Carry leather for Walther P38/P1?

So I got a Walther P1, and I am toying with the idea of using it for CCW every once in a while. Originally it was meant to be a plinker only, but the gun is light enough and points well enough that I feel the urge to give the old warhorse a try as a carry gun.

Now I've checked my favorite holster makers, and nobody seems to offer any leather for the old girl. Alessi, Mitch Rosen, Don Hume, Galco, Bianchi, DeSantis...not a single leather P38 rig among them.

Does anyone make a decent leather IWB or pancake rig for that gun, or do I have to tote ol' Bessie in an Uncle Mike's GeneriSack (tm) nylon holster? I have several that fit the gun, but I feel that it deserves to ride in leather.

I KNOW somebody still makes holsters for the P-38. If they don't list one, many of the smaller makers will custom make you a holster for it.

This link has a more, or less, complete list of holster makers.

I've started using a belt slide holster from G&G for my IDPA holster. It came with a laundry list of autos that it fit - should handle a P-38, IMHO. IIRC, the slide is a 90% match to the Beretta 92, so should fit.
