I have an 82nd Airborne kit from the Normandy jumps, but its M41 not M43, would this be appropriate?

Thanks


That will be fine :good:

Hi Chris

Standard 350fps or up to 500fps for single shot rifles with a minimum engagement distance of 25m.

We will flesh out the rules section in the near future so every knows whats expected :good:

I'm hoping to go to this one and if I do I'll be British, however I'd better make sure I have travel arrangements first.

Based in Dudley and would be happy to provide transport for any body enroute for Saturday.
I have nearly all my kit, and should be complete by then but my friend has only a cap and smock, he needs as a minimum some webbing and trousers. He is size 36 trouser and 40/42 chest.
Hopefully we will have mp40s by then as well.

We will have modern boots hopefully this is ok?
