    Default opinions on my A-frame please.

    hi, I have just joined the forum and glad I found it has allot of useful information, I have had this A frame for about 10 years but have never really known if it was a real one or not what do you guys think. I don't want to mislead anyone by saying its a real one or not and would rather have your expert opinion.

    thanks

    Looks like a good one, made from the internal web straps, that were used on the M36 uniforms (before the Y straps were introduced....)

    It does look like the hooks are repainted, and the straps could be replaced (not saying that they are for sure, but I see re stitching where the straps for the"Zelt" go through the lower part of the frame....

    Pictures are not particularly sharp.....

    here pictures of my "internal straps" A-frame

    thanks allot,

    I never even knew the top straps where tunic internal straps I always wondered why the holes are in there and never twigged its for the hooks to go through. where they used when material was short at the end of the war or just to use spare parts up ?

    I picked up this Breadbag not too long ago that has the same type of strapping attached.
    I couldn't quite figure out what it was until now, thanks to you guys...
    I believe that Original A-Frames have always been scarce & highly sought-after...
    cheers, Glenn
