WWI C96 MAUSER PISTOL SHOULDER HOLSTER & AMMO BANDOLEER.
First adopted in WWI by German Officers, these are the leather pistol holsters designed for the standard C.96 Mauser Pistol. Each holster comes with an “over the shoulder” bandolier complete with bullet loops and a stripper clip pouch. This rig was not designed to be used without the wood shoulder stock.
Extremely popular with German Officers and extensively used after WWI in various other parts of the world.
Note: The bandolier will hold both 9×19mm Parabellum and 7.63×25mm Mauser.
While the bullets are different in size, the case width is virtually identical, due to the Mauser 7.63 being bottleneck.
