I believe its rustoleum that has seveal camouflage spray paints with various greens tans and browns. I find the darkest green they offer is pretty close to a ww2 US army OD. You may have to overspray with some of their brown paint to get the correct-ish tint.

OD Paint from WW2 was a lighter and flatter shade of green then the military OD that was post war. with that said like all these things shades varied greatly with all the suppliers and paint fades at different rates in the field. Hence virtually any flat Olive Drab is going to work for you. If it was a full on restoration of a vehicle i'd suggest you get a little more thorough but for gear...you'll be fine. If you really want to get anal about it order rattle cans from RAPCO out of Texas.

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.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
