WWII/Korean War battle gear....

I figured I'd ask the experts, so....

I'm trying to put together (2) WWII/Korean War battle gear sets: one for an M1 Carbine, the other for an '03-A3. I need help finding a SOURCE of such gear, whether surplus or repro....it doesn't matter.

Any ideas? TIA

At least part of the items should be found at www.ima-usa.com

Shooter, I buy most of my Safariland duty leather on eBay, but they also seem to have a ton of military equipment, including pre 1700 stuff. Just run a search under "Collectibles:Militaria".

Thanks, guys. So far, I have a 1942-dated canteen/cup set, a 1944-dated E-tool, a 1944-dated mess kit...and a 1944-dated pack. I should have started collecting earlier...LOL

IMA has really cool stuff.

I got my 1917 Colt Holster from them. Its a re-pro but its very well done. I'll probably buy a Luger Holster from them too.

I checked IMA's site, but didn't locate the suspenders.

When I was looking for a WWII RAF holster for the 1911, I emailed IMA and they had several non-catalogued holsers. They may have suspenders that are not listed due to the limited number in stock.

you might google for WWII reenacting sites.

I'm trying to put together a british WWII era web gear and battledress set to go with my number4mk1 enfield, and i have found british stuff to be easier to find.

IMI's print ad shows WWII mess kits for sale.
