Now that I'm stuck at home most of the time I decided to do some spring cleaning on all the gun related accessories that I've accumulated over the years...

I was able to identify most of the stuff but for the life of me I couldn't figure out what gun went with this holster...

It's unmarked..all I can really say is that it appears to be for a full size semi auto pistol of some sort that uses a single stack magazine.

I've tried to google the usual suspects (P38, Lahti, P210, Radom...CZ38, CZ52, Swedish M1907....)but non seem to result a hit.

Any ideas folks?

My guess is a P38...but the color may be wrong...Germans used black leather to my knowledge...but the brown or natural color might suggest one of the Soviet Block countries. Rod

Most likely a TT-30 or one of the Soviet satellites' copies.

Judging by the belt loops, it was meant to be worn cross draw.

Nearly all European military holsters in the early-to-mid 1900s were worn that way.

During the WW1 era, most Imperial German holsters were brown leather.

During the WW2 era, the German Army, Navy, SS, and some Police typically used black leather holsters, while the Air Force, some other Police, and many of the various other army Nazi Party organizations typically used brown leather holsters.

Spanish. For an Astra 600. The Germans also used them in WWII.
