Hello everyone, I was wondering who makes the best Repro Mitchell m1 covers. Thank you in advance.

Last I knew (5-7 years ago when they started popping up), almost all the repro covers for sale online, eBay, etc. came from basically the same source in China so regardless of who you bought it from, it was a Chinese made cover. I don't know if that's changed in the past few years.

I think you can even buy them on Ali Express. But real Mitchell covers are still so plentiful and cheap I wonder why they even bother making repro's?

Ive seen originals start going for crazy prices so I think theyll start being really desirable in a few years. Thank you guys for your help

I would like to think guys are using the repros to personalize and graffiti up instead of originals as Vietnam re-enacting has become much bigger in the last decade.

They're all pretty much the same Made in China covers wherever you buy them, just find the cheapest vendor.
