After picking up a very nice prewar Belgian Military Hi Power
Air gun Trigger Wood Gun barrel Gun accessory


... And flat board shoulder stock...

I was left seeking the accompanying items which would've come with the pistol when originally issued.

Didn't realize how difficult they were to find, so I looked for about 7 years, until a few months ago I found the extremely scarce leather stock holster. The type of holster which mounts to the stock is relatively common, but my pistol would've been issued with a stock sans rivets, and it's holster would have contained both the stock, and the pistol, inside. Very, very rare.

So the last major piece missing was the dual magazine pouch. Luckily I just convinced someone I had been in talks with to part with one of his. Unfortunately it is serialized, and doesn't match my pistol, but I am extremely happy to have found one.

Anyone have pistol #17815?

Now I need a belt, cleaning rod and two prewar magazines.

Fantastic rig assemblage, Juniorloaf.

I know where there are two pre-war mags.... but.... they go with my pre-war gun. :)

Good to see you posting again!

I have a couple of those holster pouches and the serial number on them do not match any of my pistols. In any event I am happy to have the pouches.

The combo holsters come in brown and black.

I know where some are also. In fact I had a 613 marked Hi Power in the 45,000 range at NGD and a person looking at it complained that the mag was not 613 marked and he passed on it. But the mag was proper for a pre war Hi Power.

613 marked mags are relatively very scarce. Funny that was a deal breaker though. If you want to part with that mag, PM me :)

613 mags can be scarce, but would not be proper for a 613 marked Hi Power in the 45,000 serial number range.

The Hi Powers (roughly) between 44,500 and 47,000 were found in Belgian military acceptance sites as most have some but not all of the Belgian military acceptance proofs. That shows they were issued with the pre war markings. So the Germans took the pistols and put the 613 marking on them & did not bother with the mags. Now with the 613 marked Hi Powers starting with serial number 50,000, there were no Belgian military acceptance proofs.
