FINISH APPLIED , and LEGSTRAP are for the additions of a choice of finishes and a strap to go around the leg , NOT holsters themselves

I keep a regularly updated album of C-96 holsters in my photobucket , I am not always the best at updating my listings either so usually your best bet is to contact me first


Ok bear with this description its a cut and paste from an auction site thats very big , I sell on , and I Despise
I'll try to rewrite this thing slightly for more accuracy with the Etsy mechanics . Bear with me

The are very handmade, cut, sewn, assembled etc, only power tool I use even is a drill press to place holes where I cant reach em with my old leather punch

Im not selling any weapons here , As I read the policy. even handmade knives or vintage blades are not permitted.

I like this site and I would like to be able to sell them here , I find the listing prices and percentage of the sale price that etsy takes as a commission quite fair , and I like the more open market feel of the place .

But I can live with these rules . In reading them I see nothing prohibiting My C-96 being shown in this photos , please tell me if I am in error...

Its not for sale ... I'll be glad to tell you were to get one and lotsa others great old guns , but this one is my Precious... and yes I do sit around stroking it and calling it that .....

Theres alot of " Steampunk " stuff on here , I cant think of many more compatible real Firearms then the C-96, the Borchardt perhaps with its large toggle action.

I may try to personally get into the "steampunk" scene. Its seems to be very compatible with my style ... Actually was looking over an old 1870s Swiss black powder cartridge Rifle called a Vetterili , an early bolt action that was on one of the Gun Auction sites ( pre 1898s can be ordered shipped straight o your home in most states very neat items)
And it was advertised as "being very steampunk in style"

I guess Ive been very into steampunk style well before becoming aware of the term, or more accurately Steampunk is based on a vintage style that I like many people find truly enticing

Any ways one of these holsters and a airsoft gun and youve got a great costume piece.

Or if youve got an old C-96 lieing around I make repro leather aswell as modern carry designs

Price varies on construction time and material cost for C-96 holsters - ask for quote , - some patterns are shown with a price quote

... I did this listing for 5 items ... hmm no best offer feature... ok Use the "Request custom Item" I guess , or just use a Money order ...3% commission on an item $10 less Is what 30 cents wasted ?? not too worried its still alot better then E-pay's usury

Custom Made or a from selection of established patterns

Happy to do CosPlay orders , Broomhandle fans get a kick out of seeing the C-96 in pop culture and I am no different feel free to ask ..

The C-96 has been a leading star of movies comics and video games since the 30s much the same as the Desert Eagle is today ......... however the C-96 actually has seen alot of use in the real world and is very well liked by shooters and collectors unlike the ungainly and over-hyped DE .

Please note this isnt a listing for a fixed item , Rather then the purchase of the construction A holster made to your needs

If you dont have specific desire and are wanting just a general holster please tell me the purpose , and what form of pistol its intended for IE - Bolo, basic C-96 , or extended mag/ large detachable mag

The first holster I made was a very sturdy strongside flap holster. It was designed for use in sand, dust, and rain for secured and safe carry, with an attempt for somewhat subdued appearance for open carry. Before that I had a few holsters I had used that weren't designed for the C-96

My first holster for my C-96 was a synthetic dropleg holster, not meant for the gun but fit it but wasn't ideal in appearance comfort or reliability as the barrel protruded from it in carry , I also had used a British pattern canvas ammo pouch as a concealed carry holster not fully aware of the laws regarding OC of a handgun in my state at the time , though I was very into large knife OC , I took the design of the closure used in my personal holster from that pouch , this closure system works great - see "Border Vigilante"

Now I'm sure many of you have been frustrated attempting to find a holster for the C-96 that fits your needs as I once was, and I hope I am able to help in this.

I am offering customized Holsters . I can do flapped holsters, open holsters in a late cowboy fashion, the 1920-current fashion, dropleg, Sci Fi , etc and have a basic design for a shoulder holster worn in the fashion of the WW2 US tanker and Airborn rig. I can make holsters designed to fit in the M1911 fashion from a US system web belt. I have US web belts, Bianchi duty belts, and several sizes of leather belts that I have on hand.to use for fitting Get in contact with me before purchase to inquire and discuss your order. Holsters are sized on a WW1 Wartime Commercial C-96 and are guaranteed to fit a standard C-96, and will fit many better quallity airsoft guns as well.

I can make holsters designed for use with real or airsoft guns with extended magazines . And even have a few old toy "DL-44"s (Han Solo ) lieing around

Holsters can be fitted for either cocked and locked, or hammer down and locked carry ...... either way you carry I strongly stress a C-96 needs to be carried with the safety on if its chambered, the NS and Universal safety models are ok for "cocked and locked" carry if in good mechanical condition.

The Border Vigilante is a modern original design by me and my first creation , its designed for strongside belt carry , very positive but fast retention - $55 orderable left or right handed , and can be had made in a rivet free construction base design is very open to adaptation

The Eva holster was a custom order from a cosplayer , It took abit of research and artistic license but I feel is the best you will find that combines the fantasy of the game and art , with a real World function , the pouch is sized for fitting a CYMA airsoft magazine but will fit a real 10 round stripper clip aswell, It is fitted on my real C-96 but will fit most airsoft aswell , buckle was handrolled - Ive got a fixed template for this -

$55 will fit US web belt as thats part of the cosplay , ask about the cost of tweaking it - 6oz Black veg tanned leather construction

The Weimar era (1918-33) holster has a mounted single clip pouch ,it may be the Ideal for reenactors of WW2 and many people wanting a historical carry holster , once again I dont have alot of background on this holster - See New Picture , Leather shown undyed or oiled This holster is NICE , Re-enactor, scenerio Airsofter or many general carriers this thing would be at the top of my list of recomendations , it is aptly suited for belt carry , "Sam Browne" system, or slung with just a cross strap - I use one as a carry holster heavily oiled in cold wet conditions - works great , Its a hammer down holster

The Weimar is available as a fixed pattern but can be had mirrored in Left hand configuration price for either is $60 - doesnt include shoulder strap can be ordered cut for an extended mag no additional cost , other tweaks ask - the base pattern is elaborate and uses alot of 6-7oz leather -

I generally tie my lacings on the outside of the holsters , this is for drag/ wear / snag reduction but I can tie internally if desired

My material stocks on hand are undyed vegetable tanned leather in 7-8oz thickness, darker undyed 10oz thickness, and black pebble grained veg tanned in 6oz thickness.

Shipping price includes insurance and delivery confirmation, no refunds on custom orders

 Will ship to US , Northern Autonomous Zone ( area north of US) , Japan , Europe ,and Australia -NZ - ask about rates , Ive got the " everywhere" else to reflect USPS international priority insured , there are cheaper options

Custom holsters for other firearms/airsoft/props are possible , ask , I'm pretty resourceful
