    FS **New** Luigi half case for M8/9 with flaps for M-Mate 2 base plate

    I ordered a new custom half case from Luigi, but unfortunately he neglected to add the Thumbs Up cutout. He quickly admitted his error, and a replacement case is on it's way to me. As a favor, I have offered to sell the first one for him here. It will save him considerable time, hassle, and money compared to shipping it back to him. I am making zero profit from it; the payment will go from me to Luigi. Asking $325 shipped net to me. This is a discount of about $50 plus it will ship immediately without the delay that Luigi has with special orders.

    Here are the details:

    • Rally leather
    • Built in hand grip
    • NO back cover
    • 2 bottom flaps for access to the battery and SD openings when used with Luigi's M-Mate 2 bottom plate. (The M-Mate 2 is NOT included.)

    I have seen several Luigi cases, and this one is especially beautiful leather with lovely character and perfect workmanship. Below you can see the back and also the inside of the flaps on the bottom. Please contact me with any questions.

    Luigi wants to cut his losses on this one; apparently he faces a host of import problems if I have to ship it back. I'm his "agent", so to speak, for this item.

    Here's the front side showing the built in grip.

    Tom,
    I had a "rally" case from Luigi. It was gorgeous. This should sell in a flash.

    Brad, you have no idea how I want to keep this one. Maybe I should get a second M9 for it?

    Dang, if it weren't for that Thumbs up cutout, I'd jump on this. ...alas...

    You can actually notch the back of the case exactly where the thumbs-up thumb portion sticks out with a diagonal cutter and it works very well. In fact, it is sturdier than the Luigi cutout. This case is already stitched so it won't open any further over time. Just envision a small vertical cutout about half an inch from top to bottom and 1/8 inch side to side.

    I use my TU with the case as-is. The case actually protects the body at the contact point. Grip it and rip it.

    Definitely a good deal then for someone. Either as is, or with an Xacto knife.

    What a great deal on quite a custom case. Here's a teaser...

    The TU cut out is very easy to do with an X-Acto knife and either "Heel Dressing" (for shoes) or a black Sharpie in a pinch.

    Michael, those are lovely images.

    Tom, I presume that the half case does not come with this beautiful neck strap?
