LϟϟAH1944: M14 to G43 is very hard Jun 8, 2015 15:33:16 GMT -5
Dracul: There are numerous threads in the Armory section about M14 to G43 conversions. There isn't one solid method just yet unfortunately. Jun 9, 2015 11:01:29 GMT -5
spcmann281: hey, Iv always been fascinated with WWII especially with the whole entirety of the ETO and well i've just come into some money recently and decided that I may as well start my collection. my first uniform i'm torn with I know I want a U.S. infantry uniform Jun 15, 2015 0:04:46 GMT -5
spcmann281: what I want for my impression is not only for look but I want practicality behind it because well i'll be using it for hunting and camping and such but here in lovely central Maine it's cold that time of year basically I want to know pros and cons of the Jun 15, 2015 0:07:11 GMT -5
spcmann281: Field Jacket OD (M41) with the M37 wool trousers and M37 enlisted mans shirt, service shoes and Dismounted leggings Vs heat comfort and wear of the M43 field uniform, and is it regulation to wear the service shoe and leggings with the M43 trousers Jun 15, 2015 0:09:56 GMT -5
spcmann281: also How warm are the M43's actually and do you all wear them as a layerd system? i know the two buckle boots were common but I've got a thing for the leggings and TypeII service shoe Jun 15, 2015 0:10:22 GMT -5 *

spcmann281: plus i got excited and the first thing i came across were leggings so thats what i'm building around Jun 15, 2015 0:18:14 GMT -5
Abbot: I'm fairly certain the leggings were allowed and used thoughout the war... The infantry were not issued new gear as quickly as the airborne, so the service shoes were most likely used almost up to the end, but don't quote me... Jun 15, 2015 8:40:02 GMT -5
spcmann281: excellet, thank you Abbot! Jun 15, 2015 17:49:11 GMT -5

savoy6: anyone know if the mags for the S&T/ matrix M3a1 will work in the ICS M3? Jul 8, 2015 13:11:05 GMT -5
stuka: from my understanding they are different as the s&t also works with ares and ares I believe doesn't work with ics Jul 13, 2015 23:11:47 GMT -5
gunmetalaustin: Anyone know any good sites for M1 Garand Gas Cylinder/w front sites? cheers Jul 18, 2015 18:49:12 GMT -5
djairman2345: Anyone know if there are any strictly ww2 airsoft matches in the Dallas Fort worth area? Jul 27, 2015 16:51:22 GMT -5
stuka: I don't think there is a such thing anywhere. There are events here and there (not necessarily in dallas) but no place is just ww2 all the time Jul 27, 2015 20:01:11 GMT -5
