Default 1937 Kreighoff

Hello,

I thought you all would enjoy seeing pictures of this rig. It doesn't belong to me but was purchased by a dealer friend of mine who found it at a show in Texas. He allowed me to borrow it so I could take pictures and place them on my web site.

Regards, Leon

Very nice, indeed. I have never seen a holster for a P-08 marked in this fashion. Quite interesting.

Question: Shouldn't one of the two matching magazines have the plus sign "+" to indicate that it is the spare? Or is this something that Krieghoff did not do?

Very nice Krieghoff there Leon, with two matched mags!!
Yes, I have seen Krieghoff holsters marked as such as well.

The use of the '+' symbol to identify the spare magazine is typically found on Police Luger magazines... not military.

John,

I think you have it the other way around, "+" is found on military magazines. "1", "2", "3" is found on police magazines. This does not apply to Krieghoff magazines, which are only military and the spare is not marked.
