Has anyone bought this new C96 Mauser yet? I've seen it listed on several Airsoft sites, Gunnerairsoft, RSOV, etc. It's a all metal gun with blowback. The Youtube vid on the Gunnerairsoft site looks pretty good with a pretty strong kick back from the gun. It's a pretty cheap only about $72. I haven't seen any reviews on it yet though. Really Like to buy one. It's only semi-auto though, not full auto.
LϟϟAH1944: I don't think its the guns...I'm pretty certain it sjust mainly a ww2 blankfire event. In addition to that, its for organized units mainly.

antonius agustus: Unless you've registered in a unit, which I didn't think you needed to do (I was wrong), they won't let you in if your in uniform and gear. I'm liking Reading's airshow less and less every year. And Jerry, that's too bad because that was an excellent idea.

LϟϟAH1944: Antonius, they let you in if youre not with a unit- you just cant have weapons.

antonius agustus: It must be a new rule then, definitely don't remember it the last couple years.

Jerry-ADK: Yah, I guess WW2 airsoft isn't what they want at their event. Any other kind of WW2 enthusiast is ok, just not reenactors with bb guns. I guess ill have to join a BF unit if I want to go and period camp.

LϟϟAH1944: The thing is, its not an organized unit. Reading is mainly for larger, organized and established units.

unterfarbfuhrer: Hey. I'm starting out. I only have at the moment a M43 tunic/trousers set, and soon I will have a M40 Helmet. However, since I have no source of income, I need loaner gear. I would need lowboots and gaiters, leather belt and y-straps, and a breadbag.

unterfarbfuhrer: If it is alright, could I just use a East German canteen? Like I said, I have no source of income, so my hands are tied behind my back.

Jerry-ADK: Unterfarbfuhrer, where are you located?
Jul 1, 2014 12:44:40 GMT -5
patrickl29th: Do you use a m14 socom for a m1 Garand conversion or just a regular m14?

ssgjoe: Unterfarbfurher, what you could do is get an East German canteen than start to replace it with period correct stuff. First thing I would swap out would be to swap it for a wool cover, than a cup, then strap, and finally the flask.

Dracul: Ugh, I think I'm going mad. I can't seem to find that one reference thread that had links to the cheapest/cheaper US uniforms and gear.

patrickl29th: Dracul ATF has some cheap uniforms for there quality. I had my m1943s for 5 years and never had a problem
Jul 14, 2014 13:56:56 GMT -5
Dracul: Yeah, but I'm looking more for some of the gear. I forgot where I got my leggings, but I remember getting them for like 20 bucks and now I can't find any leggings for my wife thats under 40 bucks.
