Well, today i picked up quite an interesting piece today. today i bought a US M8 Scabbard for 20 dollars at a surplus store but it has been strangely repainted. The scabbard body itself is painted black, and there is a white 5 on the front of it. Do you think this could possibly be a navy item? they tended to repaint all of there gear. and do you think it would be good to strip off this black paint and repaint it olive drab or is it in someway valuable? Anyone that can get me information on this scabbard it would be greatly appreciated. thanks brady
says US M8 BMCO
Black paint and a 5.

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.
