Hey guys, gotta couple questions here. So I just blew a lot of money on my impression so far (not a lot compared to other people's impressions, but for a lower middle class 16 year old) and its not complete still. I can put the money for miscellaneous pieces of field gear I still need to get, but one thing I want is a great coat. Now German reproduction great coats can run for $170+, and I'd rather not spend that. I have found Swiss great coats to be similar to German great coats, and significantly less expensive. Of course they aren't exactly like the German great coats. I need to add a 2-4 buttons and button holes, I'll add a strip of wool to the shoulders so I can attach my shoulder boards, and I'll replace the Swiss buttons to German ones. I might be missing a couple things. Now for the questions. First off, do they sell any in a field gray or similar color? If not, what's the best way to change the color (dye, fabric paint, etc). Wat model of Swiss great coats are the best? Please attach links if you can and if I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thanks guys!

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.
