  1. Got lucky on the app Mercari. Just checked eBay and I see they're going for around $60. If you shop around you'll find one cheaper.
  2. Cammenga makes them. Mine is marked MODEL 27 CAMMENGA and then NSN6605-01-571-6052
  3. Can't go wrong with a standard issued lensatic compass. They're pretty easy to find for sale. I just bought one online for $20.
  4. That's an impressive collection of fairly modern airborne and SOF. I like the beret flashes with the matching jump ovals. A lot of hours must've gone into that on both his and his wife's part.
  5. Federal Army Navy Surplus is the only store I know of in Seattle. Mostly newer stuff but they have some older items like WWII shovels and first aid pouches. Might be nice to just check it out but don't expect to find any deals there.
  6. The other week ago at an estate sale I met a 1st Cav Vet who said he knew someone who brought a grease gun home in his duffle.
  7. That's a great find. I see those all the time but most have repainted and are often missing the tray. Good to see one in original condition
  8. Those are awesome. Very interesting modification
  9. Inside has rusted pretty bad and there is very little of liner left. Missing both of the chinstrap bales too.
  10. Bought this helmet online at a fair price with the idea of restoring it. When I received it today I realized that there was the 5th Infantry Division insignia painted on the front. Now I think I'm gonna just try to strip the gold paint on the top and leave as much of the original paint on it as I can. I was thinking of using Goof Off as I've seen on other threads that if applied carefully it does a good job of removing top layers of paint while leaving the original base coat intact. Anyone else have any suggestions to remove the gold paint? Thanks Very happy with this helmet as my great-gr
  11. I’ve ordered from them twice with no problems. Although I received my orders the week after I purchased them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hello from another Washingtonian Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Now that’s an interesting combination Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have seen this before at my local surplus store and today I just got this in a patch lot. It has hook and loop attachment on back. What is this? Thanks
  15. Those are some great patches. My friend’s father is a pilot in the 160th SOAR stationed at JBLM. Thanks for posting Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. That’s unusual. Never seen one like that before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Thanks everyone for your comments. I really appreciate you guys sharing information and opinions on this. Glad there's now picture evidence of a similar uniform.
  18. Yeah I should’ve taken a picture. I went back to the thrift store yesterday and it was gone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Found this picture while searching for something unrelated. Looks like his jacket is also in the ACU cut, name tapes are the reddish brown, and he's got subdued SF patches. Link for the article: http://warriorsos.blogspot.com/2011/07/interview-with-us-special-forces.html
  20. I enjoy hearing everyone’s opinions and I know that people on here have way more knowledge than I do which is why I posted this. I think we have all reached the consensus that this is NOT regulation. But that doesn’t dismiss the possibility that this could be a real uniform created under certain circumstances (as mentioned by others on this thread) However there is also the chance that this was not intended for military use.

  21. That’s interesting, makes sense that he would’ve gotten the reddish brown thread if he got the tapes on an AFB. I’m guessing the guy didn’t wear that uniform for very long? Which would explain why the uniform here doesn’t show much wear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Great you found the info! Very interesting thanks for sharing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. See the little white/grey tag on the wearer’s left sleeve? It said Multicam (My apologies I knew I should’ve taken a pic of it). So I thought it was actual Multicam? But interesting note on the Velcro color. I wasn’t aware of that. And yes I believe this uniform was laundered a bit too, but definitely not worn a lot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
