  1. I have a OG107 green M65 with the green tag and all nylon zippers. 1986 contract date. Large Long
  2. By 1941 most of the existing M1903 rifles had been rebuilt at least once, so...any preWW2 part would be acceptable. As a matter of fact most of the early 1930s SA produced 1903 receivers were mated to serviceable used parts to make new service rifles from turned in low number receivers. “S” type grooved stocks were the most common and is shown in your pix.
  3. No idea one way or the other on the helmet but the movie was complete BS.
  4. Made like the German BeVo woven insignia of the time.
  5. Thank you for the info. Was the US marking just to help them sell better?
  6. Shown is a pretty nice cover I got. Marked US but no maker mark anywhere. The lift-the-dots look like WW1 ones but it has the large later hanger patch on the back. Color is between a OG3 and OG7. Material has a much lighter weight feel to it....almost like linen material and has a sorta mixed fiber content look to it. Gray wool inside that is coming off the flaps. Could this be Japanese? Do these have collector interest whatever they are?
  7. Stamps and heat transfer decals are no longer used. All hats and jackets come with machine embroidered EGA. The Marine only adds matched backing name and branch tapes also machine embroidered.
  8. Ken Nolan Co iron on EGAs were popular into the age of digital camo.
  9. Yes a importer. Blue Sky did not rebarrel weapons, only important refinish them. Many had the Blue Sky logo so deeply stamped the bore was damaged. They use to be used for parts and bases for building better rifles. Lots of carbines and M1s had that stamp, however time has allowed for lots of barrel swapping. I still have a horseshoe pit made with 2 Blue Sky barrels as the post.
  10. 1” from collar tip to the bottom most part of the chevron, whichever grade.
  11. Army wise I have not seen any such marking in over 20 years. SSN use to be on the duffel bag but that was cut out. Guys use to mark their web gear but CIF will not take it back like that, so pretty much nothing but name tags are used if anything. Army wise we really don’t need to mark everything as we don’t wash stuff like the Navy and Marines do...bulk washing.
  12. Outstanding group. Thank you much
