with double metal loops on the left side intended for a leather shoulder strap (not included).

Upper Flat portion of the Butt wood is Chequered. The stock completely encloses the pistol
and is larger in its dimensions compared to the Browning or C96 Mauser Wooden Shoulder
Specification & Features Included:
Cleaning Rod compartment.
Brass Loop-handle Cleaning rod.
Stripping/Loading Tool Metal Retaining Clip.
Chequered Shoulder Butt.
The holster stock was developed in the 1910-1913 time-frame and were intended to be used
as a shoulder stock for early Artillery Luger's and to also act as a wooden holster for
the pistol as well.
There were only a handful of these stocks actually made (estimated at less than 50) with almost
no examples being seen or even offered today on the collector market. Needless to say these were
a very short lived prototype variation (adding to its collectibility), produced by DWM under
direction of Georg Luger, who abandoned this concept in favor of using the flat-board stock
version with the Artillery leather holster. This later design being far more durable and easier
to produce than the former.
