Title: London Jack. "with new photos"
Post by: Major 2 on December 15, 2020, 12:30:01 PM
While looking for a holster for my new to me C96 Mauser, I discovered this fellow.

His website is on https://www.etsy.com/shop/LondonJacks 
and his work seem high quality , his feedback is excellent .

I considered , less costly route , like making my own, or reaching out to a few makers

This Holster is in his catalog made to order and considering its made in England and ships free....
I have decided I'll go this route....

Custom made to order  , lined , and shipped  seems a bargain @  $145 US

Fed Ex say's the gun will deliver Thurs. 
- the holster 6–8 weeks , from when I PayPal the order .... that will be the end of this week.

That's certainly a good holster for the money. It's made in England and ships for free, too. Looking forward to your photos of it when you have it.

The guy has some nice looking stuff.  Interesting holster, haven't seen a Mexican loop type for a Mauser before.

I thought so,  Will.


Abilene, That is what struck me...  I searched the net for a western style , first I saw  was his  offerings in the pattern.
I was impressed , contacted him... quite personable
He is sending a PayPal order form

I've looked at his stuff before, very impressive work. The wet forming on the back side of the skirt makes me happy.

My rig is of course London Jack's holster ,

 the cartridge box is by the late Dale Jarnagin
C & D Jarnagin  #209       US Pistol Box   
I bought probably 30 years ago , and used reenacting
it holds 40 rounds of Mauser 7.63 in 4 stripper clips ( a 5th if I had another one )

The money belt is by my own hand,  about 8-10 years ago or so , the standing wheat white bronze buckle from Will Gormally

Focus is a bit soft, as the camera/phone is hand held and lighting is a bit subpar.

Jack owes me a new keyboard!  Drool destroyed it!  That is nice.   Just watched Joe Kidd which started my fondness for the Broomhandle.   That is truly a piece of art!
