    I think going by responses, you either like them or hate them....

    Each to their own

    I don't mind the odd repro for detection comparison purposes to original items. and also you can play/break a repro with no real worries

    eg. Repro M1 Short Bayonet

    My only "repro"... authentic post-war M.33 Italian helmet that I got made to look like a wartime Alpine troop (Alpini). I've never seen an authentic one for sale...

    I also have a few repro items on my rifles. For example, cleaning rods and leather slings on my Russian capture K98k and Type 99 Arisaka rifle. The real deal would be WAY expensive, and would probably cost more than the individual rifles I'd attach them to (all my rifles are shooters, not really display pieces)...

    Guys,the last thing that a collector wants in his collection is "repos" I feel that a repo will detract from the legitimacy of the entire collection.When yon buy one the "fantasy market wins" KEEP IN REAL.
