Does this Audley holster look proper for a Navy??

It's likely the one on eBay.

It looks like it would be manufactured for a commercial Luger with a 6" barrel.
The corroded rivets would be a concern, for me - looks like a potential chaffing issue.

I don't recognize the leather maker, Audley, but there is a women's shoe maker in England by that name.

I found a lead that suggested Audley was associated or became American Leather Co. (Dallas, Texas). The stamp looks like an American design to me and I have seen 1911 holsters in a similar style, but with a full flap and leg straps.

My Dad's 1911 holster was stamped "Bolen Lea".

I would expect that if it was specifically for a Luger it would be marked "LUG" plus the barrel length, but I don't know if that was the way it was done all the way through the production time.

Nice holster Ron.
MacCat
The Audley Co. started making holsters in 1914. They were famous for there Audley Safety holster such as the one pictured by Ron. They sold thousands of there holster to general public and police depts. They are now highly collectible. Very well make. The safety latch is rather tough on trigger guards. I own several of them.

Hi Mike,
Here is my Navy Audley holster. It measures 12 1/2" overall and it fits a Navy Luger like a glove (I've tried it). The patented Audley locking device works like a charm.
Regards, Norm

My Grandmother had a 1907 Savage carry piece from when they lived in Chicago in the 30s.
It had a nice Audley Holster.
Very nice combo.
I have looked for one for my 1907.
Hard to find.

Default navy holster

I bid on it, might fit, might not, but it's cool! If some other forum member wants it, let me know and I'll not bid... but otherwise, it's full steam ahead... best, GT ....

From a design perspective, I am not excited with the exposed trigger.
Too many people put their finger in before the pistol is on target
This does result in some shooting their leg while drawing

Hi Mike, I haven't any problem with moving over should you change your mind... I've got and will be making, a herd of navy shooters, and thought it would be a neat addition. But definitely don't want to step on any toes!!! ... Best, til....lat'r....GT

Cool.
I check there sometimes, haven't lately.
Looks just like Granny's rig.
Some reading into The pistols indicates that they would not be something particularly safe to carry. No FP block and delicate mechanism that could facilitate a ND if dropped.
Nice collectable relic, though.
Thanks for the pic.

Big reason I would never use one as a carry piece.
I usually only carry on occasion, but if I do,there is one up the spout.
Most modern pieces are designed to do this safely.
Someone who wants to depend on a relic from the past to save his life or others is not taking it seriously.
I have a sad story about a Marine who died with his hand on his operating rod.

For those of you who favor that "in your face", open top, Western look, keep your eyes open for the beautifully made holsters by the Heiser Co. of Denver. You come across them at gun shows, particularly out here in the West where they were made (close to where I now live). Like Audley holsters they are getting expensive in a hurry.
