Here is a few photos of an original holster for Skorpion vz.61.
It can be used for Hudson modelgun, too, as I don't think replica holsters are available for such strange shaped gun.
I don't have a Hudson Skorpion, so I can't comment on details ;-)
Magazine has to be removed before storing replica, as it does not fit in this holster.

Please note that holster is quite large - it will fit on A4 sheet of paper, with almost 30cm length and almost 20cm width (at the top only). Holster is originally stamped, but I don't know exact origin of this stamp Wink Gun holster is made in 1964 and it was used: inside there are marks from barrel tip, you can see owner(?) name written on the flap, and a number.

There is also another type of Skorpion holster with a leather shoulder strap.
It is made of the same type leather and looks very similar, except for additional attachments.
I do not have a picture though.
Please note that some holsters sold as Skorpion holsters are in fact for Polish PM wz.63.
They have a different shape, shoulder strap is not leather.

The next item is a holster for two magazines.
It has slightly curved shape, just like magazines (two are pictured here).
Magazine holster is from 1974, it was almost new - stocked in magazine.

I guess you can get these from usual places (military surplus selling Eastern Europe stuff).
The set you see here was about 25 GBP / 40 USD (including two magazines and shipping).

Verified with Hudson Skorpion - it fits :-) Hudson magazines do not fit however, as they seem to be a bit longer. I will post pictures later.

Also found a small batch of another type of holsters sold from a military surplus. These are designed to keep the pistol under an arm, in "secret agent" fashion. Long belt goes over your left&right arm and behind your back. Pistol is held in holster by a single strap over the top. Another strap on the lower back of the holster is probably used to secure holster to the belt.

A few more shots, with a Hudson Skorpion now :-)

Comments:
  • Skorpion fits only with magazine detached
  • there is no provision for magazine, but you can slip it into holster below the grip. Note that it will touch model and scratch it.
  • flap and belt hold model in upright position, when belt is unfastened model will slightly shift backwards.
  • holster is very comfortable, surprisingly Skorpion does not seem too large or heavy to carry in that position.
  • it is possible to adjust the webbing, although it might not fit if you have a very large frame

That looks really nice Very Happy
I am suprised that a sholder holster for this gun can be worn and feel comfortable, but I suppose bigger guns than this are worn that way!

Comfortable = initial impression and a few minutes running around until I fetched camera to take these pictures.
It could get less comfortable in real carry conditions, but then again - even a small pistol can be a burden when carried in this way.
