I'm starting to look at gear & uniforms for US Army (leg) and I've come across 3 sites that have what I'll need. I'm not able to start dumping cash on original gear so repro are fine for me. I havent' seen any red flags (like that WWII gun site) so I ask the group, are these all good dealers (no particular order)? What price glory At the Front WWII Impressions
Along with that, anyone with experience buying boots (I'm looking at the composition sole boot with the buckles up top) from the above sites, did you have any problems with fit (size is what they say)? Gear shouldn't be a problem but jackets and boots will need to be large, or wide boot, and I'd hate to buy a 54 M43 and find out it's really a 50. Thanks much.
However, the HBT Trousers you pointed out are the early pattern sage green type ... without the cargo pockets. While still period correct, the 2nd Pattern darker OD trouses with cargo pockets was more common.
If a guy is going for the HBT set as a uniform, it might be best to stick with the same pattern for both the jacket (shirt) and trousers. Pick either the early (light shade) or late war (dark OD) HBT's.
BTW ... I was just looking for a pair of light shade trousers to go with my P42 Camo Jacket USMC impression ... you just saved me $15 THANKS!

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.
