I need to take out a mortgage on my house to afford this camo eddtion.
I know that feel. I just can't turn down sweet Swissurp.
When did you email him? He's a busy guy.
Lol I was waiting for someone to get annoyed by that. I just put on everything that Cadet sent me.
Yeah looks like the last time he posted was on Friday. I don't know, maybe something came up. Did you try to contact him through his Facebook page?
Well /k/ I did it. Already cleaned bore/de cosmolined the bolt.
What do I do next?
Depends on where you go. If you shoot the surplus stuff you need to clean it ASAP because it will start rusting the bore after a few hours. You can spend a few more dollars on non-surplus non-corrosive stuff and feel confident in your ammunition not destroying your gun.
IT'S ABOUT GOD DAMN TIME!
If you've got Gmail check the Promotions tab, that's where it defaults.
To the guy wanting a picture of the CADPAT Patrol Pack
So I have matching serial numbers on the Bolt, Chamber, and Butt plate.
Is there anywhere else that is serialized? Also what is the advantage of matching serial numbers?
Reminder that milsurp CAN give you a boner.
The stock is probably serialized somewhere under the barrel. For less-than-perfect guns (like the Mosin) matching serial numbers would guarantee a proper headspace so you don't have to worry about the gun blowing up. Other than that, it may add to the value, if it's otherwise a valuable gun.
My K31's bolt and magazine don't match but I give zero shits, it still shoots like a dream.
Reminder I got an East German helmet cover for free with an M56/76 for $30
Anyone know what the square with the X through it means? I can't find it anywhere.
Directly under the serial number
So basically I need a sling?
Where can I find a tasteful stock bandolier ? Leather>Nylon
Did you win or loose?
That doesn't seem bad at all.
Slings are personal preferences, really.
IT'S LOSE and no, I didn't LOSE it, I one it.
Expect an email regarding the group order's shipping timeframe later this evening.
Are those issued or did you buy em off ebay? You can get custom rank slipon nametape and canada (or others) flag at CPgear.com
>all of it
Surely you don't want to see my tactical panties b-baka hentai! (Yes I am.)
>quints and dubs confirms
They're issued. I got the top, bottoms, and gloves from a Canadian who frequents these threads.
Dreams really do come true!
Ride eternal, shiny and chrome!
Too poor to buy a set of Afghankas
>place order with Centerfire Systems
>order goes through fine
>get billing statement email
>noon the next day they tell me the german riot jackets are backordered
>nothing on page indicated it was out of stock
>they say they'll just put the order together and bill me when they get more in
>ask them if they can give me a tentative date for when they'll be back in stock
>"No I am sorry we do not."
>check riot jacket page again
>nothing to indicate it's out of stock, can add it to a cart and everything
I can't tell if they're simply incompetent, or if they're trying to fuck me over somehow.
Advice? It seems weird that their plan is to just sit on my order until it comes back in stock, even though they don't seem to have any idea when or if that will happen.
I bought a PPS-43 parts kit through them like two years ago and there was no issue.
BTW here's the jacket. Page is still up. No notice that they don't actually fucking have them.
Just bought one of those w/ liner for the colder days that are creeping up. Can't say I'm displeased, it's warm and the pockets are insanely huge.
Got a nice pair of gloves to go with it.
I don't know anything about that website but it just seems like a fluke.
I'm sorry you feel that way. Go to your kitchen, get a cookie (or something else sweet, maybe some ice cream) and eat it, it will help you feel better about this.
Your guy was holding out.
He was fucking with me because I hate it when he misspells "lose."
I had a good month.
I think this is one of the older "loud and proud" tropical DPM shirts.
I've got a para badged set coming in too that was used on the show "Deadliest Warrior" coming in a few days.
>tfw barely went to goodwill this month
>only got one piece of milsurp
Oh well, a perfect fitting F1 jacket is a good find. Too bad I couldn't get it for $4 since it was with the shirts, had to pay the full $8.
Bid or Buy.
One without a tag and apparently a WW2 wing sold for $160 afterwards. I slept through the auction since it was after an exam and I was exhausted.
