    Hello, Im looking for some WW2 US webbing, but I understand it is reproduced. Can anyone give me any pointers on telling the authentic pieces? I'm looking at these items on ebay, obviously the photos are not good, but are they likely to be authentic? Any help appreciated. Doug

    The two pieces pictured are the genuine article.They also look to be the Russian lend lease stuff as well.Sometime ago I don't know when, there was a huge amount of unissued belts, Thompson mag pouches, .45 pouches and first aid pouches discovered in Russia.Im guessing this was all sold off to dealers and so you see it everywhere.As for telling real from fake...look closely at the metal fittings and the quality of the webbing.The repro stuff is usually 'off' in colour.WW2 US stuff is OD3 in colour(light tan) late war and postwar stuff is OD 7 (green).If youre unsure of a bit you like post it on here and ill be glad to help.Ive been collecting US webbing for over 15 years now.
