site that sells a lot of Airsoft stuff. The holster was advertised as "for Luger, P38, and 1911". I have to say, it fits all three very well. It also fits the CZ-75B quite well. This holster looks like it was patterned after a Browning HP holster, but it is much larger. It is obviously intended for a 5 inch barrel on the pistol. There was no attempt to market this as a WWII holster, and there are none of the phony stamps on it as with most reproductions. Cost was under $30 as far as I can remember. I have never seen another one after I purchased this one. It is rather well made, and it came to me in an envelope with no country of origin for the holster listed.

If I could only keep on holster that I have, it would be one of the series below. This is the Bianchi Universal Military Holster, and it is as close to absolutely universal as you can get. It is designed to be worn at least 14 different ways, and I have seen well over 1100 different pistol designs that can fit into it. The M-12 version of this holster was adopted by the US Military for the Beretta M-92, and the UM-84 series came out shortly afterward. The UM-84 was the civilian version of this holster that came in two semi-automatic versions (5-inch barrel and 4-inch barrel) as well as a revolver model. I was one of the first in my circle of friends to adopt this holster, and I wore my Astra A-80 .38 Super in a black UN-84II mounted on a Bianchi Model 1020 pistol belt virtually any time that I left the house. This combination is still in service with my brother in Wisconsin nearly 30 years later.

I used this holster design (in green) when I carried my Glock M21SF in the field. This is the first holster design that I used for my CZ-75 pistols. Naturally, this was one of the first holsters that I purchased for the Walther P38. When I carry a Walther in one of these, it is the Bianchi UM84/92I size with the trigger guard channel.

This holster can be mounted on a belt of up to 2-1/2 inch diameter using the Bianchi Quick Lock mounting hardware, or the holster can be mounted to a standard belt using the cast in belt loops.

New holster that came with a recent pistol purchase. This holster is in excellent condition, so I was surprised when I read the stamping on the back:

1095/***120 The * indicates I can't read these.
Ta.F.Pist Kal. 9mm (W)
B.M.G. 3/58

There is a drooped wing eagle acceptance stamp on the inside flap. I have not seen this before. I would be interested in whatever anyone can tell me about these markings.

Never seen that one either. The number string are most likely NATO numbers. Not sure what BMG is. The BMR indicates BGS or some other Federal Police agency. I'm sure the meaning of the drooped eagle here is the same as on the P-1's. Just never seen it on a holster before.

Oops I meant BMR not BMG sorry for the misnomer

BMG was the shortcut of the 'Bundesministerium für Gesundheit' => Federal health agency. But there are two problems: It was founded in 1961 and no one used to have a pistol...

But what if someone was really, really sick?

I found another version of this holster (Ebay). It is marked:

1095/12/120/6169
F. Pist.38.Kal.9mm(W)
B.M.G. 9/59

According to the seller, this is probably a police issue holster. B.M.G is the manufacturer, B. Meyer of Gronau.

Thanks again for sharing another one of your great holsters Punch.

I too have just got one of these holsters to go with my 9/65 P1 but mine is marked;
8440-12-120-6169
Ta.F Pist. 38. Kal 9mm(W)
F&B 3/67

& it hasn't got the drooped wing eagle stamp or any other stamp on the inside flap like yours. Still a great holster & I like it. Thanks again
