    Default "A" - Frame / Combat Assault Pack (Gurtbandtragegerüst)

    Hi Guys, I don't think I have shown my "A Frame" on the forum before? So I thought it would be useful for people to see a good original example. Fakes of these abound and some are very well made.

    Mine is a very early 1939 dated example. Study these pics well if you intend to buy one.

    Sorry, but before anyone asks it is not for sale.

    Here is a useful site which shows more details:

    Cheers, Ade.

    probably the most faked piece of equipment, but they will never get it completely right

    That is a "sweet" item you got there Ade

    Hello,
    This is a very nice A-frame Adrian, Thanks for sharing it with us.
    Although A-frames are not very rare, yours includes some particularities that make it quite special. First of all, it is 1939 dated, this is quite rare as it is the year this piece of equipement was adopted. It includes brown leather straps & loops, as the vast majority generally includes black leather. It is already made at this date with tan/light brown webbing when 90 % of all A-frames i've seen so early dated were made of grey webbing...
    Here's one of my A-frames, a tropical version of the scarce to find first type, with Zeltbahn straps that have buckles including a prong instead of rolling buckles...and loops still made of leather
    It is 1941 dated....
    Thanks

    Ah JPilip, it may not be rare for you because you know where to look. As in my case once a upon a time i use to find them quite regularly when i did not want one but now that i do want one i can't find one My mannequin is not tropical so i can not use a tropical A-frame.

    Yours is very impressive by the way.

    Ade, great thread to show what the real things look like.

    Lars should post his '39 dated one and Tom also I think !

    Then a reference point of all these early a frames would look excellent.

    cheers
