I am making another Borchardt style case.  This is for the 8mm AMP Artillery.

A Mauser C-96 holster works just fine.  Sarco has black ones for about $30.00 !
 
I am having real problems posting pictures.  It works about once out of 50 attempts.  Says I have a "malicious code" and I have "failed the security scan."  That's why I have not posted a picture with the gun in the holster.  It looks like the holster will accept an 8.5" barrel, just custom modify the strap.  Cheers

The barrel was made in 2018.  I have been "developing" it ever since.  There are only the two 8mmAMP guns.  The Artillery and the Carbine.  It is like the 8mm Kurtz with a shorter bullet to achieve a 1.60" Overall length.  I may be going overboard by playing up a German theme.  Mauser / Lugar.  I have a Totenkopf coming for the holster.

Hi Bruce,
while it might work for your AMP pistol (if not to loose), it is actually not a holster for the pistol itself but more a harness for the shoulderstock of the shnellfeuer pistol (c96)
Just an idea, why not making a wooden schoulderstock/holster for your 8mm AMP, that would be the max!!!

Can you share some news about the loads for your 8mm AMP rounds?

Thanks for the information Luc.  That is certainly embarrassing.  I think it looks good and note that this is a "fantasy" gun and not a restoration.  The 7.5" Artillery barrel with the tall front sight blade seems to fit pretty well into the "holster." 
I fired 5 rounds of the 8mmAMP using the Artillery barrel on a North Hollywood frame.  I used 19gr. of WW296 and fired it.  It worked and cycled but the hold-open didn't stay open on the last round.  I will go up to 21.5gr for my next test.  The 8mm bullet is about 155gr.
I still think this holster looks real nice with an Auto Mag in it.  I was thinking it would be a good rig to use in the field or walk a gun-show with.....HA
