Default Holster repair?

OK, right up front: this isn't a Luger holster. I have a holster for a Webley MKVI, and the loop is coming loose. Are the Luger holster repair experts willing to take on something like this? It appears simply that the threads have deteriorated, the leather all seems in good-enough shape.

Patrick, a holster for a Webley MKVI comes in various configurations..some have more than one loop...so to speak. Almost all pre 1945 holsters were made with linen thread and linen is simply a thread fiber derived from the flax plant. As such it can fail after decades.

Depending on where this stitching failure is located I could tell you more about getting it correctly restored.

Do you have a photo?

If it might be easier all of my contact info is here, you might want to use email or smart phone.

I have asked Jerry to fix several non-luger holsters - his work is always better than expected
