Forum rules
All sales placed here are private and this forum takes no responsibility for the conduct of these sales . Please make sure trade sales are clearly marked as such, if you want to discuss having a trade sales area please contact the forum admin by PM.

Only WW2 related items be posted for sale on this forum. Look a-like items are fine, but not guns (etc) that are clearly not WW2 at all. There are other forums for selling modern airsoft items, lets just keep this one to stuff appropriate to WW2, please.

Also, if you're not intending to make an offer, have a query or buy an item then please don't post. We don't want for sale threads to go off topic or have loads of "ooo I like that, but can't afford it" posts on them.

When the sale is complete can you please edit the title to include the word SOLD and then lock the thread to show it as complete. Do not delete or edit the thread as it is a valuable guide to going market costs for your fellow forum users.

Bumping After 21 days your post will automatically be given a 'bump' feature - please do not make 'bump' posts prior to this - it's a bit like pushing in the queue!

Whilst we have decided not to stop the advertising of Realistic Imitation Firearms (RIFs) on this forum, please note that as from 1st October 2007 the Violent Crimes Reduction Act severely restricts who and what you can sell to other people. It is the seller's responsibility to ensure that sales complies with current legislation. Under 18's cannot buy or be sold an airsoft gun. Anyone under the age of 18 attempting to buy a RIF will be banned from the forum.

British law covers age restriction on the sale of knives in the Criminal Justice Act 1998:
"It is an offence for any person to sell to a person under the age of 18 any knife, knife blade, razor blade, axe or any other article which has a blade or is sharply pointed and which is made or adapted for causing injury to the person."

The WW2 forum offers this free advertising as a service to forum users. We take no part in either vetting sellers or purchasers but ask that sellers show respect for the law and point out that abuse of the dispensation granted to airsofters by the Home Secretary could be adversely affected by thoughtless or reckless sales activity.

I've also bought a size 03, before I bought it I found some pictures of the labels for size 01 and 02 Jerkins and they were;

Size 01: 5ft 3ins to 5ft 6ins, Breast(over jacket) 37ins to 41 ins
Size 02: 5ft 7ins to 5ft 10ins, Breast(over jacket) 37ins to 43 ins

so hopefully a 03 should be good for 5ft 11ins to 6ft 2ins and upto a 45inch chest.

That looks like a post-war one... Actually in vinyl rather than leather.

The thing to look for is the fact that the "leather" appears to be in one piece rather than in loads of random bits stitched together (which is more normal).

The ones Springfield have in stock aren't leather but they don't look anything like these (they are much more rigid and thicker).

Still, we couldn't resist a bargain could we!

Well yes... I'm hoping to be proved wrong...

One thing did occur to me after posting that.

The reason (I think) that the wartime ones were made of seperate bits of leather was because they were made from scraps of leather. This was due to a shortage of decent sized bits of leather during wartime.

The seller says that they're actually post war Belgian. I guess it's possible that at that time there was more leather available and hence it was possible to make them from single pieces?

So, probably not 100% pukka, but pretty f'ing close!
