Difference between canteens?

Postby Komrade » Sun Aug 28, 2011 7:34 am

What is the difference between a canteen like this:

And a real ww2 one? Is it just the fact that that^ one has paint on it?

The main difference is in the caps. See half way down here http://www.ww2airsoft.org.uk/php/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=5289&p=199847#p199847 for a comparison. Otherwise they are pretty much the same. You get both painted and unpainted wartime examples too.
