I just got some used German Leather Y straps The Yoke and the front 2 straps look fantastic, but the back strap has seemed to been replaced with a Cheap Hiki looking strap, The Black leather looks fine but the "brownside" look ugly tanish. Thinking I could dye it to make it match better, suggestions?
From now on our slogan will be "Now, People, Rise up and release the storm"
If you are going for a "black" look, leather dye can be found at most any store that sells leather working products. It essentially is a black ink that soaks into the leather. If you want it to be a darker brown, a nice oil for leather, like the kind used on baseball gloves, usually will darken it.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