I also missed a full zip one tarted up with repro patches and Pattern 37 webbing for $200 a few weeks ago.
Is that still British?
I'm going to pretend I know what that is and say good find.
I went back into my old combats which haven't been worn since I was in cadets and I found. 5 dollars, some MRE hot chocolate, a pen and a slip on.
>tfw the feeling when you have 3 CS95 DPM shirts in your closet but you only ever wear 1 on occasion.
As I said, the darnedest things. Still have no clue how an EG 7.62x39 round made it through customs in a shirt pocket.
Well I've had packages with shell casings in pockets not get opened up at customs then oh no there's a scary pen in a pocket we're gonna tear open the package hold it for a week then reseal it and send it to you. Fucking maple syrup land customs.
The last few packages I have gotten have all been opened up at customs. Like Cmon maple syrup people you get a fuckton of these a month for me I'm no Terry I'm a collector.
>tfw ban assault packages - Canadian customs.
My imports of old Lego and that Russian camo over suit weren't opened. Kek Post indeed.
And my "Canadian Army '82 Pattern Web Vest."
Made a lot of changes to this, attached an OD med kit packed full, a trench knife, MRE's+map+blanket to the back pouch, pair of gloves using paracord, etc. Looks ghetto as fuck, is great for hiking.
Well they certainly weren't going to use it. ;^)
Joke's on you it's a slightly off copy of an actual camo. Clue is in the name, karst.
Where can I find one of these cheap and nicely made. Would love to support a /k/ommando if at all possible
>Romanian VAT is 24% and I can;t wiggle out of it since I don;t have a UK VAT number
>Can't list as a sample because they're providing a manufacturing service not just selling me goods
Well that's another 14$ per.
Also comes in blue, jungle and a black variation..... Bitches be styling
Any of y'all want to LARP as a Finno-Ugric lieutenant?
Also, it's scary how good at that you are.
You tell me. I just got another Pattern 40 battledress jacket for $40.
How much is that worth? ...also what country is it from?
Didn't even see your post, sorry bud. Swiss Link, Varusteleka (supposedly they are going to have low shipping prices soon), Kommando Store, and eBay. Ebay merchants are best kept to oneself, because otherwise you are making yourself spend more money (also some merchants are posters here so that would be bannable). One guy is floydsboy (who is not affiliated with me or anyone else here). Other than that, you'll have to find them on your own.
Thanks, but no thanks /fa/sion police.
Das ist nicht schlecht
That actually looks pretty cool.
Do it. There's like no way you'll make repros of the original cut, those are complex as shit. It's still awesome looking fabric, though.
FUCK YES! It's my favorite pattern and I would love to have a set to use and not worry about ruining.
Ha! 70" it is.
I'm like a 34-36 now would you believe. I guess I'll err on the side of 36 and just have belt loops.
Which is weird, because it's made in Germany.
germany is indeed no fun atm
>not a single piece of nature that isnt 1/2x1/2 miles or is flooded by hikers or has strict NP regulations
>strict gun laws, no innawoods shooting
and last but not least
>going to shit in eu crisis cuz muh nazi guilt
Basically, a kid with autism gets caught up in the hateful racist vitriol of Rhodesia liberation folklore, draws racist cartoons and then he decides to knock off the camouflage in MS Paint and with the help of some Mexican that makes a living selling surplus garbage with /k/ memes doodled on the boxes.
It's taken 4 years with no results so far, in the mean time the Rhodie guy kills a bunch of innocent Black Baptists at a church in the name of White Rhodesia.
What's even funnier is he's some sort of jungle gook and the camouflage is going to be in a crappy US BDU style, and there are numerous other better replicas already on the market.
Basically, it's a meme-ridden autistic circus.
>Round up to 32in
HELP! A SPOOKY SCARY SKELETON!
czech worm camo 1992

36" master race.
Got a 2001 dated Woodland marpat.
Pre-issue marpat mmmm it's greener and a softer cotton mix.
Wouldn't surprise me, I feel that I've been getting half of what I should be.
