    I was just wondering whether any of you thought that the Worldwide Arms sten bandoliers that they were selling 2-3 years ago were ex Israeli or ex UK army? Did the Israeli's have them at all and if they did were they home make or ex UK army stock?

    Finally blanco-to do or not to do-that is the question....

    Welcome Andy,

    I personally stick to MeCo WW2 dated webbing when looking to collect pieces of this kit.
    The reasoning is that, MeCo were a good quality Britsh manufacture, as well as putting the same branded webbing together.

    As for blanco-ing .. I personally steer clear of these items ...I like to seen "as issued" clean webbing.

    Sten Bandoliers ... although that is one piece still on my shopping list, a clean MeCo dated one would be my target.

    Cheers
