I'm trying to locate matching tunics and trousers, either field-grey (Stone grey) or green Heer uniform impressions. I'm having trouble locating a reliable source and I figured a direct answer from you professionals would do me much good.
I didn't know where to post this kind of thread, kind of confused with the selling and trading thread that had the word, ''Impression items'' sorry if this is the wrong section!
So far I've found a M36 stone-grey trousers, where do I find the stone grey tunic? if there is one?
I am also interested in finding a late-war M44 grey tunic.
The M44 wouldn't be the way to go if you want accuracy. It was issued late in the war and only issued to a few units. But, if you really want the M44, I would suggest buying the trousers and tunic separate. It's easier to get your size, and the stuff should be better quality. I recommend Gavin militaria. It's affordable and good quality from what I hear. But if you get the eBay item, it could work, but I don't know the quality.

The M44 tunic, regardless that it's a late war issued item that very few units received in large numbers, is a poor looking tunic for anyone that has the "modern" well fed body type. The bigger you are the worse it looks. If you're 5'8" and 140 lbs it looks fine. If you're 5'11 and 190 lbs, not so much; no different than Ike jackets or British P37 or P40 tunics.

I saw a stone grey wool M36 field uniform at Hikishop. Prices are good, Shipping is usually what gets you. Quality, I cant vouch for. I have heard it is good but sizes run smaller. I am going to get their HBT M40 tunic and M43 trousers for summer. I'll do a review of the quality and service when I do that, it will be soon.

Not really sure, but I think they did use a stone grey tunic for a more formal uniform while field gray was the standard color for the field uniform. Of course, the actual shade of "field grey" varied a lot.

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.