I'm not sure I'm into milsurp like the rest of y'all art...but I got drunk the other night and ordered some stuff from Sportsmans guide, including a 6-pack of Bundeswehr longjohns. They're actually pretty comfy...fit kind tight around my calves but the material is nice and it's almost like a rough fleece inside. Been wearing them as PJs all evening, think they'll be great for when the real winter sits in and I wear them under my work pants
That's how it starts man, that's how it starts.
You're in the right place.
So were you guys saying you'd prefer black buttons over silver buttons? I kinda like the silver buttons. After seeing the black buttons on Tropentarn I don't like the contrast.
That's exactly how I make every wishlist and half my online milsurp buys.
Being sober knocks all the shit that won't fit me or my wallet of that wishlist or pushes it back.
Alright, I'm looking to get a good winter jacket similar in style to a Gorka. I live in Colorado, so shit gets pretty cold. Any good ideas?
>inb4 get the gorka
I would but it just seems way to thin for mountain winters.
Can you guys help me? I've had this coat for years. I think it's milsurp but I haven't seen anything to tell me which military or if it actually is milsurp. Pic is the coat. It used to have little insignias on the outside of the lapel. They fell off a while ago.
Shit, that's more than I've been able to find out. If it helps it's got two layers. The inner can be taken out and still buttoned up. Fuck if I can tell what the fabrics are. There isn't any tags on it.
That's almost exactly it. Lapel is different, ditto with pockets, missing buttons on sleeves. Inside of that pic is different. Maybe just a variation from an different year than the one in your pic.
That one is even closer. Guess it's swedish. Explains why the damn thing is so warm in winter.
>doesn't understand military clothing
Why are you even here m80?
Rhodie to the rescue! I wouldn't have guessed that.
Yours is worn out compared to the picture Rhodie posted which is brand new so that's why they look a little different. I honestly thought they were totally different until I looked a little closer.
Is there a difference between gorka 3 and 4?
Fine, my trip is on and I did a quick screencap to prove I'm not based Rhodie. Happy fag?
Well like I said, mine's pretty old and has seen lots of use. I've used it as my winter jacket for about 10 years. Thankfully the only parts missing is the insignia stuff on the lapels, a button for the chest strap, and the cord for tightening the waist.
>he has alt trips
>he employs shills
Your drivel proves nothing except that you're one of his shills. I mean nobody but himself and the people he pays can call Rhodiecunt "based" with a straight face considering the damage he's done to /k/.
I'm sure you already know this, but you could easily re-sew on another button and get another cord in there (paracord and a coat hanger to guide it would work well).
>considering the damage he's done to /k/
Christ mate, quit being some dramatic.
>normalized meme store commercialization and advertising on /k/
>started a new general with the most autismal nogunz population seen to date
/k/ was objectively better before he came.
I've never seen his trip outside of this thread.
I wish he did pay me to be a shill. It would be nice to have a little extra income.
Why wouldn't I call someone based who has done nothing but help me?
In short, I think you're one of the people (maybe the only one?) who loses their shit over trips. Which leads to you to inordinate amounts of shitposting because "muh trips are cancer!!111!!"
Feel free to keep shitposting anyway. We're almost bump limit.
Oh I know. I just don't care too much. I always thought the strap was uncomfortable anyway. But thanks for the help.
Thank you also Rhodie.
There's more than one person suspicious of him and what he's trying to pull on /k/.
I mean the way he's acting in this thread is suspicious in itself:
>doesn't even try to defend himself or his project
>doesn't tell sources or even items coming in >>27778694
And this is despite the fact that posting photos from auctions is the norm here. Like fucking hell get real. Does anyone believe he really got a WW2 uniform for $40?
So one post is terrible shitposting? I also don't see how the post was shitposting in the firstplace. It was about rhodesian laws in a thread about rhodesia. Though if he's running a project he'd better give us some progress.
Wasted trips to be honest family. It didn't seem like he was trying to create a circle jerk, just mentioned an opinion piece in some rhodasian magazine. Unless you count that using his trip is attempting to create a circle jerk. Which would be your fault for responding to his "identity" instead of the information he provided.
Kinda what I'm getting at. I don't know when this project started but if it's been over a month without any progress, I'd say it's dead Jim.
