Collectors Item

Interesting that the canteens were made the BGS but never issued? I can't quite fathom that the government would spend that much money and not use them.

Guess I have a collectors item:laugh:

BGS Canteen

Hi,

Although I am pretty sure the BundesGrenzSchutz were not issued these kind of canteens, the color on it looks like a BGS green. It does not appear to be re-painted. The canteen is labeled...

T

Thanks for the enlightening post. I figured as much but didn't know for sure. That T after the stock number I thought did not look correct and you confirmed it.

Mil-Tec Flecktarn Rucksack

Hello,

Almost done with the closet clean-up. I did not think that Mil-Tec made issue items for the Bundeswehr. Yet check out the label inside this Flecktarn Rucksack.

Thoughts?

Preview

Perhaps make sure the photos are correct on your hard drive first? Also, I always preview my post before hitting the Submit Reply button, then if there are any problems, then I can fix them.

Private Purchase?

So, would a Bundeswehr officer purchase a Mil-tec map case for "official" use? I ask since it seems a limited market to produce to something like that for the private sector. Reproducing rucksacks is...

Mil-Tec Flecktarn Map Case

It certainly does. I meant to include these on my last post. It has a black Mil-Tec label on the inside. No stock number.

Flecktarn Map Case with Shoulder Strap

I dug this out my closet. Pretty sure I bought it at the SOS show many years ago. I don't think it is an issue map case but I wonder if it was a private purchase item?

It is far better than the...

P1 Holster

I agree Steve. It makes no sense that someone would make a reproduction of a holster when there is a surplus of issue holsters.

Were P1s or P38s issued to any other armies of police forces other...

Mystery solved. The seller informs me that it is a reproduction.

No other markings

I thought the 48 might be the year it was made but dismissed that idea as soon as I thought of it. Here are a couple more pictures.

P1 Holster Marking

Hi,

This holster only has the mark "48" on it. What does that mean?

Map Case or Kartenmelde

I recently purchased a Flecktarn Map Case or Kartenmelde dated 11/1995. I don't see provisions for a shoulder strap. How was it done?

Thanks,
Mike

Go With a P38

For what it is worth, I would go with a Walther P38 for your display unless you already have the Luger. The Walther PP would not be considered a front line pistol. Having owned both, the PP or PPK is...

I agree. Look at any photos from that time frame and almost all generals have the smaller pistols while field officers are carrying something bigger. No doubt there is always an exception but I...

Piton Hammer Pre or Post War or WWI or WWII

Hi,

Still cleaning out the closet. What do I have here? I know it is Piton Hammer. Is it post-war or pre-war or WWI? I doubt it is WWII. I suspect the gray as been added after the fact and it is...

Post-War ?? Rucksack

More stuff from the closet. No markings that I can find except for a stamped "93" underneath the top flap leather strap.

I don't think this is BGS. NVA or simply a civilian rucksack?

Thoughts?...
