Small presentation of a WTP1 with holster
« on: July 13, 2016, 07:42:23 AM »
Last month I found a nice little WTP1 holster to accompany the pistol I have had for a couple of years.

A nice match and an interesting military style WTP holster with a separate pouch which contained the cleaning rod.

Enjoy,

Hi Vilm,

I have an almost identical holster, less the cleaning rod pouch. Nice example of a WTP I with Austrian proofs.

Very nice  - is the inscription on the inside an ordinary post address?

I think it is but difficult to decipher. I will post some close ups when I get home.

Created a little box for the WTP.

Vlim,

The box looks like it was made for the WTP. So I am guessing you found a vintage box and fitted the inside to accommodate the WTP? I have done this too for a few of my examples. I have also seen it done by other collectors. It makes for a very attractive presentation.

Since the box does not have room for the holster, if you send it to me I will be happy to store it for you. (intended as humor)

Regards,

Yes, it was a vintage box with the right amount of patina.


I used some old velvet to create the lining. The goal was to give it some impression of age, that corresponded with the pistol and manual.