God damn, I love it when you cite this.
First, you make it clear you are the only person shit posting because you literally cite this and only this every single time
Second, He isn't even shit posting in that thread, his post was 100% on topic. It was you (or at least most likely you) who shit posted in that thread.
>he used to shitpost much much more
Can you cite any examples? I don't need a link to the threads, but when has he actually done legitimate shit posting?
>doesn't tell sources
I never give my the sources of my merchants either, except for these last few because most people here aren't interested in buying Swissurp. Also those merchants don't have anything else I'm interested in.
He just made the pattern, everything else is Nugget Enterprises.
>Projecting this hard
I think it was you who wanted to make the thread about yourself, seeing as how you were one of the main contributors to its derailing.
What? Where are you coming up with this stuff?
>because there is none
>implying I'm a shill
>trying this hard.
First time I've bothered to come into a milsurp camo thread. Mostly because I busted out my winter jacket and remembered that I always thought it was milsurp but could never figure out which country it was from.
Oh, actual update. I wouldn't worry too much about the project then.
Wait, you don't worry about internet security? Do you even opt out of PRISM bro?
>his secrecy is excessive
What secrecy? All I see is that he didn't say the merchant he got it from. And if he doesn't say, you aren't entitled to know.
>his claims are unbelievable
They were hardly believable to himself, that's why he posted it here. He got very lucky.
I got this jacket >>27778614 for $1, no one calls me out on that.
>no pictures until long after it came
Just because I post pictures of my stuff the day I get it doesn't require everyone else to.
I'm out for the night, I'm glad you got your question answered!
I don't post for a few days and you guys panic?
I have that shelter.
What are those? The elastic around the cuffs of the pants?
First batch of South African batch came in.
Hmm, maybe because my mine is the older model? There's no doubt that mine is legit, though.
What do your TAZ 90 pants look like?
>First batch of South African batch
If you're in Europe and you sell it to someone in Europe it's going to go for a lot less than to an American. The SADF kit is getting less and less common in America. I don't know exact numbers, though.
Huh, interesting. I wonder if mine was field-modded? Or maybe that's just what the old ones look like?
Complete newfag here, but I have a question. Do you guys only collect BDU's that will fit you? Or do you just buy whatever because it looks cool? I'm fat as shit so I don't know if I'll ever find cool stuff in my size. I'm 5'11 at 240.
I usually aim for things that fit (or at least that I can wear for camwhoring). I don't always get things right, though.
Size is my first priority, I'm usually too broke to afford ultra-rare shit. Because I'm a spooky skeleton, size usually isn't usually an issue.
I know some of you have those winter East German rain drop sets. The quilted thing with the mutant gloves.
What do those bring? I got a set in the back that I haven't got around to researching yet.
Czech something or other. I forget the name but they made many tents out of it.
Good enough for me. Just don't be suprised if I'm spotty to reach from 1700-2100
Satan says only Medium Regular.
I do have US M81 woodland, French CCE and just plain OD as well.
You're overthinking it, I go out with a girl. It popped up on my feed and I saw the camo.
Just a fetlife profile. The feed depends on your friends.
Ivan is saying i should e-mail him for some reason, but very helpfully hasn't left his e-mail.
It won't happen.
A)because I'm selfishly hogging the pattern
B)The parka is too complex in my opinion
C)as you say it would devalue the parka and that is not what I would like
I want my own little name on my own little products.
I can't help but feel that a full production run of Karst Parkas would not be anywhere within the realm of reasonable profit, and there wouldn't be the demand for it.
He might be after something else though. Maybe the pattern for the Fleck Parka, or some advice?
I've got loads of other things I want to do.
Misprint M84 something
Metro fleck something
Recolour Auscam to OPFOR colours
Sure i had some other ideas.
Fair enough. How many are you making? Ten?
Anyone ever ordered from fatiguesarmynavy.com? I placed an order two weeks ago but they havent updated my order or shipped yet. called and emailed them but theyre ignoring it. Anyone else have experience with them?
I'll tell you what I do like though, the flecktarn overall. I like it a whole lot.
